    Likewise, the first gin and slim was my undoing. Fizz, a roast potato, stuffing, pastry on vegetarian Xmas pie, 3 chocolates - not even very nice ones - mince pie, crackers under cheese! First Xmas in 8 years where I have really indulged. However, no carbs today so far. Clawing it back rapidly!
    Merry Christmas!

    My bf today was 2 cheese muffins (2.9 each) with bacon and slice of cheese. Lunch will be homemade soup made with chicken carcase and lots of veg and 1 stock cube and tea will be 2 Ryvitas with smashed avocado. I have an A1c of 60 and am trying very hard to get it down.

    Hey everyone, I am really struggling, I am diabetic but the doctors want me to try to reverse with diet control. I am finding it super hard as I’m not much of a meat eater, I don’t like fish.. most of my life I have lived on carbs, bread pasta and potato. I don’t know what to do but I can tell when my sugars are too high as I feel tired headachey and foggy head. Today I had plain weetabix, tea, sandwich at Costa with a coffee - I am super wiped out feel really ill my sugars are still at 12 5hours after my food. What can I do feeling really low about this.

    Diagnosed a few weeks ago and trying to lose weight before getting bloods done again. Today, breakfast was brown roll with grilled bacon and a fried egg, small fresh orange and mug of tea (one sugar which is half what it used to be. Lunch was a flask of my homemade carrot and lentil soup. Tea tonight was 2 potato rosti and 2 poached eggs with some wafer thin ham. Probably gonna have a glass of white this evening. Still getting to grips with this diet-y thing!

    I am new here I just want to tell you how I got off my metformin after 4 months of low carb diet. Before I got diagnosis I felt exactly like you described. So I rid off all sugar, processed foods, starch,carbs, and I eat only what I cook from scratch eggs, meat, fish, chicken, cheese, butter, ghee, a bit of green olives, avocados, mushrooms, green leafy vegetables like kale, broccoli, arugula, cucumbers, no vegetable oils, no any wheat products. It’s been over two years now and my doctor can’t believe I did it just with diet. I do exercise gently:walking and cycling., now thinking to join gym and start weight lifting it helps too. I feel completely different now, not exhausted and I don’t have mental fog, forgetfulness like I used to have. It’s just my example I am not a doctor. But all my blood markers improved within a year. I am not on any medication, I control my blood glucose with diet low carb. Health and happiness to everyone

    Bacon and eggs for three meals. Beef jerky for snacks. I could do it everyday.
