    Have you checked out any of Zoe Harcombe's work on that issue?
    The video I posted from Low Carb Breckenridge had a pretty damning indictment of the diet-heart hypothesis.. but maybe a mere PHD isn't qualified enough to satisfy your exacting standards..
    I would repost the link for you but you probably wouldn't watch it anyway...oh yes also the Ex-president of the World Heart Federation said much the same..but hey what does he know.

    @bulkbiker I'd appreciate a reposting of Zoe Harcombe, Ph.D.'s lecture. I thought it was within this topic, but appears not. I think it belongs here too. I believe it's the best overview to date of the evidence. And it really helped that she made her points very concisely and at a slower pace. Still struggled to keep up, but it was doable. I really need to start a library of my favorite lectures. I'd put this one in my top ten. :)

    Wow, I am really impressed with the tight control you're maintaining. I remember reading about the puer tea here on the forum. It's interesting. Thank you for taking the time to share your methods, experiences, and results. I've recommitted to doing the ketogenic diet for the purpose of losing more weight. Curious as to whether or not it improve my glucose levels. Time will tell.

    Will share your blog post with my diabetes group. I enjoy your writing style. :)

    You said your diet caused your diabetes, I don't think you'd sell many pills.
    I reckon my lifestyle caused mine.

    Yes, I'm a fan of pu'er tea. Still contains caffeine though, so I tend not to drink it at night.

    Maybe if the pill says "to be taken with roast pork belly only and no exercise" there may be takers...

    Sadly, it would probably be amazingly popular.
    Particularly if it came with a free couch and tv.
    Like I said, that's what got me to T2.
