Blood Glucose – fasting – 9:00am – 73, 44th day in a row below 100.

Daily Workout –Shoulders, stationary bike

Drank a pre-workout protein shake; for lunch ate 2 1 1/2 cups of tuna salad and 3 slices plantains; skipped dinner

Ate lunch too late, so I didn’t feel like eating dinner.  Picked up a 7-day cleansing system from my local health food store; I’ll start it tomorrow and give details/results as the week progresses.

Everything is going great; I am very pleased with my progress.  The metformin dosage has been cut in half, and the glucose remains under control.  I have lost 42 pounds over 49 days, and with proper rest I feel strong.  My food costs have not increased by switching to better quality foods.  Overall I am very pleased with the decision to adopt this lifestyle. 🙂  Since this is actually the halfway point in the experiment, I expect to post some pictures this week.
