I've not really been following DDF for awhile now. I did start crossfit in mid Jul and have lost weight. I was regaining while trying to lose on DDF and since crossfit, I'm down 9.6 lbs so at a new low for me at 194.4. A week ago I started with a nutritionist who is also a crossfitter and was told I wasn't eating enough. So I've bumped up my protein and she insists on increasing carbs. I've gone from 20 or less in carbs to 65g at the moment. I'm losing a bit now, so maybe I was starving myself? Anyway, still believe in Marty and his plan...just taking a break for a bit and trying something new. I love the exercise and sleep so much better. later.......d

That sound great..glad CrossFit is working for you. I can't see myself at 71 doing it but admire anyone who can!

Neither Marty or Ted Naiman are low carb the way most here would define it. I actually aim for 70g net carbs but often fall short of that…it hard after being VLC for so long to embrace the really carby foods. Black beans and potatoes are about as wild as I get.

I loosely followed what Dr Naiman has in the PE Diet book. Protein 145g for me at 5’9”. Both fat and carbs end up about 50-70g.




In addition to all those Insulin Resistance articles in post #447. Another new one explain in what Insulin does:

Insulin is NOT Making You Fat (and Here’s Why)

I'm 68 and been a computer nerd couch potato most of my adult life. I knew I had to do something as I could barely make it up the stairs. One gym here was offering a "Reborn" class, for those that are challenged, very sedentary, etc...and that's where I began, 3 times a week. Three weeks ago i began attending a normal class and found I could hold my own. They still modify my exercise as compared to the young folks but I'm now RUNNING! Me, running...never thought I'd get this far. So now I'm working out Mon thru Fri with an occasional Saturday morning.

The macros prescribed to me were 135g protein, 125g carbs and 48g fat. I end up over 100g protein, 40g or so of carbs and well under the 48g of fat. I'm losing consistently now where I wasn't before.

I have Dr Naiman's book and may revisit that if time permits today. Maybe I've been doing DDF all wrong?

My A1C before the gym was 4.7, so BG has not seemed to be an issue for me. I'm do for my annual soon, I think. Wonder what it will be now?

Thanks for your comments. I always find them helpful.

Hi, I've signed up for the January 7 class and I've been playing with the app and testing blood sugar. It's kind of fun to gameify the numbers and see how I react to foods and the timing of eating. I've been posting all the boring numbers in my journal.

Great idea, I played around with the old DDF Spreadsheet for a few months before really committed to the plans. Many of the members of DDF come from a failed keto/VLC approach so many of us have frustratingly high Waking BG, but now we know why. My waking is usually 100-110, then just to throw me off course, this morning was 93 ! Everyone is trying to improve their own numbers...it does not matter if you start as a T2 diabetic near 200 or an elite athletes in the 70s. That Protein First technique really does work.

You may have already done this, but join the Free Optimizing Nutrition Community. That's where all the courses are run, and it takes a while to get use to a set-up that is not Facebook (or at least it took ME a while!) to find my way through the groups. It is an interesting community of people! I am a host/moderator in all three programs and happy to help you.
PS: I go by my FB name there too, Julia Young
