These days I think they teach to do a little give and take. In a way, I do think that's a good thing. I'm sure the diet recommended is whole grains, no saturated fat.... blah blah blah. When I was a teenager I ate like all friends did. The only difference was I got a diet coke with my burger and fries. haha I started caring more about nutrition when I was 18. That was mainly because I knew I was being depleted by all the drugs I was doing. I tried to eat healthy in my 20's. When I was 28-29, I went from my highest 165 to 132-135 (over the course of 2 years). Then I found paleo at age 30. I wanted an easy way to maintain my weight. It was hard to do, eating 1,300-1,500 cals a day and running 4-5 miles 4x week and lifting 2x a week.
Enter LC and then VLC... then enter Ray Peat. I'll have to check out the Ray Peat diabetes info. I can't remember if I've read it or not.
The bananas are usually kinda spotty. The blueberries were free and organic from my grandmother. I love some cantaloupe!! It kinda bothers me though because I like to measure everything ad I like it to be exact. :/ It would be worse if I had a food scale!
I feel best around this number of carbs. But I still need a day with considerably more to even things out. I have less spikes this way. With a T1, it's imperative to know how to time your insulin to not get a spike. If I eat too many carbs, spike are unavoidable. Your pancreas will just kick in when needed and no matter how hard I've tried I can't ALWAYS get it right.
