I have had a wake up call. About a year ago, I started to have spells of nausea and stomach pains and sometimes I would even throw up. I also was very very tired and moody. I wasn't fallowing my diet plan then, and I ate whatever I wanted. I never felt full. Seemed like to me I was always hungry no matter what I ate. so I continued to stuff my face, eating was the only thing that stopped me from being nauseous. I could not figure out why I was having so much pain.
One day I came across a posting on the internet about insulin resistance and pre-diabetes. I had all the symptoms of such illness. So I continued to do some research and decided to start eating a lower carb/ no sugar diet. Low and behold my stomach nausea had gone away, but anytime I ate something with sugar in it, I once again get that burning aching stomach pain again. I bought a glucose meter a week ago and I have been keeping track of my blood sugar. I can say that my numbers matched up for someone with pre-diabetes. When I eat bad carbs or sugar my blood sugar is in the diabetic range. If I eat healthy then it's an ok number, not ideal, but I'm working on it.
And that is my wake up call. No longer am I going to ignore my body and treat it like trash. I don't want to go back to the way I was eating, I really can't or I will get sick again. I started back in March and have lost 20lbs since I started eating low carb/no sugar.
