Carb Crunch

Posted by Elaine1 in Blog Elaine1, 19 February 2014 · 101 views

If the title sounds yummy, like a crunchy granola bar, sorry. What I mean by "crunch" is, like,
a numbers crunch, crunching the carbs - making 'em lower.

One member said they keep their carbs to under 50 per day. I think that is terrific.
It's my goal, too. Yes, it's hard. But well worth the effort. Those bad numbers turn into
good numbers with each pas...

Mine boyfriend likes curvy girls...and that means usually plus sized, but definate shape...weight is less important than curves. Well, now that I am losing we...

What was your postmeal reading (and how long after)?

Posted by Bee in Blog Bee, 09 November 2013 · 42 views

I was pleasantly surprised by the post-meal readings tbh. I checked again before driving - that would have been 3.5 hours post meal and was 5.6 so that seems okay to me. Was going to work so was actually a tad too low, will need to have a wee snack sometime soon as I'm working overnight :)

New Opportunity

Posted by MCS in Blog MCS, 23 October 2013 · 49 views

At the request of my doctor I have begun a new business. Diabetic Health Coaching. My doctor wanted some place he could send his patient's to that could help them understand what is happening to their body. 15 minutes of doctor time is not much when trying to acquire the knowledge it takes to control ones blood glucose levels. I am self employed and ow...

Gardening

Posted by Kenton in Blog Kenton, 22 June 2013 · 22 views

Fungal infections and Florida seem to go hand in hand and I try to not use toxic stuff on food plants.
I found Actinovate works very very well and organic gardening control of the assorted fungal diseases.
It's a bacteria powder you mix with water and spray the plants with. A 2 oz packet last me all year as a little goes a long way.
And as a bonus it seem...

So its my first time writing a blog. I think this will be really good for me though. As some of you know a lot has happened in the past 6 months. I had quadruple bypass and I am now a little over 5 months out and feeling good. I will finally be starting my cardiac rehab which should be interesting and fun at the same time. Will be good to get back into a...

My Committment

Posted by Richard157 in Blog Richard157, 07 March 2012 · 31 views

COMMITTMENT

In the 1945-1988 years I had only one rule to follow. Don't eat foods containing sugar. My doctors never mentioned carbs. I was very committed to following that rule. I became so used to using artificial sweeteners, that a teensy taste of something containing a lot of sugar was too sweet, and I did not like it. Having only one rule to follow...
