I've lived a very glutinous lifestyle, especially recently. I got extremely overweight and developed type II diabetes. My turning point was December 12th, 2014. The day I was diagnosed with a blood sugar of 317. Since that day I have lost 60 pounds and got my sugars under control. I'm running under 99 on average. The only think I've been craving has been some good Q! I took Jeff's rub and replaced the brown sugar with Splenda. The rub still smells great. The secret is to buy fresher spices, don't use old stuff.
