So, folks: a year and a half ago, I left the "Low Carb Daily Menu" thread and started this thread, because I had embarked on a mission to lower the fat in my diet (to try to accommodate the concerns of a new PCP, and to induce her to continue to prescribe enough strips for me to test as often as I like).

While, for several months, I managed to reduce my fats, I have, in the long run, merely changed the
composition of my fats, through a drastic reduction in my consumption of cheese and heavy cream.


For comparison purposes:


For the one-month period PRECEDING the beginning of this experiment (Dec. 19, 2014-Jan. 18, 2015):

Average BG: 88
Lowest: 61
Highest: 110
Average FBG: 94.17
No. days where all readings <100: 21
No. days where at least one reading > 110: 0

Avg daily carbs (including fiber): 52 grams
Avg daily protein: 103.09
Avg daily fat: 150 grams
Avg daily sat fat: 54.3 grams
Days sat fat <50: 12
Lowest sat fat day: 33 grams

I successfully reduced fat for the first few months:


For the first month of this experiment (Jan. 19-Feb. 18, 2015):
Average BG: 91
Lowest: 58
Highest: 183
Average FBG: 88.14
No. days where all readings < 100: 7
No. days where at least one reading > 110: 10
Avg daily carbs (including fiber): 99 grams
Avg daily fat: 94 grams
Avg daily sat fat: 19.4 grams
Days sat fat > 23: 7
Highest sat fat day: 29 grams

For the second month of this experiment (Feb. 19-Mar.18, 2015):
Average BG: 89
Lowest: 57
Highest: 125
Average FBG: 88.81
No. days where all readings < 100: 11
No. days where at least one reading > 110: 5
Avg daily carbs (including fiber): 103
Avg daily fat: 105 grams
Avg daily sat fat: 25.4 grams
Days sat fat > 23: 16
Highest sat fat day: 41 grams

For the third month of this experiment (Mar. 19-Apr.18):
Average BG: 87
Lowest: 62
Highest: 131
Average FBG: 88.07
No. days where all readings < 100: 11
No. days where at least one reading > 110: 5
Avg daily carbs (including fiber): 101.5
Avg daily fat: 103.6 grams
Avg daily sat fat: 23.2 grams
Days sat fat > 23: 13
Highest sat fat day: 36 grams

But, by fall of last year, I had pretty much reverted, with respect to fat intake:


For November, 2015:
Average BG: 86
Lowest: 64
Highest: 151
Average FBG: 88.52
No. days where all readings <100: 19
No. days where at least one reading > 110: 3

Avg. daily carbs (including fiber): 110.87 grams
Avg. daily protein: 120.27 grams
Avg daily fat: 148.03 grams
Avg daily sat fat: 45.27 grams
Days sat fat <50: 20
Lowest sat fat day: 24 grams

For the last 30 days:
Average BG: 91
Lowest: 66
Highest: 114
Average FBG: 91.61
No. days where all readings <100: 13
No. days where at least one reading > 110: 2
Avg. daily carbs (including fiber): 100.03 grams
[Highest: 132; lowest: 52]
Avg. daily protein: 125.8 grams
Avg. daily fat: 147.03 grams
Avg. daily sat fat: 46.33
Days sat fat <50: 19
Lowest sat fat day: 23 grams

As you will note, I never got my average daily carbs much above 100--and, for the last couple/three months, I've greatly increased my intake of fiber, to approximately 40% of my daily total carb intake.


Anyways, even though I've doubled my average daily carb intake, I think it's fair to conclude that my daily reports are better referred to as low-carb results, than here, as part of a "lower fat experiment," and I will be rekindling an appropriate thread. Please come visit there.
