Today's food

Before I start on today's food I just want to say that
a. I'm feeling better than I was earlier, still a bit shivery, but happy, because
b. I can manage on a lot less food than I thought.

Before the healthy eating I would often get hypoglycaemic attacks before lunch and my evening meals. This meant that my blood sugar dropped to below 3.4 and I would go very shaky, and start to sweat and et that way that I couldn't speak, I would stammer - and become very bad tempered. The only thing to do was to eat. I've even had a hypo just after I've finished eating.

Yet since the healthy eating my blood sugar has behaved beautifully. It’s slightly lower at the 2 hour mark but holds steady and hasn't yet one below 4.5 before eating. One thing about the Zone diet was that it was supposed to be good for type 2 diabetics and it seems to be true.

Breakfast: 20 grams Protein powder, 1 cup fruit juice from can of strawberries.

Lunch: 4 oz tuna steak with hot tasting seasoned oil, salad, apple.

Evening: 1 cup low fat cottage cheese 2 half pears from a tin in juice & a little juice.

4 oatcakes & 15 grams smoked salmon

Drinks: 1.5 liters iced water, 1/2 pint slimline tonic water, 2 herbal teas.
