I have reactive hypoglycemia. In order to fix it, I'm now following a paleo zone diet. My hypoglycemia has improved a lot. Although my basal (fasting) glycemia is 109 and I'm very skinny. Maybe too high considering how and what I eat (doctors say... (more)
I'm lucky to have three good local butchers who stock high quality meats. However, the meat that is usually on offer seems to have been bred to be low-fat, e.g. a leg of lamb liberates zero juices, chicken only comes skinless, and you can forget... (more)
So, I haven't researched this too deeply; mostly I've just gotten the bare bones of Dr. Rosedale's theories on the matter. Basically it's the same research the CRON people are working with, except that he advocates restriction of calories not... (more)
