    What is it that Dr. Edelman adds to 2% Greek yogurt to flavor it?

    Great video! Will share with my patients, especially newly diagnosed PWD1. I appreciate your “real life” examples and explanations.

    I kind of wish you’d address more Whole Food strategies – plain Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, chia seed pudding, etc. Also, I don’t know about others, but coffee in and of itself tends to spike my blood sugar. Maybe it’s the ‘Dawn effect’ but I have to bolus for my morning Joe!

      Thank you for your comment and yes, bolusing for coffee is common for a lot of people!

    I don’t have time to waste with videos, put a transcript online and I can read it in 1/4 the time.

    Totally enjoy both Drs and their help.
    Food has always been a problem for me. Have you thought of making and selling a cookbook with all these wonderful recipes? If so, I would certainly buy one (and use it). This would be a great help.

      Thanks Sandy! It has been an idea for awhile, and we hope to be able to do one someday. Thanks for your kind words!

    What about the fact that eating breakfast helps your liver not release sugar?

  8. I have the same reaction to a bowl of cold cereal. But why is it that this makes your blood sugar skyrocket?
