I am one week into my Whole 30, and while I have been feeling pretty good (less highs and lows with my blood sugar), sometimes it still hits me and hits me HARD. Yesterday morning, I couldn't do anything to keep my blood sugar up, and I hadn't taken any fast-acting (or bolus) insulin all day. I even had to sip coconut water (boy I hope that's okay on the Whole 30... I think it should be) just to keep myself from going low. Then, I got home for dinner. It was all down hill from there. I had some sweet potatoes with my dinner, and after dinner I was craving SUGAR. I submitted to my weakness and had 2 medjool dates. Bad, bad, bad. That was when my decline started. I. Felt. TERRIBLE. My blood sugar skyrocketed to over 300. I was practicing guitar and had to stop because I felt so terrible. I fell asleep on the couch after taking some insulin at 9pm - seriously in a "sugar coma." I am realizing I CAN'T DO THIS ANYMORE! I need to be satisfied sipping some herbal tea for my "treat" after dinner (if I need it). Seriously, what was I thinking?! It doesn't matter if I have ice cream or "Whole 30 approved" dates - they are basically feeding my body the same sugar rush that is so terrible for my diabetes. I felt so sad and started to cry because I am so tired of the roller coaster I go through every day with my highs and lows with my blood sugar. I am going to try to re-energize, and use the rest of my Whole 30 to really try to get in control of my blood sugar levels. Yes, I can have carbs, but they need to be in amounts my body can manage on its own. Sweet potatoes and dates all within the same hour is simply too much. Let me know if you are a type 1 diabetic and have tips on how to naturally manage your blood sugar.
