I have an Endo appt come monday the 21st. I ordered her a copy of Diabetic Solution (in hardback no less) and it will arive on Friday. Shes a fellow still I think. One can only hope she reads it and lays off the "your brain will starve" jazz.

I actually like the Atkins Diet.  Today, control of his name has been lost to corporations, but the diet is sound.  A new book called the New Atkins for Youhas come out with good advice, it offers few "frankenfoods" and has a lot more science.

Impossible not to lose weight eating 30 carbs. I eat around 35 carbs daily, with the fewest at breakfast. I can't handle many at breakfast at all. One of the most important factors in Dr.B's approach is keeping protein, carbs, fats consistent from day to day.

One can lose weight on Dr. B's, too, just by virtue of having better numbers, and the ketogenic effects.  Higher numbers equal weight gain, cus they require more insulin from us.  I don't do 36 carbs a day, but I follow the principle of the law of small numbers... and eat about 60-85 grams of carb a day, depending on what I'm eating... Hardly eat any at all in the morning, because I am soooo sensitive in the morning... I just can't handle much of anything there...  Unless it's 100% fiber, like those muffins I've been eating...

Much valuable info in Dr. B's book. It's not a diet book. Don't bother buying his recipe book. Not many recipes & they're boring. Dozens & dozens of low carb recipe sites with far better options.

Atkins is different because it's about weight loss & has a stringent induction phase with carbs added in once the induction phase is over. They're certainly similar in that they're low carb. Dr. Bernstein's approach is solely based on controlling BG. Atkins isn't. Best to read his book Diabetes Solution. Dr. Atkins really did sell out with his "diet" foods that aren't diabetic friendly.

I was slurping down my coconut milk/hemp protein shake the other day and realized that this year I am thankful for all of you! Hope you all had a good holiday.

Thanks. I look into those books. I am dosing him now according to the carbs he eats and correcting before meals with that reading. Seems to work sometimes and other times, not so much.

Usually, total daily dose and I:C and carb sensistivity ratio will be proportional to body weight, insulin sensitivity and activity level. For a children, they will tend to be carb and insulin sensitive. Dr. B notes that a gram of carbs raises him 5-10 mg/dl, but for myself, I rise 2-3 mg/dl/g. You should probably be focusing on your I:C ratio and keeping after meal variations controlled. I learned a lot about insulin dosing and these sorts of relationships from the books "Using Insulin" and "Think Like a Pancreas."
