    Diabetes – a disease of glucose intolerance

    "Some people control their type 2 diabetes for years on low carb, having perfect blood sugar levels with no medication. So what happens if you then try eating the amount of carbs that people with diabetes are “supposed” to eat?

    Low Carb RN got a continuous glucose monitor and decided to find out:
    …here is where things get crazy.

    I decided to do a meal that follows typical diabetes advice, yes, 60 g of carbs in one meal. I decided to eat no other carbs that day so I would still end the day eating very low carb, but I ate the entire 60 g in one sitting. In addition, I ate processed and refined grains and about three bites of something sweet (“moderation,” lol).

    Hold on to your seats folks…
    Perhaps you can guess what happened?"

    Oh yes, I tried something similar to convince my doctor, only I ate three "diabetic meals" without the mandatory snacks in between.

    Undoubtedly because I had already kicked the crap out of my insulin resistance, my glucose "only" went up to 8 - 10 an hour after eating - highest after breakfast - and by 2 hours it was back to around 6, but from 3 - 4 hours it was 4 or below, thus showing why my HbA1c remained low.

    Normally it seldom breaks 6, and on the rare occasions it goes down to 4 I am no longer symptomatic as I'm largely running on fats and ketones.

    Meanwhile here's Giles Yeo proving he is not diabetic

    and adjacent tweets, accompanied by his usual coterie of dieticians, including Duane Mellor. Clueless, clueless, clueless.
