The day before the 800 calorie diet
Monday, June 27, 2016
I said I was going to report back in 2 weeks. However, I have planned my meals for the next week and think I am going to need all the support I can get, even if it is just me talking to myself.
I have neatly typed my menu planner with calories and recipe page and I know I am going to be hungry but this is for a good cause, to get my blood glucose down to the more normal level. Before I went to see the beep beep nutritionist (she makes me so cross) I had readings for between 85 and 125 but occasionally I would drop to around 60 or 65 and on one occasion had a black out which frightened me. She put me on a low protein / high carb diet. Told me I had to have carbs with every meal i.e. toast or cereal for breakfast, bread with my lunch and pasta or rice with my evening meal. This was way too much for me but I had to trust her - sorry I ever did. She even told me to eat 2oz of cheese at the end of my lunch and dinner. Don't forget I live in France and they live on baguettes and love their cheese. For me cheese is a big no no but she said I was wrong and cheese did nothing to increase my blood glucose.
Anyway, before I go on anymore about what has happened I now need to look forward and heal myself.
Today I have stocked up on every veg known to man or woman and I am ready to start tomorrow morning. In the meantime I am going to allow myself a couple of glasses of wine tonight and I have just eaten a mini pack of malteers (do you get those in America??) but I am normally so good they had a use by date of March 2015 so were a bit soggy.
Will check in again tomorrow with my b/g and weight and let you know how I am getting on.
