I am back home in Arizona. It was good to visit my parents in Puerto Rico, but it was challenging to focus on my new lifestyle of eating while there. The delicious food I grew up with was everywhere; the smells, the memories, the visuals… Wow! However, I can say that God was with me, and even though temptations were everywhere, I did not fall into them. 

I can say that I will dance between the Carnivore and the Keto approach to eating. Some people can live well eating the foods created by God: meat, seafood, fruit, and vegetables. However, folks like me, who struggle with Insulin Resistance; must draw a very well-defined line: any carbs and any sugars are our enemies. Fruits must be out of our diets together with potatoes, rice, noodles, etc. It is not complicated! I can still drink my coffee, water, and tea. I can eat a steak by itself seasoned with salt or I can add broccoli if I feel like it. Flexibility is important to be able to adopt this way of eating as a lifestyle and not just a temporary diet. There is a list of vegetables that are very low in carbs that can assist me in this journey,  

  1. Broccoli
  2. Green Beans
  3. Cauliflower
  4. Asparagus
  5. Kale
  6. Brussels Sprouts
  7. Celery
  8. Spinach
  9. Zucchini
  10. Cabbage
  11. Avocado

This must be my life until the Lord comes and, if I stay in this zone, I can say that I overcame diabetes and that’s precisely the plan, not just to normalize my glucose numbers, but to win over diabetes. I pray that I remain through the test of time for the glory of God and for the many others I will be able to help.

My glucose has been normalized for the last 18 days; my general average is now 110. I plan to do blood work in April. As of yesterday, I ceased taking my blood pressure medicine as my blood pressure has been consistently normal. As of today, I ceased taking the only pill I take for diabetes.  This is an important test for me. I tried this before and failed miserably, but I must try it again. I don’t recommend this approach; this is what I am doing and reporting as my journey toward wellness continues…
