Re: Dr. Klaper- What i wish i learned about nutrition in medical school, and, want less colds? eat garlic, p 17

I sprinkle powdered garlic on soups and bean stews, have not had a cold in years 8) it is very important to add it last, as cooking destroys much of the benefit.

Re: Dr Ekberg HIIT exercise helps Insulin Resistance p 16, How the distribution of fat worsens diabetes, p 17

bigmoose no home glucose tests for blood. urine tests show nothing. I lost decades because Dr's blamed it on genes. So if a Dr says it is genes, i ditch him. Truth is, many genes are switched on/off by diet and lifestyle. If a Dr. does not know this, he/she is not qualified. I told my neighbor :"eve...

....drain upgraded

replaced the temporary 1/4" fish tank hose drain with 1/2". the hose kinked where it made a sharp turn, so this time i used a PVC elbow. i saw an ac repair truck at 4 or 5 neighbors this past year, so i don't mind, especially since my cost was $10 for the hose and .21 for the elbow, so 10.21 total +...

so i put in 1/2 oz of peanut butter instead of the flax. the chips came out great! same effect, no sticking to pan. And, to my surprise they do not smell or taste like PB 8) So PB 75% fat can be used in place of butter 82% fat or flax 45% fat. Good to know since i don't have any oil, margarine or bu...

Re: Peanuts, page 17

Bought a 25 pound box of Roasted Salted Peanuts with shells. $34.65 let's see, if 15# net, how many calories is that? about 170 per oz. so 170x16x15=40,800 if 3500 gains 1#, you can gain 11# if you eat them fast enough. I find that i can slowly gain weight if i eat just 1/2 oz of PB a day. :mrgreen:

Alcohol can lower blood sugar!, Dr Ekberg HIIT exercise, HIIT at end

Came across a warning to those taking a drug called Bydureon. I was curious about this drug as Dr Ekberg said it can increase pancreas insulin output. I'm not sure how bydureon works, but it reduces BG- blood glucose. The warning is to not drink alcohol too, as you can go hypoglycemic, LOW BG. https...

Re: increasing pedal range by eating healthy food-p11, Studies show Insulin Resistance reversed ONLY with weight loss!p

Reducing HDL is a bad thing and going under 40 significantly increases risk factors. 60-90 is ideal. too low could be bad, but recent studies suggest hdl is not a villian. the good range on the data sheet says greater than 40, and since i'm 43, i'm in the green :mrgreen: these are breakdowns of cho...

Re: increasing pedal range by eating healthy food-p11, Studies show Insulin Resistance reversed ONLY with weight loss!p

HDL or LDL is what matters, not total. The foods which are consumed on a clean Keto diet do not raise LDL (the bad stuff). Statins are a horrible idea compared to correcting dietary problems. LDL is 67 how is that? (was 104 before) HDL is 43 was 64 before Never took any statins! changed diet instea...

Re: increasing pedal range by eating healthy food-p11, Studies show Insulin Resistance reversed ONLY with weight loss!p

Dietary fat has no effect on blood cholesterol, so it can't "plug everything up". Also being just barely under the blood sugar levels which qualify as T2d puts you are a huge risk to a variety of diseases. Better to eat so your blood sugars are 50-60% of that. my cholesterol is now 135 (was 196) no...
