    Did you Know - We are Two Years Old !

    Post by Jan1 on Tue Aug 16 2016, 18:09

    Did you know we are two years old!!!

    Yes, it was August 2014 that the low carb diabetic forum launched sunny

    A lot has happened in those two years, people have come and gone ... dis-appeared and come back!
    BUT, we are still here!

    Thanks to all who have written, commented, read and supported the low carb cause.
    There is still much to be done but the word is getting out there (some would say it is out there)

    Diabetics, and those who are not diabetics, can gain so much from living the LCHF lifestyle.
    The choice is down to the individual, but I for one feel good living my life this way.

    But throughout these two years the low carb message remains un-changed and in my opinion still needs to be 'out there' helping others.

    In fact I have embraced the LCHF for eight years now, and had I known about it before then would have embraced this lifestyle earlier.

    I wrote this back in March 2014

    What a Difference Diabetes Can Make.

    I would ask you to please go and read it

    2 years, 1000's of messages and hopefully a few people's ideas about diet & diabetes have changed. I used to think the future was garlic bread, how wrong I was.....
    Onwards & upwards and here's to many more years :-)

    Can we leave my junk out of this thread rofl Seriously folks, thanks for all the contributions. We have few regular posters, but we get lots of reads. When you run a blog, website or forum, it's impossible to know, how many people you can influence in a positive way. Eight years ago, lowcarbers were seen to be crazy eaters and off the wall. These days, many Medical Professionals are singing from the same hymn sheet.

    Once again, thank you to the posters and readers. A very special thank you to Jan, my rock. A slim non diabetic, who never stops fighting for the cause. Also, Graham must be mentioned. I have lost count of times I have said, sod this lark, I'm off, but he always chills me out, and talks me into sticking with the low carb cause.  

    Here's to the next two years.  thumb-up
