Glucose Clearance

?My high sugar diet has really improved my glucose clearance. My 1-hour post-prandial readings decreased from 120’s to the upper 90’s. My waking temps are 97.8, up to 98.4 after eating (that’s during the first half of my cycle, I get even hotter the second half). Plus I’m happy, energetic, sleeping well and waking up spontaneously and well rested at about 6am. I’m...

I mean, with my mom’s large television in front of me I too can scarcely find time for anything. Even sleep! I mean, I just had to watch the Nuggets lose to the Lakers the other...

The New 180DegreeHealth

I took most of the last two weeks off for a little reflection. I feel like we have come to somewhat of a crossroad at 180D, one where many of the old tangents are falling away. The roots of 180 started with a pretty firm boner about natural diets, the diets of our ancestors and of traditional cultures ? taking it on faith that if we did as they did, disease would cower and tremble in fear of its...
