After just 3 days of laying off of the workouts I am seeing positive results in both my morning glucose numbers and significant drops in body weight. Just the simple fact that my body is burning fat without the carbohydrates is enough for me to realize that taking these workout vacations at times will be necessary. This routine too I will have to learn to incorporate into my overall plan to keep a balance approach to fighting Type II Diabetes. Who thought in their wildest dreams that long periods of rest are also important to staying healthy. The truth is that you can only keep up the pace of demanding energy from athletic performance without extra carbohydrates for so long, and when you get hungry you must feed the body. When this happens I have two choices, I can give into the hunger and eat extra carbohydrates, or I can lay off of the workouts for a while. I must learn how to read this and know when it is time to take a rest.
This is yet another reason for not going too far into writing my book just yet. My overall method of fighting Type II Diabetes must be based on strategies to create the method of the overall plan. I am still continuing to learn these strategies and will continue until it becomes a personal science. Until I completely understand and am working this method for a long period of time can I present it as a true method.
The elements that I use in my battle which include a low carbohydrate diet, weight lifting and cardio exercise, a life of reduced stress and proper rest are easy to understand. What isn’t so easy to understand is the specific overall balance of these elements and how to incorporate them into a full 1 year routine. This I will be working on and I will be reviewing my notes to construct what I believe to be the answer.
Although I am eager to get this message out there in the form of a book, I will not create a glimpse of hope to anyone If I myself know that it is not 100% true. There have been many books written about how different things will reverse the effects of Type II Diabetes like a vegan diet, exercise and a paleo lifestyle and all three do make excellent points, but what I am learning is that it is not as easy as just one. There are so many other factors that are involved in the daily routines that play into the factor of the difference between high blood sugars and low blood sugars.
