Restaurant Review: Arterra

At the bottom of a lovely overpriced Marriot hotel is the hip, modern and swanky restaurant/ bar/ patio lounge known as Arterra, with a fresh sushi bar and tight shirted waitresses and live music and hip low furniture and dark […]

Restaurant Review: Hunter’s Steakhouse

Usually, when I walk into a restaurant and I detect a faint moldy smell that’s about the time when I head for the door.  But Hunter’s Steakhouse is a historic landmark here in San Diego and how could I resist […]

You know, any day when you have to ask “Do I have lobster stuck in my teeth?” is a good day.  For me, that day was when I ate at Bite of Boston in beautiful La Jolla in San Diego.  […]

Restaurant Review: Max Brenner Las Vegas

You have to be in a particularly special state of mind to go into an all-dessert restaurant. I don’t mean it’s after dinner and you just want dessert. I mean the kind of restaurant where the owner has such a […]

Restaurant Review: McCormick & Schmicks

McCormick & Schmicks is one of those dark beefy places serving strong drinks with irrelevant descriptions and lighting too dark to see what you’re eating or what your date looks like.  One of those places that you can expect to find […]

 

Dave the Vitamin Guy — Treating Diabetes

First of all, there are two types of diabetes. Type 1 diabetes impacts the way that your body utilizes food. People who have type 1 diabetes are persons whose bodies destroy the cells in the pancreas that are responsible for insulin production. In most cases, this situation gets so severe that the pancreas is unable to produce any insulin. As a result, most people who are affected by this disease have to take at least one insulin shot a day to neutralize blood sugar levels.

Type 2 diabetes is the more common of the two types. People who have type 2 diabetes are persons whose pancreas either can’t produce enough insulin or whose bodies can’t properly utilize the insulin that the pancreas produces. This results in elevated blood sugar levels because the insulin is unable to transport blood sugar into the cells.

Chromium, particularly chromium picolonate, is one of the more popular supplements that persons use to combat this situation. In most cases of diabetes, chromium levels are low. Most persons who take supplemental chromium notice positive results in lowering blood sugar levels, lowering triglyceride levels, and facilitating the body’s utilization of insulin. Supplemental daily dosing of chromium is usually between 2000 and 5000 mcg.

Restaurant Review: Broken Yolk Cafe Redux

broken yolk

If you are like me, you really look forward to breakfast foods. One of my favorite foods of all time is omelets. I fell in love with them when I had to cook them perfectly. You do not know eggs until they are done right. So when I took my daughter to The Broken Yolk Cafe in Mission Valley for her birthday, I was planning on letting her eat eggs and cheese (her two favorite foods of all time). Read more »
