I started the BSD two weeks ago I am a man 5′ 11″ and weighed 13st 3lbs my HBAC1 test score was 44 placing me in the pre-diabetic range. In the two weeks I have been on the diet i have lost 11 lbs which i am very pleased with and my fasting blood sugars in the morning have been 5.5 mmol/L or below for the past five days. My question is how long should I continue on the BSD. My goal weight is 12 st and as I am now 12st 5lbs at the rate i am going it wont be long before I have achieved this (hopefully!)
Do i go over to the 5:2 diet as maintenance, or should I continue on the BSD until my next HBAC1 test to confirm my readings? I don’t really want to go below 12St as i will be under weight on the NHS BMI calculator.
Your thoughts please.
