Insulin Resistance Is The Problem

Hello Weight Losing Fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Scale weighing in at 199-Pounds.

That's up... However, my waist line is still shrinking. Go figure.

Anyway, I don't post a whole lot anymore mostly now because I just don't have the time.

I heard the news today another friend of mine is taking insulin because he has adult onset diabetes.

Type 1 diabetes must take insulin because they can not produce insulin.

However, most adults who get adult onset diabetes don't have a problem with not making enough insulin. The problem is they make too much insulin, and their bodies develop a resistance to it. When their is too much sugar in the system, the body excretes insulin. This insulin is supposed to scrub the body of the sugar. What it usually does is stores the excessive sugar as body fat. Too much sugar though also becomes a problem with the insulin levels being so high for so long, the body loses it's ability to process sugar. In essence the body becomes immune or resistant to it's own insulin. The result is a decease called adult onset diabetes.

There are other factors involved with this as well. A lack of minerals such as magnesium, vanadium, chromium, copper, iodine and nutrients like vitamin C, cause the body to not function as it should.

But, the biggest problem is too much insulin for too long in the system. The body can only store 4-grams of glucose at any one time (That is about a teaspoon of sugar). If there is excessive glucose the body must store it or excrete it. This is where insulin works. Insulin takes the sugar converts it to fat and stores it. The body also dumps sugar out of the body, and this is why sugar can be detected in the urine with a test strip.

These days when doctors see this in tests they react by prescribing medications. Instead they should say to the patient, it's time for you to give up sugar, and quit eating so many carbohydrates.
My friends blood sugar must have gotten so high the doctor gave him insulin. On his FACEBOOK page he was talking about passing out from an insulin overdose. Well, yeah dude you already have insulin in your system. Your problem isn't too much Insulin. Your problem is the body can't use what it has anymore.

Can it be fixed. Most of the times it can be fixed. But, it will take a strict diet of getting off sugar, and carbohydrates. It will also mean fasting between meals and letting the insulin levels drop back to normal.

I don't have time to go into more details about this. However, go look up insulin Resistance. Take a look at the videos I posted in the past.

If you are overweight, and you have body fat, then the odds are real good you are becoming a victim of insulin resistance...

Hello weight losing fans...

Today I stepped up onto the scale weighing in at 196-Pounds +... that's down from yesterday...

I wrote before, and I will say it again, I am now using a tape measure.

Yesterday I had two views.... Can you believe? Well, I do.... There is nothing profound about weight loss.

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the scale weighing in at 198-pounds + ... Yep that's an increase. Last night I ate after 8-PM which is very unusual for me. So that was on the scale early this morning.

I had a talk with a friend yesterday. He seems to think that I am starving myself to death. This is because I have noticeably trimmed down. Now, I am not bent out of shape with this weight gain. He complains that he must lose weight .... Will he take the steps. ? NO.... I tell him that I eat a lot of butter. In fact I actually eat at least one stick a day. I also take the fat from my hamburgers and pour it into the vegetables. Fat suppresses appetite. It actually helps to control the amount of food someone wants to eat. It has for me. I am not actually losing the inches more than I am losing the pounds.

Now, would I like to get my weight down? Yeah... At what expense my actual muscle. And, I had written for years my frustration with never ending hunger. Butter, and fat help me want less. It still takes will power to leave sweets alone. However, I can eat a lot of fat, and then actually increase my fat and proteins. Which helps with hunger.

That's all for now.... I'm David Dane

Hello weight losing fans....

Today I stepped up on the scale weighing in at just over 196-pounds.  That is up... I am not worried. I have adapted a new way of looking at this. I am now down another inch on my waist line and on my chest. My sides where the rolls of fat hang are looking flatter. I am making progress. And, my neck has gone from 18-inches to 16-inches...

I started exercising again a couple weeks ago. I have added stuff in here and there. Yesterday I added in some grass routines because it was warm.
Let's see what it will do...

Hello Weight Losing Fans....

Today I stepped up onto the Scale weighing in at just over 194-Pounds.

I thought I would check out the blog and see where the stats were for readers. Wow, I am all the way down to zero...

That's Okay.. It's hard to post, and post on a blog everyday.

Well, I replaced my scale that broke with a new one... That new scale got fried with water over flow from the tub. Oops...

I purchased an inexpensive scale that only measures the weight.

So for now, it's no longer the magical mystical digital scale. It is just a scale.

Today I weighed in at just over 194-Pounds. Last May of 2016 I was 214-Pounds...
January of 2016 I was 225-Pounds.

I was down recently as low as 191.4-Pounds.

I have lost 5-inches off my stomach and off my chest.

I am back to doing some exercises each day with the hope of increasing the regimen.

I am not planning on writing on this everyday. A year ago I just ran out of things to write.

I will tell you this, I have changed my mind about some things. Weight doesn't matter near as much as the lose of inches on the waist and chest. I have lost many inches on both areas.

Now, does weight and inches correspond? Well, yeah.  Only that doesn't reflect the actual condition of the body, or it's real muscle structure verses the fat content. I haven't lost many pounds over this last year. I have lost many inches.  I am pretty sure I am holding on to much of my muscle mass.

In the beginning of my writing my blog I was losing weight because I restricted my calories. Well, now I don't restrict calories. I eat what I eat. Much of what I eat is FAT.

That's all for now...... !

The Cheapest Thing You Can Do Is Take Care Of Your Health

Hello Weight Losing Fans...

Today I stepped up onto the Scale... NOT... No New Scale Yet..

However I am excited that my chest has gone from 47-Inches down to 43-Inches.

I wrote that the cheapest thing anyone can do is to take care one's health.

There is an old cliche: All the money in the world won't help if you have bad health.. Now that might not be exact, but you get the idea.

I was talking to a family member today. He/she was asking if I have diabetes. I said no. He/She said how do you know if you haven't been tested? Well, my last physical was last year, and my sugar tests did not show sugars in the urine. I showed slightly high for protein. That is only because I had about four raw eggs, and two scoops of protein for breakfast the morning of my physical.

It's pretty amazing because two of my brothers have had to go on medications for high sugar in the blood. Here I am I am not on any medication for anything. But, boy I sure do take a lot of supplements.

Now, based upon some of the weight I have gained and lost, it's possible I might have become a type two diabetic. I certainly developed insulin resistance. That is a precursor to becoming a type two diabetic. So far no one has ever detected sugar in my urine, and I haven't either. I never did get my thyroid checked by a doctor. If I had I am sure I would be on some kind of medication too.

I think I am this fortunate because unlike my fellow family members, I used to run all the way up until I was about 35 years old. I even ran when I got too pudgy for the Army Reserves.  I was healthy for the most part. My real down fall came getting addicted to Coke. I went a couple years drinking 2 liters of Coke everyday. Then when I switched out of Regular Coke, I began drinking Diet Coke 2 liters. Boy, you talk about a recipe for disaster. Diet Coke created havoc on my brain, and my cartilage in my knees.

You can read my past archives to get the story. Now, I am on a different track. I think this will be more sustainable. Oh, I hate giving up the sweets. Only, that's what must be.
It's not easy going to friends houses either ... Because everyone is stuck in the old paradigm. They are stuck eating lots of starches, drinking Cokes, and eating Cake and Ice Cream.
It's still a temptation to eat the wrong thing.

Now, I take a lot of different supplements. It's not cheap. I am trying desperately to completely give up the sweets. So far I have faltered once in the last month.. I got knocked out of Ketosis on Thursday night, and still haven't gotten back into it yet. I am working at it.

If you look up men my age on the internet at least 50 percent of the men near my age are on some kind of medication. I am not. I haven't had major surgeries in 30-years, and that because of injuries in the military. The cheapest thing I can do for my health is finally get my weight back under control. This has a lot to do with the kind of food I eat. Fructose Sugar has to become a no-no. Large amounts of Carbohydrates need to become no-nos. And, on the list of things to avoid grows. I still eat fat. I eat lots of fat. Yep, that's against everything we were taught about fats. I eat meat. Today I had Turkey in broth. I eat vegetables that are mostly green. I will modify that menu later. I am concentrating on getting my body fat down. That might not mean getting back down to 170. As long as I don't have a bunch of fat hanging off my belly, then I will be good.

So far, so good.

That's the way it is.. I'm David Dane
