"Diet food can be better, richer, and more sumptuous than most everyday foods," says Dr. Robert Atkins, author of the massive bestseller, Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution. Carbohydrates, in his opinion, are the root of metabolic evil and the source of hyperinsulinemia, a condition that makes it next to impossible to lose weight. Billed as a companion to his Diet Revolution book, this collection of recipes focuses on ultralow-carbohydrate dishes. His anticarb stance leads to some unconventional dietary advice: "Remember that, as a rule, the lower the fat content of a milk product, the higher its carbohydrate grams. Use cream, not skim milk; use sour cream, not yogurt."
While these recipes are certainly quick and easy to prepare and feature easy-to-find ingredients, some are very high in fat (Zabaglione, Crab and Avocado Salad, Ham and Cheese Sandwiches, Baked Eggs in Bacon Rings). While it may be true that fat is flavor and is necessary to some extent to keeping blood sugar on an even keel, these recipes won't be helpful for those who are watching their cholesterol or are on similarly restricted diets.

My, how the tables have turned...

My, how the tables have turned...

"It's like Numbers is the official diabetes language. My meter speaks to me in Numbers, food talks to me in Numbers, I communicate with my insulin pen in Numbers."


I'm not gonna lie there are some good things diabetes has done for me. Yes, I just said that. There are a couple of things I have benefitted from that came gratis with this autoimmune disease.

1) Nutrition - I never NEVER cared about nutrition. EVER. I didn't have any reason to. Everybody always told me to stuff my face since I've always had a hard time gaining weight.

We had a 3 part nutrition lesson as part of a biology class I took and I went the first day and the nutritionist that came in peed me off so much that I skipped the next 2 classes. She mainly tried to make everyone paranoid about eating anything containing fat or sodium and all the little weight conscious girlies freaked out about it. If any of them developed eating disorders within the past 3 years it's because of her. And yes, I do realize how harsh that sounds.

That woman is also the reason why I didn't like nutritionists. AT ALL! I usually don't judge people like that and that fast. But she just really rubbed me the wrong way and I saw all the panicked looks on all my classmates' faces as they were trying to figure out in their lil heads what besides water they could actually still consume without gaining weight or introducing "poison" to their bodies.

I raised my hand and said "Ok I can see how some people have slower metabolisms than others and that they do deposit more fat when they eat a cheeseburger than, say,me but is there a slight possibility that people just think and worry too much and get paranoid by believing that just by looking at a cake they gain 15lbs. Can that emotional attitude affect their bodies?"

Oh boy did she flip! She started almost yelling and I had to try so hard not to laugh. That was the last time I saw her. I thought it was ridiculous, like I said. She did not teach nutrition, she taught fear and paranoia.

fast forward 3 years. Enter diabetes.

Ironically, all of a sudden, I HAD to become a nutritional specialist (because that's what we diabetics and parents of CWD (thanks Tim!!!) are, among nurses, humanoid artificial organs, calculators, and pharmacists (ever check out your betes shelf/drawer? mine looks like I'm a medical junk supplier).

I had to learn about carbs and fats and proteins etc. Now I have to admit some things I already knew. I am not afraid to admit that I am a huge biology nerd, always wondering how things work inside the body. But still. I HAD to sit down with a nutritionist....me....ugh...I was beyond thrilled, let me tell ya...BUT this one was cool. Friendly. Not trying to talk me into fearing food but just laid out the basics and explained that I could still eat pretty much anything I wanted, in moderation, as long as I count my carbs faithfully and bolus accordingly. Well, that restored my faith in nutritionists and that was that. :)

2) Math - Remember how much I adore and appreciate Disney? Probably not...I like never talk about it. But anyways take the love I have for Disney and flip it to the opposite and that's how I feel about math. I don't like math. It's boring (unless it's about calculating TOD (Time of Death) of murder victims, then it comes in quite handy (yeah I'm a forensic nerd)) but other than that...nope.

Carb counting/figuring out bolus should be a sport. We should have competitions. I have gotten ridiculously fast at head math. Please refrain from addressing me as "math geek" though, because I have to agree with Justin Russo (David Henrie) here and say that Idon'tlike math geek, I much prefer "arithmetic buff "

Seriously though, I mean it was bound to happen, I work with numbers every day. There are so many numbers everywhere! It's like Numbers is the official diabetes language. My meter speaks to me in Numbers, food talks to me in Numbers, I communicate with my insulin pen in Numbers. So I had no choice but to master that language, as well. (I speak 4 languages so what's one more?)

BTW this up there was some calculations I did for some berry pie mi madrina had made and I was trying to figure out how many carbs were approximately in one slice. I ended up at 148 after 2hrs so I guess I was spot on :)

Yay for: new learned skills
Yay for: JONAS L.A. the Soundtrack. OMJ it's amazing!!!! like totally rockin'! I did not expect it to be so good honestly!
Yay for: music

So tell me, how have you benefitted from diabetes?

(BTW - Jonas fans.....the title of this post probably had you rolling. I LOVE that video it's so silly :) LOL)

Fast Food - The Trailer

Fast Food - The Trailer

I couldn't rightly have a movie without a trailer and in the tradition of the best trailers a) I didn't tell too much of the story, b) I didn't use the best dialog / jokes / gags and c) it has just a little bit of everything from the film.

Fast Food will be making its World Premiere at the 2009 Anchorage International Film Festival.
