Yeah, I like cabbage and have it fairly often, fried, boiled, as slaw and, if I make it, in soup.
The Trigs and carbs relationship is what made me suspect the oatmeal. Other than oatmeal, I eat no refined carbs. What carbs I do eat come from above ground vegetables, legumes, nuts, and fruits in moderation. By far, the highest concentration of carbs eaten is in the oatmeal and beans (which I usually have cold with a vinegar and oil dressing). I haven't tested beans for BG impact. I will, but I'm guessing it's low. And now we're learning beans are good source of RS.
For exercise, I do a fair amount of yard work on my five acres, which here in Florida translates into using loppers, a walk behind brush mower, heavy duty line trimer, swinging a small chain saw, and some moderately heavy lifting for a few hours a week (I don't count the riding mower), but no structured weight training. Additionally, weather permitting, I ride 15 to 20 miles a day on my hybrid bike at a fairly good clip (about 15 mph), which does get my heart rate up for some of that hour or so that I ride, but I haven't measured it exactly. I'm pretty sure I exceed the 180-age criteria, though. For me, that would only be 106 (you can do the math ).
