Day / Diet For Mark Hoile
Glucose readings are done every 1.5 - 2 hours if possible, to ensure blood
glucose readings stay stable, (6.6mmol)
06.30: Check blood glucose reading to ensure they are
higher than 12mmols (if not eat toast, no insulin)
Training on the water (up to an hour and a half training on the water/or
in the gym) ensuring I drink 1 litre of water with 18% glucose added to
maintain a high glucose level.
Come off the water/gym, check blood glucose. Drink 500ml of original lucozade
and inject 10 units on insulin (Humalog).
Breakfast, oat based cereal, toast, orange juice and water, inject a further
12-14 units of insulin (Humalog).
Train either in the gym (weight lifting) or swimming, always having a
drink to hand, containing 6% glucose.
Lunch inject 12-14 units of insulin (Humalog)
Lunch: Sandwiches ham or cheese, water, fruit, crisps (salt and vinegar)
or I have a Jacket potato with tuna / cheese / chicken / baked beans with
salad, followed by something sweet.
Small snack (i.e. Flapjack or chocolate bar). Inject 6-8 units of insulin
(Humalog). Some times it is not necessary to inject if I have a very low
long acting insulin 32 units (Humilin I). I inject this early in the evening
so by the time I am training the following morning; I have the lowest
amount of insulin in my system as possible.
Evening meal. Inject between 14-16 units of insulin (Humalog).
Evening meal: Pizza / lots of pasta and meat (very much normal food).
