I have been practicing a low carbohydrate or ketogenic diet since being prescribed with prediabetes in 2016. I've been influenced by the work of Gary Taubes, Nina Teicholz, Steve Phinney, Jeff Volek, David Ludwig, etc. I have found it very helpful for weight loss , prevention of progression to diabetes, lowering triglycerides, and providing a sense of increased energy and mental acuity. I've found the Diet Doctor website very helpful in practicing this diet, both the scientific information it provides and its recipes.
