@Bobtskis - What's the "Fasting" part of your challenge? I'm surprised your diet is so high in carbs, for a diabetic.

 

I have been on something like the Whole30 diet for about a year. There's no need to "fast" or skip meals. I cut out all carbs but those in veggies & fruit, as well as dairy, soy & all forms of sweetener. Now I split a packet of stevia over a full day's worth of herbal tea; sometimes 2 days. My breakfasts are veggies, protein & green tea.

Y'all going to think I'm nuts since I am a Type II Diabetic, but on my non-Fast days I usually have 2 eggs scrambled, 2 slices Turkey bacon, Simply Potatoes cubed variety hash browns from my Air Fryer, a small bowl of mixed fruit and sour dough toast with Hot Tea sweetened with Pyure Stevia. On my Fasting Days I have 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats, 1/2 English Muffin and a cup of hot tea sweetened with the Stevia.  I average around 5 miles per day walking and have lost 35 pounds in the last 18 months.  My A1C has gone from 7.4 to 6.1 without meds and may be lower when I get my next test in June.  I am writing this post not to brag, but to encourage Folks to take on the Fasting challenge.  My wife had recorded a segment from Dr. Oz and showed it to me right after my diagnosis.  It has helped me tremendously.   I'm 5'10" and started out at 239lbs and am around 204 now.

@doglover52...Sue, I'm so glad you put on the long pants! Cat Happy

Before I read your post I was thinking of having oatmeal! Cream of Wheat is a good choice!

 

So glad the heater guy comes today!

40 and sunny here. I'm enjoying my coffee INSIDE with a sweat jacket over my PJ's! N.

@Prosecco6247    Your list of "culprits" accounts for much of the weight-gain problem I'm fighting at present (except for super-size portions - I don't do those.) Good post & thanks for making it!    Pam   

 

 

Thanks for saying so and you're welcome!
