Hi, Mama2016. I don’t have access to your food diary, but perhaps you can post here the differences between your menu and what you are doing (for example, which foods you are leaving out). Also, what is your physical activity like?
On my end, I am working with the tech team to see if there is something that can be done with your menu here. It may be that you are getting too much food.
In the meantime, you can try cutting down on eggs (to 1 per day), and see if that makes a difference.

I started TDC on Monday and although I haven’t been able to eat everything daily, I haven’t strayed. Maybe it hasn’t been long enough, but my glucose has gone up (I’m Type 2) and I’ve gained a couple pounds (I know I’m not supposed to check but look and feel bloated). Can you look at my food diary and see if I’m doing something wrong?

Hi, Simona. You can use turkey or chicken sausage or chorizo instead, but you will need to add 2 tablespoons each of butter and heavy cream to the recipe to keep the fat content at the same keto-supportive level.

Hi, Nellyni, and welcome. We welcome your important input, as we strive to base this program on principles of diabetes management. How are the recipes not diabetic friendly?

I just started this club, I am Diabitic tipe 1, I notice that the recipes here are not diabetic friendly. Any diabetics in this group? If there are any, please let me know if this diet really works

Hi, TonyaKay. Please do take advantage of the “Grocery List” function we offer (through the button above your menu). Other than that, we recommend that you ease into the program and make gradual changes that add up. That tends to work better than jumping in head first.

Hi
Speaking of exchanges, any suggestions for nuts since I have a nut allergy.

Hi, Nmarr2000. “Exchanges” are building blocks of macronutrients that are used to build a nutritional plan. They translate to the following approximate nutritional values:
1 carbohydrate exchange = 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 3 grams of protein
1 protein exchange = 7 grams of protein + up to 5 grams of fat
1 fat exchange = 5 grams of fat
1 fruit exchange = 15 grams of carbohydrates
1 vegetable exchange = 5 grams of carbohydrates + up to 2 grams of protein
1 sweet exchange = up to 15 grams of carbohydrates + up to 5 grams of fat
1 free exchange = up to 5 grams of carbohydrates or up to 2 grams of protein or fat

Hi, SimonPurple. You absolutely can repeat menus as much as you like. You can also substitute other recipes. Many of our recipes can be added using the edit tool to the right of a menu item. For newer recipes that have not yet been added into the system, you can use them to substitute for the main ingredient in your meal. You can also match up the exchanges visible at the end of each recipe and when you click on “Exchange View” in the toolbar above your menu. It doesn’t need to be a perfect match to work.

So I can pick a day of my menu plan and just repeat it? That would make a huge difference for me in terms of my grocery budget. And I only have two recipes in my meal plan, one within the meal plan and one alternate one. Can I substitute other recipes? Vegan diet, 50lbs to lose
