Does anyone here eat low carb?

11 years ago

My doctor put me on a "no to low" carb diet, 20 carbs or less per day, and they are to come mainly from salad vegetables. As I have tried to understand this it looks a lot like the Atkins diet, but my exceptions are only lean protein, red meat no more than twice a week, and limited to reduced fat cheese with only 1 carb per serving. She thinks this will bring my glucose numbers down from pre-diabetes numbers to normal without using medicine. I go back to be rechecked in 12 weeks. My questions here are has anyone else tried this way of treatment, did it work, and how long did it take to see results? All thoughts and comments are appreciated!
