    All the accounts I've seen of type 1 diabetics who went primal seem to indicate they need a lot less insulin. So she was right.

    Or it's a low-carb low-fat diet with lots of toasters ready to be flung into your bathtub. And then lots of Paxil once your boyfriend pries you from the bathroom and makes you go to the doctor.

    It promotes eating plenty of vegetables which happen to be low fat. It is certainly a high-fat diet and obviously high protein.
    I don't actually know what's on the WW diet. But we have the South Beach Diet on the book case and I took a look and it was all about avoiding fat. Sure you can have a little but mostly it was horrible dry diet food. They even warned against liver. I mean, come on! Liver is the most healthy thing you can eat.

    I guess it depends on what you think 'treatment' means. I agree eating low carb helps control insulin responses. But I don't think it restores pancreatic function.
    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.

    Sorry I just saw the above post, when I said 'treatment' I meant in conjunction with insulin therapy, not a 'cure' obviously.

    Saw a large woman at Whole Foods with her food and a drink. Was expecting her to sit down with a sandwich and a diet soda, but to my delighted surprise, she had sauted collards, a chicken leg, and some sweet potatoes on her plate! And her drink was kombucha

    DD started high school and has a combined gym/health class. The gym portion is standard games, with a focus on teamwork, and "fitness" training, with a focus on measuring improvements. They have a tricked out work out room with all the machines and a nice free weight set up. Most of the kids are fixated on the ellipiticals and the climbing wall, but they learn to use everything.

    The biggest shocker to me was a lesson on weight, diet and exercise. The usual CW on food, but when discussing exercise the teacher said (as reported by DD), "Yeah, you can burn a lot of calories running, but if you really want to burn calories, you need to lift weights, and heavy stuff so you get stronger, because your muscles are what really burn the calories and they'll do that 24/7 if you just make them stronger." Now if they could just get over the low fat, healthy grains mantra.

    Drew the blood of a morbidly obese woman who had lost 100 pounds by eating more fat. It's happening, the world is changing. I'm seeing it from the inside.

    Actually, there was a remarkable success story with a six year old child, I think it was. She was diagnosed Type 1 Diabetes, and her parents were trying to help and tried a strict paleo diet. Her pancreas must not have been completely gone, because the function came back. But I would imagine this would only work on newly diagnosed children.
