I just came across your blog and I'm enjoying all the links and resources.

I was in a car accident in 2005 and have chronic neuropathic pain - I'm currently on meds that have changed my cholesterol profile, my thyroid function and my glucose fasting numbers are now in the high normal. I'm about to do a glucose tolerance test to check my feeling that I'm now insulin resistant. I walk 3 times a week with a walking group, I take 3 intermediate level pilates classes ( an hour each!) and I'm consuming 1500 calories a day on Jenny Craig. Yet, I still weigh 80lbs more than I did! Gah. There has to be a better way.

Interesting word, lifestyle, cuz thats whats required. Changing eating habits to reduce glycemic load, is insufficient for long term success, it requires a lifestyle overhaul. People are willing and able to lose weight, may people have lost lots of weight on various and sundry plans. But if you think weight loss is the answer, you are asking the wrong question. The real question is is how to we get people to keep the weight off once they've lost it, cuz so far no diet has been proven to be any better than any other in real life. This is why doctors prescribe pills.

Why would a doctor want to prescribe a life-style change when they can just give a pill?!
