I watched this on my Wimp app last week.  He does a nice job explaining how he didn't fit the profile of the typically overweight person who develops diabetes. He does not however, differentiate type 1 and type 2 diabetes very well with his theory.  He also does not talk about the small number of people who just have the capacity to deal with the disease.

Quoted from Tom Martens

He does not address Type1 so far as I can tell.

Also, I don't think he was attempting to give answers so much as raise questions. There was no claim that his thought was the answer, only one possible answer that addresses a portion of the population.

In other words, individuality. I saw several parallels/similarities with BTD.
