Not to turn Source One into Jodie’s diary, but I do want to give you a quick update since last week’s post. First, I received great feedback and a lot of support and it is greatly appreciated!
I have been checking my glucose 4 times daily: fasting, 2 hours post breakfast, 2 hours post lunch and 2 hours post dinner. Thus far, all have been well under the goals of <95 for fasting and <120 for 2 hours post meals.
By initially going almost cold turkey, I was able to discover where I absolutely needed to add carbohydrates, what types and in what amounts in order to keep my blood glucose at optimal levels throughout the day. All of this proves the all or nothing approach is not healthy nor is it sustainable. Zero carbs is not beneficial to your body and certainly not for your sanity.
In an upcoming discussion I will go into more on the “on the wagon/off the wagon mentality” and look at how different dietary approaches affect how people relate to food.
So, things are going well and we had another ultrasound last week where we actually got a pretty good little peak at Baby P, here he is!
Again, thanks so much for all of the feedback and support of Source One Nutrition!
