This morning something new came into my life via e-mail; the Newcastle University Diabetes Diet
information on
Newser .   I'm going on the Newcastle University Diabetes Diet; I just don't know when.  
Probably I should start it at the balsamic Moon which is next Monday, the 27th.  I love starting diets on a
Monday. Right now, I'm putting it all together.  Here's what I found out:

Newcastle University Diet for 2 Months.

The patients were put on a strict diet of just 600 calories a day consisting of
slimming shakes, non-starchy vegetables, tea and zero-calorie drinks.

Non-starchy vegetables
I fooled around with things I had in the house to make a filling low cal protein shake.  Here is my recipe
for one day's supply of three shakes:
2 Cups Silk Coconut Milk
2 scoops Boku Super Protein (Brown Rice)
1 1/2 Tablespoons Navitas Raw Cocoa Powder
1 teaspoon Konsyl
8 ice cubes
Water to make 1 quart
*Protein Shakes*
The shake is delicious; I make it in a blender. The total quart is about 400 calories which means I have
room for two cups+ of vegetables during the day for the total of 600 calories.

The only change that I will make to this diet is that I will make Sundays a free day of the week.  That will
give me a day to eat fruit, nuts, salmon, and other foods that I feel are necessary for my health.  I don't
know how that will affect this diet, but I need an open door once a week to eat naturally; at least naturally
for me.  Of course, I will continue to take my vitamins each day from Dr. Weil and the diabetes meds until
my sugar is stable.  Dr. Weil's vitamin advisory is
HERE.

I see my Doctor on July 12th, so that gives me about two weeks to work on this and then see what he
says.

If anyone decides to go on this diet with me, please let me know and we could get our own chat room or
site to compare notes or just let it all hang out here on FB.
