Thanks, Susan. Having read that information on the website, I'll rethink my decision to pass up this book. I thought it would just be a rewrite of his previous work, but apparently not.
Very happy to see Dr. Barnard's work getting a wider readership/viewership. On another larger forum for diabetics, his name elicits some very strong and ugly statements. "Quack" is one of the milder ones. These statements are made by folks married to the notion that carbohydrates are poison for us, and anyone endorsing them should be tarred and feathered. No point in discussing the matter with them; the low carbohydrate diet is like a religion to them.
