I was diagnosed Oct 2nd with type2 with a blood sugar of 425. It does run in my family but i never knew what it really meant to be a diabetic. I just saw my mom inject herself with insulin and ate like normal. I fortunately do not have insulin and I am on Metformin 500g (2x day) and Tradjenta (1x a day). Since diagnosis, I have been searching the internet and researching keto/paleo/intermittent fasting since that is what I have found to be helpful to many people in this community. I wanted to find out from others who also have incorporated the keto/paleo/intermittent fasting, where to get recipes? Were there major side affects to switching to the above way of eating? Did anyone get negative feedback from family members about doing this and how they dealt with that? I kind of don't want to tell my family because they are very judgmental (except my dad) and want to tell me how to do things without knowing what it's like being a diabetic. Any feedback would be appreciated.
