Thank you Caroveggie for the encouragement. I just get so scared because from the first meal without protien my glucose starts rising and when it hits the 300's I get very scared and feel terrible. Then of course the doctor has a screaming fit and wants me back on the Glucophage that makes me feel terrible and hurt like I am 90 years old! Right now, I feel scared and lost not sure what to do. My reactions with the sugar spiking on veggie meals is what holds me back. There are so many people on this plan, I would think there has to be others that have experience these sugar spikes in the beginning of their McDougall journey? I will read the one you left me. I would love to hear some encouragement to just hang tough for a week or two and it will resolve. I lost 32 pounds since last October and there has not been improvement in the glucose reading.
