“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
Gautama Siddharta, 563-483 B.C.
Let’s Watch The Labels
No, this is not a post to encourage you to check the labels on food you purchase or consume. This is about something that has been going through my mind for a while. It bothered me when I visited my doctor. In response to my improved blood sugar control he said, “You’re still a diabetic”.
No More Insulin!
As mentioned in my last blog I had my quarterly date with my doctor and diabetic nurse this week. After five weeks on a slow carb diet I am successfully controlling my blood sugar without insulin injections. My blood work also showed a significant decrease in LDL, and my blood pressure had dropped by 20 points since my last appointment.
Start Your Day Right
One of the keys for me to lose weight during the last few weeks has been having the discipline not to overeat. A key for controlling my blood sugar is to measure how many carbs I eat in a meal. For the last six weeks I have eaten the same thing for breakfast every morning.
