I discovered the forum a few days ago and have been lurking constantly! It's been enlightening!
I'm a type 1 diabetic - 20 years - and I've been coasting along, guessing my way through this diabetes lark, and thought it was about time I kicked my own butt into gear. I'm almost ashamed to admit that my initial motivation to sort myself out has come from wanting to rid myself of the little bit of belly fat that has been plaguing me throughout my 30s...but this has very quickly become about managing my blood sugars and no longer being a slave to diabetes.
I've been low-carb for a measly week now and already seeing and feeling the benefits. A few wobbly moments including anxiety over keto-acidosis risk and stressing over a little elevated blood sugar here and there but I've calmed down and accepted that this is a work in progress, it will take time
So, intro over...
What I would like to know is are there any other vegans about on the forum?
It would be really helpful to share meal ideas etc. Obviously, following a vegan diet comes with restrictions, which I'm cool with, but pairing that with low-carb limits a lot of food options - and I LOVE my food! It' been fine so far, what with only being a week, but I anticipate some boredom on the horizon and want to be prepared so I don't falter.
Any, and I mean ANY, input would be valuable to me re recipes, ideas, thoughts so if anyone has anything to offer...I'm here and I'm waiting!
Nice to 'meet' you all.
