800 calorie blood sugar diet - Day 5

Saturday, July 02, 2016

Can I be clear here, I am not recommending this diet I am just trying it and reporting on how I get on. I have seen my doctor and will be seeing him again in 6 weeks. I will monitor myself regularly. If you want to follow such a strict diet you should talk to your doctor. Also my husband is going to keep a close eye on me for any signs of hypo. If you want to know more detail please read my blog '800 calorie blood sugar diet - Day 1' where I go into a bit of detail about it.


Fasting blood glucose 140
Weight: 77.9 kg or 171.6 lbs - lost 3 lbs
Waist measurement 42 inches (was 44)
Insulin given last night 37 units - kept it the same as I decided too early to reduce
Calories yesterday: 780

Breakfast: blueberry and green tea smoothie - Calories 100

Lunch; Chicken, pepper and fennel salad Calories 200

It was a bit of a shock when I got on the scales this morning. I am so used to seeing '79' that my mind registered 79.7 and I thought I had gained it all back. When I looked again and saw it was 77.9 I danced around the bathroom. I haven't seen a 77 for nearly 2 years.

Dinner: Skinny chilli with yogurt Calories 460

10 gram square of 75% dark chocolate Calories 50

Evening blood glucose 91 - very good

Total Calories 810

    Linda, what works for you is important. I was always on a low carb diet until the stupid nutritionist told me I was wrong. Never listen to the experts when you have found you know what is best for your body.

    People have said this diet is mad, too low in calories but I have seen my blood glucose reduce from 180 / 190 to 125 in 6 days. If diet can put blood glucose up then diet must be the answer to reducing it. Hope you will continue to read my blog, take a look at day 6, which is today.

    Thanks for your support.

    I often try to do a low calorie diet too. Many people suggest more calories, but this works for me.
