Re: Ready to Quit

Re: Ready to Quit

I actually have hated cooking my entire life, Maureen... In my experience this does add another layer to the challenges of our lifestyles. I only enjoy cooking if my life is stress free, but I don't recall the last time that was the case. I do meditate, walk, and the like to help with stress, but i...

Re: Ready to Quit

Wanted to comment on this. I do more weight lifting by keeping my various PT accoutrements on a towel on the living room floor, towel matching the carpet. It may not be everyone's idea of interior decor, but leaving the weights and other things there I am better able to work it in, usually in the m...

Re: Glucose and Insulin Resistance

Yes those numbers are okay so lucky you! You can probably get away with measuring before and one hour later, which is usually around the peak. Thank you, Mike. Sorry for the late response. Been without a laptop for two weeks (in repair) and all of my passwords are stored on it. So I couldn't even a...

Glucose and Insulin Resistance

Hi Super-supportive Community! I have a glucose/insulin resistance/whatever question. I read that, of course, our glucose goes up after a meal, but as long as it doesn't spike up over 30 mg dl. 30 minutes after a meal from pre-meal glucose measurement, that food is probably okay. I think I read it i...

Re: Ready to Quit

My doctor said "If you have a score above your age, we'll talk about what to do." Imagine my surprise as zero calcium plaque in my arteries and a "aardiac age" of 39. I don't expect that to translate to living to 115, but it does tell me that biomarker numbers are not the same a...

Re: Ready to Quit

Just one suggestion: Remember that restaurants are in the service sector! Low carb and keto diets are extremely popular now and in every restaurant where I have asked, and that has been many, I have been able to substitute additional serving of vegetables or a salad in lieu of the starch. The serve...

Re: Ready to Quit

Well, I'm working on insulin (it has been going down, but have 3 pts further before it is optimal) and my A1C is good. No T2D. Have you ever measured your Insulin Resistance? You measure both fasting glucose and fasting insulin and use HOMA to calculate your IR. If your A1c is good, but insulin is ...
