Hi CarbDodger, you've been a great addition to this forum. Thank you for coming and Congratulations on your success so far.
Have you read Dr. Bernstein's book on Diabetes, it's excellent. (He doesn't require that low a calorie intake.) He lays out a good regeime for complete remission of Type 2.
Paleobird eats no carbs. She's a carnivore. I will be too, one day.
I wish you the very best of luck.
