OMG. I am reading Dr. Bernstein’s book now (see blog post yesterday LOL). I cannot fathom his diet plan. I know that it must work, and it makes sense, but wow. I am REALLY REALLY hoping I don’t have to do his diet. I get the impression that since I am mild type 2, maybe I won’t.
I have Gretchen’s book on the way and can’t wait to read it, since it is geared toward new Type 2’s.
How important is it REALLY to keep blood glucose to 85 like Dr. Bernstein recommends? What about keeping it to around 100? Not that I have been successful with that, even. Though I don’t usually go above 140 after two hours. But I’m scared that 140 is way too high and I need to be shooting much lower.
It’s just that I am not a huge fan of meat (I eat it, but I certainly don’t crave it), too much cheese plugs me up, I can only eat so many eggs without getting tired of them, and all the veggies I like are the ‘bad’ ones. It sucks that even whole-grain bread and pasta, and brown rice, are just as bad. All this time I have felt super virtuous eating them!
