My fasting is right around 100 and my 2hr pp is generally around 125. Before meal is generally in the 90's and post exercise ranges from mid 90's to high 70's. I can't eat as low carb as some do here but I try to keep it around 100 net carbs per day and 40(carb)/30(fat)/30(protein) ratio. I get a lot of fiber (50-60 grams) because I am a vegetarian, and I eat lentils, bran, and high fiber fruits such as red raspberries every day. I try to eat healthy fats from nuts, olive oil and avocados, but I do enjoy some real Amish butter once or twice a week. I use real sugar in my recipes, not Splenda- I find that it does not affect my BG as long as the food I eat with it has some fat and protein in it - so I add nut meal or chopped nuts to all of my
cookie recipes, add some whole wheat flour to the white, and I use real butter. I eat my
cookie with a nice glass of Hood low carb milk. The protein balances the starch, my BG doesn't spike, and all is well in my little diabetes world.
I do not worry if my fats are high- since I gave up the low fat approach, my trigylcerides dropped to 79 and my HDL has increased to 55. LDL was in the 80's at my last check. My blood pressure has also improved from 120/80 to 112/72 (more exercise now?). I expect my A1c to be in the low 6's next month.
good luck to you! sandy
