Activities

My personal activities, successfully self managing my diabetes.



I rebelled against the diabetes care advice the Medical Industry was 'serving', and began following a 'low carb paleo' meal plan since 2009. Not only did I wean off of ALL drugs, insulin, and medical industry services, I have maintained truly normal blood sugars.

A Little Rebellion



I had many fantastic memories that I will cherish forever. I hope to re-attempt this adventure in the future...

Leaving The Wilderness


Want to see the gear I am using on the Alaskan Adventure? While the adventure has not gone according to plans… the adventure continues! Previous posts: Going Wild in Alaska – Intro Going Wild: First 21 Days Leaving the Wilderness   These are generally in the order of my opinion […]

Going Wild Gear List



A diabetic goes ‘wild in Alaska’. This post will describe the first three weeks of my adventure,“Going WILD in Alaska”. The 70 mile canoe ride, half of it solo! Camp activities. Diabetes update. I’ll go into more detail later in the post but in short, I’m still thriving and not just surviving! Yes, […]

Going Wild: First Three Weeks


The adventure will begin in less than three weeks. Make no mistake, I am going! :) I have bought the non-refundable ticket.

Going WILD in Alaska!



I hope you will agree that I am THRIVING with diabetes. Diabetes does NOT have to be a debilitating disease, it does NOT. As I like to say I am 'Thriving! Not just surviving".

Thriving with Diabetes at 55




pork butt is diabetes friendly
I love big butts! ... Boston butts that is. :) Fatty meats are the cornerstone to my diabetes diet.

I LOVE Big Butts


Nobody can stop me from maintaining truly normal blood sugars.

Nobody …



After decades of 'living in the rat race', my love for nature and zest for living was reawakened. Now I try to live 'in tune' with nature as much as possible in the modern world...

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 love the low carb paleo lifestyle. It helps me successfully manage diabetes. I am NEVER going back to the way I once ate and lived. NEVER! :)

Leap of Faith




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 means to improve their insulin sensitivity and […]

Very Low Fat Diabetes Experiment: Phase 1




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 Le Steve


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.

The Battle Rages On with Jennifer Elliott


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.
