    Tomorrow is a very important day for low carb.

    "It promises to be a revelation and not just about nutrition science. The Health Profession’s Council of South Africa’s hearing against world-renowned Cape Town scientist Prof Tim Noakes begins on November 23, on behalf of the Association for Dietetics in SA (ADSA). Noakes, who is also a medical doctor, is facing a charge of unprofessional conduct for giving “unconventional advice” on breastfeeding over a social network. Here’s a sneak preview of what’s really behind this peculiar case, and why dietitians are so threatened by him and Banting, as low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diets are also known."

    Check out the full story here.

    So, we arrive at the bun fight at OK Corral. Within a week or so (Tim has requested seven days to present his evidence against the charges) we will see the low carb diet has been exonerated I believe. As Marika Sboros says " Dietitians and their organisations that don’t move with these exciting times and acknowledge the science are becoming increasingly irrelevant – and a public health hazard"

    Interesting days ahead for sure.

    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 !
