Just joined this site today (9/14/14). I have been kinda half-assed in managing my condition since diagnosed a few years back. Right now, I am taking metformin 500mg 2x a day but my A1c is still going in the wrong direction (as of 6/14 it was 7.3).
Anyway, I would like to get some advice on preparing to exercise (do you eat before, during or after exercise) and what food should be eaten or avoided before, during or after exercising?
Also, what effect, if any, does taking the metformin pill have on sugar levels if taken before or after an exercise session? I am concerned that if I take the pill and exercise will my sugar drop too low?
Any words of wisdom will be appreciated! Thanks!
P.S. My goal is to shed 10% of my weight which equates to 23.5lbs putting me at 211.5 lbs.
