I have to say that some here have really jumped to negative conclusions! I guess I should have started reading posts in other forums first
Anyway, to the point:
In June of 1996 I was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. I was put on a low carb diet and lost a lot of weight. At first my blood counts all improved, of course, because of all the weight loss; this is typical. However, now 6 years later, I have high cholesterol, high triglycerides, high LDL and low HDL. Now, as you can see, this is not good. Now my dr., who is fine with low carb, advises me to eat much lower fat. Obviously the low carb worked in the short term, but long term has not. I am to continue with low carb, but incorporate low fat. It is a challenge but one I'm willing to work on.
I'm more selective in my protein sources, opting for protein shake instead of eggs or meats for breakfast. Lunches are tuna (without mayo) and vegetables or soup made with lean beef and lots of vegetables. Dinner is similar.
I don't like sugar so I avoid it. I don't like many breads or carby foods so those aren't a problem either.
I'm sure I'll be slammed for this and if I must show my blood profiles I will, but I hope most people are mature enough not to have a "prove it" attitude
I still low carb, I know it has helped my blood sugar tremendously, that's the only thing that was good on my blood profile
Oh, and I have my fasting blood sugar done at 8:00 am and get the results by 5:00 pm. It's been this way for years.
