Day 1 was a “cake walk” – no pun intended. To be sure, things feel a little different. But so far this is a welcome change. When I woke up today I went straight to the scale. Lost 5lbs! OK, I’m just saying its water weight for now – I don’t want to get too excited!
Following the regular morning routine, it was medicine time (diabetes is awesome). When I checked my blood sugar though, for the first time since I’ve been diabetic my morning blood sugar was normal! 80 mg/dl. To put things in perspective, when I found out I was diabetic, my fasting glucose was 609mg/dl. Since, being medicated I have had what “they” refer to as “high morning sugar”. Normally 145mg/dl.
I promptly called the doctor and said I was cutting my insulin in half (formerly 100 units twice a day which is a lot). She said keep a close eye on it.
So what does this miracle diet look like?
Well take a gander! I have to say, I was worried at first. But I wasn’t hungry once all day! The night was tough. I’m a night owl and part of the reason I am so overweight is because I stay up late and always end up making a “snack” which might include anything from a couple frozen dinners to a pound of pasta with butter and salt. (Yes I eat the WHOLE pound!)
Instead I went for a second crack at the herbal tea and found that to be quite satisfying.
