If you are a type 2 D, training your body to live with the impaired beta cells and the resultant low supply of insulin is what LCHF all about. You have to arrive at a suitable food, exercise and drug regime to lead a healthy life. As we cut down on carbs, increased fat intake becomes inevitable for a balanced diet. Key to success lies in selecting the right food items, exercise and drugs in that order. Drugs should obviously be the last resort. Each individual responds @ different efficiency levels to the changes we make in food and lifestyle, as the metabolism, body response, attitude to life, activities, calorie burning, etc vary from person to person. This means no "one size fit all" remedies. One has to experiment continuously with food ingredients, food habits and workouts. All you need is a small kitchen scale, a glucometer and readiness to improvise and experiment.
I am a living example of keeping blood glucose level under total control over the last 13 months without any chemical drugs whatsoever thanks to this forum, especially the brilliant research of medfree who shares his knowledge to this community.
I have arrived at a number of food items that enable me to enjoy a variety of food in spite of being a diabetic. I am no longer disappointed of being a D. Neither do you have to. Similarly, I have evolved my own exercise and yoga regimes to suit my needs considering my restrictions in moving my lower body due to disc prolapse.and a repaired hip joint.. My fasting and pp glucose levels is on par with non diabetics and the last quarterly value of HBA1C was a remarkable 5.1. My next quarterly test on A1C, lipid profile etc is due in June first week that I will share with you,
Take control, be smart and beat diabetes !!!!
