What are the stipulations regarding fasting during Lent when someone has diabetes?

Don't endanger your health.

I'm diabetic too, by the way. Do your best, but if you need to eat more to maintain adequate blood sugar levels, do it without guilt. If you need to snack because your levels are crashing, do it.

it seems there does need to be a determining factor for where the line is... i understand do your best.... but if you are fasting according to your "state", it's hard to know how far to go w/o endangering your health.... i guess that's where the emergency snack comes in , i would say.... you discovered you crossed the line but can rectify your error by popping a few werther originals 8-) :mrgreen:

There is no need to push things anywhere near the line.

i had cereal with blueberries this morning, i'm having some sort of variety of peanut butter sandwich crackers for lunch, then a cucumber, avocado and mushroom salad for dinner.... that's not endangering any line i don't think

My wife has me on a low-carb Keto diet. So crackers, sandwiches, etc are out, but cucumber salads are definitely on the menu.

Last night I had grilled bratwurst (no bun) with mustard and some steamed broccoli.

Some parts of it are great, others take so getting used to.

Try sauteeing your greens in bacon grease. Makes them so yummy.

I'm not doing a true keto diet, because I do high protein and moderate fat. But same general principles besides.

Banned for mentioning bacon on a Friday in Lent.
