This blog was made to share recipes, ideas and information about a high protein/low carbohydrate lifestyle.

I’m a 45 year old female with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, and I’ve found this the only way to control both my weight and my blood glucose levels.

My doctor was skeptical, so to prove to him the positive effect this type of eating plan has on my body I undertook a month long standard low GI diet as recommended for most diabetics, then switched back to my high protein plan. The difference in both my weight and blood glucose while undertaking the two different eating plans was significant enough that he finally gave me his blessing to continue with my high protein lifestyle.

I eat 6-8 times a day, meals are small but high in protein and low carb/low GI vegetables, and between meals my snacks are only protein. Fruit and complex carbs are only eaten at breakfast.

This sort of diet keeps my blood glucose levels in the 5-8 range, whereas before (with medication) they were sitting around 7-10.

I drink 2-3 liters of water a day and only do moderate exercise (mostly walking).

This lifestyle isn’t suited for everyone. I’m lucky to not have cholesterol problems. Always consult your doctor before undertaking any major lifestyle change, particularly if you have serious medical issues to deal with.
