Some days ago I shared with you all that I had lost weight. To date, I have lost a total of 30lbs., gone down 4 dress sizes and would like to share what I have learned so far as far as maintaining BS normal and lose weight. I would like others to benefit from what I will share now. I take Vanadyl Sulfate and Alpha Lipoic Acid to keep my BS normal instead of my medicine. I was taking Glyburide and made me feel crappy! Was getting the shakes ALL the time and my sugar would go as low as 48. My heartbeat was really pounding and fast!! Horrible feeling. Did some research and found out that these two supplements aided in lowering BS. As far as exercise, I walk everyday for 1 hr. in fast and slow intervals. Walk fast for 30 seconds and slow down for 30 seconds for 30 minutes. The rest of the 30 minutes I walk at a normal pace; not too fast or slow. Diet wise, I have cut back on breads and eat lots and lots of veggies. I find that snacking on raw nuts such as almonds and veggies such as radishes, celery, cabbage (red and green) make me feel good and my BS remains normal. I have "invented" recipes for myself. I make my own hummus and it's Delish!!! Organic foods are awesome, the best! I discovered that my local Hostess Outlet store carries these products and are so affordable!!! I get my apple and cinammon granola (low carbs)I add this to my nonfat plain yogurt w/few drops of Stevia, Wheat flour, Wheat flour for pastries, Raw nuts, Stonegound Oats. Last and most important, everyone knows this I am sure, Drink lots and lots of water. I drink 1 liter a day. I hope this bit of info. will help anyone of you towards feeling better, healthier and happier. If you would like more info. on where I obtained my info. just read the book "Reversing Diabetes" by Dr. Julian Whitaker. His institution is in Newport Beach, CA. It's not a "cure" book, more like an assistance book. Check it out! God Bless You All!!
