I am on day 5 of week 2 and very new to this, so sorry for all the questions.
I lost 6lb in my first 8 days which I am delighted with and my fasting blood sugar dropped quite a bit in a week, which is great! I was told a year ago that my blood sugar was high level of normal, but after 9 months and not doing anything about it, I got a little worried and thought i would get a home testing kit. The level showed up as 7.1 mmol/l after fasting. I believe this to be in the diabetic range. After one week, I was down to 6.3. I believe this to be pre-diabetic??? Great result and found the diet so easy. This week, I have given in to a couple of low carb and low sugar oatcakes, but have always kept my sugars under 10g and carbs in 40g. Is this allowed or is it strictly no naughty cabs? I have struggled to drop lbs so far this week and wondered if this was why.
I have also had a few very low calorie days. Is this a bad thing? According to MFP I have burnt more than I took in. I have read that you should still go with 800 cals, no matter what you do exercise wise. Is this correct?
Any advice would help greatly. I have booked an appointment with the doctors in 3 weeks, so hope to have made a big difference in my health. I love all the food you can have in the diet and don’t feel hungry, but do crave an oatcake or two at times.
Thank you in advance
