It depends on the "type" of diabetes. In some diabetic patients going very low carb can be deadly. It just depends on the severity. Low carb can be beneficial to some though, I do agree.

My main point really, is that we have to take each person on their own individual characteristics, consider what they have to train with, and other variables, and set up diet and training around this premise.

How was your day, Brute?
