The experiment to apply three books continues.
I finished reading 2/3 books I picked.
The main things from Diabetes Solution that I will apply are:
- Increase Insulin Sensitivity
The book recommends to eat no more than 6g,12g, 6g each of carbs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I decided to tweak that to 12 and 6 for lunch and early dinner instead. No breakfast necessary.
To stick with this, I will continue with the Keto/Low Carb diet that I am already doing. By having early dinner and no breakfast, I can be in fasted state for about 16-18 hours a day.
2) Increase Insulin Sensitivity
This is important to:
- Reduce the amount of external insulin I need.
- Lose weight
- Reduce spikes and keep standard deviation of sugar readings low.
Recommended ways to become sensitive include:
- Weight training
- Reduce stress
- Use insulin mimicking agents like Chromium, Cinnamon, Alpha lipoic acid and evening Primrose oil
I have started applying these recommendations.
The basal amount of insulin I need is already reducing and my goal is to keep under 10 units a day.
This is exciting.
Next is application of the second book.
