    Very useful information, especially the signs and symptoms of possible carb intolerance. Also like your suggestion of moderate carb diet with most carbs coming from plant based foods.

    Being interested in child nutrition and health, I noted your point about weight gain at 8-9 years of age. Are you aware of any data that shows the prevalence of this weight gain at this age? Also, does it happen in a short period of time or builds over time through the toddler years? Thank you.

    The research of Pat Catalano, MD – an ob/gyn researcher who is big in the world of gestational diabetes – if you google him his wealth of research is what shows that babies adiposity at birth relates to their adiposity at 8 years old. We are not discovering that babies are born with double of body fat they are supposed to have (8 % vs. now 16%) along with fatty liver disease which unfortunately sets the tone for the rest of their lives.
