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!

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. 

Folly Beach – Day Two


Picture from the park where I camped.
A successful day in every way. I ate clean, I played and spent quality time with my sons. Day 2 and Day 3 are the days the Folly Beach area really shines, so make sure to check out these future posts!

Folly Beach 2015 – Day One



age
Brad, knowing how much I hate to lose, in an attempt to console me adds, "I guess your age is catching up to you finally." What the hell??? Brad meant well when he said this, but to me ... it was like sticking a hot stake into my eye!

Question: Why doesn't the American Diabetes Association or the American Association of Diabetes Educators promote fasting as a means to reduce blood sugars? I think we know... Greed, intellectual laziness, willful ignorance or all of the above.

2015 Fasting Summary

This post provides details leading up to and including my most recent experiment, a butter fast! A couple of weeks ago I concluded a ‘Coconut Oil and Butter‘ fast,  and shared the post of my experience on Facebook.  I had to end the fat fast after only two days due […]

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



insulin
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'.

Freedoms From & Freedoms To


Coconut Oil on Amazon
That's ironic when you think about it. Almost all diabetics have elevated blood sugars (above non-diabetic normal blood sugars) and I had to end an experiment due to low blood sugars. There is a lesson there, if you are paying attention.

If you turn over a rock in the nutrition industry ... you'll find the money of Big Food and smell the stench of greed. I have spent little ink on the American Society of Nutrition or ASN. The American Society of Nutrition may be EVEN worse than the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics. How so? I'll tell you why. :)
