Good story about a doctor who developed Type 2 diabetes,  his journey to cure himself with diet (teaser–it didn’t take long), and his subsequent nutritional research.  Good read.  I think I’m going to stop using the term “low carb.”  There’s such a BS, ignorance-driven stigma attached to it.  I think from now on I’m gonna call it eating an “appropriate carb” diet.
