My 60th Birthday treat !! ...I just came back from a juicing retreat in Portugal...decided "what have I got to lose it was only 7 days of JUICING!!! " It was amazing , I am using an insulin Omnipod pump and also freestyle libre so between the two I was able to micro manage my blood sugar. I reduced my insulin requirements by more than 50% and was bouncing with energy. The juices are made with a cold press juicer so the goodness is retained and I asked the staff to reduce all the recipes to limit the fruit sugars and stuck mostly to green juices. In the evening soup was served as it was a winter menu, I calculated approx how many carbs in a juice for my insulin and was blown away that I wasn't hungry and I could have such tight control of my sugar levels.
I have been brittle diabetic for 27yrs and its the fist time I have had such perfect control !!!
THE GREAT THING ABOUT A RETREAT IS IT GIVES QUALITY TIME TO YOURSELF...I enjoyed the Yoga classes and jumping on a Mini Trampoline(rebounding) and walking every morning. I am now more aware about the foods we eat and I'm changing my diet to Plant based as it now shows how a low Carb diet helps Type 1 as well as reversing Type 2 diabetics.
I will blog about my adventure on
I started a blog on Wordpress last year with good intention to continue... but ran into a new diabetic complication , hence haven't been on line for a while to continue. My blog was to discuss when I first became diabetic 24 yrs ago and how my life changed, highlighting all the challenges I have had to face..always looking for alternative ways to help myself ..hence the name .
If you want to follow me on www.alternativediabetic.wordpress.com ...I plan to start up soon and will also add to this blog too.
