This looks like a really interesting study which will compare the ADA diet to some form of low carb diet. Although I squeek by since I am technically "overweight" I don't qualify since I use insulin. I also looked, and although the study is being performed atUCSF, it appears to not require you to visit San Francisco and you can participate from any location.

Free coaching, blood tests and health assessments. I'd encourage everyone to participate.

I would be interested, but if I was assigned the ADA diet, I couldn't participate. I already know how that turns out.
