... but others can. That's the thing about diabetes: it's different for every one of us. That's why the advice to "eat to your meter" is so valuable.
I know I can't eat most of the carbs the good doctor mentions. But I also know there are diabetics on this forum who can (and do) keep to 100 grams of carbs a day and manage their diabetes quite successfully. And there are legions out there (not on this forum) who have not yet chosen to go ultra-low-carb and who would benefit from avoiding the named "white" carbs entirely and choosing their other carbs carefully.
I would have liked to see the doctor be a little more aggressive in eliminating more carbs altogether. But, for many people, it's a good guide to a good start. Thanks, Sue, for the link.

He comes across to me as someone with good intent, who is trying to get us to think, rather follow the exact path. As said, we are all individuals and have different requirements (and different bad habits).
Some of the things that we need to do we won't know unless we try them out, with an eye on caution.
I just wish the idiots with deliberate misinformation and trolls would take a walk.
Just as I cannot tell another T2er what is best for them, nobody can tell me with certainty what is right for me.
We can only say that something looks to be worth a try as we felt better for it.
