Hi**** Were you following a diet plan/what else were you eating along W/ LC? Protein affects BG a lot more than people realize and often don't cover for it appropriately when doing low carb. I've also heard of people getting resistance with high fat, although that's what I eat w no problems.

Hi**** I still crave them once in a while, but I make faux versions of just about everything so that's great. Last night I had low carb versions of pancakes with syrup, ice cream, and stir fry with rice. Not gross, I promise. Delicious!! And with no spikes.

****I also find that Dr B recommends higher protein than my BG can handle. If you were following him strictly that could be one reason behind your IR issues
