Quoted from 815


last fasting blood sugar was 90 but I don't do it daily. That was at the doctor's office.. It was lower last year. 78

Those numbers are exceptional!  I only mentioned it as you said something about keeping your insulin steady.  

There are quite a few BG monitors out there today that are inexpensive and are quite accurate.  It's a great tool to help you figure out what may be causing sugar spikes and lows and teach you which foods you react well to and those that have negative effects for you.  IMO, it'd be comforting for you to know how your body reacts to various sweeteners.  

My numbers always came within the broad range whenever tested in the past.  It took just one high fasting glucose number for them to finally say "Houston I think we've got a problem here".  Although I'd been telling them the same for 15+ years.  Having a good fasting BG one day doesn't mean it'll be the same the next nor the day after that.

Monitoring has saved my life, along with Dr. D's wealth of knowledge and research, and has made food choices much easier for me.  I've now figured out what causes the extremes with my blood chemistry thanks to the above.

I am always surprised at how good fresh figs make me feel...  I started picking and eating figs for this year, earlier this week and it just helps the digestion and elimination tremendously.  Even though I was still eating canned figs from last year, the fresh ones are just better.  It must be the fresh enzymes or the balance of all the good in them...

I love figs. I wish I had a fig tree.. Do they grow in the north east?   I love turkish figs.  My favorite cookie was fig newtons..

Seems my burning in my stomach was caused by wheat.   I stopped the wheat and 99% of the burning and indigestion is gone.. I had some spelt yesterday and I didn't feel good.  Unless it's the seasonal allergies and the wheat is aggravating it? Anyone have a wheat reaction only in the summer? sigh..I'm in denial.

Mayflowers, I understand what you're going through. I have a wheat reaction all the time because of my nonnieness. My Swami gives me sprouted wheat and spelt but it needs to be 100% pure and it's really hard to find in stores. Most of the store-bought products have hidden fillers of regualr wheat because it's cheaper. Now I just stay away from it all... unless I make it myself (and that's rare). I might make my own spelt or sprouted wheat bread 1 or 2 times/ year. Most of the time I just focus on the other beneficial carbs like rice, amaranth, flax bread, millet, oatmeal, rice cakes, etc.

ABJoe, I love fresh figs, too. I can only find them fresh around summer and fall when they're in season but I adore them. I never ate a fig until the BTD and I see that it has something in it that I need.

Benefits of figs...
http://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/fruit/health-benefits-of-figs-or-anjeer.html

I have read that with heavy mulching, figs can be grown in freezing climates.  Here is a web site that discusses growing figs in cold climates...
http://gardening.about.com/b/2010/01/27/gardening-question-of-the-week-can-i-grow-figs.htm

I've found that I need to avoid all wheat, but I can eat a spelt muffin or two per week.  I feel best using quinoa and rice for my grains.

Discovery is so rewarding!

Wheat wrecks havoc on my digestive system also.  

Gluten-free steel cut oats just might allow you to reintroduce "oatmeal" back into your breakfast choices.  Just a thought.

As long as you don't have previous damage done from other lectins from your previous diet, the wheat will be good for you.  You should either pick the BTD or GTD diet to follow, though, as they are different programs...  Depends on the answers you provide for the test.

I have a tremendous amount of damage from my previous diet and wheat anything seems to add to the abdominal pain...  I am currently using quinoa and rice for the majority of my grain carbohydrates.  I sometimes add in some oatmeal, amaranth, and flax seed in small quantities, though.

I'm not SWAMI'fied, but it is avoid per the book and I know I don't do well with it from when I was following BTD and ate it several times...  The body told me pretty quickly that I didn't need to eat more!

Millet is a black dot for me. I eat it once in awhile. Dr. Nash said I could have a bacterial overgrowth causing the burning..from too many Z paks. So, I'm on Gastro D and a few other things

I think this is due to really poor stomach acid. HCL and coffee has been bringing back my ability to eat it. SWAMI may think I am a reactor but I am not sure because I need to change the caffeine thing on it.

I get strange effects from consuming millet. I just tend to stay away even if I think it taste good.

I have no idea why Millet is a black dot for me. It doesn't bother me. I make a mean curried millet salad..  
I'll have to ask why I was not prescribed hcl.  Unless it's very strong and my stomach was irritated as it was.
I'm feeling a little better. I was using the Gastro D but I was not taking in on an empty stomach. Now I am with the polyflora and tons of yogurt. I'm also going to make fermented vegetables.. ABNoway had a link for a starter for it that I bought.

I stopped the antacids. I'm using licorice solid extract, Gastro D and Deflect and I'm also taking quercitin with bromalain from Now.  I can't take NAP's bromalain because the dosage is too high.
500 mg gives me a migraine. It has to be less than 500 mg.  It's much better. I also stopped eating/drinking hot foods. (Trying to balance my Pitta dosha)

Wow, fresh figs?  Do you go out and pick them from the vine?  That would be ... ahem ... "divine".  

But, yeah, I hear ya, aren't figs awesome?  I love the dried mission figs from the Co-op.  It is my favorite dried fruit.  If I could pick them fresh I'd probably pass out from the pleasure.

I used to love Fig Newtons as a kid.  Hmmm... homemade fig newtons with spelt flour.  Now I need to hunt down a recipe around here for that.

Yes, you could.  I made raspberry jelly newtons once, but the bread part was too crumbly.

Yes, I pick them from the tree (about 20 ft. tall, due to topping)...  My figs are about 2-3" diameter and full of sugar...  I made my own fig newtons from fresh figs, but the fig flavor is very subtle in these - it is mostly just sweet.  I now either eat them fresh or can them for winter eating.  

I spread a fresh fig on a rice cake or split the fig open and fill the center of both halves with peanut butter...  So many ways to be creative...

Peanut butter?   That's interesting.  I think they're good on cottage cheese.  But then, I think any fruit is good on cottage cheese.  Or ricotta.

I learned as a child to pull each fig apart before biting into it.  Sometimes bees crawl up inside and hide there.
