"Type-1 diabetics, can eat any and all foods, but they have to be cognizant of the effect and impact. There is a difference between cannot, and should be cognizant of the side effects."
This is only partially true. Elimination of all foods that cause radical impact IS a viable solution. Foods that do not cause the spike are foods that do not cause the weight to be packed on. Complete elimination of them is really the ONLY solution. And they tend to be foods that many athletes eliminate, so it can, and is done successfully
We all have to deal with remarks from unkind people who simply don't understand, and lack experience. The line we have to personally draw is when we deceive ourselves. You don't need empty platitudes, I agree, nobody does. What people need is to seek out the people who have actually been where you are and come back from it. What they discovered is that the entire medical approach of "you can eat anything anyone else does, just be cognoscente of it's impact" is seriously flawed, it isn't helpful or true, not if you want to have optimal health.
Those foods are poison to people with a particular metabolic reaction to them. They must be eliminated entirely and replaced with foods that are neutral or have a positive impact.
There are people all over the internet that have accomplished it, they aren't difficult to find, but their conclusions are difficult to accept when the medical establishment is determined to keep people perpetual patients, and patients are unwilling to make the necessary changes.
You, and people with similar conditions, need support and positive approaches, and I'm here to tell you, it IS out there if you just look for it and ignore the others that don't really care.
