I’m Prediabetic and finally have the motivation to do this. I am 50 in 6 weeks with a big party ahead and not been able to focus until now, nothing like a goal eh! I know this is a new way of life for me and ongoing, I will switch to 5:2 when lost my weight. I am 3.5 stone overweight since a divorce, PMS and being a sugar and overeating emotional eater. I also have self sabotaged for a few years and binge drink as my social life is hectic mostly.
I have followed the 800 with fasting windows ranging between 16:8, 12:12, 18:6 over the past week.. Each duration varies due to my working day. I am finding it easy in the morning but having dizzyness, headaches and pulsating, brain zaps too. I have also recently come off my Anti Depressants, I am also having hyper episodes and clumsiness, erraticness, overwhelm. Is this normal?
I took my blood sugar yesterday, fasted at 11.30am and it was 4.9mmol, then 2 hours after my soup it was 5.6mmol. This morning was the first morning fasted bloods I took and they were 2.9mmol. I am trying to wait until 12pm to have my first meal but thinking I should raise my sugar level? I want to achieve the quickest weight loss in this 6 weeks and get my prediabetes reversed. I think I’m too low this morning as my vision is blurred also so may go have a full fat yoghurt, will this break my fast completely? I have had an espresso coffee with xylitol and acv water with lemon.
I also haven’t lost anything yet but have just changed my scales so could be just different scales issue.
Thanks, sorry for war and peace!
