Who is DAR?
DAR is a diabetic who lives a very low carb lifestyle for all aspects of her health. Her goal is to help others live a healthy low carb life in a fun and satisfying way. 

DAR's story:

I am a wife and the mother of 3 sons who are now young adults. I have been very active trying to keep up with my guys and fed my family what "the experts" said were healthy foods. Yet I developed gestational diabetes twice and constantly fought to keep my weight down.  Is it just me, or is something terribly wrong with the nutritional advice "they" give out? 

Despite a normal fasting level, I discovered I have type 2 diabetes back in March of 2003. Using my glucose meter and a food journal, I figured out which foods my body likes and doesn't like. The foods it likes are very low carb.  So that's what I give it!  By only eating foods that won't raise my BGL (Blood Glucose Level) much, if at all, I don't have to take meds to counteract what I eat.

Since starting my low carb lifestyle, I have lost over 60 lbs and I try to keep my A1c at or below 5.0 by keeping my BGL under 100 at all times.  It's not always easy and sometimes I'm a little higher than I'd like, but the health benefits of always striving for my goals are really worth it.  I'd like to keep my eyesight, kidneys, toes, etc., thank you!
