I’m not sure what you mean by easy?
I guess I wish my weight loss would be faster, but who doesn’t?
I had one three week long period where I kept playing the same three pounds over and over again; it was annoying, but I felt better and decided that that would have to suffice for the time being.
My finger sticks are frustrating, if I allow them to be.
Even though they are better than when I was on insulin and eating carbs, they are still NOT double digits. And my fasting is always 170-200; during the day I stay in the 130s to 150s, although it is slowly, very slowing drifting down.
I dream of a ‘99’ or less glucose.
And I have a blood ketone monitor - for me to get above 0.5 takes an act of congress. I HATE that! I was 1.2 today though, yay!
What IS easy is the not craving. It is the truth. And I eat far less and feel full more easily.
Generally during the week, I IF 16-20 hours, based on whether I feel hungry. I found Dr Fung pretty early on (September) and got to working on IF, which I though would be impossible - I used to eat so much and so often, frankly.
I guess I could share, but it is pretty straight forward:
20g carb or less (I try to aim low),
calories 1385-2237 … based on how hungry I am.
I got this range from the Keto Buddy calculator.
And I IF. Short fasts - most frequently 16-20hrs or so, sometimes 24. I did one 36 but I got a little mean.
I do record the calories and macros because, again, I am fat AND T2DM. I pretty much eat one meal a day, so it isn’t all that difficult.
I really LIKE eating one meal a day.
I’m only a couple months in, so I have a lot more to learn than teach, for sure!
