    I definitely prefer glucose tabs over anything else as well and 90% sure I'll go back to keeping them in all my low packs after I finish my whole30.

    Thank you for the information! I will definitely take a look there but helps that you picked some out related. I'm not doing this to lower the blood sugar but to figure out what works with my body and doesn't in general. I may try later seeing what effects the blood sugar more and what doesn't. I looked at other posts before creating mine about diabetes but the same thing kept happening with the saying that glucose tabs are medicine and nothing really about how to treat lows that would be compliant other than juice, that was suggestion by my Practitioner. I see a Nutrional healer also and she wanted me to try this only because cutting one thing out at a time wasn't working for me and I'm glad I'm doing this because I'm curious to see how foods effect my life from stress to energy to the psychology we have put on food. I love glucose tabs and had that in every coat car and cabinet at work. They were my go to. Taking it all out and creating packets of juice, almond butter, Lara bar and dehydrated fruit was what I did and when I started a week ago it was only juice in the packet. And if I was to run really low there is still glucagon always on me. I'm wasn't saying to quit the honey just thought maybe they did something else on the whole 30. Again, rule follower and didn't leave room for exceptions. They're having a information session and question and answer at my office and will ask on Wednesday night more specifics.

    Maybe I'm just too much of a rule follower but I don't agree with these unless something extreme like that was to happen to me. I have never thought of glucose tabs as a medicine (if they can't be written off as medicine for diabetes camp). I don't agree with the honey being on the no added sugar as long as it's pure, raw honey but again on the list of rules. I see them as quick fixes for lows(which is kind of what they want you to avoid or at least that's what I read the program is about :-/). It takes just as much time to get a glass of juice or juice box or pull out a jar of baby food or dehydrated/dried fruit. You can do your things but just putting my thoughts on the matter. So sorry for being a strict rule follower :-(

    I haven't posted any recipes that I have loved from the Whole 30. Here are my two favorites thus far... Chili from the Whole 30 book (pg. 342) Gołąbki (stuffed cabbage deconstructed) posted on the instagram page Both are super easy and great for lots of leftovers!

    Congratulations to all of us for finishing week one! Challenges for me: low blood sugars, adding rice or noodles to dishes and all the time in the kitchen Wins for me: finding new and creative ways for food, enjoying my taste buds, and sharing the word about the whole 30! Added bonus is you all are the great support system that I need!

    Not treating with glucose tabs was hard for me too. I also like dehydrated fruit as well but make sure you read the packaging because some have added sugar.

    I wouldn't think of baby food but that's a wonderful idea. Totally agree on the eating a whole apple when I'm low doesn't cut it. What do you use in place of honey on whole 30?

    I couldn't taste the coconut milk but the taste was more sweet than savory.

    I made the chicken chowder from the book yesterday and there definitely wasn't any sugar in it but the taste was sweet. Had to add some more peppers and onions to it to make it more savory for myself. Maybe your taste could be changing too? There could also be sugar but I noticed that for myself. Interested to know if it does have sugar in it or just tastes like sugar like the chowder did for me.

    I hear you on the beans factor. I use to live off beans, soy based products and cheese! Glad I'm not alone! Also the sugar and some sort of grain is in everything! I feel like I'm excessively looking at ingredients list even if I know it's okay at or not.

    That's amazing to hear with the A1C! I do the same with juicy juice and have an individual packet of almond butter as well at all times. I'm an odd one when it comes to diabetes and my lows, since I've been on Whole 30, have been right before I go to bed so it's helping with the overnight lows and waking up perfect numbers. Tonight I'm trying to have more carbs at my dinner so that doesn't happen. Can I ask your age range? What was your overnight basal before?

    Thank you! I've been doing pretty much the same as you have and I was just given the idea of trying packs of dehydrated fruit to keep on hand along with the almond butter packs. I didn't know about grape juice so I'll have to try that in the future. I use to wear a pump for eight years but had too many problems on multiple pumps that made me go into DKA. My sugars have been pretty good on shots other than dropping at night but I've seem to have figured that out, fingers crossed. As for the CGM, I have thought about it for wearing it at night. Since being in the whole 30 I haven't had any highs at all but it's only been a few days. My lows have been little so not much needed for correction. I'm not dropping to 40s in the middle of the night and then pigging out on whatever so I can get back to sleep and then wake up with 300 blood sugar. Thank you again!

    Hello Whole 30 World! My family and I started on the 16th. I'm a type one diabetic with severe anxiety, one is obese and has a number of other medical conditions, one has Parkinson's and another is obese with joint problems. My first day was the hardest for a number of reasons but I went with a few people to the auto show and then out to eat after at one of the greatest Greek restaurants. Walking through the auto show where they have pretzels, covered almonds and fudge every hundred feet didn't seem to phase me. It was the restaurant when the waiter brought the amazing bread with olive oil and ordering food. I just said I had allergies to everything not allowed. They were super nice to accommodate me even though most of their stuff is cooked in olive oil and they season everything with plain spices. Never had sautéed spinach before but found that I really liked it. Santorini in Detroit is very Whole 30 approved with accommodations. First day was rough but my second day was pretty well and WAY easier.
  14. I started the whole 30 yesterday with my family. I've been a diabetic for 24 years and takes shots multiple times a day. I normally eat a vegetarian lifestyle because of taste. I use to be prone to seizures at night but they have stopped for a couple months now. I talked with my Endo prior to starting. We talked of lowering my Lantus and actually eating meat full time so I don't drop as often. I know that this has helped type one diabetics in the past with their sugars. Normally I would eat tabs when my sugar has fallen low during the day and peanut butter and juice in the evening. I know that juice is compliant but is there any thing else to use to get sugar up quick and... Looking to hear stories (good or bad) about others that have taken the journey with whole 30?
