    Under the simplicity of design of the 2PD, one can choose whatever
    macronutritional makeup suits your form of diabetic issue. Since
    large quantities of food are not consumed, the terms "low" or "high"
    are essentially meaningless. There is no high consumption of

    Over time, the "high" or "low" argument tends to be moot anyway.
    Failure rates on Atkins (low carb) or Ornish (low fat) or any other
