Blood Sugar Test


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



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


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!

For decades 'nutritional science' has been little more than the marketing arm for Big Food and Big Pharma. It's time for true science to rule the day and to remove Big Food and Big Pharma's influence.

Water Fast




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


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.

Fat Fast 2015 Intro & First 48 Hours






Blood sugars are THE single most important health number for diabetics, IF you eat like me... mainly fatty meats, leafy green vegetables, eggs, coconut oil and butter...

Day in a Diabetic Thriving Life




Since I began taking the fibers and probiotics on 12/11/2014 my overnight fasting blood sugars have averaged 75 mg/dl. My only numbers above 80 this year were an 82 and 83 on the 2nd and 3rd of January. :) :)

Diabetes Experiments Update: Mr. 59 :)


EVERYTHING we do is an experiment. Everything. YOU are the results of all that you have done up to this point. I urge you to pay attention to your experiment and try to improve your blood sugars, your health and your fitness. You will be glad you did. :)

Another Experiment – Exercise And Diabetes




We are all experiments! Which reminds me of this quote by Eric Savage of MythBusters. "Remember kids, the only difference between screwing around and science... is writing it down." At least in the eyes of Eric Savage, through the years I've done a lot of science. I guess that makes me a ... scientist ... :)

Here is what I did.... Every time I tested my blood sugar I used the ReliOn Micro and the FreeStyle Lite. In most cases I used the 'same drop of blood' but in all cases I used the same 'lancet' cut location. In other words, after pricking myself a few times I actually had to squeeze more blood out of the same 'cut' location.

My personal experiment shows the positive effects resistant starch can have on your blood sugars, therefore potato starch can help you manage diabetes. I urge you not to eat a lot of high carb foods to obtain resistant starch, but to use Bob's Red Mill Raw Potato Starch.
