What is your ideal diet for blood sugar? How much do you restrict carbs? Do you limit fat? I have been following a semi-Atkins-type diet and haven’t been restricting my fat. I no longer like this. I find that if I have fat before exercise, the exercise is not very effective at bringing down my blood sugar. There’s a theory that if the fat is being imported into muscle cells, the muscle cells don’t use glucose for energy so the glucose stays high. Sometimes too I think that I actually have better glucose control if I have a few carbs.
What works best for you?
