Hi everyone, i’m new here – my name is Sun, i’m a mom of 1, and i was doing a health diet (seemingly losing weight) but my HBA1C is still high, probably from eating protein bars as snacks. So taking some action, I read BSD once and still re-reading it. I’m on day 2. On day 0 i started well but at night i ended up eating my toddler’s mini pizzas. I’m feeling good on day 2, my breakfast today was 3 tbs full fat yoghurt with 2 tbs of seeds, lunch was 100g tofu (grilled) with lettuce, and dinner will be a protein patty with lettuce. I do feel very hungry after dinner (yesterday i took some nuts before bedtime).
I wanted to ask for ideas around the proteins – and can i have just vegetables in a meal? E.g just steamed okras or brocolli?
I have tofu/lentils/protein sausages for options but from experience on gestational diabetes i know my BS would go up from lentils or chickpeas.
I just got the BSD recipe book which i’m browsing for options, so far most options are using lentils.
One more question, when you are starting, how often do you check your fasting sugars?
Thank you and i’m planning to check old posts to learn more and take notes.
