and to The Beach.
I'm Type II as well and somewhat agree with a Phase II start. SBD has really stabilized my BGL - I test at 6.0 on the HA1C so am in good control.
The problem with Phase I can be that our blood sugars could drop too low. This was a problem with the original Phase I. However, now that dairy, tomatoes and legumes are added, Phase I could be used with careful monitoring of your BGL to ensure it doesn't drop too low.
