My life has really changed since I first started this diet way back in January of this year. I've lost over 30 pounds, I can tie my shoes now, I can easily bend, not just because I lost weight but because I no longer have the pain I used to have. I never slept well in the last four years, now I can sleep nearly all through the night, I wake up refreshed and I make it all through the day without having a huge slump later in the day. The fibromialgia which settles mostly in my damaged neck and shoulder area, has really loosened to the point where moving my head doesn't cause extreme pain.
I'm also not suffering the all the hot flashes I used to have, Yes I feel the occasional heat rising, but not the back-to-back floods of sweat I used to have. Of course summer hasn't really hit yet...
what's changed? Well I'm eating a diet that is high in vegetables and devoid, nearly in red meats.
I'm eating lots more fiber, much less fats of the 'bad' variety, very little grain foods and I'm on an alkalizing diet.
Result: my blood sugar levels are so much lower than they used to be. Last November from highs of 366 and frequent 290's averaged about 261. Lately my average from a high of 152 to a low of 87 in the last three weeks averaging at 119.5 means my blood sugar readings are down an average of 141 points.
What am I doing or have done differently? First I've learned so much about the disease and I know how to control my blood sugar just by eating the proper foods, and also I've done some very effective cleanses, and I'm taking coconut oil and psyllium fiber AND Alpha Lipoic Acid, which lowers the blood glucose levels.
also I'm taking cell power
Also I've been working on the Candida, first with candidate-to Eliminate excessive Candida overgrowth in the digestive tract then by adding back the proper flora in my system; Suprema Dophilus probiotic.

A woman rushed to see her doctor, looking very worried and all strung out. She says, "Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were bloodshot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What's WRONG with me, Doctor!?"
The doctor looked her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly said: "Well, I can tell you that there's nothing wrong with your eyesight."
The last time somebody said, 'I find I can write
much better with a word processor.', I replied,
'They used to say the same thing about drugs.'
