When I began this journey the medical industry claimed diabetes was a debilitating disease with deteriorating health and increasing pain and suffering. Once again… they were wrong. It doesn’t have to be that way
Blood Sugar Test
My personal daily goal: Obtain and maintain truly normal blood sugars. Note: I am content to eat, play and LIVE as I do today… for the rest of my life. But I LOVE to experiment! And if I can help others find a means to improve their insulin sensitivity and improve their blood sugar levels, …
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!!! :)
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.

There is a lesson there, if you are paying attention.
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 … :)
Here is what I did….
Every time I tested my blood sugar I used the ReliOn Micro and the FreeStyle Lite. In most cases I used the ‘same drop of blood’ but in all cases I used the same ‘lancet’ cut location. In other words, after pricking myself a few times I actually had to squeeze more blood out of the same ‘cut’ location.
As part of the update I wanted to let you know, I have three very important dates in my ‘primal life‘. 2/15/2009 – Diabetes Diagnosis, in the hospital after an ambulance ride 2/18/2009 – Day of Hospital Discharge 8/1/2009 – The day I went ‘fully primal’ after reading Mark Sisson’s website MarksDailyApple.com, specifically this post, “Definitive …
