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

Without question Big Food, Big Pharma nor the Medical Industry wants anyone promoting low carb paleo dietary advice for managing diabetes. They do not want any group promoting low carb paleo, period. Now there is proof.

Anti Low Carb Paleo Bias



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.

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.

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 […]

Low Carb Paleo Anniversary – In Pictures


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


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



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.
