"We have known that starvation is a good cure for diabetes. If we introduced rationing tomorrow, then we could get rid of diabetes in this country."
WTH? starvation as a cure for disease. starvation which leads to DEATH yeah. ok. being dead you wouldn't have to worry about a metabolism disease. ok. I can't imagine living very long or very well on their 600 calorie diet of non starch veggies and diet drinks. I need a THOUSAND more calories than that.
So they are controlling their diabetes with diet and probably exercise like several million other people do."Three months after the end of the diet, when participants had returned to eating normally and received advice on healthy eating and portion size, most no longer suffered from the condition."
A medical study that only has 11 people isn't much of a study. And it only "worked" for 7 of them.
