Your fasting blood sugar when you get up in the morning is almost always higher than later in the day. What great advice you’ve been receiving here!! Exercise and weight loss will make such a difference in your life!! And your blood cholesterol will also drop. I went off almost all the carbs: bread, rice, potatoes, pasta, bagels, etc. etc. etc.
But I have my weekly ice cream cone!! Like Cajun, it’s the carbs that will kill you. I’m on high fat and protein, very few carbs. I have two friends with diabetes. They both have had the same experience as I have had. Their cardiologsts, one at Yale, New Haven, said, “A few years ago I would not have believed that this diet would work. Now I say, keep doing whatever you’re doing!!” They’re changing their song about the low-carb diet.
And man, do you lose weight fast on it!!
Good luck, pal. We’re all here to support you in this.
