When I discovered “Low Carb Paleo“, I had already experienced the benefits of lowering carbohydrates including reduced consumption of sugar, grains and starches. Therefore, the “primal leap” for me was not the vast canyon that it is for most of you. For me … it was more like a skip. :)
For most of you, I KNOW IT IS DIFFICULT! Especially when your entire support system will belittle and discourage you. Many do not believe low carb paleo works for diabetes. :(
Diabetes Warrior Group
Support is important, that’s why I created a Facebook Group, “Diabetes-Warrior.net“.
Note: Be forewarned, this is not a coddling, cuddling, enabling group… it’s tough love. You will get information and support, but cradled in the warmth of tough love. ;)

I understand, you need proof low carb paleo works for diabetes, I get it. :) Below all the ‘low carb paleo’ proof you will ever need.
My Personal Diabetes Story
Much of this blog testifies to my experiences, successes and a few failures in following low carb paleo for managing my diabetes.
I just celebrated my “Six Year Low Carb Paleo Anniversary in Pictures“. I think this post is ‘telling’, because I show pictures from each of the last six years. I have maintained my weight loss since 2009. :)
I’ve done many exercise experiments, food experiments and food journals… it’s all there for you. I’ve written over 600 posts and pages, in 6+years of writing on this site. My ‘diabetes life’ is an open book.
In all of my experiments (high carb, low carb, high fiber, low fiber etc) … low carb paleo is the best for diabetes.
from “real people”. This link, will take you to a listing of ‘low carb paleo success stories‘. All have either greatly reduced drugs and insulin OR have completely weaned off drugs and insulin as I have done.
KNOW THIS, there are many others that have done this as well. As a percentage of the 25 million diabetics we are a small group… but as we share our stories the numbers grow. :)
I hear this often, “Ok, your personal story is great but I want real proof. I want to see scientific proof, well here you go. :)
Low Carb as the first approach to treating diabetes. This is a “MUST READ”.
This next group of articles is from Stephan Guyenet, these articles are powerful!
The most influential, Mark Sisson of MarksDailyApple. When I read this post, “Diabetes“. it opened up another level of paleo knowledge and understanding for me. I that post, my ‘nutritional epiphany’.
Next is Richard Nikoley. He has an awesome site, “Free the Animal‘. I don’t share a lot of his articles because his foods have gravitated to higher carb foods. BUT I love his posts … very witty, very irreverent at times but always RELEVANT and entertaining.
Richard taught me to stand up, be heard and ‘take no shit’. I’ll never forget when he told me, “No one can argue with your personal experience.” So true. His Website again is Free the Animal.
Dr. Ayers, of “Cooling Inflammation“. He is a PhD I read and heed. :)
Dr. Grace Liu of “Animal Pharm“. Gave me early confirmation on a ‘low carb paleo’ approach.
LAST but not least is this video of a study, “Is Anyone Winning at Losing?” done my Dr. Gardner, a Nutrition PhD from Stanford. His study compared several diets from low carb to high carb, low carb won for heart health, weight loss and glucose control.
Oh yeah and he’s a 25 yr vegetarian. :)
