The experiment to apply three books continues.

I finished reading 2/3 books I picked.

1) Diabetes Solution
2) How to fail at everything and still win big

The main things from Diabetes Solution that I will apply are:

- Meals
- Increase Insulin Sensitivity  

1) Meals

The book recommends to eat no more than 6g,12g, 6g each of carbs for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I decided to tweak that to 12 and 6 for lunch and early dinner instead. No breakfast necessary.

To stick with this, I will continue with the Keto/Low Carb diet that I am already doing. By having early dinner and no breakfast, I can be in fasted state for about 16-18 hours a day.

2) Increase Insulin Sensitivity

This is important to:
- Reduce the amount of external insulin I need.
- Lose weight
- Reduce spikes and keep standard deviation of sugar readings low.

Recommended ways to become sensitive include:
- Weight training
- Reduce stress
- Use insulin mimicking agents like Chromium, Cinnamon, Alpha lipoic acid and evening Primrose oil

I have started applying these recommendations.  
The basal amount of insulin I need is already reducing and my goal is to keep under 10 units a day.

This is exciting.
Next is application of the second book.

Stay Tuned.

    @keni I'm not sure how I missed the post about the books you chose. Great summary of the first book with some practical guidelines. Looking forward to the next reviews!

    @keni - that second book by Scott Adams is a good one. I love a pragmatic approach for sure.

      @brianball - Yes it is a good book. Read the summaries and watched a few videos of Scott talking about the book before I settled on it for my experiment. The book didn't disappoint.

    @keni The only thing i'm seeing here is, you completed two books in less than 10 days. Very very cool.

      @seunoyebode - Audio books are the best. I actually was able to listen to Scott's book two times. It takes less time and work to listen to a book. I was more impressed with it than Atomic habit. I think James Clear used a lot of content from Scott's book.

      But the goal is not the speed of reading so once I am done reading, I will spend a significant time trying to apply the things I learnt. I doubt reading any other book rest of the year. Unless I apply all 3 over a weekend...haha.
