About 3 years ago I was told by my GP that I was "pre-diabetic". She told me to cut-out carbs (basically Atkins diet). I was sceptical but gave it a try.

It was difficult to give up wheat products such as bread and pasta as well as rice and (very hard) beer. I stuck it for about 6 months after which my indicators had all returned to normal and I felt as healthy as I have ever felt.

Subsequently, I have drifted away from the low-carb regime (we live in an ocean of carbs) and am paying the price. I do intend to go back to it over this summer, the beer is a problem though!

Chomsky said that he always reads the FT (& WSJ) because their audience really need accurate info to make their speculative bets!
