    Dr. D so where did the yes it worked or no it didn't work come from? Many people just voting over and over. I was looking at them and with the exception of the vegan and vegetarian diet nothing worked for a whole lot of people.

    The No's seem to be a tad high in most cases. Just curious.

    Here's a new article posted this week on WebMD. Not specific to diabetes but it describes some of the diets in the link above and gives more info:

    Report Rates Best/Easiest Diets

    Deb, it looks like the diets were evaluated by experts and ranked that way. If you click into each diet link you'll find more information about how and why they received rankings. The "vote" buttons seem to be arbitrary as the clicks aren't linked to research or a study. Personally, I'm ignoring the "yes" "no" and just looking at the expert feedback and diet plan details.


    p.s. "Page views" are a way websites measure metrics - a tool used to attract advertisers. My guess is that the "yes/no" option is a strategy to increase page views. My opinion only!
