Activities

My personal activities, successfully self managing my diabetes.


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


Diabetes Educators and the Medical Industry do not promote 'self-management'... stating such is LUDICROUS! The medical industry promotes using a 'diabetes care team', all of whom get their 'cut' from public and private insurances. They all combine to make diabetes self-treatment impossible by promoting a blood-sugar-elevating diet.

Ed’s Bill: Government Controlling Diabetes Speech



Dietitian, nutritionist and diabetes educator groups are on the front line of this battle. As more people realize the dietary guidance from them is a sham ... the less people will pay for their services.

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



I look to our distant past to see if there are ways I can live closer to how we were designed to live, but I test everything against my blood sugar levels. Normal blood sugar levels are the key to THRIVING with diabetes, not living according to some dogmatic fantasy reconstruction.

It’s an excellent resource for reducing blood sugars as well as regaining control of your health. I only wish it had been available when I began my journey — a must read for all!

Karen Gale: Summary Story




When I arrived, the sun was not visible due to cloud cover. Then suddenly, the clouds gloriously parted and the sun was visible over the horizon. I watched intently as the sun began to climb the sky over the Atlantic. A glowing, golden orange ball in the sky. It's reflection colored the water and the waves that broke in its light ...a TRULY surreal scene.

Folly Beach – Day Three



From sun rise to past sunset, we keep on the move when we are at the beach! As I noted earlier, I had no energy shortage and was able to keep up with my sons throughout the day. 

Folly Beach – Day Two


A successful day in every way. I ate clean, I played and spent quality time with my sons. Day 2 and Day 3 are the days the Folly Beach area really shines, so make sure to check out these future posts!

Folly Beach 2015 – Day One



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!

Question: Why doesn't the American Diabetes Association or the American Association of Diabetes Educators promote fasting as a means to reduce blood sugars? I think we know... Greed, intellectual laziness, willful ignorance or all of the above.

2015 Fasting Summary



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



I am reminded of my personal independence, the independence from drugs and insulin. I want to talk about not only my 'freedoms from' but also my 'freedoms to'.

Freedom From & Freedom To


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.

Did you hear? The national dietitians admit they were wrong and caused untold suffering to millions with harmful dietary advice! You didn’t hear that? Well, they didn’t exactly say those words…
