Cutting Back on Carbs for Diabetes or Just for Weight Loss




Are you Type 2 Diabetic? Have you ever thought of cutting back on carbs either to manage your Diabetes or for a healthy weight loss regime to combat medical weight loss and to lose weight fast? 

If your answer is yes, then read on. Lately, since the holidays, I have been eating more and so I have not been eating like I should. So, I have adopted my healthier eating plan for my Type 2 Diabetes. Check it out because it can help you lose weight and put your blood sugar levels down.


I was pre-diabetic for a long time and couldn't get my levels to go down and then one day, my glucose rose to such a high level that I could no longer prevent not going on medication. I have been diagnosed as having Type 2 Diabetes and I am currently taking Metformin. Learn how my low carb diet has helped me to lose weight fast on a medical weight loss diet.


Medical Weight Loss on a Low Carb Diet
I have cut out most carbs and sugar lately because I now have Type 2 Diabetes. I want to take it seriously. Eating a low carbohydrate diet has helped me to lose quite a bit of weight lately and it has lowered my glucose levels. Apparently, if you eat up to 100 grams of carbs per day it will help control your Diabetes blood sugar levels and it can help you lose weight fast.

I have to eat this way because before, I was eating too much of foods like fruit and carbs, which to be honest, made me feel worse and made my sugar levels rise higher. Also, too many carbohydrates were making my sugar levels rise in a way that can be dangerous for Diabetic people. I hadn't realized that overeating carbs could do such a thing.




Today, I eat better. I have been eating much less than 100 grams of carbs per day by eating mostly protein and fiber. I have been losing between 3 to 8 pounds per week from eating this way. The one thing I can't have at present is the fruit because it seems to make my glucose levels rise, according to my glucose meter reading which I check after each meal. Of course, if you aren't diabetic, then add some fruit to your daily diet if you wish. 

I do eat blueberries in moderation adding them in whenever I buy them but this every second week.

Here is a typical three-day diet plan giving you an idea of what I have stuck to :

Day 1

1 slice of nimble wholemeal bread toasted with no spread (carbs 8 grams per slice, 51 calories per slice)

Note: 
Eating oat bran and avocado can reduce glucose levels considerably.

Also, drink at least 10 200ml glasses of water per day.

Also, walk for at least 30 minutes per day or do some light exercise because this will reduce sugar levels if they go up.

  7. Do You knowTurmeric had quite a few benefits .I had heard about the benefits of turmeric for weight loss.it’s very effects on weight loss! but I didn’t know about weight loss. I have used the golden milk recipe for pain and was surprised at the results. I often cook with it too. I am definitely going to try 5-Minute Sauteed Cauliflower with Turmeric recipe.

  8. Great post! I also had a similar experience. After years of abusing my body, I had high blood sugar, high blood pressure and I was also obese. I had to do something or I was going to be put on medication to control my blood sugar and blood pressure.

    After doing some research, I decided to use the 16/8 intermittent fasting method in conjunction with the ketogenic diet to bring down my blood sugar and lose over 30 lbs (13.6 kilograms). By the time I lost 30 lbs., I had lost 4 inches off my waist and my blood pressure is back to normal.

    Kicking the sugar habit is a major step in controlling blood sugar and losing weight. Combining the Keto Diet and intermittent fasting was also extremely helpful in lowering my blood sugar and getting me into ketosis in order for my body to burn fat for energy.

    While I still have 25 to 30 lbs. to lose, I have personally benefited from those diet strategies. I would highly recommend those strategies to anyone trying to control their blood sugar and or lose weight.
