Low Blood Sugar

I have been journaling everything I eat as I try to balance my blood sugar. In this post I am posting the first 3 days on this diet.

Cottage cheese, Oat bran, celery w/ cream cheese, tuna steaks and salad, swiss cheese, celery w/ cream cheese, salad and Italian Casserole, swiss cheese. All these things included no flour, no sugars, and no fruit. I woke Monday morning with my normal headache and achy body. I got a really bad headach mis afternoon and had to go take a nap. I slept for an hour and slept hard, which is unusual for me. I went to bed fairly early too. I drank water all day and took a 1/2 mile walk.

Cottage cheese, cooked oats, fresh broccoli, cauliflower, and bell pepper, chicken and dumplings, green tea, meatballs with stir fried green beans and mushrooms. I goofed with the chicken and dumplings at a restaurant. I didn't eat my bedtime snack because I was in bed by 7:30. Stomach felt yucky and I was very tired. By dinner time I couldn't sit up anymore.

This has been very hard, but I really want to feel better. I'm tired of living like this. I am pretty sure all the headaches and stomach issues are from sugar withdrawls. A few more days and I will hopefully be feeling a lot better.

Cottage cheese, omlet, string cheese, veggie stir-fry, salad, chili (no beans) w/ cheese, celery w/ chesse. I'm getting tired of the same foods, but I'm not quitting. I did not feel emotionally well all day, but by evening I was feeling much better and not tired. I think I finally made it to the top of the mountain!
