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.

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


13zimmer-master675
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.

Explore, play and expand your MIND... as well as your cooking methods and foods. Very slow roasting should be part of your cooking arsenal.

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

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!

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!

2015 Fasting Summary

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
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'.

Freedom From & Freedom 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.
