No aerobics. No dogma. Lift weights for exercise. Hunt, fish, gather my own firewood (actually now swap firewood for guitar lessons so I have more play time), pick berries, and rock climb. Just a guy in his 50s who five years ago weighed on average between 235 and 240. I'm now just attempting to maintain a body that would put the average mid 20s male to shame.

Oh yeah. Deal with a doctor or prescribing nurse Who specialises in diabetes.. Don't go to your GP. They don't like the learning curve.

England is correct. If you haven't seen your doctor your insulin is to high. Since insulin is a fast storage hormone your body could be destroying muscle to spare fast. Worst possible scenario. My mom's diabetic. We've been dealing with it for some time.

How does this work?!
I'm there with HCB. Diablo hasn't changed his photo in years. He could by now be a 40 year old living in his mom's basement. As for me, I am dogmatic with diet. I believe almost anything will work, for about six weeks. I am dogmatic about protein. That's about it. Everything else is negotiable. I fluctuate all over the place on the other two. I've tried most techniques. In my opinion, calories are king, but I also recognize that between diabetes and hypoglycemia we're all somewhere on a curve, which means some things work better for some people. I like to play with my chemistry set.

Convenient Foods
Chadlius. But it can't be bad because it's natural right? You know - like arsenic. That would be an awesome way to lose muscle mass though. (Yeah, either.)
