So, I've recently decided I need to get my diabetes management in line so that I can have a child in the next couple of years. So, I joined this site and I checked out Dr. Berstein's book Diabetes Solution: The Complete Guide to Achieving Normal Blood Sugars.
To be honest, this information has been pretty altering. In the past I've tried vegetarian and vegan diets, convinced eating animal protein was toxic and making us fat. I lost 30lbs staying off animal protein and cut my insulin in half, but still had a 7.2%A1C. My care wasn't that good. And it was incredibly hard to stick to.
Anyway, this information is far from what I was practicing, and I'm having trouble believing it. I have heard a lot of bad things about the similar diet,the Adkins diet--like that it's causes keytones. Anyway, I'd love to hear from folks who have experience with Dr. Berstein's regimen or any counter arguments.
