I decided to try out the keto diet to see what all the hype was about. People claim it is the ultimate fat-loss diet, others say it can reverse type 2 diabetes. I had to put it to the test to see if it would help me manage my type 1 diabetes. Before I start, I need to make something clear. I respect everyone trying to achieve optimal health. I feel a duty to share my experiences and highlight the scientific evidence out there supporting it because people need to be aware of the risks and benefits of any diet before getting into it. I have no hidden agendas. I simply want to find the healthiest way to live which will allow people to feel happy and fulfilled. The thing that makes this experiment so eye-opening is, as someone living with type 1 diabetes I get to see objective insights every day into my blood sugar levels and insulin requirements. After two months on a ketogenic diet, I was very lean, fit, had great focus and concentration, could go long hours without eating, had flatline blood sugar levels, and achieved my lowest ever insulin requirements. At that point, it seemed like keto was indeed a magic bullet and I was a huge proponent of that way of eating.
I have a lot of respect for Raymund! My energy levels improved quite a bit as well, and I also felt so much better running and working out. Join this course.

I know advocates on both sides are well meaning but it is hard for me to decipher which path is the better one to take. Lots of people have found these lists useful. You can then fill up with fuel such as fattier foods if you do not want to burn any body fat. If you do want to pass an OGTT all you have to do is increase your carbohydrates for a few days before the test and your pancreas will increase the amount of insulin in your system and be better prepared for a high dose of carbohydrates. We can achieve the Daily Recommended Intake DRI for most of the nutrients while still maintaining a low dietary insulin load.
Forks Over Ketogenic. Insulin resistance not doing the job? But I think it could diet beneficial for people rssistance want to effectively manage their diabetes. Many people robby this to be a passing phase and after a time of keeping the insulin load of their diet low see their blood sugars come down. Yes, I am in insulin FB group. Plant based diets have reversed causes, no omni diet can claim that.
