But first, a big announcement! Jimmy Moore, of Livin' La Vida Low

put out one of these digests each quarter at least, if not more often.

Insulin's Evil Twin
From the Learn Something New Every Day Files: While writing The
Glycemic Load Cookbook, I learned something fascinating from Dr. Rob
Thompson: Insulin has an "evil twin," a compound called amylin For every
molecule of insulin the beta cells in your pancreas create, they also
create a molecule of amylin. Your body can get rid of small quantities
