"Ingrid , Thank you for your post. I appreciate you sharing what you eat for breakfast and I plan to try that. I have been eating buckwheat hot cereal for the past week but it has been a bit too fiber filled. I usually eat hot cereal mix of 5 grains…"
"Hi Charles, I have no problem if that's what you want to do, and I was just trying to think things through myself about correlations of diabetic and vegan populations. I know it was subjective, and I said I hope I'm wrong and that it was…"

"Ingrid, we have to start somewhere, so for a first approximation we just have to assume averages. If you can point me to sources of better data I would appreciate it.

I'm type 1, so I don't have to watch the fat quite so much. If you've already seen the ppk, you probably already know about fat free vegan too. When I first went vegan, I couldn't find any diabetics, and now they're turning up everywhere. Or maybe we're all just speaking up now.
