I love paleo/primal too. It sounds like you are off to a wonderful start. Welcome to the team!

Hi! I'm new to this group, but not new to SP - been a member for quite a while, although I left for a few years.

I was recently told that my bs is out of control, and in reading through these forums, I found the Paleo/Primal diet. I had inadvertently started eating that way when I was told I was pre-diabetic, and I've started trying my best to stick with the low-carb/Paleo/Primal. So far, I think I have only had 1 day in the last 3 weeks that my carb intake was over 100. The garden planting is starting to pay off, and I'm sure that doesn't help in the slightest. emoticon

In addition to my bs being much more stable (and hopefully lowering my A1C), I have started losing weight, and my DF has accidentally started losing as well!

Thanks Sparkers!

I also feel better when I eat less carbs.

I used to eat low carb, basically no refined sugar and felt so much better. Decided that I'm going to reduce carbs again to feel better and rev up my energy and weight loss.

Welcome to both ALEXZ2011 and TWEETSIE2984.

While low GI has some merit, I've found carb counting is more effective.

I also agree with HYEGEEK, this is a "way of eating".

I am new to this team, but not to counting carbs. I am diabetic and my dietitian told me to count carbs and eat six small meals a day. So far it is keeping the bslevel and I have lots more energy. She told me exactly what to eat for each meal. I see no reason to go back to my old wayof eating. Just feeling good.

As an R.N. I don't recommend that anyone take any supplements or over the counter products without checking with their doctor first. I've seen people get renal failure from a single normal dose of Tylenol and Mortrin taken together. Some meds combined with each other are dangerous.

That's good advice. A diet tends to be temporary. What most of us need is a new way of live. For me, learning to go lower, smarter carb has pretty much given me a new lease on life. I'm not planning on changing anything any time soon.

I am new to this group, also new to
Low GI way of eating had two doctors
tell me to start it. One a DO and the other
my Cardio doc. I am also taking CoQ10
they started that two weeks ago. Since
they will be keeping track I have to be
careful. They did tell me that I do not
have to be perfect. Take one meal and
snack at a time. I have learned so much
Since I started this way of eating, not to
consider it as a diet. Diet is not a word
they want to hear. LOL
Looking forward to getting to know everyone
here.
No one should take the CoQ10 without
talking to your doctor.
