As a fat diabetic I have found some hope with the keto diet with intermittent fasting. I am eating one meal a day like tonight a small steak with butter sauce with eggplant squash onion bell pepper and cauliflower cooked in olive oil. And tomorrow and the next day will fast. This extreme diet will yield over the next few days maybe 3 pounds weight loss. Genetics? I guess. Over the past couple months I have lost over 20 lbs though so little by little the weight comes off. All the other diets failed due to extreme hunger. Anyway, the keto diet kills hunger. Not cravings though if you fast. Wheat products cause hunger and blood sugar spikes. My two cents worth. Good vid Jeff

Nahh just carboload hang over

Yea the hunger is way limited on the low carb diet. I found moderate ketosis is way better than the deep purple ketosis way too jittery and amphetamine like. Guess we won’t have to worry about any ketosis come thanksgiving lol.

Jeff the Pharmacist you right son. I just watched the vid about mainly fructose that was linked before. I wish I would’ve paid more attention to my diet before I got the dreaded diagnosis. Oh well. The diabetic diet is a good one for most older people anyway I think.

Thanks! I think the theory is kind of strong because you can also see it when you eat. Can't eat nearly as much if you don't have carbs, even though the food is delicious.

Anyone who’s interested in this theory should watch this excellent lecture by Dr. Robert Lustig https://youtu.be/dBnniua6-oM that’s titled Sugar: The Bitter Truth. It goes into a much broader and technically deeper explanation than Jeff could provide in such a short video.
