As I was watching your videos on 1A/1B and dieting… I think that one of the big factors worth mentioning for us type 1s, is the massive need for salt. Since adrenaline and dopamine go hand in hand and sodium helps with high adrenaline. I’m thinking more salt = more motivation.
I’ve been enjoying a high protein, moderate to low carb and fat diet (in %). What I’ve noticed is the massive cravings for salt. Makes me think of Efferding who seems like a poster dude for type 1s and is huge on high sodium… makes me think of all those athletes you mention who love their CHEESEburger and chicken wings… sodium galore. And yes I love very high salt junk food. That’s why reasonably clean cheese, mostly feta, is a big staple.
Opinions from other type 1s?
