EMAIL QUESTIONS TO: email@example.com
Dear Dr. Serrano,
I'm a 37-year old male who was diagnosed as pre-diabetic (fasting blood test of 102) in November 2008 and diabetic (500+ fasting glucose test) in Feb 2009. I tried Metformin 500 mcg for a month, then was upped to 1000 mcg the following month, given Solantus for a month, nothing changed my blood sugar. Then I tried Dr. Neal Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes (vegan diet). My blood sugar and cholesterol went back to normal levels after 2 months (100-130 fasting blood).
However, due to unemployment and other circumstances in my life, I haven't been able to maintain the best diet. Also, I'm a meat-eater and can't imagine life without eggs, bacon, steak, etc. Currently, my fasting blood is usually between 300-350 sticking to the traditional ADA diet guidelines. I'm also not taking any meds and prefer not to.
I've read everyone saying to avoid meats and diary to get my numbers back down, but I'm assuming they're talking about generic commercial foods (not grass-fed or organic). Is there a way I can get my numbers back down AND still enjoy my dairy/meat? If not, is it possible to enjoy these things all the time after getting my numbers down or do I still have to limit them?

I love your questions and I am glad you are a carnivore because your vegetarian diet was going to lead to higher sugars again and some depression if you are not consuming some sort of proteins, like eggs, nuts, or beans.
- This is one time that a modified Atkins will do wonders for you.
- I would consume seafood, red meat, eggs, nuts, beans, and all vegetables, but they must be ORGANIC SOURCES.
- Fruits in moderation and only after exercising. I would use grapefruits, avocados, coconut, prunes, pears, berries, but again, after workouts.
- No juices or drinks of any kind but water.
- No breads or grains until weight loss or normal insulin levels.
- Weight lifting.
- Alpha omega -3 from Scott (614 596 7994), chromiun pycolinate 600mcgs per day, Whole Food IV - 4 tablets per day by Innate Response, use code SER030 or call (800) 634-6342, alpha lipoic acid -400mgs per day
- Humanofort call Chris at (614) 256-9511 and take four, this works awesome.
- Consume organic butter and cheeses, the cheeses only twice per week, and only after you follow the diet for fourteen days.
- Lots of water.
- After 21 days of doing these steps, pick once or twice a month for a period of two hours that you can eat anything you want.
Pot Roast with Cider-Maple Gravy and Mashed Butternut SquashIngredients:
4 tsp olive oil, divided
3/4 cup apple cider
2 tbsp maple syrup
2 medium butternut squash, cut lengthwise in half, seeded
3 tbsp organic cornstarch dissolved in 3 tbsp water

- Press 3/4 teaspoon pepper evenly onto all surfaces of beef roast. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in stockpot over medium heat until hot. Place roast in stockpot; brown evenly. Pour off drippings.
- Season roast with 1 teaspoon salt. Add bone stock and cider; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover tightly and simmer 2-1/2 to 3-1/4 hours or until roast is fork-tender.
- Meanwhile heat oven to 375°F. Brush cut sides of squash halves with remaining 2 teaspoons oil. Place squash, cut sides down, on metal baking sheet. Bake in 375°F oven 45 to 55 minutes or until fork-tender. Cool slightly. Scoop squash flesh into large bowl; discard shells. Mash squash with back of spoon or fork until almost smooth. Season with salt and pepper, as desired; keep warm.

|What Our Customers Are Saying
We received our ground beef very quickly, and I have to say it's the greatest thing I've ever tasted.
I grew up on a farm, and when we started buying organic beef I thought we found something that tasted and smelled like the beef I was fed as kid. You were right, there's nothing like grass-fed beef. WE LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!
We will be ordering again soon.

|Arlington Wreaths- 2009
|This somber photo was taken at Arlington National Cemetery, where the headstones are decorated with holiday wreaths. The Worcester Wreath Company of Harrington, ME has graciously been donating the wreaths since 1992, and every year volunteers have helped to lay wreaths upon the headstones.
This year, over 16,000 wreaths were laid at Arlington as well as the USS Maine Memorial, the Tomb of the Unknown, and the Kennedy's grave sites.
This is a poignant reminder of the ultimate sacrifice our troops have given for our safety and the security of our country. Please remember to keep them in your prayers this holiday season, as well as the wounded warriors at home and abroad that are suffering from war injuries, and their families.
