Default Hi! My name is Barb from Indiana

I’ve been a T1 for 47 years. I’ve been on a Whole Food Plant Based diet for a year and a half but it’s not working for me anymore. Going back to Dr B and low carb.

Welcome to the forum, Barb! This is a great place to find information and support for many ways to manage diabetes, mainly because so many posters have tried many things and are willing to share what they've learned.

I'm curious. What were the factors that led you to try a whole-food plant-based diet? How long did it work for you?

Hi Barb, welcome to the forum.

Did you have problems with low carb or were you just looking for a change when you switched?

Hi, I've been living with Type 1 for a little bit more than 52 yeas (but whose counting LOL). One thing I've discovered is that as my body ages my metabolism changes and the way I manage my diabetes also changes.

This has led to re-evaluating my nutritional intake and even the kinds of insulin I'm taking. It's definitely an on-going learning process.

When you say "Whole Food Plant Based" do you mean lots of salads and stuff? Green leafy salads have always had a negligible affect unlike high carb vegetables like potatoes or processed stuff like pasta, most kinds of rice and breads - whole wheat or otherwise ...

It's too bad I love potatoes be it mashed, baked or deep fried but seldom go down that path anymore because of the negative affect on my BGs. Every now and then I still indulge but I for the most part try to stay away from those tasty spuds
