OK.....I have not been eating many if any sweets. (no cookies, cake, ice cream, candy---(if these are called complex or uncomplex who knows does not matter to me) What I do eat is like applesauce or a fruit or sugar free popsicles etc. Cut my meal portions in half simply because I feel "just comfortable" and I eat 2X a day (noon and about 6:00 pm)
Have been doing pool exercises by myself about 4-5 X a week. I have lost some weight in 2 weeks time and have more energy, my BG went to 122 -135 from 165-180. Have also cut out Metformin which gave me severe stomach pain along with nausea everyday for over a month and no it was not going away with time, it was getting worse plus I have something that showed up on my pancreas on a CT scan. Will see specialist next week.
TODAY ---- I splurged and ate a cinnamon roll (wasn't even a good one) and guess what, back to wanting a nap and sooooooo dragging. I am sure my BG is up from it...not wasting a strip to test either, I can tell.
CONCLUSION.....with me it is "sugar" not necessarily ALL carbs that send me to nappy time....guess now I can either take a nap which, helps or go and run around in the pool at 105 degrees out .... =)
