As of 11/8/10, I have updated the 'Share Your Health Profile' form to include what kind of food you eat. The reason is so obvious that I completely overlooked it. But after many many forms submitted to me, I realized that in every case, I had to email back with the same question: What are you eating every day?

This is so critical to reversing type 2 diabetes, losing weight, or curing any chronic disease that I'm actually embarrassed that I didn't put it on the form to begin with.

Go to my Blog that I just started (7/10/10), where you can read the latest news about Type 2 Diabetes, Obesity, and other related things that I find and think are important enough to mention.

I'm getting a lot of requests with regard to what I eat on a daily basis...

Hereís a chart of foods I eat each day that finally worked out. Keep in mind, I did a lot of trial and error testing when I first started to figure it out. But, at the start of things, when I completely stopped all grains and starches and within a few days, my insulin levels stabilized, I knew I was on the right track.  

Breakfast

Egg whites (eggbeaters- 4 oz. with a little olive oil), blue berries, strawberries, grapes (Ĺ plates because of the fructose in fruit).

 

Morning Snack

Apple and piece of cheese, or celery and peanut butter, or pear and some nuts sprinkled with some olive oil. (Note: no bananas or high glycemic load fruit.)

Lunch

Salad with lettuce, tomatoes, and tuna (water based) mixed with chopped up celery , onion and a little mayonnaise and sprinkled with olive oil; or a protein shake made with protein powder, apple juice, blueberries, strawberries, and some grapes with nuts on the side; or some soup and celery with peanut butter.    

 

Afternoon Snack

If I need one, it will be kind of like the morning snack.

 

Dinner

I eat a lot of salads made up (at different times) of slices of fish, low fat meat, turkey, chicken, avocados, tomatoes, lettuce, fruit, and vinegar and oil with a dash of olive oil; or 4oz. of protein (3 oz. for my wife), and between 1/3 and 2/3ís plate size of vegetables or fruit with a dash of olive oil.

 

Before Bed Snack

Apple and piece of cheese, or celery and peanut butter, or pear and some nuts sprinkled with some olive oil. (Note: no bananas or high glycemic load fruit.)

I know that not everyone can follow my chart exactly because of various reasons; however, the pattern above is very important. In other words: no grains or starches, eat the correct amount of fruits, vegetables, protein, and a dash of monounsaturated fat (olive oil) at every meal or snack is vital.  

I learned that after two and a half years as a loyal self-injecting diabetic, I had discovered a discipline about myself that I didnít know I had. I realized that this discipline was because of fear. I feared what would happen if I didnít inject myself and eat the way the American Diabetes Association so instructed.  

However, after two and a half years, I also knew that I was getting worse instead of better. So, when I took a different path in figuring out how to reverse my type 2 diabetes, I knew I could do it because now I had the discipline to see it through.  

Therefore, if you are at the point where you have the discipline in taking your medicines (insulin and/or pills), then you know (or should know) you possess the discipline to eat correctly and exercise every day.  

Whoever said this was absolutely right: ďEat to live, not live to eat
