Adding LIFE to your years and years to your life!
Sometime around May 1st (about 2-3 weeks into my new 811 diet) I took my fasting blood sugar reading... it was 101 which is barely pre-diabetic, but still I was a bit surprised. I really thought my number should have been spot on- which is anything less than 85. 85-100 is pre pre-diabetic, 100-115 is pre-diabetic, 126 and above is diabetic. I have been eating "raw" for just over a year... but my diet was becoming very high in raw junk- lots of seeds and nuts (flax crackers, nut pate's and cheeses, chocolates made with cacao and coconut oil, noritos... where's the fruit and veggies??? Okay- a large kale salad every once in a while buried under creamy garlic dressing made with cashews! Did you know that the average raw foodist's diet can be as high as 70% fat???!!! Twice as high as the Standard American Diet!!!!! If I wasn't there, then I was pretty darn close!) I'm so glad I took that blood sugar reading back in May- now wished I had taken it before starting 811, but 2-3 weeks in isn't bad.
I thought to take it again June 1st, just to see if there was any change... but I've been forgetting every morning for 2 weeks! lol Last night I put my glucometer with my glasses so I couldn't forget.... this morning's reading? drum roll please......
84!!!!!!! WOOHOO!!! NORMAL!! (when have I ever been normal, hahaha!) I am ecstatic!!! It works- it really works!! Clearing the fat out of your system, getting it unclogged and all cleaned up allows your insulin and insulin receptors to function properly. I went from pre-diabetic to normal in 6 short weeks! WOW! :)
Have a great weekend everyone- Go Fruit Yourselves!! :)
