I appreciate the effort, but as a Type 2 maintaining non-diabetic numbers with diet and exercise, I find it disappointing that there was NO mention of carbs in the video. This is misleading and only perpetuates the mistaken belief that it's just about sugar (mainly), calories, and fat. It's about ALL carbs, not just sugar (which, along with pasta, mashed potatoes, etc., is just another carb). Every carb that is put into our mouth starts being broken down (into sugar) nearly as soon as it encounters saliva. Please don't think sugar, think carbs. Calories and fat are of course important to weight control, but fat has no carbs and therefore has no effect on blood glucose. So as stated earlier, I appreciate any effort to help my fellow Type 2s, and hope that one day it will be understood that if we're going to eat a huge baked potato, we might as well have a piece of chocolate cake instead.
