Quoted TextAm I finally making myself a little more clear??
Quoted from GoldieYes that is my concern .. YOU got it.. so I am wondering .. If I eat non sugar foods.. would I still be needing to be eating some sugars??? How much exactly??
It seems to me that the more fruit you eat throughout the day, the more you will crave fruit. So the issue appears to be quantity and frequency related. If you replace most of those fruit snacks with some other foods that are not rich in sugar, it would seem to me to be a very good thing. Of course, I am not a Dr. D, and I don't have the Diabetes Book nearby right now.
I am looking to REDUCE the sugar (to the limit that would allow the blood sugar to stay down.. )
Yes, I think it is a priority.
Victoria... thanks for the reply I think it might have settled some more of the question swimming in my head.. like:
HOW much of anything will affect the blood sugar distribution..and what time of day--next to the protein meals 3 times a day????
I don't understand this enough to be able to answer the question.
( I AM sorry that I can not formulate this more specific- and for the reframing of this thread.. )
My own relationship with fruits is that I only eat it once a day (breakfast), and with some protein, fats and carbs. My mid-day meal is meat and vegetables only. And my evening meal is meat/fish with vegetables plus a starchy vegetable. If I eat fruit again at another time of day, it plays bad with my blood sugar balance, makes me jittery, uncomfortable, losing my sense of peace.
If I need to snack, which I rarely do, it will be a small handful of nuts or maybe a boiled egg.
But, like I said before, I'm not a Gatherer and I don't have the same challenges that you do. I have my own, which happens to be fatigue.
Quoted from Goldie
As a B I am surprised that you are suffering.. and I wonder why.... as a B and here for 10 years.. and still fatigued?? why?? do you know?
