After explaining to someone yesterday that I have pretty much figured out how to beat Type II Diabetes without taking any type of medication they asked the question, “How did you do that”? The answer that came from my mouth flowed so easily and natural that I actually shocked myself. I said, “30 minutes treadmill, 30 minutes bowflex and a paleo diet every single day”. Well those of you that have been following my blog know of all the struggles that I have had and will continue to have, but after thinking about it, it really does come down to those 3 basic things.
I am by no means a medical or nutritional expert and I have no diploma’s or certifications that would legally provide me with the power to diagnose a disease or provide professional advice to others. The best I can do is simply tell my story and hope that it will be enough inspiration to get others to move in a positive direction to discover their own answers to living with this condition.
It seems that just about everyone I speak with either has Type II Diabetes or knows someone dealing with this condition and they usually ask me for more information. It is then that I realize that I could carry this discussion for hours and I often times think about sending them to my website, but then I think that I really don’t have any information completely spelled out in a single article about how I did it. I only offer a daily journal of my triumphs and set backs each day. So I thought about writing this article and soon realized that it could soon turn into a small book. I was thinking maybe a series of articles may be better, or even a video blog. Why do I need to walk everyday? Why use a bowflex and how do I use it? And what is a paleo diet and how can it help me? See what I mean. There have literally been hundreds of books written about the paleo diet alone by some of the most brilliant authors in the field of nutrition.
So where do I start? Do I create this in a form of a story? I have always found that I myself remember things better when certain facts are built inside the form of a story. I don’t know yet, but it does give me a lot to think about.
