Maybe you have resources to find out why Jimmy Moore takes something called glycosolve to keep his blood sugars very low. I believe his HbA1c is 4.3. He got these numbers in just a few months. I wonder why he needs glycosolve if his high fat diet is reducing blood sugars.

Perhaps Atkins' diet contained too much protein because some (he gives no numbers) of his patients "adjust" as he puts it and their blood sugars rise. He did not eliminate protein from their diets but added carbs.

Jimmy Moore gives lots of numbers to show how healthy he is (and ignores his very high cholesterols) but I do not believe he says he ever took a glucose tolerance test. Atkins says to go off his diet before a gtt or else you will test diabetic. In would love to have Jimmy do this for his followers (without going off his diet.)

Mr. Moore has his own HbA1c meter which I would love to have but they are very expensive. And do they work well?

He says that about a year and a half after starting the Atkins diet he started to gain weight. About nine years later he went on the "nutritional ketosis" diet. And lost 78 pounds. So he has been on his diet for a few months. Let's keep an eye on him. I really think it is too soon to award him the health prize yet.

Do you know how long the subjects in the article you sent were on this diet? Or are we just talking about mice here?
