I have alluded to a research study that I had the opportunity to participate in. I haven't blogged much during the study because I was busy collecting data and I wanted to finish everything before posting. I won't give away too many details yet, but I was able to wear a Continuous Glucose Monitor for … Continue reading Coming Soon – Study Results
The weekend was challenging, but I started to get back on track, as best I could, given my plans. I guess I technically didn't have to eat that Movie Theatre Popcorn over the weekend; regardless, I've had three "good" days in a row (good meaning less than 50g of net carbs). My weight has recovered, … Continue reading Back in Control… Somewhat
Thursday was my 44th birthday and it ended up being a three-day, poor-eating marathon. That was after starting this 90-days struggling nutritionally. My blood pressure has also gone up. I haven't isolated the problem yet, but my suspicion is that it's because I started DHEA supplements again. I just can't say that with any certainty … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me
I am so pleased with my three month progress! It's amazing how much improvement I've seen in such a short amount of time. I'm certainly not where I want to be, but I've done enough to stay motivated my next 90-days!! Two blogs posted in one day - this is a new record!! I had … Continue reading Three Months!!
Okay, here goes... I am going to post things that I never thought I would about myself. Hahaha, just not the pictures. I may share those on my Facebook group, but I still have to work up that courage! For full disclosure, the data presented below come from the following days of this process: Initial … Continue reading One Month Numbers
I have struggled with situational high blood pressure that can periodically become the status quo. I have always had high cholesterol, but I never considered type 2 diabetes because blood sugar isn’t something I struggle with. I assumed my blood pressure was due to stress and my cholesterol, hereditary. Never did I think any of my … Continue reading Metabolic Triad – Insulin, Who Knew…
Wanted to share my 2019 plans publicly for accountability and to encourage community. I've also shared it with my tiny Facebook group, encouraging them to join me. Here’s the basics. I’ll start with the part that some people may have issue with - fasting. For more information, I recommend “The Complete Guide to Fasting” by … Continue reading 2019 Plan – Starting Soon on a Blog Near You!
RIP Date: 3/1/2017 I previously felt that protein bars were healthy; like even diet-worthy. I ate a variety of them, but my favorites were the Zone Perfect Chocolate Peanut Butter bars. Other ones I ate regularly were Nature's Valley Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate bars and Fiber One Peanut Butter bars. Are you sensing a theme here? I've … Continue reading Black-Listed Food: Protein Bars
I posted a graph each of the past two days. When looking at them together, it appears they are inversely related. So, I plotted the y-axis of each graph against each other (also adding the most recent data). I recognize the limitations of this plot. The weight range plotted on the y-axis only spans 5.4 … Continue reading Random Graph…
The morning of day 4 after my eating experiment ended... I think I'm mostly back to normal... My hips still hurt today, to the touch, which is weird. Perhaps the physical therapy on Monday was more than my body was ready to handle. My sleep is still affected, but it's getting better. Over the last … Continue reading Clean Eating Restores Equilibrium
