Hi Everyone, I am new and just starting out on my journey. I am spoke to my Dr this week as I had some blood samples taken as I thought there was something wrong (being thirsty, drinking lots, tired, going to the loo lots, weight loss) and he indicated my blood sugar level is 11.1 and my cholesterol is a bit high. He wanted to put me on meds but I had read up on the Blood sugar diet and he has given me till July to turn things through diet and exercise – sounds simple but is a challenge! I also so testing positive for Covid and in day 7 so can’t make the start I wanted .
As a family we do eat healthy but I know I was eating the same portions or higher than my sons who are all in very physical jobs and I could still find time for pudding, equally working from home has got me into the habit of grazing and eating between meals and having sugary tea. So I know what to cut back on and need to get more exercise. I have already stopped all sugar and am cutting back portion on sizes with nothing between meals. Trying not to get fixated on my blood sugar level.
