You are an inspiration to me for sure. I hear you about being a carb addict. I had a nurse in my class not long ago and he chided me about the carb / gluten thing. He said "no one ever died from eating a piece of bread." Of course that's true -- no one ever died from that first cigarette either or that first taste of whiskey. He then went on to say that "you low carbers are going to have serious heart problems." I asked him what were the markers I should be looking at -- he replied "LDL / HDL triglycerides etc." I told him my triyglycerides dropped in half on low carb, my HDL doubled and my total cholesteral dropped by a significant amount and like you Ken my BG reads in the normal range -- then he looked annoyed and changed the subject.

Well done and thanks for the encourageing post.
