    Catherine Collins British Dietetic Association Dietitian on Twitter.

    Post by Eddie on Mon Oct 10 2016, 17:16


    The above tweet from a dietitian, whose organisation the BDA has promoted an abysmal diet to diabetics for years. An organisation that accepts sponsorship from junk food makers. Now, Catherine is no newbie in the BDA or fresh out of University, she is a very experienced and self-styled senior dietitian with many years in the job.

    I find myself asking, has she just realised, the correct diet for a type two diabetic, is the very cornerstone for safe diabetes control. If this is new to her, she has clearly not been fit for purpose for a very long time. The alternative is, she has known for a long time. That being the case, why has she promoted a high carb, high starch, high sugar diet to the most allergic to these foods? Namely diabetics.

    Only asking a straight question. Hey, I almost forgot, Catherine does not like a straight question as can be seen at link. Check out the link, see how fast she runs for the hills and passes the buck onto others.

    _________________
    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 !

    Would the tailored advice from Collins be based on the eat well guide as the BDA promote it in their T2 fact sheet 


    https://www.bda.uk.com/foodfacts/diabetestype2.pdf


    The new guide shows the proportions of food groups and how much of each we should be eating daily. According to PHE these breakdown roughly into: starchy 37%; fruit/veg 39%; oils 1%; beans, pulses, meat 12%; dairy 8%; occasional foods 3%.

    Best avoid BDA dietitians if you don't want a fast track route to multiple medications and T2 progression

    Obviously it ISN'T a healthy diet otherwise where did all the diabetics and obese people come from?

    Mindboggling.
