My life started to change when I went to see an Endocrinologist in 2014. My first visit he took me off of Insulin and then tells me I should have been off 2 years earlier. He told me to do low carb and I told him that at times I did not feel hungry so he said then do not eat. I said that goes against the ADA diet. He said he is from Europe and they do things differently. So the weight started coming off. Three years ago I heard about Dr Jason Fung and fasting. I talked to my Endo and he said he was fine with that. So I started fasting two to three times a week 16/8 and sometimes 20/4 Two years ago I was off all meds including metformin. But last year was under stress and went back on it. My weight stalled so last visit with Endo he suggested I do KETO. I did not start it till 5 weeks ago and started losing weight so I have lost a total o 82 pounds and 22 to go for what the endo wants. Note: I never thought I would be back into size 12 clothes 8 years ago. Since 2010 those family members have all passed on. I have a great husband who learned to cook low carb meals. We have been married 45 years and he did not know how to cook till I became a diabetic 8 years ago. So for me LCHF fasting and KETO is what I have to do to stay of meds. Make a lot our meals with the instant pot. my blood sugars are running 71-93 and two hours after eating 105-115. I feel great. so that is my story with diabetes.
