I have been doing CrossFit for about three months now and I was just wondering if any one does that? I have heard that a lot of crossfiters do the zone diet and was wondering how that works with diabetics if anyone has done that. I am currently on medication and insulin so I tend to get low blood sugars when I don't Eat no carbs.

Well…ive been doing crossfit for over a year now and the problem is that (if you work out really hard) the lever releases its stored glucose during the workout resulting in crazy high blood sugar level after the workout. Some people have had some improvements with the paleo diet but for me Ita still an issue. Will do some testing of my BS during the workout too see how it responds.. Try google and u will See that this is a fairly new problem!
