Blood Sugar 101 is another really good book, but I am only 26% of the way through it at this point. So far, this is fully supporting the Primal Body, Primal Mind principles. I will keep you posted.
Addendum: I am now 100% through the book and I continued to like it a lot all the way through. She, though, like Dr. Bernstein, is a little lax or not up to snuff on the possible dangers of using Splenda and the Splenda-filled DaVinci Sugar-Free Syrups. I don't want to end up in ten years finding out to my horror, that I was a casualty in a great experiment on a cancer-causing compound or some other fake food monstrosity. I seem to recall that she was recommending American sliced cheese, too (Ugh! Full of toxic vegetable oil!)
I was described pretty thoroughly in there, so now I have an addition to my prevention plan. Apparently, I must avoid a religious zeal for my chosen diet and continue to plan occasional (no more than weekly) carb treats to prevent making an obsession about carbs that could come back and compel me to binge on them. Hmmmm.
The part about religious zeal is going to be difficult for me, since I am by nature, a teaching person. I guess if I don't start calling people crazy or stupid who eat a lot of sugar and other carbs, I will continue to be all right. Surely, I can continue to teach! I think I can manage that much.
I always want to teach, though, but must continue realizing that not everyone's metabolism is the same.
