Seek nature and you can find it. Yes, it will be easier for some of us but we can succeed.A 'double sunrise"! A sun in the sky and a sun in the lake with the fountain appearing to be completely ON FIRE!

Smoke on the Water, Fire in the Sky

I was approached by DiabeticShoeHub to review their diabetic shoe, I-Runners. I agreed. When I agreed, I was typically barefoot so I decided to wear the shoes for short periods of time to allow my feet to adjust to shoes in general and to these shoes specifically. After a couple […]

Diabetic Shoe Review

I am NEVER going back to the way I once ate.I am NEVER going back to the way I once felt.I am NEVER going back to the way I once LIVED!

Leap of Faith

phase 1
My personal daily goal: Obtain and maintain truly normal blood sugars. Note:  I am content to eat, play and LIVE as I do today… for the rest of my life. But I LOVE to experiment!  And if I can help others find a ‘body hack’ to improve their insulin sensitivity and […]

Very Low Fat Experiment: Phase 1, Body Hack

chart 3
Have you heard of, "24 hours of Le Mans!?" ... this is nothing like that. LOL! :)This post will be pictures of blood sugars, activities and foods for one day. I'm going to try to take blood sugar readings every hour or two once the day begins. Hopefully it will be more helpful and inspirational than the race. Purpose: To educate, motivate ... and perhaps entertain. :)Note: At the end of this post is a Google Doc that is embedded in the sheet. Just 'refresh' the page to see 'real time' results. Isn't this exciting!!! :)

24 Hours of Steve

take action
The lives of diabetics depend on all of us taking action. Not just in Australia but all over the world. If we can put pressure on Australia to rescind it's harmful recommendations, it will send a message to other national groups as well.

Proof of Anti-Low Carb Bias in Nutrition

Diabetes Educators and the Medical Industry do not promote 'self-management'... stating such is LUDICROUS! The medical industry promotes using a 'diabetes care team', all of whom get their 'cut' from public and private insurances. They all combine to make diabetes self-treatment impossible by promoting a blood-sugar-elevating diet.

Ed’s Bill: Government Controlling Diabetes Speech

Dietitian, nutritionist and diabetes educator groups are on the front line of this battle. As more people realize the dietary guidance from them is a sham ... the less people will pay for their services.

Jennifer Elliott, DAA & Call to Action

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.

Blood Sugar Readings: Thriving Diabetic

I look to our distant past to see if there are ways I can live closer to how we were designed to live, but I test everything against my blood sugar levels. Normal blood sugar levels are the key to THRIVING with diabetes, not living according to some dogmatic fantasy reconstruction.

Carb Requirement Nonsense

Ebook: How to Reduce Blood Sugars
It’s an excellent resource for reducing blood sugars as well as regaining control of your health. I only wish it had been available when I began my journey — a must read for all!

Karen Gale: Summary Story

Thanks to Stewart Mclean for sending me the information for this post. As you read this post keep three things in mind: First, I’ve been following a low carb, high fat diet for OVER six years now and as a formerly obese, formerly drug and insulin dependent diabetic,  I THRIVE!!  (6 […]

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. It's reflection colored the water and the waves that broke in its light ...a TRULY surreal scene.

Folly Beach – Day Three

love nature
From sun rise to past sunset, we keep on the move when we are at the beach! As I noted earlier, I had no energy shortage and was able to keep up with my sons throughout the day.
