I tried low carb to help pass an insurance physical. I was worried because my fasting blood sugar was 112 and I was easily 25 pounds overweight. After a few months I lost 25 pounds and fasting blood sugar went down to 82. A1c was 5.6. I did have two problems, both my fault. The lack of fiber gave me a hellish case of constipation, so I started eating ground flaxseed for breakfast every day. |
The second problem came after I passed the physical and got a " healthy discount" I went nuts and ate a lot of pizza. Gained 5 pounds seemingly overnight.
Avoid my mistakes :-)
