    How much overweight are you @lcarter? Are doctors pleased with you having no damage from sugar/carbs or is damage evident and to what extent?

    Amazing...but stories like that don't surprise me anymore...

    As Dr Jason Fung and others have pointed out, T2D is a condition of chronically HIGH insulin. The solution is a carbs lite, fats friendly, insulin lowering lifestyle... That gives us a very wide range of inclusive dietary options.
