I hit my goal weight in August, but even on LCHF, I'm having trouble maintaining it. I easily gain weight and then go 3-5 pounds over my goal, so then I cut back and end up falling 3-5 pounds below...

Cooking food makes it more easily digestible. As for whether it's more nutritious, sometimes no and sometimes yes. I don't think there's anything intrinsically superior about a raw food diet. On just...

I try not to use exercise to lower my blood sugar, as it encourages me to cheat on my diet. :) That being said, I have used it on holidays and special occasions. I don't drop anywhere near as much as...

Daytona, awesome A1c! I'm so happy for you that your doctor is thorough and supportive without being overly critical or bullying. That's a rare combination. My doctors all lectured me about my weight...

I've been fruit-less for about four years. I'm fine. Cravings aren't always a good indication of what your body needs, but rather what you want. And I respect that, as we all put food items on our...

Last year or earlier this year, my local grocery store (Dominick's) set up a table at the entrance for diabetes screenings. The person doing the screening asked one of the employees if she wanted her...

rudeboysti, I feel both bad about your situation and unbelievably resentful that you can eat those kinds of portions without gaining weight.

I think they're of questionable benefit. When my doctor tried to force me on them, I politely said no, and she was shocked. She marked that I was non-compliant in my chart; that's how worried she was...

I had the great fortune of being fat overall. That's right: no part of my body was spared!

Agreed. If anything, there's a reverse correlation. If you're obese, you're probably not diabetic; if you are a Type 2 diabetic, you are more likely to be obese. That should tell us everything we...

Your pre-meal level is fine. 145 at 2 hours would be a little worrisome to me. I try not to spike over 140 if I can possibly help it. If you can bring down your baseline to below 100, your spike...

Protein and fat metabolize a little slower. I often find my 3-4 hour BG is higher than my 1-2 hour, even if neither is "high." For example, if I have a lot of cheese, my blood sugar won't even start...

Also after dinner. I don't know why, but that's when I am most likely to over-eat and mostly like to eat off my meal plan. I try to keep myself occupied at night. Coffee helps. For some reason a long...

Funnily, xylitol spikes my blood sugar and maltitol does not. I ate half a rather large container of chocolate-covered almonds sweetened with maltitol and my BG hardly budged. I was so sad about...

On 20-30 grams of carb per day, it's most likely not LCHF that's responsible. I saw a brief increase in my trigs as I lost weight, but they fell back below 100 shortly thereafter.
