Sharing thoughts...

Indian philosopher Jiddu Krishnamurti : “It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.”

"The bottom line is that the same supplement used by two different people for the same condition can produce two entirely different results. What does that mean? It means that gulping down "miracle herbs" and "miracle supplements" to treat disease is like trying to hit a clay pigeon in the sky, with a 22-caliber rifle . . . while blindfolded. The odds are very much against you.

The secret to health, the secret to all the success that the great alternative healers share, is that they look to raise every inch of a person's Personal Health Line. If you do that, if you raise the entire line, the odds are in your favor. In fact, it's almost impossible to miss."

on balancing blood sugar.
Jon Barron is the person to whom I turn to for verification, whenever I read about something new. (This doesn't mean I follow every recommendation he makes, or follow a vegetarian diet which he recommends - just that he writes with such clarity about complicated conditions and presents a scientific approach to the subject of nutritional therapy.

George Bernard Shaw

"It is easy... terribly easy... to shake a man's faith in himself. To take advantage of that, to break a man's spirit, is the devil's work"

This is how I start my day...

That's retirement for you - when I worked - nearly a decade ago now - I was lucky to get a few sips of coffee before I went out, there was so much to do.

Now it's mainly what shall I choose to do today - other than walk the dog and cook a meal etc.

We often eat when really we are thirsty, so I nearly always have a large mug of something half an hour before a meal. I don't drink when I eat.

Back to last week - Friday the ok but slipped out of control a bit in the eve alcohol and snack wise. On Sat the scales were up to 13.13 again but no panic and allowed myself a beer on Sat and wine on Sunday just kept the eating pretty much in line. Mon 13.12, Tues back to 13.11 and this morning 13.9! Now that suprised me and Beth I had taken those measurements at 13.13 and they were an inch down this morning! Not only that my blood sugar is better and I'm taking less insulin. So feeling motivated to stay on track. The eating is not hard as I eat as much protein and veg as I want and I am used to this - it is just stopping the few extras like choc (I allow a couple of 75%) and being very strict on the carb front and of course controlling the alcohol - I had 3 nights with no drinks last week but have only had one this week, so time for a couple now.

Tea is always a good place to start. And from such a fine tea set too :)
