What u recommend to do a hundred mile day biking for charity, clearly I'll have to prep in advance. Everybody has their own plan; As a well conditioned athlete, Carl Lewis ate pasta the previous evening, and before the meet, peanut butter on bread, and a banana. The bread gives instant energy, then...

excess protein in my bean dish!

When i mostly eliminated meats a year ago, i selected beans with the most protein to be sure i got enough. I overdid it; kidney beans are 51% cal from protein :shock: black beans not so bad 28% and lintels 30%. A symptom i had was smelly urine as i found out excess protein is excreted. My other 2 me...

So, i've learned more about how the body works, and overnight, after the glucose is used up, it switches to fat, so my 7% fat diet goes out the window :roll: So...

Diabetes T2 is FAT OVERLOAD- name change needed!

If they changed the name to reflect the cause, everybody would have a better chance of correcting their diet. :bigthumb: The test for FAT OVERLOAD is to see if the cells are eating enough glucose by doing various blood sugar tests. If the cells are clogged with fat, the tests show high glucose. High...

How you get diabetes- tyoe 2

Blood test says high fasting glucose. glucose is sugar. People think "i better not eat carbs, as they turn right into glucose" Carbs do turn into glucose, but avoiding carbs is not a cure. The body uses glucose as its #1 fuel. The brain uses glucose only. Glucose is high because it can't get into th...

food that cures diabetes T2 in 1 week

PB is out, but peanuts are not too bad, as studies show that most of the fat ends up in the toilet, since chewing is not as "good" as a PB factory grinder. They add an unknown amount of oil and sugar. It is unknown because they keep it in the same proportion as peanuts. Sneaky. Could be 1/3 oil, wh...

Re: Window AC converted to central, pics of temporary duct( page 6).....90F performance update June 4

Only 2 days at 90F so far, and both tests ended late afternoon due to T-storms.

So this was my mistake, i looked at the PB label: portion 32g, 180 calories. fat 15g - so i was thinking, wow, 47% fat, but way better than oil, 100% fat. BUT, fat is 9 calories per gram, vs. 4 for protein or carbs. So, 9x15-135 calories from fat, 75% :oops: So i won't be using up the 2 jars i have ...

Re: Can a 48V motor controller work with 36V?

years ago i ran a 24v controller on a 12v sla by hooking 8 aa cells in series with the key switch, so the logic circuit saw 24v, so the low voltage cut off would not kick in. worked fine.
