RD’s Type 1 Grit Facebook Group has been a Godsend, helping followers like my wife, Moni, and I understand how to control blood sugars with nutrition.
During our years on this journey, RD has become a great friend, inspiration, and mentor.
RD and I recently discussed my book, Big Fat Keto Lies, and the ways each lie can negatively impact people with type 1 diabetes.
It was heartening to dig deeper into the story of how RD’s response turned his son’s diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes into a victory for his family—one that has overflowed into the lives of many grateful beneficiaries. It is a fantastic story of how a father’s love for his son led him to discover that optimal nutrition plays an essential role in diabetes management, and how to make that discovery actionable.
