NOW THEY TELL US: Diabetes Study Ends Early With a Surprising Result. Of course, I wonder what “diet and exercise” regimen they used in the study.  Instead of following the “recommended” diet which contained both more calories and more carbs than he’d had in years, my husband — after being diagnosed with diabetes — cut his carbs considerably below the most severe Atkins phase and stared exercising a couple of hours a day.  (The diet, which we’re still following, is not dissimilar to Taubes’ recommendations.)  The end result is that he dropped 136 pounds and is not functionally diabetic.  (I.e. he takes nothing, keeps his sugar normal and the very rare indulgence — birthday cake, say — does not cause a spike in sugar.)
