@napster4ever I wouldn’t say I was doing VLC…well, I was doing an anti-candida diet for about 2 years. I still had quinoa at breakfast and brown rice later in the day, but that’s about it. I don’t really know what percentage of my diet came from carbs during that time, but definitely not enough.

It’s interesting that you ask about BG control because I just got blood test results the other day, and my fasting glucose was very elevated. The range for fasting after 10 hours is supposed to be 3.6-5.5 mmol/L and mine is 8.6! :/ (Hemoglobin A1C was elevated too – 7%) I don’t really understand. I’ve only been eating more starch and sugar in the last 6 months or so. My meals are always balanced with protein, fat, and carbs, and then I’ll have dessert at the end or something. So high cortisol can affect blood glucose? My DHEA-S is elevated as well. Oh dear, I feel like a mess lol.
