So I've heard and read several times lately that there's a "cure" for diabetes only to find out you eat 600 calories a day for 8 weeks. Does anybody buy this idea? So many things seem wrong with this: my numbers are relatively good, from around 100 or less in the morning to highest of 120 during the day. I do need to lose weight and one of the questions I had about this "diet" is how drastically will this affect my glucose numbers? Will I plunge into a low? Another question, how do I get the nutriton I need on 600 calories a day? I suppose I can munch on greens all day…not good for me because I must avoid foods with vitamin K in them.
I hate the fact that it's harder for me, as a diabetic, to lose weight. Add in the fact I'm 50 (strike two). I'm almost (almost) tempted to try the 600 calorie a day diet but what happens after 8 weeks? Can I go up to 700 calories a day??!!
