  • That the ADA is full of crap with their guidelines
  • That carbs causes all types of problems
  • that carbs are not a necessary nutrient
  • that many people (including me) can get a handle on type 2 without medication
  • That keto adaption can be a permanent lifestyle and is not all that difficult
  • that this forum changed my life and I believe it has helped many people

.Self education is the answer to all questions
.Cheating on carbs is not worth it.
.I want to see with my eyes , have feet , etc.... therefore I eat low carb
.The more I drink water etc... the more I pee , the more my thirst is really bad , so moniter my fluids
.

I've learned that we must educate ourselves. We cannot simply just trust whatever advice our medical caregivers relay to us, because in a way, they are trained just like the overseas based customer support people are trained, just follow the script put before you in the binder.

I am ultimately the one to pay the price or reap the benefits for decisions made regarding my health so I should be responsible for learning as much as I can so that I can differentiate the facts from the BS.

I take my journey one day at a time - and when I have a bad day, remember "This, too, will pass".

Just when I think I've learned something...the last sentence of what I'm reading says, "Then again...we're all different!" :wacko:
