    Going down the rabbit hole of primal lifestyle helped turn my health around. Of all the books I devoured, the following books really stood out:

    The New Primal Blueprint
    Primal Pancreas:
    Pancreas Damage Survival Guide
    The Keto Reset Diet: Reboot Your Metabolism in 21 Days and Burn Fat Forever
    Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer life

    and for some different food recipes:

    Nom Nom Paleo: Food for Humans

    If anyone else has good Primal/Paleo/Keto books to share that they have had health improvement successes with, please share it here as well.

    John, may I ask you to complete part of your profile settings that show which type of diabetes you have as this will show under your avatar. As you have kept your profile private, it may also help if you say which diabetes meds you are on, if any, or if you are diet only, in your signature. Of course this is entirely up to you, but it really does help everyone to understand where you are coming from.

    That would be good, except it doesn't show under your avatar, and your profile is set at private so no-one can see it. :)

    Ok, just tried changing a few settings. Hopefully that helps.

    You have managed to make your profile page viewable to registered members, but you haven't completed the options such as Type of diabetes, treatment, medications.

    Two more books that may be of interest:

    Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfilippo: Some good recipes I have been enjoying along with good health info.

    The Diabetes Code by Dr. Jason Fung : Covered in more detail on another thread. His videos are also good to watch.

    Paleo Principles by Sarah Ballantyne is a pretty solid nutrition science.

    The Paleo Manifesto by John Durant goes more into some of the ancestral and physical anthropology stuff and how our diet has changed

    Hi I'm in a strange situation, I have chronic pancreatitis and now diabetes. Diagnosed 7 days ago as type 2, Seems more like type 3. Had my diet worked out to avoid annoying the pancreas eg low fat high carbs.Now diabetic I have to work towards low carbs high fat. So high protein low fat low carbs seems the way to go. Any books or recipes that fit?

    All the Primal lifestyle books helped me rethink the low fat and high carb diets, even (or especially) for those with pancreas issues, as that was the reason my pancreas got into trouble in the first place. I take prescription pancreatic enzymes with my meals to help break down the healthy fats which are absolutely essential for health. Of course those enzymes also help break down carbs and protein so that I absorb more nutrients from food. I also read that too much protein and the body just transfers that to carbs as well.

    Primal food is mostly meat/fish/eggs, veggies, nuts and seeds, with as little processed and starchy food as possible. This automatically ends up lower carb, but with healthy fats and proteins.

    Are you taking pancreatic enzymes?
