  • 1.well first thing first get your self a glucose meter for home if you haven't done so far !

    2 . start testing your morning after food two hours reading and write it down for a month it will show which food making Blood sugar high and avoid or tweak according .

    3. start counting carbs "Google" it search for example you need to know about carbohydrates in Rice so search " rice carbs " it will give you the carbs / per serving of 100g values bread , brown bread cereals etc note down and in LCHF diet you need to keep your carbohydrates maximum to 100g per day and its not a one day affair its a life long changes .

    4 exercise and meds take them regularly and with LCHF diet when you start and follow it you might even able to shed away excess medications .

    5 cut down roti and rice add more sabzi n daal and drink butter milk , add eggs if you eat them or else add one spoon ghee , butter or coconut virgin Oil to your sabzi eat salads and add nuts ( peanuts , almonds walnuts ) just follow it and you see the difference yes but keep taking medications on time unless you see your bs levels are getting normal then you can reduce them accordingly but for that you need to keep track of BS readings regularly its not one time affair or cure its just a lifestyle change and it helped many here ! .

  • You need to innovate meals for yourself. To control BS you need to reduce grains like wheat, rice, jowar, ragi etc. Reduce chapati in your meals. Add more vegetable preparations and salads to your diet. Eat all dairy fats, peanuts, almonds, virgin coconut oil. If you can eat eggs then can have omlet for your meals. Use full egg.

    Gradually reduce your carb intake to 100-120gm. Go through the links provided in your earlier post.

  • Cut diet to 2 chapati per day (weighing around 40 grams each) and use lot of chopped greens in dough and also VCO. Rest live around nuts, fish, eggs, vegetables (excluding potato, beet), curd (from whole milk) preparations.

    Throw everything that reads diabetic friendly out of the window.

    But, before this, follow what ninjarao has written.

    Key is, monitor your PPBS at home as you change diet and as you see sugar levels fall, remove drugs one by one. You have to closely monitor PPBS because fe HYPERS are ok but HYPOS can be real bad.

    For constipation, drink lot of fluids (water, green tea) and, it should ease as you drop drugs.

    Start your day with 1 black coffee with 1 TBSP Virgin Coconut Oil (if you suffer from hypothyroid then space it 2 hrs between your drug and coffee)

    Check carbs/proteins/fats from fatsecret.com/

    Limit carbs to 100grams/day and rely on good fat for energy. FAT will not make you FAT!

    Try and dig out posts of other LCHF followers. Many, including me, have posted our meals.
