Eating when not hungry
Diabetes Community » Weight Loss

I sometimes (often, but less often now) find that after eating a meal, and not feeling hungry, that I'll eat something. Nothing carb-heavy, just some nuts and dark chocolate, for example. Maybe it's just a remnant from years of doing this. I know I'm not hungry, but sometimes I just feel like I have to "have something". Have people experienced this, and, if so, how did you overcome it ..read more

Trouble losing weight since starting insulin

I was diagnosed 9 weeks ago as diabetic (probably type 2, still don't have the GAD test back yet). In the 3 weeks leading up to diagnosis I lost 15 pounds while massively overeating. I was started on Insulin in the hospital and immediately gained 3 pounds. I understand glycogen refilling and all that so this was expected. As soon as I got home from hospital I started a strict diet (while being prescribed insulin). 1200-1500 calories per day while burning typically burning 4000. After the... Read more ..read more

A w(h)ine about weight loss (or not as the case may be)

Hello, I've lost 4 stone over the past 11 months, but this last month I've dropped maybe a pound. Now, I'll be honest, I drink about half to three quarters of a bottle of red wine most evenings. I do it because I'm used to it. I've been mainly low carb most of that time. I'm feeling a bit deflated (I wish) because I thought I'd be further along my weight loss journey (I hate that word) by now. Summer is on its way, and I'm still fat. My question is, I've been drinking the same or similar... Read more ..read more

Diary of a CEO: Layne Norton (YouTube)

A long one - but there are chapter links to the bits you may be interested in. Layne is a bit of a "controversial" person in the diet/nutrition/fitness world. Mainly because he refutes much of the mantra which is spouted on the intrawebs by people trying to sell you stuff. He does this by referring to actual science, and peer review studies and meta-analysis of multiple studies. His background is in biochemistry as an undergraduate, and PhD in nutrition in his...

Hello all I am confused. I have been put on trulicity and yes, I have lost a lot of weight. I am on the smallest dose and it has been amazing. The problem is, I don't know how it is working. As I understand it, the drug is supposed to stop me from being hungry so I eat less. It doesn't. I have swopped to a lower calorie intake because after menopause, keto no longer worked for me (and a whole host of other things I won't go into here - suffice to say, I stopped keto, went back on it and...

A Tiny Whinge

Bear with me. I do try not to whinge. Here I am very happy with now-normal BG and weight loss through four clothes sizes, all due to keto/low carb and the support from you lot (thanks ever so). And apart from no medic has even SEEN me since original diagnosis 2 and a half years ago, nor asked what I have done to get here - people I know who have seen the new me refuse to believe it's all down to diet, and give me that funny look before telling me I have either had gastric sleeve surgery or...
