So where is the Dr. Bernstein's book or other relevant materials?

Welcome to the family Ian! We do a lot of learning from each other.

I just got here to TuDiabetes. I'm a patient of Dr. Bernstein's since September. I love his regimen and have gained such good control in a short amount of time! I look forward to getting to know you all and bounce treatment options off each other. I have a small page too where I post tidbits I've learned @ www.facebook.com/thebetacell I'll try and share them here as well when I can.

Snickerdoodle Baking Day....about 2 carbs/cookie after adapting a recipe. Seriously Yummy. It's been a long evolution, but it seems to be that my daughter has taken up the torch to bake up dozens of her Gramma's great holiday cookie recipes in time to send them off to all of us (my sweetie can eat them & even I will indulge in a couple) and I do post-xmas lo-carb alternatives. As I always hope---everybody likes my sugar free/ nut flour versions....It seems to me a valuable educational tool--cookies (at this time of year in particular) that delight the palate and are lo-carb---what's not to like!.....

I sometimes think that when I say I eat lo-carb, folks think I eat nuts and berries on cardboard!...Blessings on all of us and our delish food choices!

Does anyone know off hand Dr Bs latest recommendation for a BG tester? Mine just kicked the bucket. Thx
Comment by Fritz on October 3, 2013 at 8:12am

BG was 98 this morning (low carb really works for me) and I'll hold off exercise until this pm. We'll see where it's at before lunch. Thanks FHS, I found the Berstein chapter on exercise. Have only been on this diet for couple of weeks, but am surprised how easy it is to follow. I'm sure boredom will be my biggest foe.

Hey Fritz. Could be DP like Badmoon suggests, or it could be a response to the type of exercise itself. Lot's of people report that certain types of exercise will cause post-exercise spiking. It seems to be an individual thing regarding the type of exercise, duration, magnitude of response, etc, but the general occurrence seems fairly common.
