Just curious if any type 2s have tried intermittent fasting.
I was doing it for a few weeks and succeeded to lose about 25 lbs, but I've hit a wall with it. I ended up doing it incorrectly, saving calories for later in the day when I was actually hungry, then totally overeating. I was playing it really sloppy with the carbs too, avoiding sugar, fruit and starchy veg but still overeating whole grains on occasion. I hadn't tracked bg for a long time but recently started doing it again. I found that any grains and legumes were keeping my bg too high. I'm currently limiting my carbs to less than 15 net grams/meal.
I'm trying to get back to eating a small breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a 24-hour fast thrown in once or twice a week. But the fasting seems harder to stick to now.
If you're diabetic and doing IF, please share how it's going for you.
