How do you retrain yourself on your eating habits? My doctor scared me that my blood sugar level recently shows that I am at risk for diabetes. I am going to the Healing Center for prayer for prevention of this disease and for strength to begin to change my eating habits.
We don't have diabetes in our family. My aunt developed it later in life because of overweight and didn't inherit it. She warded it off with diet and not insulin.
I had a bad metabolism change after my change of life. It seems that about 30 pounds just want to stay on me in spite of exercise and moderate eating habits where I don't overindulge. It seems that I am not metabolizing sugar and fat like I used to. Could this be causing a problem?
My doctor said that it's not real serious. The normal range for a blood sugar level is up to 100 and my level was 104. I'm taking a psychotropic drug that causes the sugar level to go up and it could be the drug. I need full healing of manic-depression so I don't need the drug.
But regardless, sugar is a poison. Our consumption of sugar is a problem in our culture and leads to disease. It wouldn't hurt to cut it out.
How do you say goodbye to chocolate? How do you begin to rid yourself of sweets and lower your carbs? It's so extreme. I love to eat pancake breakfasts with bacon. I love original Dove chocolate bars. I think I use food as a way to cope with life and maybe it's a crutch.
