i'm new here and just recently started a mostly raw diet with a little bit of cooked animal protein (eggs) and i'm trying to keep my carbs to dr. bernstein's diet regimen 6-12-12.
so far this has worked amazingly well for me. in just 3 days i have been able to stop my insulin that i was on for over 2 years and my numbers have been lower than they ever were on insulin.
while i was on insulin i had to eat 5 small meals each day and eat snacks during exercise - just so my BG wouldn't drop too low. i was always afraid of it dropping too low - so i would eat too much and it would stay high. of course i was just spiking it and it would then drop... and on and on...
this morning my BG was 127!!!
i was told i was pretty much a type 1 and only making a little bit of insulin.
well, i guess that little bit is enough! at least so far.
i have noticed however that i have a lot more gas and bloating since eating so many green smoothies and salads... anyone know anything to help this?
i think my body has trouble digesting 3 'regular size' meals a day instead of the 5 little meals i usually ate.
but i'm still plugging away - and learning new things daily. i got dr. bernstein's diabetes diet and there are some good recipes in there - but i need some more green smoothie - or just low carb smoothie recipes!
