    I thought about buying some without the shells the other day, but I was thinking what would be the fun in that? Peeling the shells is part of the awesomeness, not sure why but it just is. :)

    Strength training? No, don't do anything like that, not my style. What is it?
    I can't speak to strength training but if your son eats complex carbs i.e. whole grains, he can maintain his weight and serve his diabetes. Complex carbs don't convert to sugar immediately, they take a lot of digestion and because it's time consuming, they end up being used instead of being converted. Think old school diet, like 150 years ago on the farm in eastern Europe. Buckwheat, barley, groats. No potatoes, no white rice. He needs that heavy seedy bread not commercial rye. If you can't buy it where you are, he may have to learn to make it. There are breadmaker recipes for everything. He basically needs to stay away from processed starches and sugars and even most fruit. Most importantly, he can't let his diabetes get out of control or get too hungry. Losing weight or gaining weight are both bad signs (if it's not muscle gain) but most long-term survivors of diabetes have a very low BMI.

    I want to talk with you more on this but I'm going to sleep soon.

    I'll bring it up tomorrow, we really need the help.

    Exercise is actually extremely important for people with Type 1 diabetes. But if your son isn't really active he should first see his doctor to makes sure his heart is up to it. Building lean muscle mass with strength training could be the best thing for him in the long run.

    Oh, I see. Yeah, I read that Type II is largely if not exclusively behavioral. Type 1 is inherited. Aside from my candy habit, my diet of lean meats, vegetables and whole grains would be something he should should adopt. Putting his own twist on it of course.
    I should have just said weight lifting but push ups and other body weight exercises do the same thing.
