Who I Am – I am Gary Noreen, also know as YODA. I have been Type 2 diabetic for 19 years. I read Dr. Bernstein’s book soon after I was diagnosed and quickly found that the low carb diet he promoted was effective for treating my diabetes.
I have no formal training in nutrition beyond a couple of hours of class soon after I was diagnosed. I am an engineer retired from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory of the California Institute of Technology in 2010. In my 20 years at JPL, I worked on numerous advanced interplanetary mission studies and Deep Space Network studies as a Telecommunications Engineer, a Telecommunications Architect and a Systems Architect. I also started a satellite radio venture and have four issued patents and one pending patent in the field of telematics.
I am personally responsible for all the information and analysis and opinions on this web site.

Are you getting any money from this site? No. I purchased all the food and test gear myself. I have no connection with any food company.
Why YODA? YODA was my KGB code name in the cold war. I was a double agent – my FBI code name was Beethoven. True story.
