    Rather go to work on an egg methinks ! Graham From a blog post Graham put up last night.

    From this blog post here. http://thelowcarbdiabetic.blogspot.co.uk/2013/12/belvita-breakfast-failed-science.html

    "Last weekend the Food and Drink Team took Belvita Breakfast to BDA Live, the annual British Dietetics Association conference. As headline sponsor the team was on hand to help keep the dietitians going all morning. Whether they visited the breakfast bar or attended the breakfast workshops they had the opportunity to hear about the science and nutrition behind the brand. The conference was a great success with 82% of dietitians agreeing Belvita Breakfast is a good option for breakfast and 71% admitting we had changed their previous perception."

    Belvita Breakfast is a high carb, highly processed junk food that no one needs, but let's not forget, "82% of dietitians agreeing Belvita Breakfast is a good option for breakfast" and "71% admitting they had changed their previous perception" Changed their perception, a few free samples and some propaganda from the PR reps and they change their minds, wonderful. Check out the failed science experiment that is the Belvita Breakfast at link three.

    Now, we should be standing back in awe of this wonder product because it took 18 years to develop as can be seen here.   http://www.bdaworkready.co.uk/

    So there you have it, whole fresh food or the Belvita Breakfast as endorsed and recommended by the BDA no wonder the obesity epidemic gets worse by the day. I may track that fella down and treat him to some eggs, bacon and mushrooms, oh and a bloody reality check.

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 !

    Not sure if he's a dietitian Chris, if not then he's clearly following the BDA dietary guidelines  bitenails

    I wouldn't eat Belvita if that was the result.

    Actually I wouldn't eat Belvita full stop.
