Exercise before or after meals: study pertaining to Diabetes and blood sugar levels

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I am not sure how I got to the page on this link, but the info is important to me...and perhaps to other diabetics. The article relates to exercise before or after eating and how it affects blood sugars. I am posting it for MY information, but thought others might also be interested in the study done. I can't find the page now, but the lady that posted the link is a Doctor. She has had good success with weigh tloss and fitness using T-Tapp after having a baby.

The Dr. who posted the link to the above article is Dr. Lana Asprey who is co author, with her husband, Dave, of The New Baby Book. I found her via T-Tapp website:

Virus Warning (humor)

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Another email...with a "health" warning of sorts. It came with cartoons and with the comments in a different color print. I have put the comments in quotes to set them apart on here.

Virus Warning - coming sooner or later!

I thought you would want to know about this e-mail virus. Even the most advanced programs from Norton or McAfee cannot take care of this one. It appears to affect some born prior to 1970

1.. Causes you to send the same e-mail twice. "Done that!"

2. Causes you to send a blank e-mail ! "That too!"

3. Causes you to send e-mail to the wrong person.. "yep!"

4. Causes you to send it back to the person who sent it to you. "Aaha!"

5. Causes you to forget to attach the attachment. "Well darn!"

6. Causes you to hit "SEND" before you've finished. "Oh, no not again!"

7. Causes you to hit "DELETE" instead of "SEND.." "And I just hate that!"

8. Causes you to hit "SEND" when you should "DELETE." "Oh No!"

"Hmmm.....Have I already sent this to You, or did you send it to me?"

More silly health guidelines

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I copied this from a FB post, but have received it via email several times. Enjoy!

I love this guy and his philosophy
Smart Doctor!

Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: Heart only good for so many beats, and that it... Don't waste on exercise. Everything wear out eventually. Speeding up heart not make you live longer; it like saying you extend life of car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take nap.

Q: Should I reduce my alcohol intake?
A: Oh no. Wine made from fruit. Brandy distilled wine, that mean they take water out of fruity bit so you get even more of goodness that way. Beer also made of grain. Bottom up!

Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
A: Well, if you have body and you have fat, your ratio one to one. If you have two body, your ratio two to one.

Q: What are some of the advantages of participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of single one, sorry. My philosophy: No pain...good!

Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: YOU NOT LISTENING! Food fried in vegetable oil. How getting more vegetable be bad?

Q : Will sit-ups help prevent me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Oh no! When you exercise muscle, it get bigger. You should only be doing sit-up if you want bigger stomach.

Q: Is chocolate bad for me?
A: You crazy?!? HEL-LO-O!! Cocoa bean! Another vegetable! It best feel-good food around!

Q: Is swimming good for your figure?
A: If swimming good for figure, explain whale to me.

Q: Is getting in shape important for my lifestyle?
A: Hey! 'Round' is shape!

Well... I hope this has cleared up any misconceptions you may have had about food and diets.

And remember:
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - chocolate in the other - body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"


For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans...

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

    Hey asta, I seen it too and giggled out loud.
Someone in the Park here, said the DR told him not to worry about dieting after 70 cuz he did as much damage to his body as he was going to do. I guess the Dr didn't think he could change things. Well, I don't believe that for a minute. I want to keep trying. MA

Another view on aging.

Monday, January 14, 2013

People do share the silliest things. This came via email:

Someone had to remind me, so I'm reminding You, too.

Don't laugh.... It is all true!

Perks of reaching 50 or being over 60 and heading towards 70!

1. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.

2. In a hostage situation, you are likely to be released first.

3. No one expects you to run - anywhere.

4. People call at 9 PM and ask, 'Did I wake you?'

5. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.

6. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.

7. Things you buy now won't wear out.

8. You can eat supper at 4 PM.

9. You can live without sex but not your glasses.

10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.

11.You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.

12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in no matter who walks into the room.

13. You sing along with elevator music.

14. Your eyes won't get much worse.

15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.

16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.

17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can't remember them either.

18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.

19. You can't remember who sent you this list. And you notice these are all in big print for your convenience.


Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill, and a laxative on the same night!.
