Thanks for your comments about gluten on my Spark page. I am just beginning to learn this stuff. I'm sure that the more I know, the more I will realize that I don't know about this stuff. I, too, have heard about inflammatory foods - but never realized that wheat was one of them. I felt great on the cleanse. So far, I've been able to avoid gluten since finishing the cleanse.

Have you read the book "Wheat Belly?" I've heard that is good. I don't have time for pleasure reading this semester. All my reading is from my text books, but I'm hoping over the Christmas break to get some personal reading in. Anything you can suggest?

Glad to hear that you are feeling better. Stay the course.

PS - I just read your weigh in post. Cool that you have free-range chickens! I'm into smoothies, but not ready for raw eggs in them - or veggies, for that matter. I'm a fruity smoothie kind-of-girl!

Sorry to hear about all the challenges you are facing besides diabetes. I'm holding you in prayer.

Glad to hear that your Nutri-Bullet is motivating you and that you have your game face on. Diabetes is nothing to mess with.

If you go to my Spark blogs in summary view, click on the Last Page (earliest blots), and look for the blog on Tuesday, November 10, 2009 titled Reaction to “Diabetes: The Quiet Killer”. It's a paper that I wrote after viewing a documentary about Type II diabetes.

Wishing you the best of health, Bob.

emoticon farmers?! How COOL is THAT?! I wish I could. I met a woman at a yard sale who would sell us her eggs (I saved a lot of egg cartons for her), but when I asked her to feed her chickens gluten-free I never heard from her again. LOL. I would like to find chickens fed lots of bugs and gf whatever food they eat. ;) I can eat the yolk only as the whites are inflammatory and "hista-meanie". My HDL is pretty high considering I've been so off on the diet, too. Keep up your good work Bob!
