Default The risk-reversal diet

It's not news to us but it's encouraging to see articles like this in the local paper (especially when it's not copy/pasted from a national news service):

...thereís always been only the standard of care. It advises glucose control, exercise and either the Mediterranean, so-called DASH, or plant-based diet. All options include plentiful levels of carbohydrates, the food that triggers the release of the diabetes-promoting hormone insulin. All options include the admonishment to avoid animal and dairy fat, safe, satisfying whole foods necessary to cut carbohydrates from the diet in the American dietary environment. And itís been a bust.

Now with less sugar!

And the truth shall set you free.

I hope the author is allowed to keep his job. No telling what kind of flack the paper has received from carb/pharma industry.

Think I've had this since 2003. Told I was Type 2 lean on 2/13/12.

I'm facebook friends with this lady who is on a plant based diet. She's vegan. We were diagnosed with T2 about the same time, maybe several months apart. I started eating LC/HF, and I reached the 5% group way before her A1C dropped down to 6%. She's still on plant based. She used to take pics of her meals, and there were lots of potatoes, corn, and yams on her plate. She did lose the weight, but so did I.

27 Mar 20:
A1C: 6.2%
Cholesterol: 170
Crestor 5mg
Metformin 1000mg
BP: Cozaar 50mg

Hoping to work myself back to the 5% Club.

Wishing y'all Peace & Love!

That was an amazing article! Thanks for posting. Every single word and every single line was scientifically CORRECT. It is very rare to see journalists get all the science exactly right. This person really did their homework.

Don't miss this. If you haven't read I suggest you read every word. There's so much nonsense out there about T2, it's really refreshing to see to much correct information in one place.
