I have no training as a nutritionist. But SOMEBODY has to figure out what this family is going to eat. In the absence of anyone better qualified, I'm the family's nutritionist. We like to fresh, tasty, healthy meals. It's my job to figure out how.
Lately, I've been reading about high-carbohydrate diets that manage or reverse type-II diabetes. But there is another approach -- a low-carbohydrate diet. Both can cite studies that show the diets they've developed help patients much more than the standard ADA-recommended diet. Both diets show dramatic improvements in insulin sensitivity, blood sugar, blood lipids, and weight loss. As far as I can tell, the only thing they agree on is that diabetics should avoid sugar and white bread. How would a person choose between the two programs?
