The good health news just keeps rolling in.
Diabetes: My blood sugars are mostly normal, except for high morning readings. Low carb diets actually tend to raise morning readings, so I am not too concerned about it. I am still taking Metformin, but after I lose another 40 or so pounds, I will start to wean myself off of that drug as well.
High Blood Pressure: My blood pressure is normal now, and has been for quite a while.
Sleeping: My sleep habits have greatly improved, as I mentioned in a recent post.
Fasting: Fasting is a joy, and I am often on the road, which means I sometimes have to miss a meal. No problem on a low carb diet. This has greatly added to my spiritual life and I feel great when I fast.
General Health: I have a lot more energy during the day. I am not as tired as I used to be and I feel great. My patriarchal blessing promised me I would live to an old age, but I thought I short circuited that blessing by getting diabetes. Now I feel so good I will probably outlive my wife and live to see the promise given in my blessing.
Thank you, Gary Taubes, for introducing me to the low carb lifestyle.
