Hi there everyone beautiful person out there, this is my update, as you know I have been trying to follow a fairly slow carb diet (which I am enjoying more than I thought) secondly I have been dosing with vitad3 gels with wool oil, okay when I started this whole thing I started out at 40,000 iu working down over several months this past year or so, (as you can see above if you can read it why these dosages seem okay for me) but several times after I start to see results and feel so much better sleeping better reduced apetite for high sugary foods go down, and more energy and less fuzzy fog etc I lower the dose so I don’t over do it, well every time I did after a few weeks the symptoms start to return and I have to up it again for a couple of weeks to see the symptoms abate (I did this about 3 times) so now I am back at 25,000 iu, per day, 5000 per day was not enough, too low for maintenance, 10,000 also was too low, I took this dosage for a couple of weeks and seen no improvement.

I have been dosing in the 20,000 iu range for about 2 weeks or so and I am starting to feel so much better. my appetite has normalized (don’t need to constantly munch) I sleep through the night again without the hunger or nervousness of low blood sugar symptoms even tho on paper I do not have hypoglycemia.

my periods are starting to normalize (until I started to eat a high soy product I did not know I was eating, I cannot handle even a hint of soy itmesses up my periods makes them last longer, heavier, more crampy and pms is worse as well) so I have reduced that, flaxseed and it’s oil does the same thing.  But my mood is better too. I am starting to have a training effect, improvments in stamina, breathing and etc when I exercise. I do hope you all can read those notes I scanned, tried to get a copy into a word processing document but it only pasted jibberjabber language.

enjoy. oh here is a picture of what is happening as of now,

metabolic syndrome

howdy gang, how are you all doing? is it cold where you are? is surly  here,yikes! who turned down the thermostat! at least the sun has been shining parts of the day each day.  does anyone else kind a go into a semi conscious state during winters, where they just want to sit around and only get up to do things they absolutly have too. do you notice increase in weight and appetite? do you zone out for long periods of time? do you suffer obesity hypertension and high cholesterol and other health problems? I know I do.

I know I have been dealing with metabolic syndrome for like 40 years. when I was younger I didnt know that is what I had, but anyway was just reading in a pubmed article, short and sweet but informative article about it. they are now starting to call metabolic syndrome as winter metabolism. why? well they are starting to realize that obesity hypertension and other parameters of metabolic syndrome (MS) is a winter response, weight gain along with hypertension and high cholesterol is a survival response (I have been calling it that for a long time) to signals of winter (low vitad3) due to lack of sunshine (I am sure there are other signals to the body too like quality of food and amount of sunshine hitting the pineal gland through the eyes) is a triggor for this.

Another feature of winter is lower food quantity and quality. this is probably a triggor too, (you know all the dieting people do for weight loss; weight loss alone can be a triggor for overeating to regain weight to survive the winter you keep imposing on it by NOT EATING enough. there I said it. so STOP DIETING! okay I yelled enough.

So if your in a survival or long term stressful situation that is depleting nutrients or your undereating or eating poorly, the last thing your body wants is the added stress of forced exercise!! exercise is a stress on an already stressed out system. so you feel lazy and unmotivated. well duh!!! you would think we would get this, you think I would get this (well finally did) that laziness and over eating is a winter response (even in summer)now I will not force exercise anymore, will do so only when I get the signal to do so.

so metabolic syndrome is a survival mechinsm in a enviroment of poor quality food or lack of certain nutrients like minerals and vitad3 and other nutrients (like protein especially plant proteins). for me I found if I drop my vitad3 below 5000 or 6000 iu my symptoms gradually start to show their ugly faces, it  takes about 2 or 3 weeks to start to manifest itself. but once I get the amount back up after a week I start to notice the symptoms resolving themselves. remember I did megadosing for almost a whole year, before decreasing to a maintenance of 2000 iu per day as recommended by doctors. so now my dose will remain at 5-6 thousand per day until furthur notice. obviously I lost the ability to make it myself (you all know how much I love the sun) I am starting to sleep better and feeling better, I did add some vitamines supplements like c, b, and some minerals a little bit of fiber and still take my cinnomon and chromium too.

alas!!! the road is long and hard and the view has not always been very pleasant, in fact it has been downright annoying, depressing and frustrating.  can you relate? yikes where is the end of the rainbow, never mind that, where is that darn rainbow? cannot seem to locate it. oh well will have to carry on as I can still see light at the end of this path.

thanks my dear followers, hope this was informative and helpful. still working on my dinosuars, did a dinosaur shirt, learning how to draw a t rex, triceratops, dilpilosaurs?, cant remember all the names. need to practice some more.

hi there, I was just bored trying to figure out how to illustrate in a drawing what i wanted to show, but couldn’t figure out how to do it in a way you would be able to understand, some of my drawings can be a bit messy and disorganized, like my house is.

anyway, you know how you spend so many years of your life trying to solve a problem and you try one thing then another until after a few decades you start to wonder if you will ever find the solution to a serious problem your dealing with? Then each time you think you found it and it seems to be working then it doesn’t? you know how dissappointing that is. You look for answers and try different suggestions from the experts who swear it should work, but it never does and then they accuse you of not trying hard enough or cheating or whatever? And it doesn’t matter what the problem is either.

then you find something that actually starts to work out, it seems to be consistant for a while, and then in your mind you get a sense of relief, and excitement, but then your excitement is squashed by the realization what if this is just another fluke? You examine the solution and all it’s parts, the problems it has solved up to that point and wonder did I find it? then you look at yourself and say don’t get to excited yet, give it time.

Well I decided to try supplementation with mega doses of vitad3, thinking if I am deficient in this despite all efforts to get it up naturally through eating properly and getting plenty of sunshine, I decided to it in mega doses, about 40,000 iu at first for about a month then dropped it down to about 20,000 iu per day for about 2 months then down to 10,000 iu for a couple of weeks, now that I am getting plenty of sun I stopped the pills. I mean according to the research this should work for all that stuff that comes with metabolic syndrome.

Does it? what say I?  I mean it couldn’t solve this complex of a problem can it? after all that is too simplistic right? well here we go I have been sleeping through the night now for about 2 or 3 weeks for a change, can’t believe it. havent done this in 10 years or more. I always would have the symptoms of low blood sugar in the night (despite a normal glucose tolerance test)have to get up, eat in order to go back to sleep. I mean 2 or 3 am  night after night for years is a bit annoying don’t you think? It was downright frustrating and enraging, I would be so tired and so hungry and jittery like crazy I would probably of bitten someone’s head off if you said something stupid to me at that time, lol.

I have not had to do this now for almost 3 weeks. I am like this is not a fluke is it? And cravings for junk food? almost gone, sugar cravings almost gone, fewer and fewer epidsodes of jitteriness, cravings for sugar,(except I do get a little during pms time that lasts a couple of days which is still alot less then before) and yes I can now get a little hungry during the day and not eat anything because I am not hungry enough and have that little bit hunger shut off and I thus can fast a little bit comfortably, I mean really? where have you been all my life you wonderful sunshine vitamin? why are doctors so brainwashed in the old ideas? well we won’t go there right now.

other benefits? more energy, not as headachy as before (which was probably the glucose drops and adrenalin response)better exercise response, my response to exercise in gaining in stamina, muscle strength, etc was minimal, now it is like I am not working as hard and getting a very good response.  Coincidence? I think not. Being overwieght I have to be careful to avoid injury from using the treadmill, going for walks and using the weights. I used it today wearing my gorilla feet (fila four toes) since my treadmill has such a good cushion I want to protect my knees from to much cushion stress, and did some weights, despite pmsing, which usually makes me kind of sluggish and not able to exercise much.

my knees were bothering me last week and not sure why so I figured the cushion of the treadmill plus my really air cushion shoes may have been to much or it could of been the weights not sure. so apparently vitad3 is just to vital for glucose handling to treat it lightly and doctors have not gotten the memo yet.

 So why is it so important then? well apparently if your glucose setpoint is set to high due to resistance at the brain blood brain barrier normal amounts of glucose can’t get through and your brain registers it as starvation, and sends signals to raise sugar levels via adranline (especially if insulin levels are too high)and cortisol and glucagon,but as the concentration of the blood gets higher then some sugar can make it through via saturation, but this fix is temporary and very damaging over long term (hence glycation, fat accumulation, pancreatic damage and fat accumulation on liver and heart and stomach.) hyperglycemia is compensation for this resistance, hence sugar in the blood for too long is damaging so your body uses fat cells to proliferate to suck it up and produce fat to get it out  of the blood as fast as possible since the liver can’t keep up and the muscles cells can’t use it as they are resistant (because of lack of vitad3 and cholesterol sulfate)which drives the glucose below setpoint (even tho in the normal healthy range by the numbers)the brain registers this as low blood sugar since it aint getting any, hence the cycle repeats. you get hungry for high gi foods to drive it up really fast and high so the brain gets it before it all gets converted to fat, and of course the cells are forced to use fat for fuel since insulin is not needed for them to access it, and if the insulin levels are high the fat cells do not release and hence the cells need a advanced surge of fat before you eat, hence high triglcerides when insulin levels are low, with me so far?

then the fat cells have to proliferate even more as each cell is hindered by their lack of enough cholesterol sulfate, vitad3 and other nutrients, to handle all that sugar. sugar is very toxic in large amounts it sticks to everything and reacts to oxygen, it is like gasoline.fat is like oil, or diesel, fructose like rocket fuel.

so fat cells also become damaged over time and thus you get even fatter but this is getting to detailed just suffice to say without enough fat soluable vitamins, and cholesterol sulfate in our systems we are doomed to suffer a long, slow, agonizing death. not unless you can abort it by correcting the underlying deficienies.

so my guess is I have lowered my glucose setpoint, a good thing, and need less sugar in my blood for the brain to get it’s juice it needs. Sure is nice to be alot more calmer and less hungry everyday, so now I am giving it to my little dog who is fat to see if it will help her too. time will tell. 

wow, getting results already.

 

Hi there, wanted to share something that has intrigued me, I have been doing alot of walking latly (for some odd reason I cannot stand still) and one thing I noticed, I feel like I am standing up better (not crouched over crushing my lungs?) standing up straight was difficult I always ended up leaning a bit forward as I walk, and another thing my ankles arent hurting. they always hurt when I walk alot, my stride is more effcient I walk faster without added effort it is as if my legs are going more straight or something . it is weird,

another thing too is I find if my carb intake is below 25percent of total caloires that I wake about 4 am and can’t sleep, hypo symptoms, and I have to get up and eat something, but if I keep it around 25 percent, mostly quality starches (fruit was not cutting it for me) I sleep straight through and don’t wake until around 6 or so.

ther is really something to this s/low carb way, wish I would of done this long ago. oh yea, I am finding I lost all munchies and cravings of junky foods, even pop doesn’t appeal like it used to, it has never happened like this to me before. after 35 years of dealing with obesity and metabolic syndrome trying to follow the “experts” advice only to be dissappointed and feeling like I am a failure that it was my fault, rather I realize it is the wrong information for me,

thanks for all my followers, I don’t feel like I am typing into the wind where no one can hear me. I hope my posts are not boring.

a pretty part of trail at gorge park cuyahoga falls park. I thought the combo of rocky face and trees was pretty.

howdy friends

this is just an update on my low carb way, I had a few bumps a few days ago, I was having trouble with increased appetite (probably due to pms it is time you know)one day I ate way to much, I should never eat a sandwich 2 and half hours before supper, and when I do I should just drink a protein drink I ended up overeating (even tho it was mostly good food barring a few cookies I ate), I learned my lesson to just drink a protein drink small one when I am hungry and supper is two hours away. the next day my appetite did drop and I ended up eating less, maybe my body agreed with me that I ate to much. the past few days I have been okay, my cravings for ice cream have been minimal, I had some yesterday and I just took two servings per package and added my favorite natural peanut butter wow that was a delicious combination.

today I am doing well, I did wake up in the middle of the night with the jitters, ate some peanut butter, and a small protein drink with a banana, took awhile to feel better now I realize why that happened old mother natures montly gift, thanks a bunch there lady. I also had some physical activity the night before before going to bed so I guess my sugar fell during the night.

what is funny I don’t feel at fatigued like usually this time of hte month, usually for the first few days I am like don’t ask me to do anything, not this time. maybe there is something to this low carb thing after all. I was anemic there a while back and the doc told me to take 325 mg of iron for 6 months. but that has come and gone several months ago. back in august I took my last dosage of iron.

the process has been slow, I did have that sickness there for almost two weeks but I am finally feeling well. last night I also remembered I forgot my bp pill which may have contributed to my anxiety, not sure.

if any are interested I have a few videos I did called low carb dialog part one two and three. you can check it out, I also plan a fourth as I see the results of this low carb way I am doing. or maybe call it my low carb hiking trail or some other neat title, you all can give me some ideas to title my videos because not to many people are watching my videos, so I need a name change.

 

 

YOU on a diet review part 2

I finished my reading and in some places rereading of this book. i have to say his info on hormones and its affects on eating and satiaty was pretty good, I can get this information for free on the internet. the exercise ideas are good and information on weight loss surguries.  my take on the whole book recommendations for permanent weight loss?

LOW FAT, HIGH CARBOHYDRATE DIET, yep you heard me the very same recommendation of the government food pyramid. wow what insight for doctors who get to be on tv who are practically worshipped who don’t even know more than the government bureacrates in washington when it comes to obesity.  in fact they do not really know what causes heart disease, fatty liver (outside alcohol which is a carb by the way)diabetes or how to cure cancer they are focused on treating symptoms not the root of the problem,so much for all the money spent on college. If I were doctors of today I  would ask for my money back.

a bit of side note, I am not saying some of teh things doctors do arnt beneficial, don’t get me wrong, it is just for chronic problems they seem to fall short big time.

myths about weight issues

I find it funny that with all the research and experieince out there the “experts” are still pushing myths. even i have done the research and have experience enough to know these myths are just that myths. it has become a medical or social meme, something people believe and accept without quesiton to where everyone practically believes it except a few who think outside the box.

I have been reading the book YOU on a diet by dr oz and Roizen. I have read it before long time ago, but didn’t remember what it said, brain fog I suppose, he makes alot of mistakes in it, like calling omega 3 and 6 monounsaturates. I thought they were poly unsaturates. He says omentum causes inflammation, I was under th impression infections and damage causes inflammation you know your twist your ankle and it swells and hurts etc. you cut your self and it inflammes and heals. so is he saying omentum is inflammed? why would it be inflammed? (omentum is the fat you get in you belly under the muscle for those who don’t know what it is) is omentum infected or damaged in some way?

he also states that fat cells absorb bacteria, really? why would it do that? could it be that the bacteria invaded the fat cell through the initiation of force? (this is my new phrase this week lol) why would fat cells allow that? could it be because the myth is that fats and cholesterol are bad and people are encouraged not to eat them? what do you suppose cells are primarly made of? fat and cholesterol? I guess we won’t entertain the idea that fats are not just used for energy but for building cells as well. that would be disasterous. it would mean people would have more resistance to infections and injury and illness and decrease doctors revenue as cholesterol and fats especially satureated are your first line of defense against these things. fats and cholesterol are turned over regularly as they are oxidized and damaged by to many sugars and oxygen.

can vegetarians make their own fat and cholesterol? well if they are right about fiber metabolism by bacteria in your gut making short chain fatty acids(aka vinegar anyone) and the body is able to put them together to make their long chain fatty acids probably yes. but how much can one person eat of fruits and veggies beans and whole grains?  how much is enough to make enough sat fat for your cell membranes? ??????

what if your liver is compromised? how will you make cholesterol then? if it is overwhelmed with its many tasks could fall behind? if it does what then? it has the tasks of 600 functions. what if we overwhelm it with to many carbohydrates in a day to many toxins, to many medications etc? then what does the body do to adapt? well you build more fat cells. yes you heard me right. it builds more fat cells.

turns out fat cells do more than store energy and hoarding it, (it seems since using it and losing it seems impossible) it also takes out excess sugar converts to fat to get it out of blood when your insulin resistant, it takes up the old cholesterol to recycle it, it stores fat soluable vitamins to be used at later date by the body especially vita d  which is only made in your skin in the summer and you need it in the winter as well.

so why do I know this and these “experts” dont’? could it be they believe they know the answer already so no need to do additional research? could it be because they will lose their license if they advocate against the american medical associations views?

they also say called saturated fats bad boys. which is really strange considering sat fat are the most resistant to infections, inflammation, protects your cells from such things and takes a long time to go rancid when exposed to oxygen, mircrobes, heat etc. that is why you store energy as sat fat not monounsaturated.  it is where vita a, d, k, calcium are stored for use later or when you run low to often due to a low fat low cholesterol diet. (these vita are in the fat of the animal and milk). by storing these things in sat fat on your body it is protected from rancidity, mircrobs, oxidation etc.

this book has a lot of good points. maybe I will do a different post later about that.
