Has anyone done the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet (800 calories/day, low carb Mediterranean-style diet), or something similar? How did it work for you? Any downsides, aside from potential hunger?
My weight has usually been within healthy range, but I eat like absolute garbage. I’ve mostly been ok because I’m pretty active, have a decent metabolism, and tend to forget to actually eat food for a day once or twice a week. However, recently moving in my with partner has somehow magically packed 20 lbs onto me. He eats a ton (he’s insanely active), feeds me (crap) when I forget to eat, and while he’s in great shape, I’m getting squishy. I went to the doctor, and apparently I’m also bordering on pre-diabetic. I’m otherwise healthy, and the doc said go for it provided I find a more sustainable diet plan for maintenance. My Fitness Pal is giving me a daily minimum of 1358, is the drastic calorie reduction something that is going to have unintended side effects?
