Bodybuilding With Diabetes.

Weight training can be therapeutic and is recommended for the prevention and treatment of many diseases and illnesses. For example, it is recommended that people with diabetes exercise regularly. This is true for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. When individuals hear the term "bodybuilding," they automatically think of competitive bodybuilding. In all reality, this is just one very small sector of a large subset of the population who weight trains (e.g., body builds) for general aesthetics and health. Weight training itself can also be therapeutic and is recommended for the prevention and treatment of many diseases and illnesses. For example, it is recommended that people with diabetes exercise regularly. This is true for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes.

    Best way to lose weight as a T1?

    Hi everyone,
    Wondering if anyone can give me any advice on the best way to lose weight as a T1? I gained almost 10 pounds after going on insulin recently and am having a really difficult time getting it off. I walk about 5 miles a day / 5x a week and lift weights 3x/wk, so I don't think exercise is the problem. I've been told that it is difficult for T1 diabetics to lose weight, but would like to hear your thoughts and experiences.

    After years of struggling, over the past 16 months I've lost just over 5 stone (70lbs).
    The only way that's worked for me was to cut down severely on carbs which meant I could reduce my insulin doses.
    Obviously I also eat fairly healthily anyway, but I don't avoid fats - as a vegetarian I eat quite a lot of nuts and some full fat cheese.
    I set a target of how much insulin per meal, and kept my carbs within that limit. Eventually I found that I was able to reduce my background insulin as well. Steadily as the weight came off my ratios also went down (I must have been very insulin resistant).
    16 months ago I was on about 24 units of long acting insulin, and a total of at least 60 units of fast acting per day. Nowadays I take 8 units of long acting, and totals of between 24 and 30 of fast acting - but I vary this much more than I used to because I don't automatically eat lots of carbs with each meal, which I used to think was essential. Even though the carbs I was eating before were healthy: wholemeal - I was eating far too much of them.

    i agree with lovaduck....... reduce the carbs and reduce the insulin....... keep the bg in a good range
    this will also impact your basal insulin when you lose weight, so that needs to be adjusted too
    i have 70 lbs to lose :-(

    In the 1920s, a team of physicians at the Mayo Clinic developed a high-fat, low-carbohydrate dietary program for epilepsy patients called the ketogenic diet.

The goal of the ketogenic (or “keto”) diet is to induce ketosis, a metabolic state in which the body, unable to convert carbohydrates into glucose, burns fat instead, whi ...
