I'd think it would be best for you to only eat once a day for now - just to give your body a chance at lowering it's sugar level. You need to spend as much time not spiking your blood sugar as possible. Multiple eatings mean multiple spikes.
He says if you eat your last meal at 5PM and do not eat until the next day (No snacking), perhaps 8 in the morning, you will deplete the glycogen stored in your liver at around 2 am and burn fat until you eat your next meal. Perhaps you might try this?
Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
READ THE BOOK! ...as Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."
Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, and an affront to all I stand for -- the pure enjoyment of food.” Anthony Bourdain
and yes, calories DO count my little piggies
That's only true if your blood sugar levels are normal. How can keeping an elevated blood sugar level be good for you? I know we're all different, even diabetics - but if you track your blood sugar levels through the day, you'll probably see that your numbers are high before you eat your second meal. Why spike them up again?
Unless your blood sugar drops down into the low 50's from not eating, it's not swinging out of control.
Even eating once a day, if you eat too much protein or carbs - it will keep you elevated at a dangerous level. It's better to scale back and let the levels come back down. Then when stablized, slowly add more back in to see what you can really handle.
That's the hardest thing for me to achieve since I am back home from work no earlier than 5 pm, and often after 6 pm (if I went to the gym) and I go to bed around 8 pm, fall asleep by 9 pm. So, by the time dinner is cooked, and seeing I take about 1-2 hours to eat my supper.... That requirement was always a problem for me on any diet. I get up around 4 am, and don't eat till about 9 -10 am, easily, but not eating in the evening, that's a hard one. I haven't even tried so far.Sure does. In the book, Dr. Hyman says not to eat at least three hours before bed time.... Could be right. I will make sure I do not do that tonight and see how things fair. Also planing on doing at least 20 minutes of Viking Warrior today, will be intersted to see how that effects things

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
I just tried the formula PaleoBird posted yesterday. My 1 hour post meal number is 178! So high!
Cutting down the protein to 67g and raising the carbs to almost 30 is not good for me.
I had 340g ground beef, 120g raw carrot, 1.5 cups of canned coconut milk.
Looks like it's back to more protein and less carbs until I'm truly stable. I've noticed I can handle a day of max carbs if my blood sugar level has been steady for a few weeks(it hasn't).
