    Which one is the "Legend" the man or the chimp? If he is a diabetic I bet big pharma love him. Check out his profile.

    Type two diabetic-low carb diet (50 carbs per day) and two 500mg Metformin pills per day. Apart from diagnosis HbA1c almost 12-all HbA1c results none diabetic. For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !

    Yep!! If you are a low carber she hits the report button bleating "It's about support only and don't mention diet,please no 'us and them' and please think of the children" and if you eat loads of junk then lot's of Kudos will come your way from Kat...Sure glad she's not on here anymore as I would have blown up big time by now! bom

    That's the trouble with the forum Beardie, people ARE worried about what they post as there are some many edits, bans, complaints, deletions etc. It's killed the place. So many good, knowledgeable people banned for trying to educate others. The place is full of fence sitters with no opinion on anything and the best advice you'll usually get is "see your doc" or "everything in moderation" !

    Talking of wind ups, I have had one hell of a session on twitter today with some dietitians, one of which was Catherine Collins chairwoman of the British Dietetic Association. A completely clueless bunch without a doubt. Passing the buck for their lamentable dietary advice to DUK another useless outfit.

    The BDA has been revueing their type two diet information for some time. With this in mind I had a look over there this afternoon. They have some info for type two's and still pushing the useless eatwell plate. This info caught my eye, they are saying and I quote "The ideal HbA1c is between 48–58mmol/mol" for a type two diabetic. That's between 6.5 and 7.5 in old money. Nothing could be further from the truth. The ideal is non diabetic BG numbers and so many of us have achieved it, though not by following the eatwell plate.

    More fun and games tomorrow when I take the BDA on again.

    This is Catherine Collins head of the BDA, looks like she follows her own dietary advice to me. I am sticking with the beautiful Franziska. Have you ever noticed how many big name dietitians are in the morbidly obese range? I have. Would you take flying lessons from a kamikaze pilot?

    This is another great dietitian I follow.


    Her site is here http://www.dietitiancassie.com/about/

    Get a grip Beardie, I don't care what weight or shape a person is, I was nigh on morbidly obese once, but I don't earn a living telling people how to eat. The like of that dietitian, who is way over weight, slags off what has been the salvation of millions.

    It's not directed at anyone in particular Beardie. I just wanted to prevent any potential bad feeling. We wouldn't stop anyone having their say but I just don't want anyone getting upset.

    Get a grip Beardie, I don't care what weight or shape a person is, I was nigh on morbidly obese once, but I don't earn a living telling people how to eat. The like of that dietitian, who is way over weight, slags off what has been the salvation of millions.

    Learn some control.

    Are you winding me up Beardie? you are the one effing and losing your rag.

For over eight years my diabetes medication has not changed. My weight has remained stable, I have suffered no ill effects from my diet whatsoever. Every blood test has proved, I took the right road to my diabetic salvation. For almost seven years, I have asked medical professionals and naysayers, how do I maintain non diabetic BG levels on two Metformin other than low carb ? The silence has been deafening !
