    Bowel program much better!

    I started eating a large bowl of popcorn everyday & my bowel program improved 100%! The best thing I've ever done. So try popcorn if you're having trouble.

        Yep, peanuts in shell are good too but remember to eat the skin too. Glad you doing better with your BP Miss Mona.

                Thank ya'll. Me too!

                I was eating nuts Bruce & I was eating too much fat.
                So I eat popcorn cooked in microwave with no oil in a sack.
                It's like a miracle how it's helped. Must be from God. all knowing of our needs.

                Yeah I've stayed away from fiber so many carbs.
                But,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,she rocks/rolls Dr. Oz told us to eat it. lol
                Dr. Oz is why. lol

                    I had a little sugar scare a week ago with it reaching 8.9mmol after a day of carbs (bad I know). Popcorn turns out to be a culprit so careful of the glucose levels!

                    I believe glucose levels are supposed to be between 3-7 and previously I never go higher than 5 ... I keep a check on it because I have family history (grandmother, uncle, mother, two brothers). Right after I had popcorn, I was particularly tired and whenever I don't feel well, I check my glucose level. Scared the heck out of me.
                    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

                      Make sure that you keep pushing a lot of fluids when you are eating popped corn. Also go with low fat/low salt additions.

                      All the best,

                          Since I have been crazy about the UTI, I am using the sticks quite often, about twice a week . Will diabetes show in the urine test I am taking since one of the square is saying glycose? And it is ok to only take the test when I am in rehab about once a year. They always test for diabetes and I have no diabetes history in the family.
