Eating nothing but fiberous veggies and drinking water and taking vitamins will allow a overweight person to live and force their fat ass to burn the fat for the store energy that it has. A pound of fat has 4,000 calories. 20 Pounds overweight means you have enough fat to live on for forty days. As long as you maintain a very marginal carbohydrate intake and some protein you can live, well.
I think we have a different view of what average as well as sedentary means.
Also, carbs are not needed to survive, so right back at ya
edit/ No you did not say it was "needed to survive" but it's my interpretation of what you wrote. If you meant basal metabolic rate, i stand corrected. I meant the average person's day as a whole. I didn't want to complicate things.
I couldn't count on that people on this kind of forum would know much on the subject, but you clearly proved me wrong.

BTW get your iron levels check, High iron levels and iron loading can cuase type1 like diabetes symptoms in people who should not be diabetic.
My wife has been living with this disease for 25years, I know way more about, its cuases and its research then I would have ever cared to.
I'm sorry to hear that. About your wife i mean. Yes, but you can counteract the resistance with exercise. And i love exercise. Also, I've only had it for let's see.. 4 years in November. I see a lot of "diabetes cure" related papers, but when you read them it usually is in rats, or very experimental. But I'm a young guy, so I'm holding my thumbs for a cure. But I'm also a realist, i mean, they've been saying a cure is "five years away" since the 70's. But i think when it does come, i believe type 1 will be treated very quickly here. If I'm not mistaken, Sweden are among the worst places statistically. And since insulin and everything that goes with it is "free" (paid by tax payers) here, it would be a great economic relif for everyone, that is to say, use that tax money for other things.
