[QUOTE=TorMag;949302]Day 15 Blood Sugar Solution
Morning BS was 138, really happy, two days in a row that my morning BS has been in the 130's. I can't began to tell you how excited I am about this. I have not had sugars like this since I became Primal and took myself of insulin. Would be nice to be able to isolate what exactly was the change that made the sugars come down. Here is the list of what I am doing different.
1. [B]No starches, this means no sweet potatoes or rice that I was eating.[/B] Those were occasionally.
2. [B]No fruit.[/B] This could be the one, I was eating fruit. Apples and strawberries were at the top of the list. Not a lot, of fruit, but enough.
3. No Caffeine
4. No Diary. I am cheating a little here. I am having a cup of Crio Bru in the mornings with a little bit of heavy whipping cream and I still use butter to fry my eggs. So diary might not be the problem, as this has not changed from what I was doing before.
5. Taking all the supplements.[/QUOTE]I think giving up the "safe" starches and the fruit is the key. I really don't think hwc or butter have enough milk solids involved to make any impact. Chugging milk would be different. I'm glad you are dumping the caffeine. I don't know what effect if any it has on blood sugar, but it's overall just not doing your body any good long term.
[QUOTE=TorMag;951314]Doing a happy dance, got on the scale today. I only weigh myself once a week and at work because we have a "Dr." scale in the gym in the building. I had not weighed myself since starting the Blood sugar solution. I have dropped 6 more lbs and just broke the 100 pound loss mark. HAPPY DANCE!!!!!!!!!![/QUOTE]Happy dancing with you Tormag!! Congratulations.
[QUOTE=KimT;951623]WOOHOO!!!!! Fantastic progress on the weight and blood sugar! Keep up the great work![/QUOTE]
Couldn't agree more.
Thanks everyone for your support. I know I keep saying that, but it means a lot to me. Every time I think about the Dr. telling me I "had ten years left to live and the last 5 were going to be miserable", and then I get the support for my online friends, it just make everything I am doing and going through much better.
Day 18 Blood Sugar Solution
Morning BS = 158
Breakfast = Ultra smoothie
Lunch = Bowl of chili and LAS
Dinner = Steak, steamed veggies and a LAS

I was feeling a little ill before dinner so I took my BS, it was down to 109.... Not used to my BS being that low, felt light headed.
Tormag, you are doing great & congrats on beating the first 100 lbs!
Day 19 Blood Sugar Solution
Morning BS was 127, yeah that is considered in the normal range. Got to be happy with that. Odd night sleeping, all sorts of weird dreams.... It is funny, when I prick the finger in the moring to take my BS, the three weeks ago the blood reminded me of Red Karro syrup, now it flows out of the finger like water.....
BTW, I am in a really frigging good mood today!!!!! Happy Friday.
Morning BS = 127
Breakfast = Ultra Smoothie
Exercise = Walked 30 minutes with my beautiful wife.
Happy Friday, gods, that's some awesome journey in three weeks from considering going on insulin again to seeing normal blood sugar readings.

I know. Thank you so much Leida, I owe it all to you. Thanks again for recommending Dr. Hyman's book. If I didn't already have a first born, I would name her after you.......
Lol! I am keeping fingers crossed that the Hyman's recommendations will continue to improve your health. And, you know, it doesn't mean you won't be doing things differently when the situation changes.
I was wondering if you are allowing legumes in or keeping them out to align Hyman with Primal?

I was keeping them out. I aligned Hyman with Primal. Primal First.....
