I buy it. 811rv makes sense. Read both The China Study &
your book, Dr. Graham, and watched numerous videos on

Am transitioning, and definitely feeling better. But having
a bit of strategy concern, due to Diabetes(Type 2). (Got
many of the diabetic effects -- neuropathy, ED, reduced
eyesight, low energy / concentration, etc.)

Have been eating lots of fruit, and loving it. Salads also.
Then, after a bit, falling uncontrollably asleep for a
while. Seems my blood sugar is really spiking, despite the
use of insulin. *ugh* I'm talking in high 400s or more.

Diabetes has trashed my teeth to the point that I can't chew
crunchy stuff like celery or even apples very well, so I've
just started blending it & other vegetable stuff in V8

So I've come up with a theory for a strategy. Please tell
me if it is on track or not:

(1) If my blood sugar is up, then I am NOT in need of lots
of calories for the day -- at least until I check again at
the next meal, so go easy on the fruit. At least as long as
I don't get cravings driving me to the closest donut shop.
*grin* Just doesn't make sense to use insulin to drive
BlSug down just so I can eat another high carb meal & run it
(2) However, feel free to "fill up" on as much veggies,
especially greens, as I like. Very low cal and high in
vitamins & minerals.
(3) Check again at next mealtime, and repeat until body
begins responding rapidly / normally to sugar intake, and
then raise fruit quantity accordingly.

(3a) Alternate: Not much sugar, until blood sugar falls to
normal range well below 100, so pseudo fast. Then eat a
higher starch meal of fruit. At next meal, if blood sugar
is up, revert to veggies until down. Seems like time
between fruit feasts should diminish as time passes & body
becomes healthier.

Any suggestions or corrections?
