I am T2 and find the same doo doo about eating "healthy" carbs annoying, and usually inaccurate.
But here's the thing — these training courses and workshops tailored to type 2 could benefit from some of the information that is routinely handed out to T1s. I have a number of T2 friends who said that just hearing me talk about some of the information I got to care for my T1 son really helped them to understand better WHY they had to do some of the things they were told to do. At least in the (admittedly limited) experiences of my acquaintances, T2s are not being taught the ins and outs of insulin response and how it interacts with diet, exercise, stress, combinations of nutrients, sleep, and so forth. They're given small tidbits, whereas T1s are given the full-course meal, if you'll excuse the food related metaphor (I think my subconscious wants me to go have lunch). Yes, there are different ways to manage different problems, but there are also certain strategies in common that all of the above could benefit from learning about. And that's one reason I find it frustrating that all the focus is on T2s and the T1s are thrown an occasional scrap.
