Low carb eating most def is the best way to get your blood sugar under control (along w/your meds if you need).
Low carb eating (for most folks) will help you to drop some pounds. Again, I say for most people, I don't think I'm one of them.
After 30+years of dieting, I have reached the conclusion, to lose weight, I have better "luck" with eating a lower calorie diet. It's what my body responds too.
The problem with the low calorie thing (in the past) was not being satisfied - always hungry. A hungry person is a miserable person - and who wants to be miserable?
I have had some success with a low carb diet so why not stick to a low carb diet? Same reason, never satisfied. Too many of the things I love are not what you would consider low carb. And I'd ALWAYS binge on those things. I'd do great for a bit than BAM! Horrible way to live.
Anyhoo - My Philosophy: Too Each He's Own: Do what works for you. And if what you're doing isn't working, find something elese, do some twirking, etc.
I'm more comfortable (for weight loss) with eating low calorie but with some adjustments, meaning, I still want good fat in my diet: mainly avocados and olive oil. And my goal is not how low calorie can I go but how I can get the best value in what I'm eating....calorie, nutrition and taste wise! I will still watch the carbs, that's fer sure. I'm diabetic, it's something I will need to do for the rest of my life. I'm a huge believer you've got to keep the carbs on the lower end for overall health, especially for diabetics. I've seen this for myself.
My A1C before low carbing: 11.8
My A1C after adopting a low carb lifestyle: 5.6
So ya, low carbing works to lower your blood sugar.
Not really sure what it is now - a doctor's visit is on the "To Do" list.
I'm 45, very happily married and I'm ready to take care of this wonderful life I've been given! That's why I created "A Straight Line in the Sand" .... a new blog for My new mindset in losing weight.
