I saw that and went, WHAT?! Then I read on and saw you aren’t on oral medications. Ah! Once on oral meds, regular (very regular, like ±1 hour) meals have been non-negotiable for me (and I carry around a pack of Life Savers for emergencies, since they travel well and don’t take up much space in my pocket).

OTOH, my sheer terror of needles gets me up every morning at 5:15 to exercise before work, and even on travel vacations I go through a routine while my wife is in the shower. I’m hopeful exercise + oral meds will keep me off insulin until they come up with an oral version.

I would have a hard time living with your diet, Heath. I would have a very hard time getting my wife on it. I’m a good enough cook that I can keep her tastebuds entertained with a (mostly) low-carb/low-GI diet (seasonings and sauces are my friend).
