This is What I Eat On My Low Carb Low Sugar Food Plan

low-carb

At the time of this post, I have been eating low carb and low sugar for 4 months.  I brought my A1C number down from 6.3 (high pre-diabetic) to 5.9 (low pre-diabetic) after eating this way for just 3 months.

I was super strict during those first 3 months and did not even eat fruit. I have added fruit now but I still eat very little fruit, like maybe a total of 2 or 3 fruit servings per week, or less.

For me, as soon as I started eating this way, all my cravings disappeared.  And they are still gone.  I’m not sure if it will be that way for everyone, but I’ve come to learn that sugar is just as powerful as a drug, and seeing as though I’m the addict type, sugar is now a no no for me. Carbs turn into sugar if not burned up, so going low carb and low sugar has been a life changer for me.  It even has helped my depression!

Below is a list of the foods I eat.  The list can certainly be longer, but it just happens that these are the foods I chose. Each time I do my grocery shopping, I check this list to see what I might need.

If you give this food plan a try, please let me know how it works for you! I’m especially curious to know if your cravings go away. But I must say, I have tried low carb before with no success at beating the cravings, but I never tried it as strictly as I did for the first three months.  I think now even if I had a craving, I’d be able to just ignore it because I’m so used to my new way of eating.

As for weight loss, that has been minimal. I’ve only lost about 15 pounds in 4 months. But I am not doing this for weight loss. I’m doing it for my blood sugar. And losing the cravings is so freeing that I’m totally content with whatever weight my body decides to be. I feel FREE!!!

The few times I strayed from this plan (Thanksgiving, Nashville) I was quickly able to get right back with the program. My cravings did not return. However, I didn’t go hog wild on sugar, but kept my stray pickings to a minimal. I know for a fact if I were to go back to steady amounts of sugar, my uncontrollable cravings would return. I can’t let that happen!  My cravings were so bad that it was like a form on insanity!!! I NEVER want to go back to that!

Good luck to you in the new year!

I have done lots of reading about low carbs and I find that the Atkins website has some good info that will help you decide what other foods you might want to add to the list.  They have different levels of low carb plans. You can get some info here. I am in no way affiliated with Atkins. I just like their site.
