When I was 11, my mom and step-dad got divorced, and I turned to food for comfort. Suddenly, I was eating anything I could get my hands on—and it wasn't even junk food most of the time.

In August, a National Institutes of Health-funded study made national headlines, dealing a damning blow to, of all things, a low-carb diet--often recommended for cutting weight and reducing the risk for diabetes. The suggestion from the study: among the 15,000 adults age 45 to 64 studied during a median period of 25 years, those whose carbs consisted of 40 percent or less of their diet had the highest mortality rate.

But Andrew has Type 1 diabetes, and six years ago, in order to control his blood sugar levels, his parents put him on a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet. His mother makes him recipes with diabetic-friendly ingredients that won’t spike his blood sugar, like pizza with a low-carb, almond-flour crust; homemade bread with walnut flour instead of white flour; and yogurt topped with blueberries, raspberries and nuts.
