Default Indian Doc in US with T2D

or at least I assume T2.

He is a low carber, talks about his diet and the social pressures that come to bear.

Very interesting article and thank you for sharing this fox.

I notice he does eat some grain foods that most of us avoid, like whole wheat bread, but he limits them. And he gave up the basmati rice which is a staple in the Indian diet.

And I think we can all sympathize with the problems he has when visiting relatives that just don't understand the limitations our disease puts on our diet.
Cups of tea loaded with sugar, can't they just offer him the tea without the sugar?

Yes, IF they do not sweeten the whole pot ... and typically, chai is made with boiled milk, added early in the process.

But I also wanted to post because of the photo! Look at the guy. Not your classic fat lazy slob, at all. About time we got some representation like that!

Yeah, I'm glad he makes it work with as many carbs as he's eating. I wonder why he goes with only white mean chicken?
