Just a note. The same diabetic mentioned previously also suffers from elevated glucose in the morning said that she had the fermented pasta for dinner with a tomato and pork based sauce around 7:00pm. Normally she eats a small protein snack before bed to help control morning blood glucose. This time she did not. Her morning glucose was 113. Normally after regular pasta and a small protein snack around bedtime morning blood glucose is 130-140.
N=2 Fermented pasta seems to not blow your blood glucose through the roof
A couple of interesting updates. I have a friend who is diabetic and on metformin but not insulin and no statins. I told her about the fermented pasta I’ve been eating and told her there is some literature that suggests fermented wheat won’t blow your glucose through the roof (it doesn’t mine but regular pasta does). So, I gave her a small sample to try. I got a text message from her and she said that normally when she has pasta by 5pm her glucose is 140. She said this time at 5pm her glucose was 92.
Moving to nomad land
My wife and I (who by the way I met on the Ray Peat forum, married for 3 years) are both Histotechnologists. We recently purchased an Airstream and are planning on hitting the road full time doing contract work. The arrangement will allow us to work 6-7 months out of the year and play off the grid the rest of the year.
I will be doing some contract work and doing some graduate work in the investigations field in the way of crime scene investigation/criminal justice as a one of the subspecialties in histotechnology is forensic histotechnology. I don’t know if I’ll ever do anything with it but it is something to do and can’t hurt.
Our Airstream build is scheduled, I estimate that it will be January/February when it is finished. I plan on doing a lot more with this blog around that time.
That’s all for now. Cheers.
