Lost weight and lowered sugars now going back up
Posted Monday, March 18, 2013 at 4:10 PM

I had lowered my weight by 15 pounds and significantly lowered my blood sugar. I am now up 20 pounds and my sugar is sky high. The only thing I can think of that I am doing a little differently is adding bread and butter to my diet. Can that make such a difference? I use a vegan margarine.

It's possible, the margarine in particular. Perhaps the bread if it is white and truly has no fiber to offer. I would choose breads with lots of fiber and some whole fruit jam or apple butter as a spread. Much better than full-fat spreads.
