Richard was once CTO of Developer Express. He hired Mark Miller. He's a programmer like us. Basically, Richard got diabetes, learned about the ketogenic diet, did it, lost 80 pounds and reversed diabetes, and flaunted it on Facebook. He did exactly the opposite of what the Australian Diabetes Association told him to do. He ate fatty meats, eggs, and butter; and drastically cut carbs. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes also in 2015. I went keto in February 2016 after reading the research Richard shared with me. Within 6 months I had lost 80 pounds and reversed it. We started a podcast shortly after I started to document my journey. It blew up. It's now downloaded more than .NET Rocks. We started a Facebook group, then a forum which now has 30,000 members. We also started doing a local Ketogenic Food and Science Festival which has been successful 2 years in a row. We continue to touch the lives of thousands of people. You can see some of the success stories.
