Whole30-2, Day 11

I'm 11 days in and am learning lessons again. I started because I have a point to make with Dr. Hoag. No, I will not start juicing like he wants me to and there are more reasons why than I can list. Mainly, though, I like to eat.

My blood sugar has improved to the point where one of my medications was cut in half and may need to be discontinued with the low carb eating. And, I'm losing weight. It doesn't matter if I get on the scales or not, I can feel and see it.

I'm finding it less difficult to stick to the rules, though I do eat sugar-free mints (call the Whole30 police).

Another thing I have learned is that golden potatoes are my friend. Like pumpernickel bread, they do not raise my blood sugar like a traditional or red potato would do. I've read that the glycemic index is much lower for the yellows as compared to reds. A potato a person with diabetes can eat without worry! At least that is true for me.

I have 19 days to go and I'm fine with it. I am looking forward to seeing my doctor next week with improved sugars and less weight. And I will let him know I'm not juicing too :)
