Hi guys, first post, be gentle
I was first diagnosed type 1 4 weeks ago. Despite a strict diet i have put my weight back on i lost (to be expected) but with 2 kilos ‘interest’. I am on 10units lantus and bolus with novarapid 3 times a day to cover about 160 grams of carbs total a day (still honeymooning obviously as sometimes i dont even need a whole 3 units spread out over the day to cover the carbs). My endo said a small weight gain is normal and it platues off. Now all my clothes fit etc the same, but im wondering if it is bodyfat, is it possible to even shift this weight? I eat exactly the same cals, same workouts etc yet the extra couple of kilos dont budge at all. Its like my body has a new ‘baseline’ race weight or something? (im a triathlete) …As mentioned, i like routine and eat the exact same everyday, and have a program i follow to training. Now i dont really feel fat or anything, i feel ‘fuller’ in the muscles etc, but yeh…weight is on somewhere?!
Sorry it may sound a little trivial, but extra weight in my sport is sometimes a bad thing.
Thanks for listening
