      Sally!
      Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention! dLife has been hijacked. There is no dLife diet program -- not at this time (stay tuned, though -- lots of great things in the works here!). These are people who are illegally using the dLife name and logo. We're addressing right away. Thanks again for posting about it.
      Best,
      Lynn

      Thanks Lynn and Sally
      Why are 'they' bothering us? So sad that we have to be susceptible to this, we have enough to contend with already!

      Well said Lynn! I had diabetes for only 3 months when I was pregnant, but that small amount of time gave me an inkling of an understanding of what it must be like to live with diabetes every single day. I have changed my eating habits since my gestational diagnosis in hopes to avoid type 2 in the future. And I still test my blood sugar to make sure it's in normal range from time to time. Glad dLife is doing this.

      Lovely numbers, Lynn. I would not even call 108 a "spike"! lol. Those are about as lovely and LEVEL as they get! Chasing the apple with the cheese might have prolonged the blood sugar effect a little (if you really want to try to read something into that. lol). Just a thought. The "translation" part can be the tricky part! You might eat the exact same things tomorrow in exactly the same quantities at exactly the same times, and your blood sugars would be completely different... depending on your...

      I have to say I loved your blog. It was fun and interesting and I appreciate the personal side you allowed us to learn. I am smiling. Those sort of reports would have drove me nuts when I was younger and I would second guess myself asking if I was a nagger.
      I am like you and I think that if a relationship is easier to break about nagging than infidelity there really is a serious issue in the background. Guess some men would forgive infidelity because it would be something they would like...

      lol! Thank you, Sally, for your generous comment. I learned years ago just how much my husband does listen when we were dating and he would say things out of the blue or do things based on something I had said so long before that. I had to think how he knew and eventually it dawned on me that while he is short on words, he DOES hear every word I say - even if he doesn't always act like it. Of course this is also proof that he is as big a kid as the two we have, but that's another discussion....

      I also wonder if they would have said anything had she been a SKINNY cook....
      If Anthony Bourdain announced tomorrow that he had diabetes...would they be pointing to the fat, and sugar, and carbs in HIS meals. No, because a. he has a cooking degree, and b. he is thin..... (I choose him, because he is Ms. Dean's biggest and most vocal critic)
      Thank you Lynn for your thoughts.

      Good article. A stick of butter will not give you diabetes but the fat from the butter will go to the midsection of the body where it builds a thicker fat wall and starts to pressure on your kidneys, liver and pancreas where the pancreas start to slowdown the insulin production or start to block/absorb the insulin naturally produced in the pancreas where type-2 starts to happen. So event hough the stick of butter may not give diabetes right away but it will start having affect on your organs,...

      No, you're not crazy. You've just bought into the mistaken notion that magazines, TV and other media, including the "News" is anything other than entertainment.
      You've made a mild complaint and a confession of confusion, here's a REAL rant:
      After 15,000+ years, homosapiens is still version 1.0. The diet dejour is version what - 500? 5000? Doctors who didn't know what caused diabetes 40 years ago, promised a cure would be found within 10 years. Doctors who today still don't know are...

      I saw this, too. If you're crazy then I am, too!
      I can tell you that if I ate that sample breakfast, I would be off kilter with my numbers all day, especially if I started out anything higher than normal.
      I'm type 2 and started on insulin and a pump within the last year. I need to lose about 150 lbs but would be thrilled to lose the fist 50.
      I just don't get it. I try and try to lose weight. When I do, I gain it back. I see the endo next week, and I hate the thought of stepping...

      Thanks, Jo! Sounds like you've done a lot of reading on the subject. LeeAnn, it sounds like you have a good handle on what's healthy and what's not. Unfortunately, most Americans aren't so well informed. Also, many don't have a palate for true, 100% whole grain products. They may not have access to them, either. Plus, the NDEP was suggesting people get more fiber by eating these high-carb, high-glycemic foods. The fact is, even a serving of Wasa whole grain crispbread has only 2g of fiber. And a...

      Actually, Jo, I don't demonize those foods with low fiber and refined ingredients. The fact is they're not good for anyone in large quantities without some degree of balance with other kinds of more nutritionally dense foods. I eat all the foods I like though, including ice cream, chocolate, crackers, cereal, etc. I also eat a ton of fruits and veggies, and balance that with protein. Overall, my nutritional mantra is moderation.
      We have to think about our physical health, but food is also a...
