I’ve been eating a low fat high carbohydrate diet, with no restrictions at all on sugar. I’m on day 6 of this and so far I’ve lost 2 pounds and my blood sugars, which were trending up recently on moderate fat/moderate carb, have again dropped to pre-diabetic levels. I feel better eating this way. When I’ve attempted high-carb/low fat in the past I was using only sugar as the carbohydrate, in either fruit, juice, or granulated form. This was unpalatable and unsustainable for me. This time around I’m also eating a lot of white rice which is more satiating for me than sugar, and I’m finding it very easy to stick to.
Here’s my Cronometer from yesterday:
I need to add some more greens to round out the nutrients, but this is basically what I’ve been doing for the past week. Also making lots of oxtail broth. I guess I may have stepped back into Ray Peat land.
My family is breaking up. I’m really sad about it, but I know I’ve done the best I could do. My poor health played a role, but my husband’s lack of commitment played a bigger one. I guess this is just life. Anyone have a good resource for keeping kids sane when their parents break up?
