Try Harder

After feeling like I pretending that I am not diabetic for over two weeks while on vacation in Norway, I have come back to reality. I am, in fact, a type 1 diabetic and with that comes a lot of responsibility. I have to get back into my routine again. Testing, carb counting, bolusing and hoping my blood sugar doesn’t skyrocket.┬áMy endocrinologist thought just getting back into my routine wasn’t good enough.

Nope.

I am now on HER diet. 30 grams of carbohydrates per meal with 3 meals only per day for 2 weeks. I’m pulling out all my tricks for this. Using myfitnesspal.com to count carbs, using paleo recipes and gluten free recipes. The worst that can happen is I start to have hypoglycemia or low blood sugars. Also, I will be incredibly hungry all the time.

After this whole experiment, I will be put on Victoza. It’s supposed to help with appetite, blood sugar control and weight. We shall see. In the meantime, I will totally dominate this diet even with my tummy growling.
