    Low Carbohydrate, High Fat for Type 2 Diabetes: An Evidence-Based Assessment 

    Feng-Yuan Liu

    For those of you who know me personally or professionally, you will know that I am extremely passionate about metabolic nutrition and helping my clients understand the science behind my recommendations. Always.

    With all the information, misinformation and misrepresentation of information spreading faster than wildfire, people’s minds are also exploding at the same velocity.

    One topic that seems to take the spotlight is the “Low Carbohydrate, High Fat” way of eating.

    I have written briefly about this previously to correct some misinformation around it – you can read it here.

    However, recently I read a piece written by the Dietitians’ Association of Australia (DAA) published under their “Hot Topics”. It was their response to the Low Carb High Fat way of eating and Type 2 Diabetes. You can access their full article here.

    In keeping with evidence-based practice I was very confused with how the DAA came to some of their conclusions. This sort of misinformation, or rather “misrepresentation” of information is something I personally find discouraging, as it only fuels the public confusion, and frankly, makes it very difficult for us dietitians to be taken seriously.

    In this blog, I wish to take you through their piece section by section, so we can really break it down, and get to the bottom of this “Hot Topic”.

    Feng-Yuan Liu could go the same way as Jennifer Elliott and Gary Fettke if the DAA go down the same route and get her banned for inappropriately reversing diabetes, somehow though I don't think she will be bothered 

    This could be interesting re the DAA

    Meanwhile, another Black Ops outfit

    http://www.nii.org.uk

    no knights involved though (obscure Monty Python joke)

    It's going in both directions at once. More and more dieticians breaking ranks, and more and more narcissistic twerps like Friedhoff, Katz, Nunes, Hall, Guyenet . . . Science may advance one funeral at a time but this generation will outlive most of us Sad
