    Great result and I know they don't at the time but the weeks fly by when you look back on therm :D Glad that everything is settling down and you are eating a wider range of food.

    Hi Peerless
    Congratulations on achieving 8 weeks and on your recent long range results.
    Your report is always useful to me, being one week behind you on the ND.
    Your achievements have been fantastic and deserved -Well done you

    I am on my last day on the ND today
    I have my long range blood test 5/10
    I will post my final ND results tomorrow morning.

    I don't want to lose any more weight so unsure what I need to do on the low carb diet now.
    What sort you of carb level I should be aiming at?

    I will continue researching

    @thepolly @marathonmona @Chook @Muzzer Thank you all for the kind words.

    @Muzzer for right now I am keeping my calories down without counting and avoiding to many carbs but without being anal about it. I am not sure what kind of levels you should aim for carb wise but there is some kind of low carb program on this site.
    Personally I shall just continue with regular testing and if I see a climb in my BG levels I know I have over done the carbs, I think they call it eating to your meter.
    I am like you I do not want to lose any more weight but I will be happy to trade fat for muscle, I am kinda liking my new waistline.
    And you have done a great job too, unless you have done 8 weeks of NCD/800 cal, its hard to appreciate just what an achievement it is. And remember you have achieved this without medication, I have managed to avoid 549 tablets to date and I know you must have done a similar amount.
    Congratulations and enjoy that steak.

    A full week since the end of the 8 weeks, I am still only having coffee in the morning as I have done all my adult life. I have been having the soup at lunchtime I sometimes have cheese and chili's with it. Evening meals have mainly consisted of chicken in different guises. But I have had curries with cauliflower rice and burritos without rice in them. And sometimes I just have another soup.
    I have not been able to get over to Lidls to try their protein bread but I have had some rye vita rye crackers as a substitute for bread. Its gonna take some getting used to.
    Still do not have a long term plan in place but I seem to be managing ok at the moment.

    My weight is at 72.5 KG and I remain sub 7 for my BG tests.

    Remember that your 59 result tells you about what your BG has been like over about the last 13 weeks, therefore does not reflex all the progress you have made.

    Been a week since finishing ND
    Like Peerless, I am learning about new diets (lchf, low carb, keys etc)
    Have registered on low carb program here so I can learn more.
    Last Sunday, went silly, hitting the low GI bread (had 3 loaves in 2 days)
    Plus tried Lidls protein rolls and loved 'em!
    My weight gone up 5lns, which I sort of expected.
    My BG gone up average between 8 and 9.... so need to look at what I am doing.
    Still no meds though

    Started running program to get myself up to 5k

    Get results for long range bloods next Fri 13/10/17

    " low GI bread" is still very high carb and would have done you no good.

    All of us with issues with insulin reistance (and hence Type2 past, present, or high risk off) gain fat very quickly when we eat lots of carbs. Don't undo your good work, whenever to consider eating lots of bread consider if is worth having to do the ND for another 8 week to undo the damage.....

    Keep testing BG after meals to monitor effect of various foods, @Muzzer and @Peerless67 . It is called eating to your meter.

    Really good going, @peerless, has your appetite changed as well after doing the ND?

    Hi thepolly I would not say my appetite has changed as such but I do not feel like I have the same calorie requirement I had before. I am still having black coffee for breakfast and soup for dinner, since its only 153 calories I can have a decent sized evening meal. I have been having cheese and chili's as a snack when I feel like it. I am however keeping my carbs down, I am not being anal about it though just cautious. Sorry for the delays with updates my wife just got out the hospital today.
    I will bring the thread up to date in the next couple of days.
