I'd actually checked this out from the library a few days prior to meeting with the diabetics counselor and my ob-gyn appointment (where the certified nurse midwife recommended this specific title), so it rose up in my library pile. A lot of recommendations fall in line with what I was told- the plate method (and proportions, light snacks in between meals (which will be a struggle for me because I tend to skip breakfast and I'm not a snacky person), having a light protein snack before bed, etc.

Where Nichols loses me is the suggestion that actually, ketosis is *fine* etc. because my understanding was that that was always more for short term weight loss, and over long term it's not good to be forcing your body to use fats over sugars as fuel (though that's largely because of other recommendations with the way people practice low carb or Atkins style diets). My university biochemistry courses impressed on me that macromolecules aren't inherently bad; it's just about the proportions ingested.

Well cited throughout, though some citations were more like straight quotes from the research papers. I wasn't as big a fan of the mother stories interspersed throughout, though, as anecdote is not evidence (and there was one I felt went to extremes- testing 12 times a day??)

But yeah, gonna eat more eggs and greek yogurt probably.
