Happy, I am no expert, but here are my thoughts.
I started DANDR and for the first time in my life, REALLY, I lost weight and I was not hungry.
Then dealt with my first of two planned pregnancies. Gestational diabetes and inslin became my life.
DANDR got me thru-- eating freely of the allowed induction foods. And a few cravings of ben & Jerry's ice cream, diet coke from McDonalds, and a big bag of Doritos.
This was all some 15-16 years ago, and since I have dieted and yo-yo'd.
When I am starting back on the path of low carb, I depend on the high fat weeks that get me to the point of ketosis, where the amount of food I consume decreases, for the most part. Including the amount of fat.
We know sugar and high carbs are worse than fats. Pick your poison. lol Sort of.
Pick a diet and stick with it. WHich one did you like best? WHich one made you feel great? Then tweek it.
I do not have diabetes. I do have a heads up due to the gestational diabetes. I do know I am on the road to diabetes. HOWEVER, it is not something a doc tells me. I know the road looms ahead to full blown diabetes, and LC slows or stalls the progress.
Not perfect, but somethinng I was working on while the docs I deal with have their blinders on.
That this doc was diagnosed was not frightful to me---- because many of us will test for it, but liveing LC controls it.
Not a perfect system. But better than eating SAD and landing in the hospital every other month like a friend who eats SAD endlessly, doesnt control the diabetes, and continues to sucum to secondary issues caused by severe obesity. He cant see a way to change his choices.
You can, and you do.
