A friend let me borrow her Continuous Glucose Monitor and I wore it for several weeks. Except for a spike during intense exercise, my blood sugars were nice and flat.
- my Low Carb Paleo diabetes diet beats the…
- high carb, grain-based diet of the ADA and the medical industry
The “Purveyors of Pain”, the American Diabetes Association, the American Association of Diabetes Educators and the so called Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics … they all push a ‘high carb, grained based” meal plan for diabetics. The medical industry’s diet, ‘cant’ touch’, the data you will see in this post.
When diabetics follow a high carb, grain-based diet they face the harmful and dangerous diabetes ‘roller coaster’, with soaring highs…and crashing lows. The medical industry diets can not TOUCH THIS! ===> “A Meal Plan you can live with“.
Can’t Touch This
I love the MC Hammer song “Cant’ Touch This”… the video is below. Give it a listen while you read the rest of this post.
Just keep in mind, the ADA and the medical industry can’t touch my diabetes diet for reducing and maintaining normal blood sugars.
Continuous Glucose Monitor
The screen shots below are from a “Continuous Glucose Meter”. It shows blood sugar levels continuously, every five minutes.
Below you can see the first 3 hours I used it… is that a thing of beauty??? :) The range was 67 – 78 mg/dl … I’ll take it!
Those first 3 hours were while I was fasting and without any strenuous exercise.
Note: As long as my sensor is in range of the meter it produces a reading. Sometimes I forget, that’s why you see small gaps in the trend line.
A very generous person lent me their Continuous Glucose Monitor.
If you look at the picture (click to enlarge), you may not be able to see the exact numbers (I have a file and I’ll publish it later) but the blood glucose range for those three hours was 67 to 78. (drug and insulin free too)
First Day – Approximately 10:30 am – 4:30pm
Looking at the picture below you can see my blood sugars looking smooth and straight lined initially …
Next you see a climb, guess what that was?
That’s not when I ate a piece of bacon! :)
THE SPIKE came when I achieved a personal record in Maximum Kettlebells Swings! (read about it here) While that is indeed extreme exercise for me notice one thing, the blood sugars never exceeded the dotted line. I know it’s difficult to tell but the actual readings never exceeded 111 mg/dl, the line signifies 120 mg/dl. The lower line is 60 mg/dl.
The key thing for me…. it quickly and gradually fell well back into normal ranges. Kettlebells are a VERY strenuous exercise when attempting to do maximums in 15 mins. I was ELATED when the blood sugars did not exceed 120 mg/dl.
Also of note, I ate boiled eggs, sardines and bacon about an hour after working out… and there was essentially no increase in blood sugar.
The picture below was 5:14 am the next day, the chart represents 2:14 to 5:14 AM, the morning of 4/24. It’s a 3 hour chart.
See the smooth line…
ADA Can’t Touch This
I want to end with the phrase … “can’t touch this!”
If you or someone you know is a Grain-based, high carb advocate, share this post with them and have them send their screen shots to me.
