29 M 10

It's going really really great since my last post. Not overeating at meals and not overeating on any one thing during the meal, and keeping it darn close to ultra simple. I have pretty much been 92 the whole time and not needing shots, with very little exercise and zero deprivation.

So a few days is easy; we'll see how it is, long term.

Hah. Later tonight I sort a pigged but only took 7 units instead of 15 or whatever.

So What Happened This Winter?

I don't know.

I went through about 3 vials of humalog. I cannot say anything about it but that I am going to try again next Winter to avoid conditions that cause me to require it.

Nuts probably have plenty to do with it. I'm a nut nut. I eat too many. They are usually too fancy for me in my condition.

Nothing New but Worth Plugging Again

I plowed snow with Rick. Rick said he was always hungry. He depended on Fast Food to satisfy and fuel, with an occasional shot of vitamin power liquid. He would have to stop regularly and get some more Fast Food. Sometimes, I did the same. It did about as good a job for me as it did Rick.

This blog is essentially about why Rick is always hungry. Madison Ave, the McDonalds, etc., have brainwashed the Americans into thinking they like certain commercially prepared "foods" that have precious little nutrition or proper pH balance. For example, cold cereal is packed with vitamins of highly questionable absorbability and effectiveness and are acid forming in the body - not a good idea for the main part of a meal. They are selling them as wholesome whole grains but ignore the fact that they are not sprouted and are therefore acid forming, with the exception of millet, which they do not use much.

Incidentally, while I was having my perfect day yesterday, guess what the rest of my family ate (another part of this blog is about how tough it is to eat in your chosen paradigm while those you live with choose another) for dinner?

Store-bought, white garlic toast.

Read The Whole Thing Recommended

I get comments and anxious warnings from folks who read part of my blog and who have a year or two or less experience with diabetes, be it first hand or second (e.g., "my grandpa had it").

This does not upset me or injure my pride but it points out the need to recommend that one read my entire blog and not just skim through to get the gist.

If you got the gist, you would know that:

-I've been at this for 14 years (again, not proud, just trying to enlighten) and I know all the diabetes foundation information, cautions, etc.

-Yes, I test my blood sugar

-Yes, it is extremely rare that my sugar goes above 120 without me being able to distinctively feel it and know about it - without testing

-When my sugar goes above 120-140 I totally feel like crap; I generally keep it below that

-I am not dieting, not hungry, not weak; I am a happy camper - especially when ultra and not using insulin

-It's not about controlling blood sugar level, but giving the body adequate nutrition exclusively to allow diabetes to regress, be it Type I or II.

Most people who've had it as long as me have given up tight control and are in trouble, so why be concerned about me, a guy who is under control and enjoying good health because of it? My doctor stated that he had 100's of diabetes patients and that I was the only one who did what he was supposed to. My friends who have it are a testament to this. Again, am I boasting? No, because I do not look down on them. I KNOW HOW TOUGH IT IS. IT TOOK ME YEARS BUT AS TIME GOES ON, IT GETS EASIER FOR ME. I am not boasting, I am sending out a message. A wake-up call.

Similar to the way mainstream medical literature 20 years ago stated cartilage in humans could not regenerate, but now the same states that it can, mainstream medical thought today is that there is no cure as yet for Type I diabetes - only because mainstream medical data comes from us the people and virtually none of us have tried getting totally away from the American food scam.

It's hard for virtually all of us to think about eating for any extended length of time the way I prescribe here. It's unthinkable. But weigh that thought against the cancer, arthritis and diabetes epidemic (explosion) in this country occurring today, and then some of you will begin to see that thinking about it may be the right thing.

If you don't know what explosion I'm talking about, here's some light on it: Up until 16 years ago, I knew no one personally who had any kind of diabetes. Now it seems like everyone is getting it. I cannot count the people I know personally with it. I run into them everywhere, and they are getting it at a younger age as time goes on. Yet no one seems concerned. Are they afraid to acknowledge there is something very wrong and an explosion is happening because it means they will have to consider eating like me? Or even a little more like me?

When you do think about it, ask this: "Do I want to give up all the familiar favorites and habits for something different yet more enjoyable and on top of that, feel super all the time until I die?" You may answer yes, but then the trick and the kicker is to be able to remember WHY when those you spend time with are sitting there eating one of your old favorites. You don't always have it all clear in your mind, and those old imprinted impulses are powerful when triggered. So you try and fail, try and fail, until you begin to get the hang of it through repetition - enough that you begin to realize and remember even during the impulses the worth over the cost of feeling super.

2 big keys to feeling super: 1-nutrify 2-don't overeat - ever.

And as this blog started out to explain, the simpler the food, the easier 1 & 2 are to do.

Today's perfect breakfast was sprouted spelt and barley, and celery - both organic.

Wednesday, March 24, 2010


..for breakfast I had wheat grass.

For brunch, a little carrot/wheatgrass juice and sunflower seeds.

For lunch, cold roast beef and raw asparagus.

For supper, sprouted spelt and barley, collards, cheese (not raw, unfortunately, but good anyway), a little milk, cooked beans and salsa and raw sprouted millet.

All raw unless otherwise specified. Finished eating at 8:00. No insulin today. Nor hunger.

I restarted not too many posts back, but have been eating rather poorly since. I have been using a lot of insulin (compared to 0-2 units) - about 30 units per day, roughly. That is, right up until the night before last. It just got to the point where I couldn't even tell whether I was high or low and my insides and feet were feeling fried and with a bit of neuropathy and rash thrown in. So I went ultra on my diet again. Felt better right away and have used less than 6 units per day.

So for the last two days, I have been mainly eating sprouted spelt/barley, sunflower seeds, beef, celery, asparagus, carrot, rutebaga and cooked beans with raw sprouted millet.

I also had some eggs, mushrooms, onions, cheese, peanut butter, cream, milk.

A carrot and sunflower seed power breakfast is good.
