    kenscircus created a new blog post, Insulin Sync
    In a football game, a receiver must be in sync with the passed ball to catch it. In baseball, the batter's bat must be in sync with the pitched ball. In your car, you want the brakes to be in sync with the brake petal. All of the musicians in a symphony...

    kenscircus created a new blog post, Counting Calories
    I used to believe that one's weight was a simple matter of calories in verses calories out and that calories are calories regardless of source. However, over the years of Type-1 diabetes testing, logging and analyzing, I have learned that it is not that simple. A major lesson learned is that carbohydrate...

    kenscircus created a new blog post, Believe
    Believe
    Relatively early in my Type-1 diabetes adventure I discovered that a low-fat plant based diet was key to full health. This discovery was due to a frantic effort in blood-sugar control for fear of all the debilitating complications that I had witnessed in other diabetics. After discovering the elevated level of health...

    kenscircus created a new blog post, Blood-Sugar Simplified
    While the biological mechanisms of blood-sugar control are indeed complicated, the basics are quite simple: blood-sugar is an equilibrium between supply and consumption. Sugar, specifically glucose, is biology's primary fuel. The drawing above illustrates how blood-sugar is a simple balance between sugar intake and the "burning" of it as a fuel. Consuming...

    kenscircus created a new blog post, Don't Worry... Be Healthy!
    Do you consider yourself health conscious? Do you ever worry about getting enough nutrients? It seems common for the health conscious to seek out foods with the best and most nutrients. In the beginning of my Type-1 diabetes journey , I was completely clueless about nutrition. I knew of the words "protein"...

    kenscircus created a new blog post, I'm Doing Just Fine
    So, how are you doing (health-wise) Do you feel good? Unfortunately, that is a hard question to answer, because "feel-good" is relative - and the reference, itself, is variable. This makes the perception of "feel-good" very nebulous. This realization became profoundly evident to me in the early stages of my Type-1 diabetes...

    kenscircus created a new blog post, Alternative Medicine: Part 1
    A few years ago I was checking out at a local grocery store where I was purchasing some organic apples. The checker asked me if the organic apples were as good as the real ones. I was struck in pause by the question before answering, " the organic apples ARE the real...

    kenscircus created a new blog post, Bland!
    Many people suffer great difficulty transitioning to a Whole Food Plant Based diet because it is perceived as too bland. It feels like a terrible sacrifice! We have five traditionally recognized senses: hearing, vision, touch, smell and taste. Interestingly, each of these senses are adjustable. The perception automatically scales to an equilibrium...
