Looking at the day's menu you posted (thank you), I find it remarkable your blood glucose isn't even higher. What this means though - on the very positive side - is that when you make changes, they are going to result in dramatically lower readings. Your breakfast for example, was all carbs.

You're going to be surprised how quickly this will happen if you are able to fashion a diet that eliminates rice, bread, and the other things you're learning should not be in a diabetic diet.

It's going to take some work, but you'll be well rewarded.
True. I am hopeful that, I will get used to LCHF diet gradually. As I mentioned in the previous post, I have started LCHF diet from today, it wasn't that difficult though

Also, I have noticed fluctuation in my BG readings.

Yesterday night at around 9 PM, I had consumed Coriander leaves juice and few almonds, I checked my BG count at 11 PM and it was 89.

I took Voglibose 0.3 mg (as it was prescribed by my physician) before going to bed.

However, when I checked BG count early in the morning today at 6:30 AM, it was 141!

What went wrong? I am confused

Also, see if you can include more paneer and sprouts in your diet.
My doctor also advises weight training and cardio alternately. I do weight train sometimes(not regularly as I'm lazy) and go for brisk walks (5km) atleast 3-4 times a week and I'm seeing improvements.
Use apps like Runkeeper to measure your progress.

Do see if the above tips help you.

Cheers
Ajay
Thanks Ajay. Yes, I will avoid deep fried items.

I have started LCHF diet from today and hopeful that, it will bring improvements.

Perhaps deep fried, but don't avoid fats. With low-carb, fats are essential as they fill you up and keep you from being hungry. Frying foods in fats, and melting butter/ghee over cooked vegetables is a good thing.

Most of us avoid man-made fats and concentrate on natural, saturated fats such as dairy and animal fats, and unprocessed plant fats such as olive oil and coconut oil (unsweetened)

Welcome Santosh! It's great to see that you are giving the diet changes a try. I bet you will see your blood sugar quickly move in the right direction and am looking forward to reading your updates!

Thanks Daytona

Today is my 4th day on LCHF and I have already started seeing the difference! I was astonished to see the results myself.

I am regretting now that, why didn't I came across this great board a year before.

Yesterday, I have checked my BG count and they are as follows

9 AM, Before Breakfast - 116 mg/dL

10 AM, 1 hr post Breakfast - 125 mg/dL

11 AM, 2 hr post Breakfast - 106 mg/dL

2 PM, Before Lunch - 88 mg/dL

3 PM, 1 hr post Lunch - 117 mg/dL

5 PM, 3 hr post Lunch - 140 mg/dL

10 PM, 1 hr post Dinner - 136 mg/dL

11 PM, 2 hr post Dinner - 124 mg/dL

Today Morning,

6:30 AM, Before Breakfast -106 mg/dL

Also, kindly note that, I have purposefully skipped all the meds on yesterday and today to see the BG counts.

I am feeling energetic with this new diet regimen and I will continue to follow that.

I have read an article today on the forum and I would like to reverse my D-2 with strict diet followed by sensible eating.

Strict diet followed by sensible eating can reverse type 2 diabetes

Questions...


1. Am I doing right by skipping meds in the early stages of LCHF diet or do I need to take physicians advise?


2. Following is my diet since I started LCHF

Breakfast:

@ 7 AM

3 Egg omlets cooked with coconut oil + some cheese

1 cup of green tea

5 almonds, 5 pistachios and 5 Walnuts

@ 11 AM,

5 almonds, 5 pistachios and 5 Walnuts and a cup of Green Tea

Lunch:

12:30 to 1:00 PM

Salad ( cucumber + cabbage + curd )

5 almonds, 5 pistachios and 5 Walnuts

Evening at 5 PM,

Salad ( cucumber + cabbage + curd )

5 almonds, 5 pistachios and 5 Walnuts

Dinner

@ 9:00 to 10:00 PM,

Chicken Tikka + home made butter

Salad ( cucumber + cabbage + curd )

Does this sound right? Or do I need to add/modify anything?


3. Would it be ok to include, Onions, Garlic, Tomotoes, Mung bean sprouts in LCHF diet?

Cheers, Santosh

We celebrate with you in your immediate success. It's amazing, isn't it, how just reducing carbs will bring blood sugar levels down? So simple, but so overlooked by our medical professionals.

I'm afraid I'll have to disagree with the premis of this article. The diet is a calorie restricted diet - down to 600-800 calories a day - which is, in essence, a starvation diet. It's just not sustainable over time. And while it produced results, I would bet that if the people studied were visited again a year or two later, they'd be back where they started from. I'll stick with LCHF without calorie restrictions - it works and since I've been on it for nearly 5 years, I'd say it is definitely sustainable.

None of those things in large amounts, and beans in any amount, would be okay for me - but for you? Maybe. But only your meter can tell you that.
