ay yay yay....well its 4:49 am and I've been up since 4:20 am wired!
my 6 lb order of chia seeds arrived from Amazon Tues night (6 lbs 1 oz to be specific - glad to see they are generous). Also came with a 1/2 oz sample of white chia seed which my oldest daughter and I devoured that night just eating them straight. Yesterday morning my blood sugar was 96 and I'm normally 105 to 115 prior to breakfast. I cut my morning dose of insulin back by 25%.....hungry like crazy by dinner and snacked before dinner (and while preparing dinner - also snacking on chia seeds) so I didn't test my blood sugar as it would be off anyways but I cut my dinner insulin dosage back by 25% just to be safe. Also snacked on chia seeds after dinner (fighting my daughter over them again).
Ended up skipping my evening treadmill work and watching a movie with the wife and kids that they had been begging me to watch with them for awhile (Despicable Me). Took my normal dosage of insulin that I've been taking every night since late November/early December. Well couple hours later in bed while talking to my wife started to feel a low coming. Stumbled downstairs and checked the sugar - 36. Lowest I've ever been previous to this was low 60's. With panic stricken wife who had just been cussing me for not letting her help me downstairs....I proceeded to medicate with glasses of juice, handfuls of marshmallows, chocolate chips, candy bars, and whatever other high sugar item that was within reach. 1/2 gallon of sweat and 15 minutes later I had my blood sugar up to 72. Then the chills hit so I went back to bed.
This morning I was 190 with nasty upset stomach (hypercharged all the bad bacteria in my stomach with the overdose of sugar). So here I sit typing this out....eating a bowl of yogurt sprinkled with chia seeds preparing for 90 minutes on the treadmill this morning to work off the sugar.
Needless to say but I'll be monitoring my blood sugar much more closely over the next couple of days.....
....and Dennis....one thing at a time! I'm very interested in Kefir....but I gotta get the chia seed deal worked out first! Thank you for bringing it up!
In the book I bought off Amazon "Magic of Chia" to study up on this before jumping into it.....they said you would feel less hungry and one reason why people lost weight while taking it. I had the opposite reaction....but in thinking about and analyzing my results (especially in light of last night's experience) I think it has made the insulin more effective thus making me feel hungry earlier (burning up the previous meal faster).
Fascinating seeds! 600% more calcium than equivalent amount of milk. Lots of boron. Perfect Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio (best oil in the world). And multiple other benefits....
If you really want to change things, you first need to come to terms with just how corrupt and evil the current system is.
An incomplete understanding of the situation will lead to half baked solutions that accomplish nothing!
