I have reduced my snacking on fruits, reduced starchy vegetables and legumes to a minimum, added half teaspoon of Amul Ghee to my lunch of chama rice, started taking egg and cheese with long wheat puttu along with a couple of spoons of grated coconut, and half a small banana for breakfast. ( reduced banana and Puttu)
Had a mid morning gooseberry juice with salt and some sunflower seeds.
My fasting blood sugar is always within range and it was 95 in the morning. Today's other figures : Post breakfast 117, post lunch again 117 ( had one banana and a segment of pomelo with tea) and post dinner ( chama, rasam, vegetable, a teaspoon of raw banana thoran, 2 small curry cut pieces chicken ) it is 131. I also had 3 segments of a small orange. (all PPBS figures between 90 minutes to 2 hours )
I am taking 16 IU Lantus shot in the morning. My pre lunch BS was 91. I feel light headed and headachy, but not hungry. Took 3 spoons of brine from the gooseberry pickle jar as I have been drinking plenty of water and could be losing salts. This contains salt as well as minerals and extracts of gooseberry, garlic etc in the pickle.
Do you think that I can reduce Insulin to 14 units?
I have not added much fats except 1/2 tsp ghee. The egg I used to have three times a week and I used to add Rubco Virgin Coconut Oil to my breakfast along with cinnamon powder on most days. We cook with coconut oil. What I have reduced is the legumes and pulses. I used to eat half a cup in various preparations.
