Blood Sugar Not going down with Long wheat

Hello All Need some inputs .I am diabetic but not on medication . I have high Fasting blood sugars shifted my diet to Long wheat. I am taking 2-3 egg whites as breakfast and along with glass of milk. Blood sugar remains somewhere 135-150.Some times drops to 120s.Not very consistent. Fasting Blood sugar is 140-150.Lunch is small portion of Long wheat along with chicken or some times quinoa or just veggies. Dinner is Long wheat along with curd ,dal or veggies. Sugar shoots to 160 and if walk for a mile remains to 135.But in morning it is going to 150.Doing rigorous exercise daily for 45 minutes after exercise blood sugar drops to 112-125. Please suggest the way outs for this.Mr. George need your expert comments. Please guide.

Long wheat is starch. Starch turns to glucose, excess glucose is your enemy. Exercise is good, but no good to control blood sugar - you cannot walk off a bad diet, and yours is a bad diet - otherwise your blood sugar would be under control. All you have to do for goodness sake is go to Anup's D.life and do what he does. Alternatively go to the biggest site in the world and look at the success stories:

dietdoctor.com/diabetes

How anyone eats just the white of an egg is beyond me, but that's a side issue.

Remember the definition of madness is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

Increase the quantity of long wheat in your lunch, take eggs with yolk and stop milk. Do it for a few days and see the result. You are doing not bad. Have faith in what you are doing.

Try the advice from patliputra, I urge you.

After all you'll see the results in a few days and can follow the miracle for the rest of your life and be free of T2 diabetes.

On the other hand you have a computer, the web and resources denied to your less fortunate sufferers. Get busy with a little research and stop looking for miracle cures in one particular wheat strain that snaps my credulity.

Long Wheat does not do any miracle. LWMDR cured my T2DM over a period of THREE YEARS. LWMD does not produce any result overnight.

If someone cultivate Long Wheat he/she can not reap Breadwheat or Buckwheat fir the simple reason that the latter two are genetically different from Longwheat, even though those two contain Starch.

Best way is to try it out and check your blood sugar on home meter yourself.

In the current world of global trade...hope you Long Wheat is available near by you.

scientific study is experimental verification of the facts given by people who experimented and arrived at solutions. Be patient with your experiment .Diabetes is designer made lifestyle.

Stop milk including what you may be adding to your tea/coffee. Not sure what exercise you are doing, but as Mike and others stated you can't walk off a high sugar. I have personally found doing a High intensity workout or strength(gym/weight) training, far more beneficial to managing sugar levels vs taking a walk. A walk is a good activity, with some cardiac benefits but not your ideal solve for managing your sugars. Last but not the least, please look into the time of your dinner. From my personal experience an exactly same meal eaten at 8 pm Vs 10 pm with the same medication gives me very different sugar readings the next days. Do watch your meal timings. Hope u are not indulging in sugar rich fruits or cookies /biscuits for that matter.

Dear sraj73

Become swan...not stork.....this forum is for gaining guidelines... and understanding the experiences of others...

Diabetes is very different...for a diabetic you can not make a general statement...

So My advice is to read all comments...and apply your own brain...experiment...

Have one glucometer...check urself....

There are many ppl will tell...long wheat is just carbs...but they will forget that fats are just calories...

I guess many of them have not seen long wheat in life time....forget experimenting with that...

My experience is long wheat does not spike.

I am using it myself and getting good results....BUT PLZ DO NOT TRUST MY WORDS....you try yourself....experiment....

Just be swan....and I am sure you will be able to get good results...

"There are many ppl will tell...long wheat is just carbs...but they will forget that fats are just calories..."

That one coming from you surprises me.

1) carbs too are calorie

2) fats are just calories. Well since we can't metabolise carbs we need to change our fuel. Good fats are a good option. Prots get converted into glucose and the its end metabolites put strain on kidneys.

We have to restrict our carb intake.

very true suramo bhai....

We have to restrict carbs.....there is no doubt.....but same time we have to restrict calories also.

Have you done some research on this MikePollard ????

He is not revealing his diet here....but on some other forum...he admitted that he is restricting calories as he wants to reduce his weight.

google for Michel pollard.

I don't think it is true that unrestricted consumption of fats will not result in gaining weight.

No doubt a diabetic has to restrict carbs....and add more fats ...but till the limit of his total daily calories requirements.

You will surprise..that when ever I eat Bajara....my sugar goes up as expected....but then I see drop in fasting blood sugar.Why??? I don't have explanation. You try yourself....

Hi Cure,

"My experience is long wheat does not spike."....

Any grain spikes ...and rice and wheat of any sort are among the toppers in the list... I must say that just skip wheat(or any gluten) for a week from all of the meals and see the magic numbers...then you would get to know how much does it spike(Just use minimal grains with options b/w sprouted moong and chana and if possible raw )...In the journey of conquering D this should be important experiment ...

If you can make your vinegar and chyvanprash ...you can do this also :)...BTW how is vinegar project going on...very eager to know :)

In your condition it is advisable to go for insulin shots under medical advise. Bring down your fasting blood sugar to below 120 . It should be lower than 150 couple of hours after breakfast. Likewise your HbA1c should be lower than 6.5 . Again it all depends on your age and the period you were noticed with diabetes.

My comment is based on my fight with this problem for the last 30 years For the last 3 years I make use of Long wheat for lunch and dinner.

I started preparing porridge with a spoonful of Fenugreek & half a cup of Long wheat and half of it for lunch and the remaining half for dinner. I used to make use of Quinvoa instead of LW, when I used to stay away in States. I believe that it is a better substitute than other grains like Rice or normal Wheat since the Glycemic index is lower. I totally avoid Rice since the GI is higher.

Thanks for your reply!

Only egg whites? Who advised you? If u following him blindly why u HV problem dear? 3 eggs with yolk are also no problem. All micro nutrients are in yolk. You want to live healthy.

People think LW is a medicine and stuff themselves with it twice a day. I tried LW long enough. I phulka morning or a small bowl gruel and one at six with plenty ghee is OK. Rest veggies mainly greens and a katori curds. Some dal. Rajma, chana, sprouts OK

You feasting on LW

sraj73 , You are not following the specs; that is why you don't get improvement.

Long wheat will not give the same results for everyone. Try by replacing LW with sprouts raw/cooked or totally replace LW with vegetable preparations.

NOTHING ON EARTH WILL GIVE SAME RESULT FOR EVERYONE! Hence targetting/pinpointing Long Wheat appears to be unfair and misguiding less informed readers.

Even age old Pencelene is not an exception.

That's why I suggested him to TRY sprouts, vegetables etc.

There is nothing in my reply which is misguiding.
