Update: I have a headache, anxiety, and I feel stabby - but I don't feel draggy and tired!
Diabetes is rampant in my family too. I was "pre-diabetic" when my thyroid finally crapped out, and I gained like 20-30 pounds in two months, my weight, even though it wasn't the heaviest I'd ever been, jumped so high, so fast, my blood sugar started getting scary. Doctor gave me 6 months to get it back down (I got thyroid meds too...) and I did it in three. Low-carb is so helpfulI'm not diabetic , yet! Though I have a few risk factors. My size is a big one, family history Blah blah.
The BSD and the university studies it is based on has been reversing Type 2 diabetes. It is perfectly within your ability to never get it. I'm ccertainly going to try.Diabetes is rampant in my family too.

(I probably really should find a new doctor now that I've moved, but transportation is suck a bitch right now :/ )
Eventually, I won't be able to stave off the genetics any longer, but for now, I gotta do what I can. No way in hell I can poke myself daily.
I'm going with a giant protein salad for dinner I like white beans, tuna, and spinach with some olives thrown on top (I usually do dried fruit...) tossed with olive oil, lemon juice, and balsamic vinegarI slept in, had some ACV and ice water, laid back down b/c my uterus is turning inside-out (thanks, PCOS), and just now am getting to my coffee. (no sugar!) at almost 1pm. BUT, I usually have black coffee in the mornings, and don't add calories/cream until afternoon (and then at 1-2 have a big-ass salad, or leftover veggies+ protein, OR a snack if I'm having a can't-eat-but-dizzy kinda of day. )
I'm pretty sure if I tried this I'd just replace every meal/snack with a burrito and gain 1,000 pounds.I think the cravings have actually died down a little bit today I feel like life can be worth living even without sugar
Got a latte as a treat today - just plain, not vanilla like usual. Still good since I drink my coffee black it feels indulgent to have milk with it.
AND I learned that most of Chipotle's food has no added sugar, so I'll be happy to get a burrito later
I love that cereal..... These few days are such a small portion of my life relatively speaking but I'll be happy to be done (or maybe in the rest of this time I'll totally get over sugar and not need it anymore? ha ha)@Sondi I'm gonna be real with you, I can't follow this thing because the last trip I took to Costco they had Cinnamon Toast Crunch on sale and I bought a box, and a box of cereal from Costco is like 4 regular boxes.
Also my avi is holding a bottle of maple syrup. But I support you 100% and I hope you succeed.
I'm pretty much not hungry in between meals now... even cheese doesn't have the lure of sugar. It's so sad! I want to eat all the time because I like eating but I'm really not hungryI'm pretty sure if I tried this I'd just replace every meal/snack with a burrito and gain 1,000 pounds.
yikes!I might try to join you next time! I had another epidural steroid injection Friday and I'm basically devouring everything like Kirby ATM so I'd fail miserably.
Is it getting any easier yet?!
