DAY 76: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


Ok, some guests arrived unexpectedly, and this is not the time to continue dieting.  I have lost 25 pounds, but I have not resolved the diabetes issue.  Between guests and the holidays, I just don’t have the time to pursue it.  So, I will be coming back in January, to do another 800 calorie diet to lose the weight I know I will gain. In the meantime, I will be adding low carb foods and portion controlling what I do in an effort not to regain much weight.  Stuff life cheese, eggs and nuts and more veggies will be added to the 800 calorie diet, in the same format.  No bread, just tortillas, keep up the protein, add blood sugar remedies as needed.  I will be going back up on my regular insulin, as needed. I hope not much.

Anyway, this has been a fun elevator ride down, and I do encourage others to go on the 800 calorie diet.  I also encourage the use of the Vielight 810.   I am glad to have gone through this experience and I will continue in January.  It is not that uncomfortable to lose weight this way.

I am adding calories up to 1000 today, but keeping net carbs below 30.

In short, I am adding 1 chicken sausage link to the basic diet dinner, with one ounce cheese.  I am adding 2 cups popcorn for lunch, along with the usual diet lunch.  Never forget green drink, raw veggies, and protein up.

We will post a chart of my weight loss, so do please check back again soon.  Good luck to all of us who want to try to put diabetes T2 into remission.

DAY 75: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


Well, at least I did not gain any weight.  My fat percent is up, though, so I will have to look for another day for weight loss.  I can still outlast this. I am giving it until Dec. 15th, or 90 days on this diet.  After that, Christmas, New Years, and a new round of dieting is for me.

I get the feeling that the end of this diet will not see me in remission for diabetes.  That is OK, my pancreas has had a lot of surgery and damage.  .

I am happy to have lost the weight, and I am also happy to have the opportunity to rebuild my diet from the ground up.  I am keeping the format of 800 calories, and adding calories to it from starchy veggies, eggs, cheese, etc.  I am also happy to have shown that you can use real food plus a basic protein drink to lose the weight.  And I hope the menus come in handy for anyone else who wants to try.  And I am ecstatic about the Vielight 810.  It can continue improving my metabolism from here on.

So, here we go until Dec. 15th.  Here are my stats for today:

Weight 145.4    FBS 127 (10 IU insulin after lunch yesterday)   Fat% 33.6

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance tortilla, 3 oz Mistica Ranch Cheez-it Coated Chicken Bites, romaine, raw veggies, Dole No Sugar Mandarin Orange Cup

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, salad, 5 Toasted Crackers, 6 walnut halves, 5 grapes

Total Calories 804, Total Fat 42 gm, Total Carbs 65 gm, Total Protein 51 gm, Total Fiber 23 gm, Total Net Carbs 42 gm.

DAY 74: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


I seem to be bouncing around with 1/2 pound variation with no real weight loss this morning.  I can outlast this, though.

I wanted to talk a little about the fact that more and more people will learn that Type 2 diabetes is reversible, and give the 800 calorie diet a try.  Of course, I can recommend it, but I feel it is worth the money to buy the Vielight 810 as well.  Aside from reports of diabetic metabolism improving among customers, the Vielight 810 also can help with the other co-morbidities of diabetes, the neuropathy, blood pressure, and even depression.  I really feel that just about everyone will want one when they learn what it can do.  Of course, there are varying responses to the Vielight.  But there are no varying responses to the 800 calorie diet, so use both tools for maximum effect.  That is my plan.  It gives me courage on the days I don’t lose weight, like today.

So, here are my stats:

Weight:  145.4  FBS 146  Fat% 32.9

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:   Mission Carb Balance Tortilla, 1 pc. Van De Kamps Breaded Fish for Sandwiches, romaine, raw veggies

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, salad, 5 Toasted Crackers, 4 pecan halves, 5 grapes

Total Calories 796, Total Fat 44 gm, Total Carbs 62 gm, Total Protein 48 gm, Total Fiber 21 gm, Total Net Carbs 41 gm.

DAY 73: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


There was a small amount of weight loss this morning.  I can’t explain either the small weight gain yesterday or the small weight loss today.  It is all in the normal course of weight loss, I think, and I am on my way again with 1/2 pound gone.

Now that we know Diabetes T2 can be reversed, I have no choice but to pursue this to the end, which hopefully will be with the loss of a few more pounds.  I will be adding calories from low glycemic foods after I hit the last of the diet.  This is really the hardest part.  Not eating food is not nearly so hard as eating consciously.  Either way, I will have reduced need for insulin because I will not be allowing so much sugar and refined carbs.  And of course, I will be really happy to have lost the weight, so I will maintain it with new vision, and of course, my new ally, the Vielight 810.

So, here are my stats for today:

Weight 144.8    FBS 129 (10 IU insulin yesterday after lunch)   Fat% 32.6

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  ½ Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance tortilla, 2 oz Jack Daniels Thinly Sliced Brisket or 2 oz roast beef, romaine, raw veggies, 1 dried apricot

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 5 walnut halves, 5 grapes

Total Calories 804, Total Fat 45 gm, Total Carbs 64, Total Protein 47 gm, Total Fiber 22 gm, Total Net Carbs 42 gm.

DAY 72: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


Well, I guess we are taking a small break today, as my weight has gone up a little.  That is OK.  This whole diet has felt like a fast elevator ride down on my weight.  I just have to decide what floor to get off on, especially now that I am combining it with two Vielight 810 treatments per day.  I have been giving that some thought.

I had originally thought I would stop dieting at 140 pounds.  Now I am seeing that I need to diet until I reach the healthy fat percent for women over 50.  The healthy fat percent for women in general is 20 – 27%, and for women over 50 it is as much as 31%.  I am going to quit dieting when I am a solid 31%, not just a temporary flash reading on my Tanita scale.  The Vielight testimonials mention weight loss among users, so there will be room after the diet to let the Vielight 810 do it’s work and not go underweight.  Imagine.

Don’t forget to take the Amazing Greens drink today!

So, here are my stats for today:

Weight 145.4     FBS 145 (10IU insulin yesterday after lunch)    Fat% 33.4

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance Tortilla, 1 link Sam’s Choice Chicken and Apple Sausage, romaine, raw veggies, small apple

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, salad, 5 Toasted Crackers, 5 walnut halves, 5 grapes

Total Calories 795, Total Fat 40 gm, Total Carbs 65 gm, Total Protein 55 gm, Total Fiber 24 gm, Total Net Carbs 41 gm.

DAY 71: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


Oh, yes, the weight loss continues.  I lost almost another pound last night.  So the weight loss did not stop with the salt weight.

Speaking of salt, I have thought about the whole salt issue.  I have questions.  Why did I lose weight on salty soups for the first 7 weeks of the diet and have it stop for a week before the Vielight?  Why the sudden sensitivity to salt?

The answer for salt problems is always potassium.  They must be in balance for the cells in the body.  Potassium takes stuff out of the cells, and salt takes it in.  The simple answer is I may have had a severe potassium deficiency.  That would be the reason for sudden uptake of water weight on one meal.  A potassium deficiency could also be the reason for week 7 with no weight loss.  No way to get the stuff out because of a potassium deficiency.

So, I am adding a green drink daily.  I am using Amazing Greens Super Greens Original, with 30 calories per serving, available at Vitacost.com.  And I am adding raw veggies beyond the romaine at lunch.  There is always a salad for dinner, as well as fruit and nuts.  That should be enough with the salty soup taken out.  After I get my potassium levels up, I can probably lose weight on soup again.

Also, about the Vielight 810 and detox, I am pretty sure that since I am losing weight rapidly, the fat cells that are destroyed dump their toxins.  Many fat cells all at once dumping their toxins create detox symptoms.  Now I am quite sure that the waste products from the 800 calorie diet are coming out at an advanced rate compared to someone using the Vielight 810 without the diet. This is providing I don't eat too much salt, and add more potassium right now.

So, here are my stats:

Weight 144.6   FBS 152   Fat% 32.9

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink
LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance Tortilla, 1/4 cup Marketside Tuna Salad, romaine, raw veggies, Dole Mandarin Orange No Sugar Added Mandarin Orange cup

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 5 pecan halves, 5 grapes

DAY 70: 800 CAL DIET PLUS VIELIGHT 810 TO PUT DIABETES T2 INTO REMISSION WITH REAL FOOD


Wow!  Another pound gone!  That makes up for the salt problem at Thanksgiving, and fast work!  Remember when I went through Week 7 without the Vielight 810 and had no weight loss?  It is really doing it’s job now.  I suspect the weight loss will slow down some tomorrow, when the task is to lose actual fat instead of just water from too much salt.

By the way, I emailed Lew Lim, the inventor of the Vielight.  I asked if there was a detox associated with it, and he replied that it effects people differently, but that detox had been reported.  I bet the combination of 800 calories and the light is making the detox greater.

And finally, I read an article that said that 80% of the weight you lose comes out in the form of your exhaled breath, and 20% is the normal excretory functions.  So, I guess we would have to include breathing out as an excretory function.

Here are my stats:

Weight 145.4   FBS 149  Fat% 33

And here is the menu:

BREAKFAST:  1/2 Slim-Fast Protein Drink

LUNCH:  Mission Carb Balance tortilla, 1/4 package Marketside Kung Pao Chicken, romaine, 2 dried apricots

DINNER:  1 whole Slim-Fast Protein Drink, salad, 5 Toasted crackers, 5 pecan halves, 5 grapes
