I also follow a VLCHF diet, am type 2 and my control is diet alone. I try to have as fewer carbs as possible for breakfast by eating eggs and having double cream in my coffee instead of milk. Sometimes for breakfast, I have an avocado or full fat strained Greek yoghurt with three or four strawberries or raspberries. Lunch is often a Lidl protein roll with cheese, followed by sugar free jelly with a few berries and some cream or yoghurt. My evening meal is meat, plenty of vegetables from a choice of broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, cabbage, sprouts, sugar snap peas, courgettes, squash and a small sweet potato. I try to avoid root vegetables such as potatoes, parsnips, carrots and swedes. However, I often have a mini Magnum for dessert in the evening.
I aim to keep my bg readings under 10 about an hour or so after eating. My readings rarely go over 7+ and the lowest is somewhere around 5. I limit drinks to coffee and no added sugar squash or cranberry juice. I drink wine at weekends and sometimes have a gin and low carb tonic. I snack on nuts if I am feeling peckish.
There are days when I find it hard to keep to a low carb diet and stray by eating cake or ice cream. I then have to take myself in hand occasionally when my HbA1c test result is higher than it should be. My GP likes my result to be under 50.
Try to keep your breakfast carbs to an absolute minimum, John as this is when your readings may already be high with liver dumps. What do you normally have for breakfast, lunch and dinner, John?
