It seems like these are all compatible with Bernstein’s diet principles, although a bit more restrictive.
I decided giving up all carbs (well, mostly, I am around 6-9 a day) because my b/s was all over the place even following the 6 - 12 - 12. I thought maybe I could get rid of carbs, figure out my insulin dosing for my protein/fat diet and then add in veggies again. But today is my third day of this and I’m feeling so great that I’m starting to wonder if it’s not a viable lifestyle. I could see doing this but adding in one or two salads a week, mostly for social reasons.
My b/s is still crazy but I’m reserving judgment on that till at leas tomorrow night. I screwed up my lantus two days in a row (so frustrating!!!), so I’m going lantus free for the day and I’ll do my lantus before bed, as it seems like the only time I can reliably remember it.
