Unfortunately it's not carbs you need if you feel hungry. What many of us do after cutting down on carbs is to replace them with fats and protein, the only alternative sources of nutrition. Nuts are a good source of both. I buy gluten free nut bars, currently KIND Dark Chocolate & Sea Salt (there are others, eg ALDI's own brand) and packs of Graze Chilli & Lime. There are carbs in both but less than 10g in each, unlike some cereal bars which can have 3 times as many. Full fat natural Greek yogurt with crushed walnuts and some berries is a filling dessert and if I have that after our evening meal I find I'm not hungry at bedtime and am testing in the morning off the back of a 10-hour fast.I do eat meat fish and eggs but not nuts. I eat gluten free porridge and make my own Spelt bread which I can tolerate. I just want to know what carbs are ok as I am hungry a lot of the time. Thanks
I am lactose intolerant. Luckily the higher the fat content dairy and cheese etc the lower the lactose content and much has virtually no lactose especially hard cheeses and blue cheeses. Good quality butter has virtually no lactose. Lactose is a milk sugar so it is a good thing for a diabetic to avoid it.If they are lactose intolerant would butter, cream, and milk be a problem?
I would say you should eat nice juicy fatty cuts of meat and chicken and learn to make gluten free low carb bread and make keto fries that taste a lot like potato fries but without the carbs and with no gluten.I have a limited diet due to a wheat and lactose intolerance and a hatred of Vegetables, Rice and spicy food. Always go to bed hungry. Help please if anyone can
Sorry I didn't mean to cause any offence. I am used to being a teacher and when I reply to one person I am expecting there will be other people listening/reading the reply who may not have the same level of knowledge as the specific person who sparked the reply. These threads (as you know) are read by many people both at the time when they happen and later when new people come onto the forums to seek information. I know I read a lot without commenting in my early days after diagnosis and I had huge holes in my knowledge back then.I am aware that Lactose is a milk sugar thank you !
I think any suggestions help and if a small amount of cannabis oil works for you it's worth sharing. There are plenty of plant based things that help people and cannabis is just that it's not as thought your promoting drug use as the amounts are so small.Although I think LCHF diet is the best way forward I do understand your predicament in seeking an alternative. I must admit that I have been lucky with my control by using an unorthodox method of ingesting a pill containing a very small amount of cannabis oil and it works and this has been my mode of treatment for the last few years. I have not posted my method on the forum because of the fear of causing controversy etc. Actually, it is not my method but through research, I have adopted other people’s ideas. This therefore allows me to eat at will and still maintain a normal HbA1c with the last reading being 39 or 5.7%. I will also be controversial and suggest that Spoon is absolutely right about not getting stressed, as I believe that has a greater impact on high blood sugars than most imagine. I have not posted my method because the stigma surrounding cannabis in the U.K. is still so prevalent but intend to either post in a USA or Canadian forum where it is legal over there.
