    Default experimented with diet this week..

    I have low carb/spiked since dx and have boosted exercise and reduced meds.

    So I figured I would give a diet change a try...lower calorie so that wouldn’t
    be a factor and kept up my exercise intensity..only change was what I ate.

    the sort of changes I tried was one slice of whole grain bread..7 carb with
    butter and eggs for breakfast....

    a fourth of a banana in my protein shakes and rice cake or a cup popcorn for
    a snack.

    all "healthy diet" choices.

    I just wanted to see if food choices that weren't over the top in carbs or
    calories would be doable for me at all

    well it was a total flop..my bg slowly crept up and up and at max was 165 at
    which point I stopped.

    the thing is unlike other times I've strayed like the work xmas party where
    I treated myself to a roll etc with dinner...I FEEL those rises and falls
    keenly..this was a creeping rise I had zero feel of and only knew through
    testing which I found interesting.


    so for ME..it just isn't possible to eat those foods sadly..I'm glad for
    others who can but I cant and I gave it a fair try..trust me I wanted it to
    work..but when a 35 calorie plain rice cake with 7 carb spikes you to
    165..it’s a sign...lol

    ahh well was just a week and I am back to the way of eating I know keeps me
    off the meds and in a good range..and in a range I can feel if something's
    amiss..

    Breakfast might always be a problem for carbs. Are you having the
    extra carb well away from meals? As in mid afternoon? If its not a
    sensitive question, are you overweight? And if you are is the extra
    weight muscle or some fat?

    well its been years of one way and other here have been successful in
    returning to a semi normal diet after years of control.

    I guess my system was too far gone...

    I wasn’t crazy..an example would be I eat a plain chicken breast and
    broccoli for dinner most every night...I added a tiny skin on potato that I
    ate with greek yogurt that I strained thru cheese cloth to make it even
    thicker with fresh chives.

    so while I can now randomly do that every so often and not have it effect
    me..doing this as a regular meal plan I cannot.
    it doesn’t effect me day one or two but day 3 I'm permanently risen in bg

    ahh well was a learning thing

    I'm a amateur body builder who works out two hours a day when I first got
    sick I put on 50 pounds but lost that the first year of control.

    that’s why I felt good about trying it out..especially since if say eat a
    fourth of a banana in my protein shake once a month doesn’t effect me so I
    got cocky..lol

    its no biggie I eat such a variety of foods..not eat a slice of bread or
    tiny potato with dinner isn't a big deal.

    This sounds pretty familiar -- once or twice a week, maybe, with no
    problem. But more than two or three days in a row, and the BG creep
    kicks in. It's frustrating.

    I don't know what meds you're on, but have you thought about adjusting
    them? Or are have you decided you definitely don't want to go that
    way?

    yes it was definitely a creep up on me thing.

    no I have been getting off the meds so don’t wish to go back.

    I can maintain excellent control with diet and exercise so that’s the way
    I'm going to go..

    like I said it was just a experiment to see if I could add those things back
    in to my normal diet which is fine for me.

    a slice of bread or bit of banana was nice but not a big deal..I wont miss
    them much..especially since they harm me...and I know I can have them every
    so often..just not regularly..like you say one day fine..two pushing
    it..three harm.
