Made it through my Monday Bankstown clinic 🙌🙌🙌. .
This was breakfast - lower carb and higher protein than I used to eat as a kid. 4 egg omelette (one with yolk, using up my Whit's after the apple tart recipe used all the yolks) with a ruby grapefruit salad and Australian fingerlime salad, and a slice of wholegrain toast. .
If you eat fewer than 50g of carbs per day you will probably go into ketosis. Instead of metabolising glucose for fuel your body mobilises fat and protein to make glucose. The breakdown (oxidation) of fatty acids creates ketones. .
Ketogenic diets are proven treatments for epilepsy 😮, and are used for weight loss. You lose more weight initially, but long term it is similar to other 'diets'. A couple of things to note: 🌸 Avoid ketogenic diets while pregnant, if you are taking SGLT2 inhibitors (dapagliflozin, empagliflozin), or if you have type 1 diabetes. Ketones are probably bad for foetal brain development. You may develop excessive ketones with SGLT2 inhibitors or T1D.
🌸 Keto diets are necessarily higher in fat. Make sure you get the healthy fats otherwise studies show you will increase your risk of heart disease 🌸 Ketogenic diets cause water loss, and it can be hard to get enough fibre, so constipation is a common problem
My advice: pick a diet you enjoy and can stick to. That is the one that will work best. For me, I love fruit, dairy and cake too much to go keto.

Diabetes Prevention Week.
KNOW YOUR RISK! ❌
100,000 people in the UK were diagnosed with type 1 or 2 diabetes in the last year. A suspected 1 million people are still undiagnosed.
Any of the below puts your at a higher risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes - over 25 if you’re African-Caribbean, Black African, or South Asian
- over 40 and white - if a parent or sibling has Type 2 diabetes - if you are overweight especially around the tummy area - if you have had gestational diabetes
Note that Type 1 Diabetes cannot be prevented
All positives and my psychiatrist and doctor appointments yesterday. I am changing my anxiety medication (with medication assistance and help from my support team) as what I’m on needs top up medication. I’ve uncovered that I disassociate around authorative figures speaking to me in a firm manner so I can work on that.
My dietary and movement plan are working and I have lost 900g in a little under two weeks despite the handicap of medications and medical conditions.
I do not have diabetes but I will continue on a diabetes friendly diet as a preventative as I am in a high risk category and 44. My other bloods were all clear. So the changes I have made are positive and working. I have a new thing to work on with my psychologist to keep moving forward.
My VOG mask worked well at filtering out the paint and glue as so forth smells at the doctor’s surgery as it’s their new fee Ashley fitted out building and my physio is about to move to, so no more feeling like I’ve been punched in the face. I chose a non threatening model since masks are such a rarity in my area and it was fairly comfortable for an hour and a half.
This week is #diabetesprevention week. What’s it all about? There are currently 4 million people diagnosed with diabetes in the UK and this number is rising. 10% of the NHS budget is spent managing the condition and its vast array of complications. If we can identify more cases of prediabetes we can significantly reduce the number of patients that go on to develop diabetes. So what is prediabetes?

🙌🏻I’m finally starting to feel like myself🙌🏻 .
I wore SHORTS this afternoon for a bit, and felt slimmer than I have since having kids. I worked on the garden and found myself stronger than EVER, all THANKS to the programs I’ve been doing and the friends I’ve made along the way!
Seriously, ever since having kiddos I’ve been self conscious in shorts... not THIS summer! ☀️ .
🙃I’m not saying I’m perfect. I’m not saying I LOVE my legs yet. I’m just saying I feel better than the past 6 years of wearing shorts. That’s a win, don’t you think?! 🎉🎉🎉 .
Curious- -What type of clothing are you most self conscious in? What would it MEAN to you to be confident in it again? 💕💕 .
Yes, I still had to wear long sleeves- this IS Nebraska. 😂🤷🏼♀️
I had a wonderful time visiting the #sagegardenproject in Encinitas today! Their overall mission is to reduce the incidence of diabetes and they do this by teaching about gardening and food at all age levels. Check out this beautiful egg laid by one of the three chickens they have at the school 🐓
I helped in the garden class, which focused this week’s lesson on Earth Day, and also helped to transplant melons from the greenhouse. I then got to join the cooking class where we prepped and roasted veggies from the school garden, which the kids all worked to grow. This week we roasted broccoli, brussel sprouts, and artichokes! #nutritioneducation#gardeneducation#diabetesprevention#handsonlearning#healthykids
Meskipun banyak penelitian mengenai diabetes, namun pada kenyataannya sampai saat ini belum ditemukan obat yang dapat menyembuhkan diabetes.
Suplemen juga tidak memiliki dampak yang signifikan untuk mengobati diabetes. Beberapa suplemen malah disinyalir membahayakan terutama jika berinteraksi dengan obat-obatan yang dikonsumsi oleh penderita diabetes.
Meskipun tidak dapat disembuhkan, diabetes dapat dikendalikan dengan beberapa langkah berikut ini:
1. Mengatur kadar gula darah dengan menyeimbangkan diet dan konsumsi makanan
2. Olahraga teratur
3. Periksakan kadar gula darah Anda ke dokter secara teratur
