I happened across another interesting thing...can't remember what I was looking for now, but this is a book that was printed in the early 1900s...maybe around 1917 or so. It has plenty of recommendations that have been disproven, but what I found significant is that EVEN THEN, the dietary plan suggested for diabetics followed the low-carb recommendations that we know. It even discusses the metabolic pathways for the disease (so far as they knew or could educate their readership at the time). It's unbelievable to me that so many of the nutritional "experts" continue to insist that there's no good basis for it, how harmful it is, la, la, la.

I don't know if you can get to it from a link. I will try. If not, you can find it by searching on scholar.google.com for "Feeding the Family" (use quotes, it will be a faster search). There's a link on the hit page for the ebook. Click on that and scroll through to the diabetic section.

here's the link. Hope it works!

I tested the link, and it works from HERE, at least. On the top left of that page is a red button for the ebook. If you go to the ebook, the information on diabetics is on *the book's* page 314, but that's page 344 (?) on my computer.

I know this seems kind of involved...but it was a worthwhile bit of supporting info to me. If you have a few moments, check it out.
