Who here is doing low sugar dieting? Are you doing this in combination with reducing calorie intake and exercising? Are you getting results? Do you suspect you are "insulin resistent?" Has anyone heard of this book (below): The Schwartzbein Principle A physician writes a book that largely advocates a high protein diet. Very generally speaking...I don't think avoiding carbs in a major way and never eating sweets is the answer. But I do think if one notices a problem in this area, to reduce carbs, etc. is a very good idea. I am concerned that as we get older, almost all of us might have issues here. As someone mentioned, lifting weights might be helpful....what else? If we avoid sugar, use portion control and lift weights is that enough??? Ideas?
