Hi everyone. It's been an age since I posted on HU (used to post on C25K) but here goes.
I was a graduate of C25K in March. The improvement in my well being was tremendous and the effect the running had on my T2D excellent. Not only had my blood sugars become level and better controlled, for the first time in my life I sometimes felt full after eating. Occasionally I simply did not want to eat. Amazing or what? I LOVED it!
Then I had to stop running due to a partially ruptured tendon. I now have to wear a support boot to protect my ankle. No running, weight increasing etc. Last month I started the 5:2 eating WOL to control weight. (I'm not very good at it yet.)
Have problems with back ache and blood tests showed higher uric acid levels. GP advises eating a low Purine diet.
Problem is that so many of the foods I had thought were good for me on low GL diet now are not. Meat, fish, B vitamins, greens. I have downloaded a list of foods to avoid and looking at it I realise that a lot of what I've been doing recently has probably been aggravating my joints.
Does anyone else have experience of a healthy diet without these important food groups? (I was doing low GL after reading Patrick Holford's 'Say NO to Diabetes') I know it is not possible to reverse the diabetes but I do want to improve it.
