On DiabetesConnect.com, someone posted a question about why insulin causes you to gain weight. I read it's because it signals for fat retention and carb cravings.
However, it reminded me I had a similar problem with metformin - my oral diabetes medicine. When I did the green juice and was eating 100% raw, my carb cravings went completely away. I mean, I looked at a hamburger bun, a roll, a donut, and actually was turned off.
I restarted this oral medicine because I wanted to eat fruit again. I missed fruit. Immediately after I restarted the metformin, I got INTENSE constant carb cravings. I wanted Twinkies, donuts, bread crackers.
My diabetes medicine...which is supposed to help by body combat the ill-effects of too many carbs, actually causes me to crave carbs?
