    What's the standard recommendation for consuming fresh fruit and vegetables? I believe it is 5 to 7 servings per day. To me that's a bare minimum - unbelievably low. I would estimate that I get around 21 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables per day. I wonder how many people believe they're getting enough if they get 5 to 7 servings? Well, 21 servings per day is easy for me because I'm a vegan.

    There's one other thing I neglected to mention, the importance of exercise. My blood glucose level is usually around 86, but once it was up to 100. My doctor didn't say anything about it but I didn't like it being that high. After giving it much thought, I decided that the problem was not my diet, it was insufficient of exercise. So I decided to go for a walk every morning and increase my weight lifting routine. On my next blood work my blood glucose was back down to 86.

    I forgot to mention that the recommendation of 5 to 7 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables is way too low, in my opinion. I estimate that I get around 21 servings per day.

    Also, exercise is very important. I once lowered my blood glucose level from 100 to 86 by exercising more.

    A glucose level of 100 would be great for me. I'm trying to stop full-blown diabetes. I have trouble keeping below 130 right now. I know I can't eat like I used to.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
