A Little History Lesson
- I ensured that I included some beans into my diet several days per week. I was already accustomed to eating beans and my system has now grown accustomed to beans and so I am spared some of the discomforts some people experience when they eat beans.
- Initially, I reduced my meat intake, now I reduced it even more and I told myself this was for awhile. Let me add, I love meat and so for me, this is a big move, but I hate being diabetic more than I love meat and so I was willing to give it a try. He prefers if we don’t eat meat. I am not sure about doing this full time. Sorry, I still use a little meat 3 times per week to flavor my soups and to satisfy my appetite.
And, The Results are Here
By the second day of following some of what was written in the book, I was amazed at my readings. I had a 6.3 blood glucose reading the following day and this was without medication the night before. Note, I am accustomed to this reading when taking some of my medication. That second day, my readings remained in the 5.5 to 6.3 range and this was without medication. Needless to say, I was excited.
That night I did not take my medication because I was afraid that my blood glucose could fall too low in my sleep. I was getting a 5.5 reading before going to bed. I, however, had a glass of mango leaf water before going to bed.
The following morning, my reading without medication was 5.8 and I was now sold on this way of eating. I also like the fact that I can eat meat 0 to 3 times per week. I am sure the zero time per week will not be me. Sorry folks, I still love my beef soup and chicken breast. I am now learning to use 1 pound of beef to make a huge pot of soup, so I use it for flavoring.
More History and Weight Loss
There is a lot of emphasis on weight loss. Truth be told, eating this way encourages weight loss. In one (1) week, I lost 5 pounds. I must admit, I had some issues following the program at times. I wanted meat in my first few days. I was not as prepared and so I felt like I was eating the same foods for the entire week. I now have some things in place and so I am expecting a better second week.
I have been trying the recipes at the back and I do appreciate the 2 weeks eating plan. It helps me to plan my meals for the week. There is so much for you to learn from “The Eat to live plan to prevent and reverse diabetes: The end of diabetes” book and hence I am encouraging you to get a copy here from Amazon. I have a lot of information on diabetes, but his has been my best buy to date.
One Size Fits All?
I find the book “Eat to live plan to prevent and reverse diabetes: The end of diabetes” easy to read and I would encourage you to read widely on the subject, speak to your doctor and eventually you will find something, maybe from what a number of experts write and speak about to be a part of your solution. I do not believe in a ‘one size fits all,’ but, I borrow from a number of programs and I am finding a comfortable balance which appears to be working for me.
Would I recommend this book? YES, most certainly. It is true that we consume too much meat and carbohydrate and it is certainly an old debate that we need to eat more vegetables and fruits. This book, “Eat to live plan to prevent and reverse diabetes: The end of diabetes” is a keep.
