We follow a diet prescribed by our endocrinologist; me, for weight loss and "metabolic derangement" LOL... and my husband for T2D. I started first. It's restricted-carb and Primal-ish... just meaning we eat "real", whole foods. He'd like to keep our daily carbs ketogenic (30-50 g) but although I was able to accomplish that at first, I've been at it long enough that I've crept up to 50-100 g most days. It's still working, in any case - just more slowly.

I've been able to lose a lot of weight, and still trickling down... I also have better energy and reduction of some of my autoimmune symptoms. One improvement which is quite a relief is that I'm slowly healing a rough case of leaky gut. I still have to be vigilant, but it's greatly improved.

For the diabetes, he's been able to get off any oral meds, and is taking insulin now only as needed, based upon his BG readings. It's not a frequent necessity any longer. 

Despite detractors and dire warnings from the SAD crowd, it's been very beneficial for us.

I have followed WeightWatchers since 2002.  I worked for them for 9 years.  I lost 60 pounds and my cholesterol improved. I enjoy the variety of foods and how healthy I feel.

Last year I discovered, and subsequently fell in love with, the paleo diet.  I originally spent about 5 months on it and I noticed some interesting things.  First, let me say that I've been a life-long sufferer of allergies/food allergies and migraines.  Once I removed grains from my diet (eliminating dairy was easy because I'm allergic and avoid it at all cost anyways) I noticed that I had no migraines at all.  This was significant considering I was getting debilitating migraines 3 or so times a month.  I went back to a standard diet for about 3 months and the migraines, digestive issues, mood swings/irritability all came back with a vengeance.  I'm now on the paleo diet full time and I feel great.  My joints don't hurt, I sleep better, I haven't had a headache in months, I burn fat like crazy and I find it's easier to keep muscle mass.  The more research I do, the more I agree that a grain-/dairy-free diet boasts significant benefits.

Also, I'm new here.  Hello.
