I am a 56 year old T1 and started following Dr Bernstein’s regime 10 weeks ago. I’m following it strictly and eat less than 30 g of carbohydrate per day. It has been transformational in terms of blood sugar control. I am incredibly grateful to him.
I’m wondering whether anyone has experience of following Dr Bernstein’s regime as a runner. My local diabetes specialist had previously advised that I should not even think about running if my blood sugars are below 130 mg. However, my blood sugars are frequently 90 mg or less these days. I tend not to run for more than 30 minutes at the moment but have had no problems at all. I run nearly every day.
Of course, I am now running primarily on ketones rather than glucose.
Does anyone have experience of running much further on the Dr Bernstein regime, say one hour or longer? Has it been necessary to supplement with glucose? I would be most grateful to hear of any experiences. Thank you very much.
