    Yes I will mention this. I have been checking my sugar 2 hours after I eat and it is in the normal range. In fact it has been on the low end a few times. This makes me feel better. I had a talk with the doc yesterday morning on the phone and explained this and I mentioned how I have started eating primal. He was not too happy. He said and I quote "people do this and then wonder why things start going wrong" Then he asked me if I had lost any weight doing this and I haven't so I said so. He then mentioned I may want to look into doing a weight loss system such as WWatchers that didn't eliminate certain foods. Ugh! Let's just say I am in no hurry to talk to him again. Lol.
