DAY 60: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


OK, another half pound gone, and it’s OK with me.  Since I started the Vielight 810  three days ago, I have had a bowel movement every morning, which was not happening on the diet alone.  I attribute this to the unclumping of blood platelets and the manufacture of structured water within the body, with the addition of extra energy from the Vielight.  ( See Dr. Gerald Pollack and EZ-water, made by light.)   Whatever the reason, I am grateful.

My fasting glucose is back up (all insulin taken on 11/15 gone now) so we will have to wait for progress on that again.

So here are my stats:

Weight 148.8, FBS 151, Fat% 33.6

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance Tortilla, 2 oz sirloin steak, musrooms, onions, romaine, 5 grapes

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast protein drink, 1 cup Progresso Chickarina Chicken and Meatballs Soup, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 1 dried apricot

Total Calories 796, Total Fat 38 gm, Total Carbs 61 gm, Total Protein 63 gm, Total Fiber 23 gm, Total Net Carbs 38 gm.

DAY 59: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


On the road again….. I lost another half pound this morning.  I’m pleased.  And here is what I have learned so far from this diet.

  1. Even though I already lost 125 pounds, I am still diabetic because I did not get the last of the fat out of my pancreas and liver.  The Newcastle study showed that as little as 1 gram of fat out of the pancreas will reverse diabetes type 2. That is what I am seeing now, and the fat percent is dropping about 3% per month.  I should be done within a month.
  2. Twenty five grams of fiber on 800 calories is an entirely different thing from 25 grams of fiber on 1600 calories.  Movement is much slower through the intestinal tract, and sometimes external forces are needed.  I use natural methods only, like rolling on my tummy, more water and raw veggies, and rubbing magnesium oil on my tummy.  Works every time.
  3. You can indeed lose weight on grocery store food, using protein drinks enough to balance protein and carbs.  And so far, I’ve lost 20.5 pounds on the 800 calories, in 60 days.  Newcastle Study participants lost an average of 22 pounds in two months.  I am convinced the difference lies in those potato chips I ate in the first week!
  4. Now that I am using the Vielight 810, much of my low energy that comes from eating not quite enough food for a long time has disappeared.  In other words, my energy is picking up.  I can hardly wait to see the fasting blood sugar drop.  This morning’s fasting glucose reading is at least in part due to insulin I took day before yesterday.  If my pancreas is not damaged too badly, we should see that fasting glucose number come down with the use of the diet and the light. 
So, here are my stats for today:

Weight 149.2, FBS 128, Fat% 33.6

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  ½ Slim-Fast Protein drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance Tortilla, 3 oz Mistica Ranch Cheez-it Coated Chicken Bites, romaine, 5 grapes

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, 1 cup Progresso LIGHT Chicken and Cheese Enchilada Soup, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 2 dried apricots

Total Calories 792, Total Fat 37 gm, Total Carbs 71 gm, Total Protein 53 gm, Total Fiber 23 gm, Total Net Carbs 48 gm.

DAY 58: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


I lost 1 pound and saw the bottom side of 150 this morning, but the really good news is that my fat percent is way down, by a whole point.  It bears good tidings for tomorrow.  The weight loss has really slowed down, but I have had my first Vielight 810 treatments. 

I had to take 10IU of Lantus yesterday because of a post-prandial high of 200.  My fasting is down as a result.

But my energy level is way up.  The Vielight treatments make my blood cells break up their stickiness and carry more oxygen as an immediate result.  I certainly felt that yesterday, and did my chores with renewed enthusiasm, not easy on 800 calories.  Other immediate benefits are better sleep, as well as reduced glucose readings.  I have not seen that yet, but give it time.

Here are my stats for the day:

Weight 149.6, FBS 139, Fat% 32.6

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance tortilla, 1/4 cup Marketside tuna salad, romaine, 1 dried apricot

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, 1 cup Cugino’s Burgundy French Onion Soup, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, Dole Peach Cup

Total Calories 796, Total Fat 42 gm, Total Carbs 66 gm, Total Protein 45 gm, Total Fiber 23 gm, Total Net Carbs 43 gm.

DAY 57: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


Not good. I have spent the last week bouncing on and off 150 pounds, with no further weight loss.  Luckily, I can outlast it.  And, I had my first Vielight 810 treatment this morning, and will take another 25 minute treatment before bed. 

I won’t bear down on the benefits of the Vielight 810, but I am using it for metabolic enhancement.  You can see all the other benefits by doing your own research.  I think, from the testimonial on You-Tube, that I can expect a significant drop in my A1c within three months.  I won’t be dieting that long, so I will only post the stats and menu for the days I am dieting.  I continue for now.

So, here are my stats:

Weight 150.8, FBS 150, Fat% 34.2

And here is the menu for the day:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance tortilla, 1 grilled link Sam’s Choice Chicken and Apple Sausage, romaine, 5 grapes

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, 1 cup Allessi Split Pea Soup, salad, 5 Toasted Crackers, 1 dried apricot

Total Calories 804, Total Fat 34 gm, Total Carbs 76 gm, Total Protein 61 gm, Total Fiber 26 gm, Total Net Carbs 50 gm.

DAY 56: 800 CAL DIET TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD

Today is the last day of the diet alone, and the scale went up this morning, just to defy me.  Not by much, but I probably won’t make it to 148 by tomorrow morning.  Oh, well, I plan to add the heavy artillery tomorrow in the form of my first Vielight 810 treatments, and stay on the diet until I weigh 140.

The menu pattern is easy and no-cook for the most part.  Thanks for putting up with me while I blog.  Not so exciting on a day to day basis, but the enticement of no insulin will keep me going.  I am pretty sure I am the only one that will be recording results on 800 calories and the Vielight 810.  Science calls.

So, here are my stats:

Weight 149.2, FBS 150, Fat% 34.2

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Shake

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance Tortilla, 2 oz grilled sirloin steak, romaine, 5 grapes

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, 3/4 cup Progresso Chicken Cheese Enchilada soup, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 1 dried apricot

Total Calories 798, Total Fat 43 gm, Total Carbs 55 gm, Total Protein 59 gm, Total Fiber 22 gm, total Net Carbs 33 gm.

DAY 55: 800 CAL DIET TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


I think I am going to hit my goal of 148 pounds in the last 8 weeks of 800 calorie dieting with real food.  I lost one whole pound when I weighed this morning.  Tomorrow, I hope to weigh 148 plus some ounces.  That would be the same as the average weight loss of the original 11 participants in the Newcastle experiment.  They learned a lot in that experiment.  Type 2 diabetes is reversible, and what makes it reverse is the loss of fat from the pancreas and liver.  22 pounds did the trick for those 11 participants.  They all reversed. They learned it only takes 1 gram of fat out of the pancreas to reverse diabetes type 2, through the use of MRI machines as they lost weight.

But not me, not yet.  The encouraging part is for the last two mornings, including today, my fasting blood glucose has come down almost 20 points.  It was 139 this morning and 133 yesterday.  I am at 34% fat, having lost about 3% per month.  Looks like it should take another month to get me down to 31%, which I hope will be enough fat gone.

So, here are my stats for the day:

Weight 149.4   FBS 139, Fat% 34.6

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Control tortilla, 1/4 pkg. Marketside Kung Pao Chicken, romaine, one dried apricot

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, 1 cup Progresso Hearty Chicken & Rotini soup, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 5 grapes

Total Calories 799, Total Fat 34 gm, Total Carbs 73 gm, Total Protein 58 gm, Total Fiber 21 gm, Total Net Carbs 52 gm  .

DAY 54: 800 CAL DIET TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


I have a couple of items to celebrate this morning.  And one to let pass, so to speak.  My items to celebrate include a lowest ever fasting blood glucose reading, and the other item is that my Tanita scale signaled me that I am in the “Normal” Fat Percent range, instead of “Overweight” for the first time.  Other than that, I gained half a pound but we’ll see about that tomorrow. 

Here are my stats for today:

Weight 150.4, FBS 133, Fat% 33.7

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Shake

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance tortilla, 1 link (grilled) Sam’s Choice Chicken Apple Sausage, romaine, 1 dried apricot

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast protein drink, 1 cup Pacific Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 5 grapes

Total Calories 794, Total Fat 35 gm, Total Carbs 68 gm, Total Protein 59 gm, Total Fiber 22 gm, Total Net Carbs 46 gm.

Note:  I got the Pacific Roasted Red pepper and Tomato Soup from Vitacost.com.
