I knew it was coming; I gritted my teeth for as long as I could… Paula Deen is a diabetic … shocker! She’s just like I was… an obese, carb eating machine. The surprise is that it took this long for her to be diagnosed.  Who knows, she may have […]

Paula Deen and Diabetes

First let’s look at a few facts. 1) 90% of diabetics fail at maintaining normal blood sugar, if you doubt that… read this post. “90% Fail“.  I truly think the number is much higher than that…. but this is the medical industry’s numbers. Using conservative and ‘rough’ estimates… there are approximately […]

Is it just me? Or is the ADA ….


Did you read the latest headlines Yesterday? According to this article, “The Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) is streamlining litigation for all federal cases alleging injury caused by the diabetes drug ACTOS®.” and… “Plaintiffs allege that individuals who use Actos face an increased risk of developing bladder cancer. Plaintiffs […]

Diabetes Drug Actos: Linked to Cancer



November was a month of ‘bashing’ the American Diabetes Association…and a month of thanks too of course. December was a month of experiments.   The popularity of my humble attempt at educating, motivating and entertaining people (the blog) … has exceeded my expectations. Every month saw increases in readership… including November […]

I am experimenting again … eating only butter, cream and coconut oil.  Here is the introduction and Day 1 post, “Fat Fast Day 1.” In yesterday’s post, “Day 2” … I ranted against the ADA and their ridiculous anti-saturated fat stance in addition to providing details on my fat fast. In this […]

I will go into the details of Day 2 … but first a Public Service Announcement (PSA). Do you know what Diabetes is? It is hyperglycemia, which means… high blood sugar. check it out, “click here“. Do you want to stop all of YOUR diabetes symptoms from worsening?  … if so […]

I recently completed a 24 hour high carb experiment. I proved that I was still a diabetic among other things, if you missed the post here’s a link, “Date with the Devil – Follow Up“. This post is regarding a new experiment… in a totally different direction, this will be […]

If you are not familiar with my ‘Date with the Devil’ posts, you should read Day 1  and Day 2 before proceeding. In brief, I went very high carb for 24 hours, ‘the devil’ was high carbohydrates. I received quite a few comments and questions regarding my experiment …  which […]

Why a new experiment? To gain knowledge of course! My high carb experiment was only 24 hours, from Noon to noon, 12/5 and 12/6/2011 but that was long enough. The devil being … carbohydrates. :)   Notes   1) I am a Type 2 Diabetic who successfully self treats my disease with […]

Do you have a child that has diabetes symptoms?  Have they had high blood sugars (hyperglycemia)? … but were tested for diabetes using an Hemoglobin A1c test? If so, I would urge you to read this post and consider other options, an article below states the tests are inaccurate for […]

A1C not Accurate for Children! Thanks ADA


The topic of today’s post is an important one … especially for those seeking a deeper understanding of why “low carb paleo” works.    Bear with me, as the post progresses, there will be studies and more links to help explain things. The cover of Time magazine has it right […]

Your DNA is NOT Your Destiny (Epigenetics)



Please bear with me during the first part of this post… please? … I am in an ill mood! “Why?”, you ask. November is  ‘diabetes awareness month’. Seemingly every literate person on the planet is ‘aware’ of diabetes. It’s in the news, it’s on commercials… how can anyone NOT be […]

Diabetes Fundraising over Education?


  This post originated from an online discussion I engaged in recently, I urge YOU to read this and think about ‘who’s side are you on?” My only reason for participating  in nutritional debates or  ‘online discussions’? I’m hoping a few lurkers may be persuaded to at least check out […]

Whose Side are YOU on?

Serving size matters …  that is. The American Diabetes Association or as I like to refer to them… American Diabetes Ass., likes to tell everyone that they do not promote a high carb meal plan.  Sadly, many diabetics believe them. To some degree the ADA is able to ‘get away with […]

Size Matters….


I’ve been up to quite a bit of “primal fun” over the last couple of weeks … and I wanted to share it with you. I do some pretty crazy stuff at times… Why do I do it? 1) To test conventional wisdom. So much that we have been taught […]

Primal Phun …as a diabetic



This post is going to be highlighting a major contributor to ‘who I am’.   Her online name is, “Dr. BG”. She authors a very informative blog, “Animal Pharm“.  I originally found her through Mark’s Sisson’s blog roll… a huge debt I owe Mark in and of itself. IF YOU […]

The Honor is ALL mine… Dr. BG

I truly love the quote in the picture to the right. It can and has applied to many situations … but could not be more true than today…especially as it relates to dietary policy. Read this post and see if you agree ….   American Diabetes Association ( and ADA […]
