Better breakfast?

So i'm not real pleased with the way wheat flour is processed in the US. It is BLEACHED with a chemical. Does not sound healthy, but it may or may not be unhealthy. The EU does not allow bleaching, so this raises a red flag for me. Stores do sell more expensive unbleached flour, so this is another r...

I freed a 4 inch Dragonfly that got its neck stuck in a split frond

So i was trimming the fronds of a palm tree, and i thought a freak accident had killed it. Appears that when it landed it got its neck pinched, and it slid down the split, almost a foot, so it could not figure how to escape. I picked it up and it was alive :shock: so i set it right back down, and it...

Re: increasing pedal range by eating healthy food-p11 range up 260+%- if there is a fountain of youth, i found it!

I'm not aware of any vegan populations anywhere in the world. I would be quite surprised if any areas in china are or were vegan. The blue zones are not vegan either. I eat sardines 2x a month and will gladly eat turkey in Nov. So i'm not a vegan. I was duped by school into thinking i had to eat mea...

Nep
Do a real world test for diabetes T2. Leave your battery pack at home and make sure you can pedal 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Don't worry if your speed is down, that is normal.

At first i eliminated potatoes, sweet p, rice, bread, pasta, and fruit. Then i did gradual testing of each food. I'd buy 1 sweet potato and slice off 4 oz for a test. After a month with no ill effects, i went up to 5-6 oz for 2 mos. Anyway a YEAR later i eat about 8 oz at lunch WITH 5 oz of reg pota...

Re: Baked my own, experimental NO FAT CHIPS and added ground flax!

FIRST time 100% NO stick to baking sheets :bigthumb: added just 1/2 tablespoon flax seed that i grind, to 2 cups of flour. So there is a tiny bit of fat from the flax, BUT mostly omega 3, the GOOD kind of necessary fat. Omega 3 is well known for reducing inflammation. Perfecting my baking method: Bo...

The reason glucose was high in my blood, is that it could not enter my muscle cells, due to FAT clogging up the works. Now i feel great, and...

Re: The 2 types of type 2 diabetes explained and how to reverse - page 3 and scientific studies prove it!

Interesting comments. I do have 1 idea on why seemingly opposite foods can reverse diabetes T2. Pretend you are a single cell anywhere in your body. You have a job to do, part of a team. Your reward is the FOOD! So when things go wrong, like diabetes, and there is a MAJOR change in the food, it gets...

Re: The 2 types of type 2 diabetes explained and how to reverse - page 3 and scientific studies prove it!

There is no science to support a fat-based hypothesis towards T2 diabetes. Lots of science to support carbohydrates as the cause. Likewise there are no well controlled studies which support the theory that dietary fats have any effect on triglycerides. However carbohydrates are absolutely tied into...

Re: The 2 types of type 2 diabetes explained and how to reverse - page 3 and scientific studies prove it!

Leftie i agree excess sugar can be the cause, The thing about table sugar is half is fructose, which the liver converts to triglycerides, which is a type of fat. So i still think it is the fat that clogs muscles, veins, etc. Myself, i was down to 1 teaspoon a day for over a year, so it looks like i'...

So here i'm defining T2 diabetes in plain english. Not late stage where you go blind and have limbs amputated etc. but EARLY stage. Much is written about late stage, as doctors salivate at the prospects of making huge money as they "save your life" :roll: EARLY STAGE ( much from personal experience,...

Made another batch of no fat chips :thumb: this time i put both sheets on the lowest rack, very close to the element :twisted: 5 min on 5 off and 5 on. this cut 2 minutes off the on time. Started to brown, so next i'll try 5/5/4/?/? Taste very good, w/salt, but still lost 10% stuck like epoxy :oops:...
