For thirty days I tested my overnight fasting blood sugars, this would be a baseline for future experiments. This post is more evidence, low carb paleo is beneficial for diabetics.
- I love to experiment and having a baseline allows me to compare future experiments.
- I have future plans, including resistant starch, fastings, highER carb, lowER carb, etc.
Typically I only test my blood sugars once every week or two, just to make sure I am ‘on track’, unless I am experimenting. I am typically well within normal ranges, sub 100 mg/dl. Keep reading if you doubt me. :)
Except on rare occasions when I might have an infection from sickness or a very stressful event … I am sub 100 mg/dl. My overnight fasting blood sugar is typically in the mid 70’s to low 80’s, even when I get sick it is usually in the mid 80’s to 90’s.
Low Carb Paleo is Beneficial for Diabetics
I am a formerly obese, formerly drug and insulin diabetic. I am still a diabetic but I successfully manage my diabetes using a low carb paleo diet and lifestyle. After reading this post, it should be obvious to everyone.
Update: Many in the Medical Industry continue to promote the lie that ‘low carb’ and ‘paleo’ are harmful. You can view my results after eating and living this way for seven plus years, in this post “My Anniversary in Pictures“. I assure you it is not harmful but beneficial! :)
Note: Before I achieved and maintained non-diabetic normal blood sugars, I tested my blood sugar (blood glucose) levels at minimum 4 times a day. Many days I tested 8-10 times …
Purpose of this Post
- Provide more evidence to diabetics, so that they can ‘see’ that there is a BETTER WAY!!!
We do not need to ‘carb up and shoot up’. Hopefully it will motivate diabetics to take control of their blood sugars via diet and exercise … TOO!
- To show people … yes I talk the talk, but I also walk the walk. :)
There are many on the internet who ‘talk a good game’ … but do they consistently day in, day out practice what they preach?
As I told someone the other day, “there are many pretenders on the internet… I’m not one of them.” :)
Results Through Day 30
Note: Never above 100 mg/dl fasting and only once about 90 mg/dl. I love that.
Clearly low carb paleo is beneficial for diabetics. :)
30 Days of Blood Sugars
People there is a better way!!!
Low Carb Paleo is beneficial for diabetics. :)
Start Thriving!!! … and not just surviving.
Close friends have told me the statement I made in the “Purpose of this Post” section above “might alienate some”.
Here’s why I wrote the phrase
“there are many pretenders on the internet… I’m not one of them.”
Routinely I hear from people who are still suffering from high blood sugars and almost all of them tell me one of two phrases about their meal plan.
“I eat low carb” or “I eat primal” (or ‘I eat paleo’) but upon further investigation, none of those complaining of high blood sugars … eat or play (exercise) like I do.
To sum up my meal plan in a phrase it’s mainly “eating fatty meats, eggs, coconut oil, butter and leafy green veggies” and if I were you… I would too. Once you normalize blood sugars, then you can add highER carb foods to see how you adjust, if you want to.
Too many diabetics are ‘following’ the advice of pretenders. If what you are doing is NOT working (sub 100 mg/dl fasting) … why not ‘do as I do’?
Give it a chance, it certainly works for me… and others. :)
Yes it may take time to completely wean off drugs and/or insulin, and some may never wean off completely… but if you do not eat a combined ‘low carb primal’ meal plan then you should start today. :)
Reduce Your Blood Sugar the Warrior Way
Below is my personal ‘diabetes care’ manual. It is truly diabetes friendly, not Big Food, Big Pharma and Medical Industry friendly. Every person who follows my plan improves blood sugar control. Not coincidentally, each person who follows my diabetes care plan reduces the profits of Big Food, Big Pharma and the Medical Industry.
