I am finding out walking on a treadmill 4-5 times a week for 25 minutes...

Is it closer to 4 or to 5? (Be honest) ;)

The key is to curtail eating processed foods, period.

Bingo!

Also fruits are very high carb but they’re not all alike.

Whole fruits are best, not just the juice. And fruit with higher fiber (pears) helps save off the quick uptake of sugar that contributes to diabetes.

Importantly, diabetics should learn about and take several supplements that can help them fend off some of the worst aspects of the disease.

1) Vitamin B-1. Diabetics typically urinate a lot, which results in depletion of albumin. This is responsible for kidney damage. It is also hard on the heart.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20107192

However, taking a B multivitamin over an extended time may actually be harmful, so stick to B-1.

2) R-Alpha Lipoic Acid (R-ALA)(not just ‘plain’ ALA), has been shown to both limit diabetic peripheral neuropathy, but also to improve circulation in the extremities. This neuropathy and reduced circulation is responsible for most diabetic foot problems.

I wonder where does tequila fit in this diet? In any event: Don Julio anejo, good. Cuervo anything, bad.

tequila fits in the evening :)

my faves for sipping are Casa Noble Anejo (purple bottle), Clase Azul Reposado... and i want to try Don Elias Extra Anejo...

i like Tres Generaciones Anejo for sipping and shooting...

and for shooting, i like Corralejo Reposado (blue bottle), Don Julio Anejo, Patron Silver...

Jose Cuervo has a premium tequila i have not tried... i want to... it's supposed to be good--Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia... it's over 100 bucks a bottle... i have had Patron Platinum--really smooth--but very pricey...

Weird. Not you, of course. Just the constipation. I know it’s not part of south beach, but coconut oil - a few TB (total) throughout the day seems to help a lot of people with that problem. You may want to give that a try.

It sounds like SB worked really well for you otherwise. Tweak it a bit and see what happens. Or, you could do what a lot of people have done: eat a bag of sugar free candy containing maltitol. You won’t ever complain of constipation on a low carb diet again.

joking!

FWIH The secret is in the legs. The more muscle in your legs, the more regulated your sugar.

That makes sense to me. When figuring what is good for the body, think of how our ancestors evolved going back over a million years. Those genes get passed on. They survived by walking many miles everyday in search of food. Agriculture is only 15,000 years or old. Before that it was a nomadic life. They ate fruits, berries, root vegetables and whatever animal they could kill for food which had to be sporadic with no guns nor bows and arrows.

LMAO...When the treadmill was in the garage (I have a 4 car tandem garage..lots of space) I hated using it because it was cold there 7 months out of 12. Now I have it in my living room and I am using it much more. I can watch TV, listen to music and the 25 minutes goes fast. Got to go now...and get on the treadmill lol.

I was taking metformin (500 mg twice a day), but my doctor pulled me off the medication yesterday.

I don't know how you can beat that. Bravo!

Thanks to you and the other posters that passed on the kind words. It's a great feeling, but there can't be any let-up.

Guess I’m the only person here who can survive breakfast at Burger King, lunch at McDonalds, sugary snacks in the afternoon and tv dinner at night. Carbs always, no veggies ever. Hate the foods people say are “good for you”. Am not overweight but really don’t want to live forever, anyway. Who would in this world?
