Health Science 101 Guidelines

Greetings! Welcome to Health Science.

Here's where we talk about the latest fad diets, the advantages of vegetarianism, the joy of exercise and good health. Like everywhere else at Tweb our decorum rules apply.

This is a place to exchange ideas and network with other health conscience folks, this isn't a forum for heated debate.

    Thanks for posting shuny. Is your's type 2? Is it because of some defective organ or was it brought on by diet? If it's the latter, I don't know why they ever labeled it diabetes. Do you? From all I have read it is totally reversible. So it's not like a disease or cancer, it just too much sugar running around in the blood.

    And the sad thing is that big Pharma is right there to offer drugs, so people can continue eating pretzels and stay on the couch. Of course there always are exceptions where drug intervention is the only answer and I'm not talking about that.

    So how is it going for ya as you work on bringing your diabetes under control? I found that as I went about losing weight thru the low carb route, that I actually like the process, the food menu. Yet I still get sad that I can't tear into a bag of chips and have a few beers at times. But I'm getting used to not being able to that. It takes time. A life long smoker isn't going to just waltz away from those cancer sticks.

    Have a strong day my friend.

    I just got home and was hoping for some post to respond to. I looked here and saw my name as the last post. I said nooooooah!. Yeah...that's what I said. I was pretty bummed. I live in a small world. It seems to be getting smaller. I know I am not that important. Why do I want to be important? Or...I know that I am important to God, but still...I find myself trying to be important to His creatures...more than caring that I'm important to Him. Ok...this is all in the "immediate"...but in the long run, I really only care what God thinks.

    Especially if I get in an accident and am thrown from my car into the street. You know...you're laying there busted up and bleeding on the asphalt and thinking this is probably it! I'm quite certain that at that time I would not think about my thread at Tweb. Nice talking to you guys. Thnx

    Wow...I went from feeling great, to getting angry. I don't like this day. I don't like my job today. I don't like the customer. Mucho work, little money. But I should be thankful. Why am I not as thankful as I should be? My sins are forgiven. Now why doesn't that just trump everything everyday? Why am I still a victim of circumstances? I should be happy.

    Good morning friends and supporters. I had a good diet and exercise day yesterday. I passed on my one nightly treat, a glass of red wine. But then I got so hungry after dinner, that I raided the bacon and cheese stash. That might sound horrific to some, but actually, even with my late night raid, I did not spike insulin release or go to bed with high blood sugar.

    I gave my body building materials, maybe a few calories too many...whatever. The scale is stuck this morning, figures. But then again, since I do my cardio and weights faithfully, I continue to have body composition change. Swapping fat for muscle, but not showing up on the scale.

    Anyway, I feel great this morning. I have never heard of a bacon hangover

    I am currently drinking my bullet proof coffee. No one ever asked me what that is. It is a new fad, but nothing new. The people that live in cold mountainous areas have long drank a version of BPC (bullet proof coffee). You won't find it at Starbucks...or maybe you can now. I never go there anymore.

    Who's trying to get healthier now? Who is sick and tired of being sick and tired. Please come forward

Prepackaged just isn't as good as something I've made with my hands.
    Well good for you. You got a nice smart lifestyle going for ya. Hope you appreciate it all your life.

    I've been using livestrong's myplate app for a while now. I'm 6'0", at 206lb now, lost 15lbs since Nov. Shooting for 185. Daily diet tracking (every calorie!) and exercise (5%-10% incline treadmill walking or recumbent bike, plus weight routine) are my preferred methods.

    I'll happily post regularly in this thread if it helps motivate!
    You are happily requested to post often in here so you can encourage me. Sounds like you got something good going. Whats your daily meal plan look like?

    myfitnesspal is an app. I have it on my iPad, wife has it on her iPod. It uses the camera as a bar code scanner, so if you buy Twinkies it makes it easy to enter them in. Wifey will make soup or a meal, enter in everything that she put into it, then tell it how many portions it as, and voila! we have entered in a home-cooked meal. It also has an exercise spot where you can enter in what you did, and it will tell you how many calories it was. [Not that it's 100%, but it's better than guessing on calorie burn.]

    Small changes over time seem to work well. Although, just before Thanksgiving I gave up all sugar to see if it would fix an issue I was having. Afterwards I lost quite a bit of my sweet tooth. I've started eating various forms of sugar again, so I know it's an easy thing to pick back up; but cold turkey for a season, while hard, might yield some change too.

I think my activity level rose though, and the desire to lose weight waned, so I haven't lost anything for several months. Working on that bit, want to lose another 20. I think just 10 more would move me out of the overweight BMI catagory.

    I suspect my nightly ration of rum is not helping.
    Hey supton...welcome aboard. And a shout out to the rest of you, whom I plan to respond to. I don't know what a fitnesspal is, but whatever works huh? Yeah, if the interest wanes...it's pretty much curtains.

    We can all lose focus, get into something else and forget about our health. As a Christian I might rationalize by saying "bodily exercise profits little..." (that's a verse for those who don't know). On the other hand, the body is also the temple of the Holy Spirit for Christians.

    I just got sick and tired of being sick and tired. Or fat and tired. I was in a rut and ruts are hard to get out of, because we get so used to our props that we shudder at living without our pizza or our rum. Not that we can't eat or drink those things, but they tend to take over, define us as people. And we wear them around everyday and often feel pretty crappy being too heavy on our feet.

    I will have more to say...just popped in from work...to grab a quick kale smoothie....it's really good BTW.

    But lets go people...lets get in shape!!! It's great to feel better....sleep better...wake up better
