I’m almost 65. I weigh 242 after losing 50 pounds this last year. All my life I’ve been on either a low carb or moderate carb diet. Due to many other Illnesses I went plant based (Neil Barnard, Micheal Greger, John McDougal) and 9 months ago I started water Fitness. I don’t take any meds and the SLE Lupus, gastric issues, depression, have reversed from being bedridden to exercise 90-150 minutes a day. In reviewing my lab work from two years ago discovered my AIC was 5.9 so I joined a diabetes prevention program at the YMCA. I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant and almost everyone on family has diabetes. My fasting glucose was 105 last week so I don’t exactly fit being diagnosed as having diabetes. On 1200-1500 calories, <50 grams of fat and <120 carbs a day I’m not losing anymore weight. I’m also tired all the time. I wake sweating at night and tremble on the inside. I don’t have high blood pressure. My Apple Watch/health app says I’m doing great. I log, weigh, and record every bite I put in my mouth and record it in an app that calculates all the nutrient values. Last weeks A1C was still 5.8. Yesterday I bought a meter to track my glucose along with food to see what I was eating was to blame. So far gluscose runs from 98-140. I’d rather eat like a diabetic now before I become one but because of my diet choice I’m having problems getting my carbs down. I joined to see if any diabetics can give me advice on how to adjust my diet, I suspect I can’t lose anymore is because my body is pumping out so much insulin to keep my glucose as low as it is. So feedback is welcome.
