  1. Allergic reaction to a tiny T2D pill saw me eat nothing for 3 weeks, then only broke the fast on what I didn’t know was #lchf. Carbs literally makes me sick. It’s poison.

  2. Yes, indeed. So much of our health care dollars could be reduced if people would accept the science based facts that carbs/sugar, etc., cause inflammation … and it’s the inflammatory process that underlies soooo many disease processes. Not that carbs becoming anathema would fix all ills, but it’d sure make an impact. But we sound-bite news addicts believe whatever ‘they’ say.

    And, oh my, you’d never sell low carb in the Italian community where I live. Pasta, bread … and then of course, pasta, bread, and … more bread … and more pasta.

    Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE pasta and bread (as a matter of fact, I’d rather have warm Italian bread and butter over sweets for dessert any day), but I also know that I become almost crippled (no exaggeration) with stiffness when I eat carbs for long periods. It miraculously stops when I eat (boring) keto. There are so many ways you can disguise cauliflower, but hey, I like being able to climb the stairs.

    Sorry for the diatribe. An ex smoker can be insufferable. Ex carbs addicts can be obnoxious too ads I have just illustrated, eh? My apologies to carb lovers everywhere. (If it’s any consolation, I will self-report that I still get as close as I can and smell the Italian food and warm bread whenever I can. LOL)

  3. Hey, thanks for the video recommendation. Through these years of understanding what to eat and what not to stay healthy, I have learnt that all of us just need to follow a few simple rules
    1. Don’t eat anything made form of refined white flour
    2. Keep away from white sugar
    3. Stay away from carbonated drinks

    I follow these rules as much as I can and it really works as I had lost around 25kgs and got back in good health when I was in my college days.

  4. At an anatomy class a long time ago, my professor speculated that fake sugars gave rise to adult-onset diabetic. It’s organ exhaustion similar to running your garbage disposal with a fake garbage. Sooner or later it will break. Unfortunately, I was interested enough in the idea to pursue it. Make me wonder if there are research out there supporting that professor’s opinion.

  5. Of course. Everything is about healthy food habits. My son with type 1 Diabetes has decrease his amount of insulin thanks to his vegan diet, so a person with Type 2 Diabetes with a healthy diet and healthy routines can definitely have a normal life without tablets and insulin.
