Hi !I am a diabetic since last 11 yrs. I started on LCHF diet in December 2016, when I came across many motivating posts,here,in this forum,initially my BS numbers dropped a little,(e.g. FBS came down to 135 from 142 ,and PP came to 176 from 229 ,but lately the nos. are again creeping up (today FBS 182 and PP 229) despite every effort to keep my diet absolutely low carb.I take Metformin SR 850 mg twice after breakfast and dinner.I am giving here an idea of food I'm having.
Breakfast : one fried egg and a glass of lemon water, without salt (or sugar)& VCO 2tsp.
mid morning,one fruit ( a guava or half orange or 3-4 strawberries or a palmful of soaked peanuts
Lunch: One small roti (made of 2 tbsp.coconut flour+ 1 tbsp. multigrain wheat flour+1 tsp .psyllium husk) ,1 small bowl of lentil soup and some vegetable (no potatoes ) +cucumber/tomato salad
ditto for dinner( only one gravy vegetable in place of soup )
If having a meal outside , I stick to curd ,daal ,salad and sometimes a
wheat roti .
evening ,a cup of tea (with milk and 2 sucralose tabs.)and a palmful of
dry roasted peanuts+chana
before bedtime 2tsp. VCO
Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong with regard to LCHF diet ? as I don't want to give it up
