Brian you select great posts. As a T2 I follow a tightly controlled carb eating pattern (not quite Berstein but close) and I add as.much exercise as I can fit in. (That bad term "diet and exercise only" which I no longer use). Starting A1c 12.0 2009 now 6.0 no meds! I am fortunate to be able to do it, not everyone can.
I am mentioning this because of all the flack and rude comments I have gotten from this site and others, "what do I eat grass? I am a goody two shoes who thinks I am better than anyone else, I am not a diabetic. I am a danger to other diabetics. What do I want a gold star?" This is just a sample from Tu Diabetes, yes this site.
I was at the Tu focus group in Berkley awhile ago It was one of those this where a lot of people sit around the table full of cards with topics to arrange.
I took one labeled recipes (food) and pairedit with medicine. Because "food is medicine to me". That was quickly vetoed by the group, as a crazy idea. FYI
No one made any rude comments that day.
Just can the rude comments please, I would appreciate. It. Hey I might do the next TED.
Thanks for listening
That's my rant!
