I may also add that exercise has many health benefits specially for diabetics. It require less insulin to get the glucose out of the blood into the muscle, reducing insulin resistance. It will make you require less insulin and make the muscle more glucose receptive. It will also reduce TG and help reduce circulating free fatty acids that will improve lipids profile.

That is why most medications require a bigger and bigger dosage and with time they may stop working all together. By reducing your circulating insulin that a highly insulin resistance individual will produce when ingesting carbs it dials down their tolerance and your insulin function may improve. This may also help reverse fatty liver even if there is not much weight loss, because lipids metabolism in the liver improve with the better functioning insulin. Because insulin is also involved in lipid metabolism improved control improve lipids profile for most people.

In my opinion being vegetarian makes the diabetic diet more difficult and may on the long term create negative health problems. It does to most healthy long term vegetarians I have known and there were many. Being diabetic it just compound the possibilities of negative effects.
Yeah, except as I recall, Rad is not very low-carb. I don't recall his numbers but maybe he can chime in. What I's also really like to know in addition to the lipid and glucose numbers are liver condition, visceral fat and LDL particle size/particle count. My suspicion is that LC/HF uber-carnivore would do better on all of those.

If you reduce portions, change for types of less rapid acting carbohydrates and you exercise you change insulin dynamics and probably end up with less insulin resistance.

Have your read Prof. Richard Feinman contrary views on Lustig fructose ideas.

Yeah, it's REALLY weak. It's filled with total speculation and he doesn't back up much of what he says. It's really more of a "political" objection than a scientific one because of Lustig's crack about taxing sugar (instead of fat).

I found it utterly useless. If he has anything to back up his wild claims and accusations, he should bring it!
