Hi, everyone ...
Last year I tried going LC and ended up reverting to moderate carb — ironically, after having quite a bit of difficulty controlling my blood sugars (despite some early success). In the meantime, I've read more about the non-blood-sugar-related benefits of a ketogenic diet, and I'm giving LC another go. So far, the best thing has been a sharp reduction in chronic hunger (one of the benefits I was hoping for), but I'm again having problems with persistent highs. I'm aware that I need to account for protein in my boluses (I've been keeping my protein consumption pretty moderate), but it seems that my basal rates are no longer sufficient.
I'm about 10 days into this (keeping carbs =/< 30g/day). Has anyone else experienced these kinds of difficulties? If so, was there improvement over time?
P.S. On a side note, does the new edition of Bernstein's book (2011) ever explicitly address ketosis? As I recall, the 2007 edition never mentions the word, which strikes me as odd, given the persistent confusion between nutritional ketosis and diabetic ketoacidosis.
