I am living this situation right now, my brother just got out of the hospital and almost lost his leg, he is type 1. His blood sugars are out of control. I brought a copy of dr bernsteins book to him and ask him every day to read it.

Why on earth is it assumed that people can easily stick to low-fat diets? Oh right - because they're generally full of tasty sugar.

This sort of reasoning makes as much sense as not recommending a gluten-free diet to a celiac because "it's too hard to stick to."

"many study subjects are unable to stick with Bernstein-style diets."

Well, yes - if they aren't educated about them...

After I was diagnosed Type II, my dr. signed me up for diabetes education classes. I was already finding my way to low carb and reading Dr. Bernstein. I was also the only person in the class losing weight and getting my numbers under control. Without any meds. Despite the obvious improvements, my comments about low-carb were brushed off with the same dismissive comment: people can't stick to that.

Well, yes they can. At least some can, if they are given the opportunity, the knowledge, and the tools. It chaps to know they are continuously denied these by 'experts' who know 'better'.

2 years later, my latest A1c is 4.9 - with just low-carb, high fat paleo-type diet (which I love) and exercise for control. Weight has stayed off, hunger is a thing of the past - and side benefits galore: skin, nails, hair improvements, headaches gone, energy levels way up, memory improved.

Just how much study and anecdotal evidence do the experts require before they can admit their approach is hurting, not helping?



WOW!"we don't believe in that"???!!!Why are so man...

WOW!
"we don't believe in that"???!!!
Why are so many doctors like this?
You'd think they put chemicals in the med school water or something.
