4 weeks since my diagnosis and with a couple exceptions, fasting blood glucose has been near 100 for the past week.
It's been a bit of a trial adjusting to this low carb lifestyle, but I'm slowly figuring out what things I can and can't/shouldn't eat.
High fiber foods are not so bad. The Carribean Jerk sauce at Buffalo Wild WIngs not so good. Most fruits are ok, which is good.
Discovered yesterday that coffee is not so good for my blood glucose levels (BGL). The borscht/beet soup I made wasn't too bad on BGL though. That's good because there's still a lot left and I'd hate to have to get rid of it.
Started the second week of working out at the gym, because I'm told exercise is good for blood glucose control. Going pretty well so far. Been doing a little cardio and mostly strength training. Yesterday was 30 minutes on the stationary bike and back/arms workout. Going to start adding in more cardio workouts this week. Just doesn't feel like a proper workout unless my heart is racing and I'm breathing hard at the end.
