Diabetes Diet And Exercise

Patient professional reference Professional Reference articles are written by UK doctors and are based on research evidence, UK and European Guidelines. They are designed for health professionals to use. You may find the Pre-diabetes (Impaired Glucose Tolerance) article more useful, or one of our other health articles. Interventions aimed at increasing exercise combined with diet have been shown to decrease the incidence of type 2 diabetes mellitus in high-risk groups (people with impaired glucose tolerance or the metabolic syndrome).[1]However, there are no high-quality data on the efficacy of dietary intervention for the prevention of type 2 diabetes.[2]Exercise appears to improve glycated haemoglobin at six and twelve months in people with type 2 diabetes.[3] Nutritional advice and information are essential for the effective management of type 1 diabetes. Exercise reduces mortality in type 1 diabetes and can reduce HbA1c by 0.7% in type 2 diabetes.[4] See also the separate Healthy Diet and Enjoyable Eating article. The goals of dietary advice are: To maintain or improve health through the use of appropriate and healthy food choices. To achieve and maintain optimal metabolic and Continue reading >>

    I've discovered all about Keto about halfway through my 42-day HCG diet (injections not drops) and realized it's basically a bit of a hardcore version of Keto (not sure if that's good or bad lol).
    I've had great results so far and I've inputted the details into the keto calculator as if I started the same day as my HCG diet with their calorie goals and it matches up almost perfectly with where I am today (not surprisingly I guess).
    My last HCG day is the 25th, and looking at the Keto calculator output it looks like that I should have been eating around 920 cals that day if I were to go with I guess a standard keto diet (looks like it goes +10 kcal a day from day 10).
    My question is - in a regular HCG diet process, you are supposed to stop after day 42 and then go to maintenance (or Phase 3) for 6 weeks (in my case). Only then are you supposed to continue weight loss either with another HCG round or not to supposedly 'reset your metabolism and establish a new weight baseline'.
    Considering it looks like my entire weight loss is due to keto diet anyway, and since I am currently in ketosis and already used to being strict with my menu (the hcg diet does not have much fat but I would be HAPPY to add fat from now on :), I am considering just 'converting' into a regular keto diet.
    Basically, Come June 25th, up my calorie intake to 900+ area (or slowly over the course of 7/10 days just to ease-in to it) and then follow the calculator output and increase my intake as I continue to lose weight.
    Anyone here have gone through the process? Is this a good idea or bad idea and I should do the 6 week maintenance before I continue with my weight loss?
    I'm not especially in favor of HCG or not - I happened to try it and it worked great for me. I have no opinion on it as a long term thing or not but I do like the regular Keto.

    Why are you eating at a 72% deficit?

  3. liorwn

    As I mentioned, I set the calculator parameters to match my HCG protocol that I was / am on but I'm not planning to remain at 72% in a few days when it's done..
