I know there are other type 1 diabetics out there doing 80/10/10. Please let me know if overt fats are making your BG rise, as I truly believe that is the reason I go high, as when I don't have them,…Continue

I was quite ill and doctors had no answers for me so after months of running in circles and stressing over getting nowhere, I decided to give 80/10/10 a try. I have been following 80/10/10 for 6 weeks now and i am loving it!!! I already feel better and couldn't imagine going back to my old unhealthy ways (even though in the eyes of my doctors, my diet was considered very healthy!). However, I do need some help. I am an insulin dependent type 1 diabetic and I seem to be gaining a small amount of weight. I am totally strict with the diet and my fat intake is very LOW. Since the diet is high in fruit, I am required to take insulin for all the carbs. Fact! Insulin can make you fat. I am normally 113 lbs. and am now at 119lbs. Is there anyone out there with any experience in this area? I really do need some help as I want to make 80/10/10 my way of life but do not want to continue to gain. Help, please :)

Hi Rita ! I have got my patches and i put one yesterday, (during 24h). They say to put 1 patch every 5 days. I wonder if same day each week would be enough (more easy to remember) I did not feel anything more or less. What is your way to do ?
For relaxation the meditation groups have alot to offer. Yoga is a very good path.
Here's the basic yoga one, pranayama: sit with back straight, eyes closed, slowly breathe in, hold breath, slowly breathe out, hold breath, repeat... Focus all of your attention on your breathing. If a musical ring manifests in your mind focus on that and if a beautiful light begins to fill your mind focus on that.
Hi Rita. My sister is a Type 1 too so I'm very interested in how 811 is working out for diabetics. Glad to see that it's going well for you. As far as weight gain, perhaps eating less and getting the additional protein you might then need with grass juice?
I used the search on this page and found a zillion links. Here's 2:
