Displaying a 12 or 24 hour flat line creates a stark contrast to the typical diabetes roller coaster; the soaring highs and crashing lows are harmful physically and mentally as people attempt to maintain control.

Dietitians Ass of Australia: Low Carb & Diabetes

When I arrived, the sun was not visible due to cloud cover. Then suddenly, the clouds gloriously parted and the sun was visible over the horizon. I watched intently as the sun began to climb the sky over the Atlantic.A glowing, golden orange ball in the sky.

I have recommended water only fasting, intermittent fasting and fat fasts for years. This is especially true if you experience a weight loss stall or a stall in reducing blood sugar levels into normal ranges.

Fat Fast 2015: Conclusion

Each July 4th I am reminded of my personal independence, the independence from drugs and insulin. I want to talk about not only my 'freedoms from' but also my 'freedoms to'.
