I am passing along some information that may be helpful. I have had T1D for over ten years and until very recently, I REALLY struggled with my weight. After diagnosis, treating frequent hypos, and three pregnancies, I gained close to 50 lbs and really could not get it off despite efforts. I tried low carb dieting and running programs and didn’t lose a pound.
THEN, last August, my friend referred me to a trainer who also has T1D. SHe works with a company called Beachbody and literally walked me through my weight loss. If you buy a beachbody program (~140$), she will work with you for free indefinitely. SHe does most of her consulting online, so she can literally work with anyone. It was seriously the best 140$ I ever spent. Working with Suzan, I have lost 30 lbs so far! I still have a ways to go, but I am finally making progress. SHe helps with diet and exercise plans and understands how to help avoid lows during exercise. here is the link to the specific diet/exercise program that I used : http://teambeachbody.com/shop/-/shopping/BCP21D160?referringRepId=1253094
let me know if you’d like more info! Suzan is seriously the BEST and she really gets diabetes
