I once thought that going on a low carb diet translates to bland and boring meals and drinks. Later did I realize that there’s a lot of healthier alternatives out there, which are readily available and easier to purchase.
When I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes, I know I had to change my diet. My initial thought was giving up all the sugary treats. My world crashed when my doctor told me that I shouldn’t only give up the sweets but I should cut down my rice and go 16-hour intermittent fasting.
It was very hard at first. I tend to binge on sweet treats especially when I am stressed, tired, anxious and depressed. And yeah, I also eat when I am happy. Name all of the human emotions you know, I have reasons to eat something sweet.
Before, when my work calls for extended hours, which actually happened most of the time, I would buy ice cream, cakes and drink soda. I had to feed myself with these sweets to experience the sugar rush, and prolong my waking hours.
My energy would crash so hard afterwards that sometimes I would have to feed myself again with those sugary treats just to have a boost of energy.
It was an endless cycle. The stress, poor eating habits and unhealthy lifestyle – these have taken toll in my body.
Those severe headaches and fatigue that I experienced for years were symptoms of my disease.
When my diabetes was confirmed, I was forced to change my eating habits. And I am so glad that I did because these helped me big time in easing my pains and the lethargy.
With the diet change, I was able to shed some pounds. I am far from my ideal weight. Still a long way to go. But I am certainly happy that I am feeling the improvements now that I rarely have migraine attacks and I am feeling much better.
It is so delicious that I don’t feel it is a no-sugar drink.
