Was found to be pre-diabetic with a HbA1C reading of 44 (although 2 weeks previously it was 41).
I’m 60, 175cm, 85kg. Portion control dreadful, drink too much, ate too many rice or pasta meals.
6 days in I’ve lost 2.5kg. It took 4 days before I saw any change on the scales but now we’re on the journey!
Would love to get to 75kg and I can see it happening.
The first few days have been interesting. The meals have been lovely. Some from the 8 Day BSD book, others adapted things Mrs and I already ate.
I’ve only rarely felt hungry which surprises me.
The last couple of days I’ve felt a bit lethargic and light headed but I’ve been drinking water and forcing myself to continue working in our very large garden.
I’ve been pulled onto the NHS Diabetes Prevention Program. I have to say that the info given on that program is close to useless.
Will post back after another few days.
