Activities

My personal activities, successfully self managing my diabetes.


People have been critical of me posting against Fung in "Fung I". I have been accused of nitpicking. This brief post provides the reason why? ... 'because He is HARMING people'. If your mother, brother, sister or daughter was receiving such harmful advice from a 'diabetes educator' ... we would all be ranting about the ridiculous advice. And I am now.

What the FUNG?


This post is a critique of the advice I have read and heard by a so called ‘low carb diabetes expert’, Jason Fung.  I’m writing this post to alert people to the fallacies, half-truths and potentially harmful advice Jason Fung has given. Fung wrongly demonizes exogenous (injected) insulin Fung trivializes […]

Fung-us Among Us



I was once an obese, drug and insulin dependent diabetic. Now I am THRIVING and attempting to live life at it’s fullest… on a ‘low carb paleo’ style meal plan and lifestyle.

Very Primal Easter


Blood sugars are THE single most important health number for diabetics, IF you eat like me... mainly fatty meats, leafy green vegetables, eggs, coconut oil and butter...

Day in a Diabetic Thriving Life



So, please, now is your golden opportunity to realize that overstretching your rubber band WILL make it break. You, only YOU, have the power to PREVENT the end-result diagnosis of diabetes.

Prediabetes vs Diabetes




I won my case against the NC Board of Dietetics and Nutrition!!! Thanks to IJ and all of YOU! I can say what I want ... and I am UNLEASHED! :)

I Fought the Law and I WON!


Ten years ago I was an obese, miserable, chronically sick ... Big Food, Big Pharma and Medical Industry Cash Cow. Today ... I am in great health, normal weight, normal blood pressure and I am successfully managing my diabetes! TODAY I THRIVE!!! ... and not just survive.

Diabetes Eve




Since I began taking the fibers and probiotics on 12/11/2014 my overnight fasting blood sugars have averaged 75 mg/dl. My only numbers above 80 this year were an 82 and 83 on the 2nd and 3rd of January. :) :)

Diabetes Experiments Update: Mr. 59 :)



This post is largely a pictorial of this past Christmas weekend spent at Wrightsville Beach, NC ... just outside of Wilmington. Pictures of sunrises, blood sugars and beach... and thanks to my father for the trip! :) I will give two short story summaries. Conversations I had with a few people that I tried to help.

Christmas Weekend In Wilmington


In their stupidity, North Carolina's State Board of DIEtetic and Nutrition decided that I was in violation of state law when I actually helped people control their blood sugars.

Media Coverage of Steve



I do believe that my gut is healthy... why? I am healthy. I maintain normal blood sugars and I am rarely sick. HOWEVER: 1) I could be wrong, I know... shocking isn't it. :) 2) Even if my gut is healthy, that doesn't mean it could not be improved upon.

Fiber and Diabetes


the information at the support group was a little better than some. However the conflicting advice had to leave many diabetics scratching their heads and wondering what the hell they should eat.

My Visit with a Diabetes Support Group



Are you addicted to sugar, grains or sweeteners? Maybe you say you are not addicted … but can you stop? Prove it. Take the challenge! Are you still addicted to sugar or grain-based products? Are you still addicted to artificial sweeteners?   Take the challenge! Be sugar, grain and sweetener… FREE! […]

Addictions Including Sweeteners Take the Challenge.


EVERYTHING we do is an experiment. Everything. YOU are the results of all that you have done up to this point. I urge you to pay attention to your experiment and try to improve your blood sugars, your health and your fitness. You will be glad you did. :)

Another Experiment – Exercise And Diabetes




We are all experiments! Which reminds me of this quote by Eric Savage of MythBusters. "Remember kids, the only difference between screwing around and science... is writing it down." At least in the eyes of Eric Savage, through the years I've done a lot of science. I guess that makes me a ... scientist ... :)

Science, Personal Experiment: Intense X



After my Diabetes Diagnosis ... I started doing what I could do comfortably, and tried to do a little more each day. When I first began doing push ups ... I could only do 7 in a row.
