I too have several of those symptons....... hand and fingerd go to sleep while on the mouse; waking up with my arm asleep. I say my doctor on yesterday but he didn't seem to think it was a problem because my #s all look good. I don't take meds only a low dose aspirin daily. I work out min 3 times a week and try to watch what I eat staying between 45-60 carbs per meals but still I can't loose any weight. I was concerned the numbness had something to do with my heart but all test say no. I'm so confused. :confused:

ok put tell me is there any way to get as low as 10-20 carbs per meal without turning into a vegeterian??? I eat mostly chicken, fish and turkey..... and as much as I love potatoes and rice they are seldom in my diet. Pasta maybe once a month. What else is left to take away???

Eat all you want of chicken, fish & turkey - it has very few carbs and yet your body can use it to manufacture glucose just as well as anything else. Do you use dairy products? Protein & fats are a diabetic's best friends, so enjoy eggs & cheese all you want also - and buy full-fat cheeses/cream/butter - if you're buying low-fat products, you're just buying more carbs than were there to start with. The less processing, the better.

I loved potatoes & rice too, but I never eat them now. What I DO eat is meat/poultry/fish, eggs/cheese, nuts, avocados, real cream in my coffee & real butter on my hot veggies. Real mayonnaise on my salads & real sour cream wherever I like. By "real" I mean full fat versions. You'll notice a difference & it'll be good. You won't feel deprived & you won't feel hungry.
Thank you! I will certainly try this. I want to get this right and I really do believe you often times get better advice from one who knows from experience than you do from some one who learned it out of a book.

I probably eat at least 2000+ calories a day. Believe me I don't starve. Things like bacon & eggs or sausage, bunless bacon cheese burgers, chicken parmesan made with almond meal instead of flour, free range beef stew with butternut squash and sweet potatoes, steak with grilled mushrooms. All the veggies you can eat are fine. I only eat Sprouted Grain bread because it doesn not spike me, so I can still eat sandwiches. Some people find lower carb bread or low carb tortillas to make wrap. I eat beans, so I can eat chillis with lots of beef, veggies and lots of spice. I even eat dessert. This morning I made a double batch of my own peanut butter cookies with no sugar or flour. They do not spike me at all. I also made a double batch of homemade Nacho chips similar in taste to Doritoes, again made with almond meal and flaxseed and cheese instead of flour. Again no spike. People always assume those of us who practice low carb must be eating rabbit food- far from it. Check out these low carb recipe sites
