Re: Type 2 diabetes

Except they still don't get it. "'We believe this shows that type 2 diabetes is all about energy balance in the body,' said Taylor."

Carbohydrate consumption has been linked to type 2 diabetes for years and low carb diets have successfully treated diabetes. (All links wfs)
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1325029/
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21143928
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20685945

So, in this case the put people on a 600 calorie/day diet, which by definition is a low carbohydrate diet, and their diabetes improves. Shocking.

I don't think a low carb diet is right for everyone (or even most). But it definitely has its place. Unfortunately, some in the medical/nutrition community are so anti low carb, they will put forth any other explanation rather than say carbohydrate restriction may be healthy for some.
