I was surprised to learn that well-known diabetes writer David Mendosa (Type 2 DM) has switched from a very low-carb diet to a low-carb vegetarian diet, eating no more than 50 grams/day of carbohydrate. Why?
For me the issue is that I don’t want to be responsible for harming sentient beings as much as I can avoid it while still following a healthy diet.
I can respect that. I’m sure he’s monitoring the effects of the diet on his blood sugars and weight. Probably his blood lipids, too.
It sounds like all David had to do was drop fish from his prior diet. He still eats eggs (whites only?), cheese, and full-fat yogurt, so I’d call him a lacto-ovo-vegetarian.
If you’re already convinced that the Paleolithic diet is the best one for people with diabetes, read no further.
