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

My lowER FAT primal experiment (Round 1) has been over for two weeks now. I’m running behind on my postings.  Before I start… I want to say this… this experiment was NOT low fat… it is lowER fat. :) If I have learned ONE THING in my two years of […]

lowER FAT Experiment – Update

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 […]

War on Sugar

I usually save the lean cuts for leftovers, adding butter when eating them separately. Eating a ‘whole’ chicken is […]

lowER FAT & Blood Sugar Update 7/7/11

Today, on the 4th of July, attention in the US is on celebrating our nation’s independence.  As is ‘the usual’ my thoughts turn to this world’s growing health problems and the growing drug ‘dependence’ it’s causing. Diabetes Drug Free since 2009 Insulin Free since 2009 Diabetes Services free since 2009 […]

Independence Day … from drugs?

Not just for diabetics but for all of us, the greatest obstacle to living a long and healthy life? The medical industry. The medical industry, including doctors, nutritionist and diabetes educators cause so much harm… every damn day. When it comes to diabetes care – you must question everything. Initials […]
