I follow the Bernstein 6-12-12 program. Just wondered who else follows it. I started it two years ago and was able to eliminate all of my diabetic medicine and maintain BG control through diet and exercise.

I have read extracts of the book, it makes some sense but is too strict for my personal tastes. However, for whatever reason talk of his plan always gets heated. Unfortunately there seem to be a hardcore minority of people who follow the plan that think it's the ONLY way to manage diabetes and anyone who disagrees with it even slightly is wrong and an idiot. I don't know why it is but it's almost cult like and sometimes get quite nasty. Hopefully this won't turn that way.

Actually I understand that everyone is different, and that what works for one person doesn't always work for someone else. I was just curious as to what other people used to control their diabetes.

Sorry, that wasn't aimed at you. Most people are like you, but some are not and discussions about this particular topic can get heated.

Thanks for the information I would love to get off my meds and if this helps I'm willing to try.
