This really helps explain why when I was first dealing with my diabetes, I was afraid to eat carbs and almost cut them out. I did much better back then before my doctor and almost everyone else told me I had to consume carbs to be balanced. I just want to feed my body useful nutrients. This was a great video, thank you.

Excellent Steve. I read the whole transcript.
I need help. Wen someone responds to my discussion and the bold
4 replies appears, but there is nothing below that, how do you find that reply?
What does that mean? Many time all the replies are there but sometimes not.
I don't get it! I check my email, but there is nothing there. Where did that reply go? Thanks

Thank you! this video is a real eye opener. All my life I had auto-conditioned myself to avoid any fat based food. With diabetes and obesity in particular, this video is just right for me. I had a lingering doubt in the past, on the composition of the marco nutrients. if I had to reduce carb, then either fat or protein needs to go up considering to keep the overall calories constant. I was struggling to agree whether it should be Protein or Fat. Now it looks like no harm, or rather good to have high fat.

I almost skipped over watching this video, but decided to give it a chance. I'm glad i did. Thanks Steve. Very informative and lots of great information. This is why I'm making an honest attempt (no promises how long it is going to last) at going lower in carb than I have been (i've moved from about 120 a day down to 50-70 a day). So far on this new experiment, my weight is dropping off from me and my blood sugars are fantastic. I'm having a bit of a difficult time eating a lot of meats, mainly because of the price, beef is expensive, I'm sticking with a lot of boneless chicken breast and a lot of legumes. But, what I'm doing seems to be working, at least for now. Thanks for posting this. HUGS, Heidi
