How about doing something worthy as a group?

Lets invade and infect http://www.facebook.com/AmericanDiabetesAssociation

Show them our success stories, make comments, etc.  Infect them with our knowledge.

Anyone?

The Facebook NAZIs won't allow you to disagree with the beliefs of a page owner.  They have an automated system that pops up and warns you that your comment is irrelevant. If that doesn't work the suspend you from making comments for 3 days or lock you out of your account.  Second offense you get 7 days and then 30 days.

I posted this comment:

"Have you guys heard about Paleo Diet? Primal Diet? Caveman Forum? Raw Paleo Diet Forum? Blood sugars are steady and low on those forums... anyone?"

Is this suave enough?

Be a great idea to post actual studies at strategic points for sure.

I'd be all for it if I had a personal testimony, but I was never diabetic, so I wouldn't be comfortable with this particular area. I've been having a mico-effect on my office since people recently started noticing my body composition changing drastically and rapidly. People can't stop asking me about it, and I am always happy to chat away about Paleo.

I think your approach was good though!

I think it is better to answer questions of people that you interact with on a daily, weekly or monthly basis than invading other places.  Even people you haven't seen in years will say 'hey what did you do?'   There has been plenty of information out there for the past 40+ years that the ADA approach usually fails.

 I am a diabetic, and if you go to the forums on the ADA website, you will learn that 'most' diabetics do not follow the recommendations. I found the carb suggestions far, far, too high. Ditto with many other diabetics.
 I was fortunate in that my internist is a diabetic and she, right off, said I will rapidly learn that. She suggested lower carbs.
 Since my introduction to Paleo at my DD's, every single one of my morning fasting glucose checks have been under 110. AKA "NORMAL". This does not mean I am cured, it means I am under control.
