I'm reading the Obesity Code by Jason Fung so I'm not posting much (I'm in learning mode ;). I decided against starting a new BP med to give metformin a chance to work alone. If my body adjusts to it...

This scares me too. I'm a rule follower by nature so I naturally believe what govt, docs and media tell me. I research everything and now suspect they're not quite right about most things diabetes...

I know it's a lot to start all at once but to start metformin (500mg only at night) I would have to lower carbs anyway. I'm not trying to go too low with carbs (around 50g) yet. The BP med is kinda...

Feeling terrible, just want to whine

Day four of low carb and metformin and I feel like rubbish already. Continuously running to the loo is hard when all your muscles feel weak. I'm hungry, I'm tired. Remind me how long I'll feel like...

I do look puffy most of the time. Difficulty getting my rings on etc. I think if this candesartan has no effect I will look at trying coversyl plus diuretic as it works for my mum.

So you're saying it's not the total calories but how they are made up? If I have calculated that I can only eat 1450 cals to maintain my weight you are saying I could eat 1800 and not gain weight if...
