Hi! I'm a type 2 diabetic who's in ESRD. I was just wondering how hard was it for you to do Primal but keep your sugars level? I've been trying to stay primal for 2 weeks and have so many lows that I end up having to take glucose tabs or a soda to get back to normal (which is totally not primal). Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
How u doin? ;)
hey long time!
also, do you use coconut cream or do you have a specific coconut creamer where you live? thanks again!
breakfast: 2 c coffee with either half n half or heavy whipping cream and stevia. i'm just now hearing about the insulin response caused by all dairy, no matter the type, but dr B ok's it... ??
lunch: big ass salad, tuna, mixed greens, avocado, some sliced almonds, blue cheese crumbles or goat cheese crumbles, mushrooms, olives, goddess dressing. sometimes, no meat at all, but everything else.
dinner: dr b recipe or primal recipe of some sort. the peanut sauce stir fry, made the primal lovers turkey meat loaf this week, eating that for leftovers. probably about a half c portion of veggies. usually with just butter and spices. probably
snacks: for lows, i sip tomato juice. macadamias, coconut butter (spoonful), cheese if there is no other option.... i have read in dr b's first book in the section on pcos that even on a low cal/carb diet women have a hard time losing. ugh!
hey there! i just posted a host of similar questions on phaedrus's page too, so here goes. how long have you been on the diet? what kind of exercise do you do? what does a sample meal day look like for you? i ask because i am steady gaining. i lost a bunch before i got rx'd and now i am above a beyond my weight i was trying to lose before i got dx'd. i don't have the book, i hope that will solve my probs, sitting down a really reading the PB. i don't eat carbs at all that much, only if i get low from exercise and i have been lowering my insulin so i don't have to treat lows. ugh. i do feel like i am gaining muscle, but that the fat isn't coming off. my clothes are getting tighter and i have a muffin top. help!

Cool. I was going to say that I felt kinda daft mistaking a scorpion for a fish, but I looked again and it still resembles a fish! It's a cool design though, even if it does confuse me :D
