Ask the Nutritionist

Posted by jeffsmith23 on 6 years ago Two years ago I was diagnosed with diabetes. I was 57 and 5'9" at 235 pounds. A year later after biking and getting my weight down 35 pounds and my A1C tests were exceptional for over 6 months. The diabetic doctor took me off of all medication and fired me as a patient. This year I had an injury. I fell on my knee during a cross fit class. I've gained 20 lbs the past 3 months and I want to try juicing. After drinking juice this morning my sugar levels were 130. This afternoon my levels were 87. Do you have comments regarding sugar levels and juice fasting?

    your sugars sound fine. IM doing very well keeping mine down...i started at 160 fasting and am now down to 97 at fasting. Juicing rocks at controlling or eliminating diabetes. Best wishes and i hope your knee gets better!

    Dear jeffsmith23, Loved to hear you got fired as a patient! Thats great! It is certainly advisable to change your diet and reduce your calories if you are not completing the same amount of exercise that you were once doing. http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/sweetness-how-to-manage-your-sugar-intake-and-reboot-with-diabetes-2/ http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/protein-the-reboot-setting-the-record-straight/ Let me know if you have any further questions!
