I have lost 6 lbs. in about 8 days and I'm using about 25% of the insulin I was using. This is an incredible diet plan, and I'm very pleased so far with the results. I hope to be able to reverse my diabetes or at least cut my insulin way down. I have been taking 3 shots of Humalog--15 units at each meal--and 1 shot of Lantus at bedtime. Now I'm taking about 1 shot of Humalog about 7 units a day and have cut my Lantus in half also.
