How long has it been since I've visited DC? It's been too long! I was not taking my health seriously and decided to step away from forums for a while. I'm still in the "pre" diabetic stage, but I can now add heart disease to my bio. In Dec 2017, at the age of 54, I started having chest pain and ended up with a stent in my main artery. I had 99% blockage. Now, I'm on a boat load of meds, am walking daily, and attempting to follow the cardiac diet the Heart Center sent home with me.
I am struggling with the cardiac diet as I do not respond well to carbs (both my blood sugar and weight loss suffer). I'm to limit my meat protein to 6 oz per day. They strongly encourage oatmeal. I love the stuff, but oats don't work so well with blood sugar. Between pre-diabetes, diverticulitis, and coronary artery disease, diet seems overwhelming.
Have any of you dealt with coronary artery disease yet managed to eat low carb?
