@SciGuySpace SpaceX did 2X rest of world payload to orbit last year, probably 3X to 4X this year

@stevejobs I'm sure you are fully aware of how this article uses PlainSite as one of their sources? The Independent seems to regularly hate on Musk. I guess it helps with their views... (Pun intended) independent.co.uk/news/world/a

@stevejobs And then of course there's SpaceX. The last thing deniers and naysayers ultimate resort to saying "ah but Tesla is small". LOL, the numbers we were seeing were really just like Musk said, an exponential growth! Guys like the EverydayAstronaut analyzing the other side of Musk industries, (the rockets) was also literally a blast off after another! Seeing Falcon9 launch so often (and man those landings which were impossible for NASA themselves!) Naysers had to have other reasons than truth.

@stevejobs I must say that Tesla not only has talented people working for them, but also the community of people who are either owners, investors or simply fans are amazing people. I think one of the reasons I barely felt any doubt about Musk and Tesla and the lies against them seemed so obviously blatant was the community itself. People making in depth analysis about the engineering that made the cars work, learning all those detais was really a blast!

I am a diabetic for past 10 years and until October this year I followed every advise doctors gave and yet my blood sugars were never in control. Then recently I came across the book "The diabetes code" by Dr. Jason Fung which talks about benefits of Intermittent fasting and low carb diet. I talked to my doctor and convinced him that I want to give this a shot. Got myself a CGM (Freestly Libre) and started by first lowering carb intake and then alternate day fasting coupled with Low Carb High Fat diet.

That was in October. Fast forward to now, i have now gone off all medication, have lost 6.6 Kg in weight and my sugar readings without medication are all within the range of 4 to 7.5 mmol/l (72 to 135 mg/dl) both on CGM as well as finger prick tests.

I figured this info might be helpful to someone in fediverse and if it helps even 1 person its worth it.

As always opensource software is here to help too as the readings from CGM can be off the mark but there is this wonderful tool called xdrip+ created by a dad to T1 child and its very stable and has helped me keep track of my sugar levels at all times so any wonderful people who may want to delve into that code to provide support please do check out their github site:
