Brace Yourselves! Diabetes awareness month... is coming. November is like Christmas for the ADA and it's cronies. It is the month when the American Diabetes Association holds it's hand out, 'palm up' for an entire month... begging for donations to raise ... 'diabetes awareness'.

Brace Yourselves – Diabetes Awareness Month is coming


To many, following a low carb primal meal plan is very limiting (at least initially) ... Therefore being creative in the kitchen and having a willingness to explore other foods and other food preparation techniques is important.

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 […]

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 […]

In the previous post I showed an updated picture and shared workout videos, click here if you missed that post. I am a type 2 diabetic, with normal blood sugar who is drug and insulin free. :) This post is primarily a pictorial of the rest of my day, highlighting […]

My Primal Update, Part II


“Primal Girl in a Paleo World” ~Joy Young My good friend Joy Young tweeted that phrase the other day… and it immediately hit me in a profound way. Background Joy and I have been friends for over two years…  it seems as if it was a decade ago!  I was […]

In this previous post I discussed fermented foods.  The process of fermenting is a positive thing for everyone… ESPECIALLY for diabetics. Fermenting is a process by which beneficial bacteria  ‘eats’ carbohydrates, thereby reducing the blood sugar affect… meanwhile increasing the nutrients of the food or drink. … it’s a Win […]

Today’s post is a  Paleo Success story from Mark Mealey… a Type 1 Diabetic. Please read this man’s story … he found Dr. Bernstein and adheres to his diabetes treatment philosophy.   Just so you know, Mark is a very knowledgeable guy and freely offers advice to those in need. […]

On Your Mark, Get Set … Paleo!



This meal was totally cooked on the Grill.  A grilled, bacon, egg and beef  MEATWICH! :) ** Remember: You can click on any picture to enlarge it. I tried, very successfully, grilling bacon not long ago (click here if you missed that post) and thought immediately about grilling the other […]

Grilled Eggs? … YES! AND beef & bacon Meatwich!

Preface I have nothing against Vegetarians, Vegans etc … I actually attempted Veganism before my diabetes diagnosis.  I tried many times… but never went an entire day without eating meat. I do believe they are misguided from a nutritional standpoint but I truly wish them all well. I love to […]

Et tu… Fox News = Vegan Diet for Diabetes?

In the post from yesterday, “Fats … AND Red Meat Linked to Type 2 Diabetes?? ” I started out by discussing how I evaluate nutritional and fitness information. 1) Evaluate the information based on my own experience.  2) Search through my Blog Roll to see what fellow paleo adherents say […]

Fats, Meat = Diabetes? Part 2


   Fats … AND Red Meat Linked to Type 2 Diabetes?? Two studies have been released recently..implicating fats and meats with Type 2 Diabetes.  Before we discuss them specifically I want to explain how I look at new nutritional information. I want you to learn how to evaluate studies and […]

This is the last post of three dealing with an online discussion I’ve had with Dr. Dean Jenkins, unless new, original points are made. If you missed the first two posts, here are the links : First, Dissecting an MDs ADA Minion Argument Second,  Dissecting an MD’s Argument Part II […]

MD’s Argument … Part 3

This ‘debate’ is not about who ‘won’ the discussion… Every day millions of diabetics “lose’ the battle to diabetes thanks to high blood sugar levels. Every day millions damage cells which over time, if they live long enough will lead to organ failure and amputations. Life with diabetes does NOT […]

I am SO GLAD IT IS OVER!!! … this is the LAST time I am posting about a lowER fat experiment.  I had wanted this experiment to go longer… but I “caved in to the fat”. :) I’ve tried twice this year to go lowER fat  and each was less […]

lowER Fat Experiment – is OVER


Tomorrow, 8/1 … will be my two year primal anniversary.  This is important to me for one reason … As I went lower and lower carb after my diabetes diagnosis in February 2009 and went fully primal August 1, 2009 I began to tell more and more people about my […]

Steve Status Update 7/31/11



I am NOT a fan of ‘added sugar’, especially High Fructose Corn Syrup (HFCS).  I am not a fan of sugar at all…  because we  know that sugar causes the blood glucose level to exceed ‘normal levels’ and requires insulin to remove it from the blood stream. For diabetics… this […]

I have not provided an update on my blood sugars in quite awhile. After amost two years of following a HIGH FAT meal plan (averaging @ 66% of my calories from fat)  … and a 26 day experiment of  VERY HIGH FAT (77% of calories from fat) I decided to […]
