"In 2014, for example, the Coca Cola Company would teach dieticians about Coaching Your Clients Toward Lasting Weight Loss.” The $50,000 Gold Sponsorship allowed the company to spread the message that sugar is not harmful to children. Thanks, Coca Cola."

Thanks for posting a great article. I love Dr. Fung. He doesn't miss a beat and he reall gets it as far as the medical "profession" is concerned.

I am blessed with a great doctor.I wear an insulin pump and when I eat I take my sugar,put sugar in the pump and carbs and activate the pump.By doing this helps to control sugar and it helps you with nutrition. I feel blessed.

That is great coming from a doctor! Sorry he threw his colleagues under the bus, but they need to be run over. This is why doctors are not golden and we need to find ways that work for us around them if need be. It is hard to wrap your minds around some of these things because we grew up believing it was all true.

Here is my favorite quote from the blog:

"I am not angry at Big Food. Their job is to sell food. I am not angry at Fast Food. Their job is to sell food. No, they cannot betray us because we never trusted them. We knew their motives and made the appropriate adjustment.

Who betrayed us? Who sold us down the river? None other than our own medical associations, our own doctors. We have seen the enemy, and it is ourselves. We trusted these medical associations to have our best interests at heart. They repaid us with the ultimate betrayal. For shame. For shame."

It is easy to believe what is comfortable and what tastes good and blame others for our own mistakes. I do have to say, that I am really saddened that some in the medical profession do this. It puts a black eye on those who want to help and those who think outside the accepted, though be it contrived, norm.

You find some of the best stuff Steve and I am really loving Jason Fung.

Thanks for posting! I can't get enough of Dr. Fung. I am learning so much from him. He makes so much sense and explains the how's and why's regarding all the mistakes in treating diabetes. I am looking forward to constructing a new plan for myself, incorporating his concepts. Brilliant man.

I would enjoy some collaboration with you on your plan. He is also one I am trying to incorporate into my daily living as well. Maybe we could privately email and share notes?

Sure. I admit though that I'm a bit overwhelmed with info and feel as though I am starting over. His approach is basically opposite of what has been ingrained in me. I have to take this is baby steps.

Baby steps are the way to go. I find if I take on too much or too radical of a thing, I tend to fail.
