Started a ketogenic eating plan yesterday to get my blood sugars under control. It's high fat, low carb, moderate protein. It takes a little getting used to, since there is more fat and less protein than I was used to eating with low carb. It's not about eating more meat, it's about eating more fat. Two different things.
Day 1: 147 grams of fat. That seems like a lot. It's really using full fat foods and having 2 tablespoons of butter throughout the day. Not much, really. Heavy cream instead of half and half. Full fat cheese. Fatty cuts of meat.
My dinner was 11 grams of carbs. My 2 hour postprandial blood sugar was 102.
I have two goals now. One is to lose weight. The other is to get off of my diabetes and high blood sugar medications. The medical issues affect my weight and vice versa.
