Type II diabetes is entirely reversible/cureable - please watch this if you still think it isn't, you still have it or know people who still have it:
Please stop consuming sugar today! In any form and shape except perhaps moderate amounts of fruits in their natural (unjuiced) state. This includes fruit juices (even if with pulp), sweet chocolate, honey, sodas/fizzy drinks, cakes/biscuits/crackers, etc. - pretty much anything that tastes sweet.
The big picture - currently most recommended to watch (2015):
Children's short version:
Short version in a cute cartoon (focusing on sodas only - but all sugars are bad for you, see below):
Short version from the researcher:
Please start eating lots of natural fats today (butter, lard, tallow, etc.)! And stop eating processed fats (margarines, sunflower oil, safflower oil, cottonseed oil, etc.) - for details, watch:
Please also severely reduce your carbohydrate intake as soon as you can, because carbohydrates alone are what makes you fat, NOT TOTAL CALORIES - this includes the usual suspects of pasta, potatoes, rice, carrots, etc.
A popular introduction on the subject:
Why we get sick, and why "overeating" isn't the cause:
A long lecture from an alternative health practitioner, lots of food for thought:
This brings us to a nutritional approach called "low carb - high fat", or LCHF.
Popular website on LCHF: http://www.dietdoctor.com/lchf and its youtube channel with a good introduction at: http://www.youtube.com/user/eenfeldt - I recommend watching as many of his interview videos as you can to get an better picture of the influence of this topic
Google search on the topic of LCHF: https://www.google.com/#q=lchf
If you prefer to read a book, then one popular incarnation of LCHF is the New Atkins diet: http://www.amazon.com/New-Atkins-You-Ultimate-Shedding/dp/1439190275 - Please note that LCHF or Atkins is NOT about eating a lot of meat/protein! See clarification here:
And if having smooth, continuous energy all day long without hunger crashes, reduced stress, improved mental focus and athletic performance are something you want, check out nutritional ketosis: http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=nutritional%20ketosis&sm=3
Even if your weight seems to be OK by the scale, make sure you are not a TOFI - thin on the outside, fat on the inside? Typical symptoms are beer belly/tummy (even a small one), often also with thin, emaciated extremities (arms and legs). Look up TOFI on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TOFI, find out the causes (just bad eating? or a more serious medical condition) and take steps to fix it to improve your health, well-being and longevity.
Best health and performance to all of you!

Andy is a tough and trained kickboxer and one of the few you will find on a site like this with genuine skills and abilities in this area. He can give and take punishment and we are both planning a full contact bout later this year which we hope to record and post on Meetfighers and elsewhere.
Had a very brief but quite enjoyable "let's measure each other up" kickboxing session with him. He is one of the rare few who are actually trained and skilled in kickboxing, and we're close in height as well, so it was a good match! Looking forward to training together and stepping into the ring several times for long hard-fought matches! Recommended!
Andras and I finally met today after talking online for years - and he didn't disappoint. He's a very powerful solid, accurate puncher and he gave me a heavy, lengthy workover I really enjoyed. We spent plenty of time talking too and he's a very personable, friendly and articulate man. I look forward to getting to know him better :-)
We have been talking online for almost a decade before we finally got to meet now, and it was well worth the wait!:D
This man is a pain-fountain and a pain-sponge in one! :D
This time his tough gut and other muscles on his body defeated me. First we tried 10 oz gloves, even full force - no effect. Then we briefly tried kicks and knees - some effect, but we did not have enough space for that so my aim was off (apologies about that again). So then I switched to bag gloves, all out - still not much effect. Then I switched to bareknux, all out - he still kept up. No matter how hard I hammered his muscles bareknux (and not just the gut - more like putting my meanest stiffest bareknux punches into his arms, shoulders or pecs for 2 mins straight each!), as soon as we stopped he quickly soaked it all up and kept coming back for more! Great workout for me, and great fun to see so much hurt from me being soaked up with a smile hungry for more!
Sadly I was not in the best shape, so I could not go as hard as it would have been needed to break through (nor was I able to take much back from him - other than a few fun minutes of him standing on my gut while I was doing crunches, thanks for that again - so that is yet to come!); so for next time I'll come in much better shape and we are looking to use stiff knees and kicks to really get through to him and finally make his eyes roll.
So, he is highly recommended if you are into this kind of thing! And make sure you're in a good shape and can punch/kick properly, or you don't stand a chance of getting through his body armor. GRRR
Andras was an absolute pleasure to meet on his trip to the UK. He is a very enthusiastic and friendly character which was very easy to get on with.
We had a totally different session to what i am currently used to, he encouraged some of the long unpracticed karate in me, and he was only too happy to try and share some of his kickboxing techniques with me. It was a great session with some giving and taking, i should reinvest into some sparring gear for when we next meet so we can have a propper sparring session!
I fully recommend him to anyone who likes their contact sports, he is good fun to meet.
Finally met after years of being in contact online, and it was great fun! He was kind enough to rekindle his flame for standup fighting for/with me, and we enjoyed a few hours of drills and practice together. He was kind enough to entertain me with some gut kicks as well, which is one of my favorite but rarely available pastimes :), so extra points! Thank you!
Next time on for harder training, harder kicks and some proper sparring!
Met and hit the mats with IKF at the Wrestlefest in Spring 2008. He was a fun and good wrestling opponent. A really nice guy skilled at the sport. I highly recommend him; and would gladly wrestle him if he comes again my way.
After many years of talking to ikf we met in Manchester at pippas. This guy is a really nice guy and total gent on and off mats he is extremely kind and generous and went out of his way to get me some kick boxing boots in his own time which I appreciated. We will defo be meeting up again next time he is in the UK for a good grapple and kick boxing session. Ikf is a one of the true gents on this site and am now happy to call him a good friend
Yes, a great encounter with this reliable kick-boxer. His expertise leads our sessions so informative with techniques, tactics, and strategy. While our two day spar progressed always safe and sane, encouraging were his cogent practices: precise punches, genuine sidekicks blasting my gut off, etc.
Beyond rings full of fun, he is amiable and wise; nothing gives me such great pleasure as being with the fellow who broadens my horizon.
Ikf passed few days at home and we passed great time in boxing
Ikf have good train good kick and good fight spirit. He know how make you confident and spent time to teach you
outside mat à very friendly and happy people
hope to see him again
AD_idf was kind enough to organize a great fight weekend with a small but good group of fighters. great training and fun for everyone! He is also not a bad combattant himself, please come train kickboxing with him, he likes it, but rarely has the chance. Hope to see him again!
behind a nice eyes and handsome face there is the spirit of a sensei . . .patient teaching and training. . . and friendly then . . Thanks of all andars it was a great pleasure meet you at end hope see you soon and can share with you longer time than this time
First time kickboxing for him, but lots of enthusiasm and good fighting energy for it; technique is currently at a good beginner level, but good control, safe and sane, so recommended for practice for anyone. Since he has a lot of grappling experience, and he really enjoyed kickboxing, I think he would enjoy some controlled mixed punch-kick-grappling fights too.
Energetic, strong, agile; more friendly than he looks on his pictures, a gentleman fighter. Had some good rounds of kickboxing sparring with him, he was kind enough to come down to my level - thank you! Recommended! Hope to fight soon again, longer and harder!
Meet this stocky and powerful fighter if you can take lots of breath taking body kicks - perfectly tough and exhausting fighting with him is guaranteed! ... Ooooh yes, soon again with me!!
went to Austin for a week to take this guy on. sadly we only had 3 training sessions due to family commitments, but they were fun! we mainly did standup/kickboxing, and I must say the guy is a lot of fun to spar! definitely recommended! he was kind enough to accommodate my less than stellar shape at the time (see in clip below). I'm definitely coming back for more! And hoping for LOTS more intense, "proper", longer sparring with hard knockdowns next time, plus LOTS more of gutkicking when I come back next time in better shape!
great guy, we are different in height, weight, size , and styles, but we still had a good grapple, the sign of a good guy, and is a very pleasnt one socially as well, I'd recommend him to anyone.
This guy just loves to fight! Physically enjoys it! A lot! :) You should see the pleasureful evil grin he develops when he gets hurt or hurts you! :) And mind you, he's quite capable of both!
Beyond that, he's a great friendly guy both off the mats, and safe and sane if you are not up to his level of fighting.
His pics don't do justice to him, he is much more spunky/virile/fightable in real life than on his pics. I kept feeling the urge to hurt him whenever he was in my visual field! :)
We met in March 2008 - a great guy that I'd recommend meeting as he's very friendly as well as safe and sane. Although inexperienced in submission wrestling, he was very keen and a fast learner :)
(opinion as of 2008 March)
Friendly, safe, reliable, enthusiastic. Reasonably well built for abuse and likes it. :) Might not be the best choice for advanced competitive guys, but definitely recommended for beginners and intermediates in (sub)wrestling (like me).
PS: Teach him some (kick)boxing gently if you can - he seemed to enjoy both hitting and getting hit, but was too new to it to really be able to enjoy. I think he'll be ok if he gets the chance for some more practice and coaching.
