LCHF

I am T2 0n LCHF for the last 1-2 months -my HbA1c is down to 5.6

In the last 2-3 days for social reasons i had 3 consecutive high carb meals- rae slippage but I feel we must be prepared for such failures - can someone guide me as to how I should bounce back- ofcourse I am back to LCHF now

Also I have not lost much weight- what could be the reason?

Pls help

Reason for what? BTW, did you achieve 5.6% without drugs? How hi was your HbA1C?

Walk before, after wedding meal or both 'before and after'? I read about one Type I who took over 2000 calorie carb before a marathon or was it massive cycling program? (May be it was Dr. Bernstein or someone like him)...

Occasional diversion from diet is not going to impact much. It happens in most of the LCHF diet follower. Yesterday I had society annual meeting. Where I had to take some food items which I normally don't consume or have them in limited quantity. After two hours my PPBS was 139. (for bringing down to that levels I had taken 20min. walk) Though it is normal by most doctor's opinions I always try to maintain it around 110.

well i am also sometime lose the diet chart , this days i am lil doing cheat but still keeping under 140 even on cheats well thats a beauty of LCHF diet coz it has so less carbs u have space for some cheats but though its strictly my own experience i am very sensitive to wheat and rice but i do taken them occasionally and so far getting away from it , and weight lost part i am actually losing weight i am on no walk just daily chores and my work but still it all depends on body to body in one month i lost around 8 kgs i was 84 kgs now i am 76kg ( but then i used to walk 5km daily but i changed that to my daily chores ) eating loads of nuts eating eggs eating cheese eating butter full milk (not much) keeping good BS numbers though i still feel i need to restrict so just keep the diet as you are as long as your readings are good and keep checking for the occasional spikes .

Today only i was out for a lunch break where i ate 3 roti and aloo sabzi and even had some chocolate still ppb 2hr was 140 which considering i never recommend someone this who is diabetic but in some situations u can't avoid but then i checked 3hr it was 110 so just keep checking but in my case today i skipped BF so it might have not gone bad as it could have been ! .

Hidden: You have talked about refrigerating rice. Is it for both boiled and fried rice? Secondly, do you reheat after putting it in the refrigerator for 12 or 24 hours?

There is something called "Kodri" in Gujarat. Looks and tastes like rice, but with a very low GI, perfectly suitable for LCHF diet

Reply

Is Kodri long grain rice?

Reply

I would not know about that. Let me check with doc who recommended it

This Foxtail Millet is also called Varai? Is it varai in Marathi?

Varagu is which language ? Can anyone clarify

Reply

Could be. Let me do some research and get back.

Reply

Yes, you are correct. That is the product

Excellent research. I use Kodri once in a while, when I feel like having rice.

Tastes good with Rajma and Sambhar!

Foxtail millet is called Kang in Hindi which is not the same as Sama
