Hello I am new to low carbing
Hi to all

Last year I lost 2 kg doing low carbing as I am a type 2 diabetic and need to loose 2.5 kg
My go says I have to still use insulin but last year I did it on my own with no insulin at all I want to do the same again what's the best way to Start this again as. I would like Quick weight loss.
I have read Keto diet but still need support.

Do you need to lose 2.5Kg or simply get off insulin? What have you been eating since you stopped eating low carb food?

I am also diabetic. Type 2. I was diagnosed earlier this year. It is going to take a little bit to come off insulin. Make sure you work with your doctor as much as possible. Also remember that when you do get your blood sugar under control, your diabetes will be in remission but you will always have diabetes type 2. If you return to former habits of eating, it will return.
That said, my diabetes has slowly come under control. I still sometimes run a blood sugar as high 130 in the mornings and I hope it continues to get better. I keep my carbs under 20 and follow old style Atkins. Welcome. Keep us updated.

Welcome Dolphin, you have found a good forum for support. The Diabetes forum has a warning at top about medications if you go very low carb (keto) This website also has a good guide to Reversing Diabetes, and basic guides to Keto as well.

Very hard to do when hubby sabatargers your efforts brings home cakes bun biscuits when he knows I am diabetic so selfish to say the least.
