So I want to know what is the best route to get results:
Eating a healthy balanced low carb diet approx. 60ish carbs a day (including a little fruit and starchy veggies like carrots) or an extremely low car diet about 20-30ish carbs a day (only proteins, fats and non starchy veggies)?
I ask because I need to drop 10-15 lbs for professional reasons. I am not overweight, but the industry I'm in requires thin, not normal. Please hold comments about that, I'm simply looking for the most effective route to long term get the results I'm looking for.
Either option I will keep calories around 1200 and I jog for about 30 mins 5 days a week.
When I see pictures of model Bambi Northwood-Blythe (also a Type 1 Diabetic) with a very slim physique (even slimmer than I want to achieve), I know it must be possible to get this slim model body type while still taking insulin.
My Dr. is not helping with this, and thinks it's not important. Well, it is to me and my profession. She says it's not about less insulin, it's about the right amount of insulin. The agency I work with hasn't provided me with nutritional advice specific to diabetics.
Please pass along tips and tricks. I've slowly put on an extra 10-15 and it is seeming impossible for me to drop it. I'm not looking for a fad diet, more of a way of life. Healthy options only...I do not have an ED and would never harm myself to be thin. I just want to know if my former weight can be achieved again or if I have to accept that my former body is not coming back.
