He did comment on a few very high meter readings ...I work for coca cola as a service technician, I have to remember to wash my hands good to get the syrup off before I test . It freaks the meter out,pure coke syrup has a high BG reading

I have been moving toward the LCHF over the last week or so. Actually, I am pretty much on it right now, though I intentionally eat a few high carb foods to see what kind of spikes I get. I just got a meter, so I am low on data points.

However, I am one of those who tends not to buy any of the sweets or other bad foods. That way, if I must break down, I am forced to drive to the store to specifically buy the item. If I really want it, driving is not a huge impediment, but most of the time I don't crave it enough to get in the car to go get it.

I am single, so I can get away with this trick.

How interesting that you work for Coca Cola! I bet it's challenging to be around all of those sodas.

A doctor who had never heard of LCHF? Really? That's unusual, isn't it?

You are so right, John. Do you think one of the keys is staying full? I find that when I'm really hungry I'm more likely to go for high carb. And then comes the roller coaster.

I have kids and I'm not enforcing low carb on them, so it's hard not to have "normal" food in the house.

We have a chicken and egg problem here. As long as you eat high carb treats, you will tend to crave them. When your body has been educated away from them, you are likely to find, like me, that you don't miss them.

I'm lucky in that my BH rules my diet with a rod of iron but others on the forum have found that they needed to be fairly draconian with themselves - clearing the house of the offending items and consciously deciding to avoid buying them despite demands from other members of the household.

Sorry, there's no easy option. Without reducing the carb content of your diet, medication and the roller coaster is what you have to look forward to[/QUOTE]
