30 Bananas a Day!

My friend is 68, aprox 50lbs or more over weight, 'limp', and diabetic...he has an open mind and is tryong...I keep telling him to try for yourself, don't just listen to the doctors (or even me)...try it out and see...

this is his email form this morning (yes he is still making big mistakes according to 811...i will soon tell him about food combination and sleep...but again, he is trying...bless his heart)

''Yesterday I had a banana, some strawberries and some blueberries for breakfast. I had a falafel-in-pita sandwich for lunch. I had some of the Trader Joe chopped veggie snack tray w/ salad dressing for dinner. I went to bed ~0130, after SNL. I slept like a baby until 0630, and woke up feeling fine (no nausea). My fasting blood sugar this morning was 74 (a little low). I had 3 bananas for breakfast. I feel energetic. Interested in what my blood sugar will be at 0930.''

Kristen,

I no how u feel...i had another friend who was obese...really huge, smoked and drank...one of the nicest guys ever, but I was too grossed out by all his complaints and his idea of being 'good' was to drink lite beer...fuk me! How can you watch someone drink, smoke, eat s*** and have trouble walking and brething. I didn't even visit him in teh hospital when he had a 'mild' heart attack. his wife killed herself and it is just him and 4 adult kids who all live with him. They all smoke and eat crap...it is gross...i had to remove myself from the relationship. I am not perfect, but at least I try to make myself better...

you did teh right thing!!! good for you :-)))

I think it is really great that your friend is trying to make changes.  I recently ended a relationship with someone who was diabetic, not because he is diabetic, but partly because his lifestyle choices were so bad that he was literally digging his own grave.  He could barely function and all my energy was going towards taking care of him.  I kept thinking he would eventually see what he was doing to himself, but he didn't want to make any changes, so eventually I had to pick up and leave because it was starting to affect my own health.  I still think about him every day and worry about him all the time, but what else could I do?  Anyway, it's great for your friend, I wish mine would have done the same.
