andee's log - type 1 diabetes


Recommended Posts

I'm on day 5, but I wanted to do a post to catch up to day 5.

Stats before Whole30

  • Weight – 150
  • Energy – tired 85% of the time
  • Eating – no control, ate everything
  • Exercise – mediocre
  • Sleep – always fall asleep, never feel rested
  • Mood – erratic, unstable, emotional & cranky
  • Body fat – 27.25%
  • Average Blood Sugar – 266

I wasn't going to log anything here but then I thought it might be beneficial to any other type 1 diabetics out there thinking about doing the whole30.

I've decided that I've been eating too much fruit, so I am now trying to focus on veggies more. I have been using dates to correct my low blood sugars. I'm worried eating too many dates is going to prevent my body from going through detox from sugar. I would LOVE anyone's input for what they use to up their lows.

You can see it has already drastically changed my blood sugars.

I'm interested in reading about your experience. Your sugars definitely look better already!

I don't know about your body going through detox from sugar. I'm curious about your psychological relationship with sugar... do you see it as solely a method to get your blood sugar back up? Or do you crave the taste of sugar?

Hi Emily,

I haven't been craving the taste of sugar, not yet at least. So far it has been solely a method to raise my blood sugar, or a means to survival. I'm finding it surprising that I haven't had actual sugar cravings. We'll see, thanks for the input.

Day 5

B: 2 eggs, homemade mayo, brocolli, black coffee

L: Brocolli, Grilled Chicken Breast, 1/4 acorn squash

D: 2 salmon & sweet potato balls, strawberries + nectarine + 1/2 lemon blended

Snacks: dates, almonds, 1 salmon bite, 1/2 plum, coffee, bannan whip w/ almond butter

1. Banana whip is incredible! I never knew anything could be so good. I was afraid it would send me into sugar craving mood, but I drank some water afterwards and was fine.

2. I had to fight pretty hard to keep my blood sugar from crashing from 5 pm on - thus all the fruit.

B: 1 salmon & sweet potato patty, homemade mayo, 1 egg, 1 cup romain lettuce

S: 3 dates, 4 almonds

L: 3 salmon & sweet potato balls, salad (2 c. romain lettuc, apple, coconut flakes, carrot, celery)

S: celery sticks w/ almond butter, orange

D: Pea pods, steak (size of palm) and homemade gaucamole

S: 3 dates (before bed low blood sugar

Average Blood Sugar: 126

1. I was really tired by 8 pm tonight; maybe I need to eat more carbs or maybe my body is just adjusting.

2. Mild stomach ache after dinner; could have been the lime in gauc or the fact that I haven't eat red meat in 14+ years.
