I listened to the webcast. The first topic was how to gain weight (mostly for a type 1) on a restricted/low carb diet. The answer given by Dr. Bernstein - ****as I understood it****- was to eat more protein and cover it with more insulin if necessary at the meal in which the extra protein was eaten. Protein also needs insulin, but not nearly as much as carbs. Also, insulin is a weight gaining hormone. Again, this is only my understanding. Be sure to run this by your doctor.
