Mainstream Diabetes Nonsense!

On our local news today they had a diabetes expert on to talk about how to reduce your risk of getting type 2 diabetes. This gut was a medical doctor who works in a specialized diabetes clinic at a local hospital.

His advice? He said you should exercise more, yawn. Yeah, yeah, we're a bunch of lazy fucks who don't move enough. We all know that. Don't expect that to change anytime soon. But he continued (and it got worse). Then he says, you should eat fewer calories and to do that you should lower your fat intake.

That's it. Here is a doctor who advises people on diabetes, probably on a daily basis, and this is his advice. What's wrong with this picture? He mentioned nothing about the sacred cow of the food industry, carbs. Not one word!

Blood sugar drives insulin, carbs drive blood sugar, so the simplest, most effective thing you can do to reduce your risk of developing type 2 diabetes is reduce your carb intake. Period. It really is that simple.

I've seen people who have gone off their diabetes medicine simply by adopting a low carb lifestyle. Surely the good ole doc knows this approach works. But not a word about it. Either he's a well educated idiot or he's being a good boy and following the dogma of the various three letter medical associations. Either way, it just isn't right!

Health care reform? You bet. Start by getting rid of doctors who dispense bad advice.

Still Kicking. WT - 242


Breakfast Buffet - 4 fried eggs, scrambled egs, 4 sausage links, load of bacon

Cookout - 2 hamburgers, a couple of brats and hot dogs.

Ate poorly the evening of June 8. That was the last time. I've eaten solid low carb since then but the scale isn't moving. Oh well, I feel good so I'll keep at it, maybe tweak it here and there and let it happen. It will happen. It being fat loss.

I'm going to stop counting up my soda intake. I've decided I'm not going to give it up. I tend to have 1-2 Diet Rite sodas a day. Although I'll be drinking more diet Dr Pepper this summer because they are giving away 23 Camaros in a summer promotion and I want a chance at one. I'm also going to continue drinking my 2 cups of coffee every day.

On a side note. The Detroit Red Wings are in the Stanly Cup Finals again and looking pretty good. They are playing the Penguins again this year, who happen to be my brothers favorite team. The Wings are up 2 games to 1. Game four is tonight.
