Managing blood sugar and maintaining normal blood pressure

After the first post on this site, I was following the advice

On the lines of (golden principles) LCHF. Thanks to Mr. ANUP,, Mr. Pollock and others.I

I started taking as below:

In the morning at 6.30 am, I go for a walk almost 5 km daily.

I take herbal tea consisting of 1 tea spoon of saunf + 2 sticks of coriander, ginger, after Boling the above for about 5 minutes I add green tea to the filtered extract. And drink.

1) Break fast -

4 sticks of asparagus, Broccoli, 2 stick of celery,

2 leaves of Kale, lettuce, and one boiled EGG, ALONG with 4 to 5 small pieces of PANEER

At around 9 am.


LUNCH at about 12.30 pm

With one small chapati,

one small bowl Of curd

Vegetables / or chicken boiled with some cloves, black pepper, and green coriander without any oil. After it is cooked I add one spoon of homemade GHEE,

I take lettuce, Kale and finish the same.

I never eat white rice.


At 4. 30pm, one small bowl full of peanut, 4 kaju, 3 acrod,

And then go for walk about 3 to 4 kms.



One small chapati with daal curry and fruit vegetable

I regularly followed the above schedule since last June 2016,

And I could reduce my weight from 179 PONUNDS to

167 pounds.

My fasting blood reduced to 120 from 198

PPBSL is 140

My blood pressure is also normal.

  • Welcome to the LCHF club -- a club of diabetics where diabetics even with 2+ decades of diabetes history being successful in cutting down drugs by 80% and yet achieve far better numbers than following ADA recommendations.

    You are not alone. I personally know of huge number of Indians across the world succeeding on 20% carbs and 60% good Fats golden rule. Check my posts by clicking on my username and you will find few random success stories that I have posted :)

    Next is go for Intermittent fasting. Make sure you stick to 20% Carbs rule for life long and enjoy great health on least drugs :)

  • Good job, also let us know whether you are taking medicines or not??


  • No medications ()

    Apple cider vinegar( ACV) TWO TEASPOONS BEFORE MEALS.

    One Tablet of Gymnastics sylvestre in the evening for last one month.


  • even with out any particular diet , reduced consumption of food which amounts to lesser calories coupled with Gymnema sylvester twice daily brings down the sugar level.Gingkobiloba for good circulation and active brain ,Arjuna for good function of heart maintain the health . Gymnema increases the beta cell regeneration .

  • Well if he has already succeeded why distract him with concept of reduced food which can never work long term and has been proven through multiple studies, some I have already posted? If he was at the cross roads then it would have been a different matter.

    Beta cells lost are lost for ever. They can never come back even if one eats truckloads of gymnema. Does Gymnema regenerate or does it squeeze more insulin? We are against the idea of squeezing the pancreas to produce more insulin.

    How about treating a TYPE1 with Gymnema to prove the beta cells regenerate?

  • It is verified by me that Gymnema , tinaspora ,Aloevera , three herbs put to gether in homeopathic preparation , definitely helps in the regeneration of beta cells .As far as diet is concerned any diet works the same way as long as calories are restricted .TYPE1 DIABETES is totally different malady since it is more of genetic predisposition.Logically speaking it should act the same way even t1diabetes but the environment in t1 diabetes is different where the potentiality for generation of beta cells could be limited due to some genetic defect.This may be a wrong presumption but a probable explanation .

  • Many Type 1 diabetics have a honeymoon period too? How about trying to extend that honeymoon period with Gymnema if Gymnema regenerates beta cells? How are you so sure that it regenerates and not forces more insulin?

  • I would suggest that when I come across type 1 diabetic .

  • And also provide some statistics and numbers to back your OPINION. For me, unless I am sure that anything that I take is not increasing insulin production I will never touch that. Gymnema, if you can find that for me, it would be great. Till then, Gymnema is off the table as I have tried more than 8 (maybe more as I can't recall the exact number, I will have to check my account history at Himalaya) bottles of it from Himalaya and found it useless.

  • buy Gymnema and Tinaspora in a good homeopathy pharmacy and not in any rangatthayya shop , in mother tincture and use atleast for a minimum period of 40 days to verify the result . There is no need to take any other modern medicine . If you are not satisfied you can stop . OWN EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST REPORT AND NOT OPINION.

  • Everything is good when it comes to Himalaya. They have 8+ decades of existence with many trials papers on their website.

    Experience has to be backed by NUMBERS:

  • I am sorry to disagree .

  • We can disagree. I don't believe in anything except when it can be corroborated with justifiable data and numbers. There are tonnes of herbal companies, but Himalaya provides at least some trials papers.

  • data and numbers are just a different form of expressions which could be due to some other factors by way of omissions or commissions.

  • Better than no data at all and just opinions.

    If someone says that LW behaves like DPP4 drug or has some SU drug like chemical and provides no evidence, I am not going to fall for such opinions and I have a right to not believe in statements with no backing of science.

  • A very positive feed back is given by some people about long wheat . So why don't we go for long wheat preparations along with limited amounts of sesame seeds , pumpkin seeds ,muskmelon seeds , pomgranate seeds ,gingelly oil , butter milk , reasonable amounts of coffee ,curds , dal , vegetables which all give the food satisfaction and nourishment . Though the mashed pulp preparation given by sir George is said to be giving speedier recovery , the consumption of long wheat should give some positive reaction , though a bit slow .
