I have not seen many discussions on this, so please add your thoughts
I have been off medications for three years (out of six) last A1c 6.0
After years of testing I pretty much know what foods do to my BS. I eat three meals and two snacks each day. I try to be as consistent as I can with the amounts of carbs and protein, same amount at the same time each day. I typically consume 120 to 160 carbs a day, weighted more to the morning with dinner having the least carbs. No food after dinner.
No car so I walk a couple miles each day, up and down the hills of San Francisco. I run a couple of miles 2 to 3 times a week and work with a trainer once a week. Never been one for extreme exercise, but like to keep moving, One of the reasons I retired is to be able to have this life style.
My initial a1c was 12.0 as I said now 6.0. So it took some work.
Fasting bs range from 80 to 115.
I am far from perfect, I have had a couple 200 plus, when I eat way more food than I should. Buffets at a gathering are my nemesis. I guess I cant talk and count carbs at the same. )
At least this what works for me, responses please from other diet and exercise only. Thanks.
