I was diagnosed in November last year and have been on a low carb diet since. I was 14 st 2 lb BMI 28.9 at diagnosis. Aged 63 I have stuck to my diet and upped my exercise (Half hour walk, half hour on an exercise bike every day, weights twice weekly and refereeing two rugby games a week). Still aged 63, but that won't last forever. Today I am 12 stone 9 lb BMI 25.4. I put on muscle mass at the start and now I'm just maintaining it. I'm delighted with my progress and my BG is falling. I have a HBa1C test next Tuesday. I eat very little carbs. The only carbs I get are the low numbers in some veg, seeds, nuts etc. I estimate no more than 25g a day and probably less. I never eat bread, pasta, rice or anything sugary. I stopped drinking alcohol after diagnosis. I'm really pleased with my progress and it is all down to the advice I've had from this group. The only problem is that my weight stopped falling two weeks ago and it actually went up a couple of pounds this week. I have not eaten extra fat on this diet. I took the view that you have to replace the nutritian you get from carbs with fat in the long term, but in order to lose weight I needed to moderate my fat intake. I eat a small amount of cheese some days, I don't cut fat off meat and I eat avocados and olive oil regularly. I never feel hungry despite eating relatively little. So, my question is, should I cut back on fat still further or should I increase my fat consumption? Or is there something else I should be doing? I know weight loss starts well and then tails off, but I really need to get to a healthy BMI and I have to lose at least another 5-6 pounds to get there.
