A friend sent me some information on this diet and at first I thought she was loony but after eating this way for the last 2 months my A1C is almost in range (7.1) down from 9.2. Its the easiest thing I've ever done and I'm feeling so amazing I had to tell you all to check it out. I have another friend who's Type 1 and she's loving it as well. the first few weeks are rough because of the shift in insulin requirements but I wear a pump so I just had to keep adjusting the Basil...still working on it. Its so simple anyone can do this. You eat like a caveman. Nothing out of a package, period. Meat, fruit, vegetables. No grains. And no you cannot eat corn because corn is a grain. No dairy either. Broccoli has calcium so no worries for us ladies but if you're concerned take a calcium chew. When I asked my doc about it he lit up like I'd just given him a million dollar present. He's recommended it to a few patients now and says he's seeing A1C's plummeting and people becoming healthier even within a month of starting it. Down sides are: NO EATING FAST FOOD. There's nothing out there you can have so just don't even try thinking about it. FRIENDS and FAMILY will desert you and call you crazy and argue with you left and right about what you can have. NO POTATOES, too starchy. The way we look at it is we are eating the way our ancestor's ate before we started jacking with food by adding extras we don't need. There's books and things out there but its not worth the money. Just eat fresh. Meat, fruit, veg. Oh and you're not suppose to have coffee but I cheat every morning and have coffee with a little of the Natural Bliss creamer...eh, no body's perfect ;0)

The race is my ball, my running shoe is my glass slipper, the finish line is my prince charming, and accomplishment is my happily ever after.
