Glucose is a little more clear and the trend line is definitely down.

Of course, as we saw a couple weeks ago, I’m beginning to get to the point where I don’t want to reduce my glucose a lot more. Which, if you think of it, is quite a statement for someone who 25 weeks ago was diabetic.

Next week will be the start of my 13th week of this experiment, and I’m beginning to think about what the next 13 weeks will be. Right now, I’m thinking that for the next 13 weeks I will try a slightly higher carbs, low glycemic index diet — basically something like Tim Ferris’ Slow Carb diet. I’ve been experimenting with adding some beans to my diet the last week or so, while keeping the net effective carbs down below 30g most days, and I think the effect has been that I’ve actually lost a little more weight. The other thing I’ve got in mind is to try the 100 Pushups in 7 Weeks plan, except that I’ll be thrilled to get to 100 pushups in 13 weeks. I don’t think I’ve ever done 100 pushups.

In any case, I’m actually reasonably happy with the results, even though I did kind of hope to look like a Greek god — or at least a geek god — before now.
