    feeling pumped for sure,

    i read and read and read then executed. the results were as described,

    bg down, wt down, bp down, trig down, hdl up, ldl up 1/6 aint bad


    it was the info i found here and elsewhere that guided me.

    we all see there is some extreme stuff out there, but a reasonable approach to carb restriction, intermittent fasting, bs testing has worked amazingly for me.
