I started a YouTube channel!

|Coming to Kingston? I will be happy to accept|
a T-shirt from your favorite Canadian team!
(The Canucks are not necessarily my favorite;
this was a gift.)
- Type 2 diabetes and other metabolic dysregulations occur in people of all shapes and sizes
- Keto/LCHF diets, fasting, and bariatric surgery often reverse metabolic problems long before significant fat loss has occurred
- Low fat diets do work for some people (it's true!)
- Overweight & obesity may be “protective” against certain metabolic complications
- A frank & honest conversation about the emotional & psychological aspects of dietary adherence
- Opening the conversation for those who struggle with emotional eating, binge eating, and other self-sabotage even on keto
- Tips for changing negative inner monologues that are roadblocks to success
- Actionable advice to start getting the results you want
|Also happy to accept a bottle of your favorite Canadian wine!|
Did you know WAYNE GRETZKY owns a WINERY?
Hockey and wine...I think I should emigrate.
P.S. EVERYONE is welcome at this event! You don't have to be Canadian! Live near the border? COME UP and see us!
P.P.S. Canadian liquor stores know what they're doing. (Or, at least, the ones in Ontario do.) They post the residual sugar content for every single wine they sell. How cool is that? I wish we would adopt that policy in the US. Man, was that helpful when I was up there. I was pleasantly surprised at how low in sugar some of the rosés were. (I'd always assumed they were sweet.) And it was eye-opening to see how high or low the reds and whites were. Very useful information. Seriously, USA, get with the program. (Maybe there's an app I can use to look up sugar content of wines...)

- Pork rinds (plain might be best, but if you’re not a purist, hot & spicy or salt & vinegar flavors are fine; they typically contain little to no sugar but might be seasoned with MSG, yeast extract, maltodextrin, etc. Even so, the carb count is usually 0g per serving.)
- Beef jerky or meat sticks (stick to original or peppered flavors; teriyaki and BBQ are typically higher in sugar)
- String cheese; cheese sticks
- Salami or pepperoni slices or sticks
- Hard boiled eggs
- Nuts (avoid honey-roasted and nut mixes that include dried fruit)
- Dark chocolate (the higher the cocoa percentage, the lower the sugar content, usually)
- Pork rinds (with or without sour cream dip or guacamole)
- Beef jerky
- Sliced pepperoni, salami, or dry sausage sticks
- Nuts or nut butter
- Pre-cooked bacon (yes, this is a thing!)
- Deli meats and/or cheese: roast beef, corned beef, and pastrami are probably the lowest in sugar, but baked or roasted turkey is fine; avoid or go easy on “honey baked” or “brown sugar” ham or turkey. Salami, prosciutto, mortadella, and other cured meats are great.
- Pre-made egg salad or tuna salad from the deli (ask about ingredients and sugar content)
- Rotisserie chicken
- Canned tuna, salmon, sardines, or mackerel – be sure to buy ones with a pop-top unless you have a can opener handy
- Hard boiled eggs
- Bagged salad greens
- Raspberries or strawberries (and maybe a small container of sour cream or plain yogurt for dipping)
- Salad bar, olive or antipasto bar – many supermarkets now have salad or antipasto bars stocked with fabulous low-carb fare: olives, cheese, artichoke hearts, bell peppers, marinated mushrooms, sliced or chopped hard boiled egg, turkey, grilled chicken, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, lettuce, spinach, cucumbers, radishes, etc.
- Pork rinds
- Beef jerky
- Pepperoni or any other cured meats that don’t require refrigeration until opened
- Nuts and/or nut butters (careful here if these are trigger foods for you)
- Jar of coconut, olive, or avocado oil
- Canned tuna, salmon, sardines, mackerel
- Dessicated/dried coconut flakes or chips (unsweetened)
- Your favorite vinegars (can be combined with the oils to make a vinaigrette for a lunch salad)
- Hot sauce (doesn’t need to be refrigerated, since it’s vinegar-based)
- Dark chocolate
- Can opener
- Plastic or metal utensils
- Napkins or paper towels
- Paper plates or bowls (or use plastic containers, wash them at home or in your hotel room, and reuse)

Typical old-school representation of gout: a demon shooting fire at the toes.
Notice what appears to be a wealthy looking man eating what might be a meatball, and there’s alcohol on the table.
