Interesting Study On Gastric Bypass Surgery And Blood Sugar Crashes

I came across this article a few days ago. When comparing three types of weight loss surgery (gastric bypass which I’m figuring means the RNY surgery, duodenal switch and the sleeve) it was noted that those who had the gastric bypass were more likely to have some type problem with blood sugar regulation after surgery. Some new conditions that were noted included: – nesidioblastosis: hypoglycemia caused by the pancreas over secreting insulin – noninsulinoma pancreatogenous […] read more

Others find that their trigger foods are all related by texture such […] read more

Low Carb Cinnamon Almonds

I was busy cleaning and sorting through our freezer the other day and came across a bag of raw almonds. I vaguely remember purchasing them to make my own homemade smoked almonds. While searching for that recipe I came across another one for cinnamon glazed almonds. They sounded wonderful and looked even better with their sugary coating. Unfortunately me and things coated in sugar do not get along thanks to RH. I wondered if there […] read more
