    Not a Type 1 diabetic.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    I'm currently 5 months pregnant. and I had my first doctor tell me that I must eat bread or the baby won't get enough nutrients.

    SO.... I switched doctors. My new doctor said the most important thing for the baby is nutrition, and a diet high in fat and protein. Now if only I could understand what else he says (we moved to the deep south, he sounds like yosemite sam)

    I'd love to have these doctors call each other to explain themselves.

    Er - sounds very much like you are confusing that with weight watchers. It's generally a less extreme and more measured version of Atkins.

    It promotes eating plenty of vegetables which happen to be low fat. It is certainly a high-fat diet and obviously high protein.

GW: ~24% BF - have ditched the scales til I fit into a pair of UK size 10 bootcut jeans. Currently aligning towards 'The Perfect Health Diet' having swapped some fat for potatoes.

    My son who is vegetarian by choice (and hardly eats/drinks dairy) decided that he doesn't like butter because he thinks of butter as his Dad's Nuttelex, which he has been discouraged from eating. Then one day I decided to encourage him to give butter a try and cooked him scrambled eggs in butter. Although he was resistant, he was ecstatic at how yummy it was and said in awe, "this taste like magic!".

Shrimp, scampi in drawn butter, steak, chicken, primal-friendly veggie side dishes, fruit for dessert. I'll admit that my relatives *did* go out of their way to ensure that there was "something" I could eat there, but it was nice to see that everyone else, normally accustomed to grains & sugars, also enjoyed an almost totally primal feast and didn't seem to notice the absence of breads and sweets.
    That's a good family you've got there.

    Well, yeah. A low-carb, low-fat diet is called "protein starvation" or "rabbit starvation" and it can kill you, in a really slow and horrible process... no sane person would voluntarily subject themselves to that long-term.
    Today I will: Eat food, not poison. Plan for success, not settle for failure. Live my real life, not a virtual one. Move and grow, not sit and die.

    Hee hee... and thus we sneak into his psyche and win him over to the dark side!

    My kid did the same thing with sour cream. Hated it for 20 years, then had some again and changed his mind. Now he loves it.
