I started my LCHF diet regiment for the last two weeks, but ran into a snag with my test strips and hence the readings did not match how I felt. Once I replace the strips and did a control test, I started recording my results daily.
FBS 129 (used to be this low only with 2000 mg of metformin)
50 minute walk, yoga 15 minutes
BF - Tbsp barley flakes, 1 tbsp almond flour, 1 tsp of flaxseed, 1 tbsp full fat cottage cheese and 1/2 cup of almond milk, few slices of mango and papaya. PPBS (3 hours) 140
Lunch - Sprouted moong/urad dosa and Sambhar generous use of sesame oil and hung curd.
Methi water and Lime water.

PPBS - 171 (2 hours). Hmm... I feel great and expected the sugars to be below 140.
Friends, supporters and experts - is it too early for BS to stabilize? One thing to note, I stopped taking metformin entirely for the last two days. what can I remove or add to my diet to see more improvements ? Should I restrict to only one type of fat ?
I would really appreciate your feedback. I do feel great to have joined this forum that offers various perspectives and it motivates me to read many success stories. I am on a mission to reduce or entirely quit my medication.
