-Another major pitfall for me was avoiding sugar. I'm convinced that glycemic control is imperative for E4s in preventing AD/CVD and in reducing general inflammation. Seems to me that this would be MORE important, not less important, in preparation for surgery. I've worked very hard to maintain low blood glucose that rarely spikes. I was asked to do a bowel prep, in conjunction with a clear diet, the day before surgery. A clear diet is supposed to provide around 1500 calories of mainly simple sugar: jello, fruit juices, Popsicles, etc. NONE of which I choose to eat. I had the option of fasting, but I knew I would also be denied food the day of the surgery. I opted to sip organic broths. Once cooled, I got calories by adding EVOO. Ingenuity is the mother of invention This technique is non-physician approved...but got the job done. I had to drink several bottles of magnesium citrate. Sucrose/sugar is a major ingredient. I found alternatives that used saccharine- meh, but avoided the BG spike.
