Three years ago when I got the prediabetic diagnosis, I started a low carb diet. The weight fell off me, so much so people asked my wife if I was ok. 17kgs, it was easy. Going to the gym regularly I noticed I lost muscle as well as fat. I arrested this loss by eating peanuts which I became a little too fond of. Over the last three years the Kgs have crept up. I fear the only explanation is an increase in red wine and salty low carb snacks may be to blame. Today I bought another size up trousers. I want to lose it again. HBA1c has also crept up.
