    Hi mate-I got an email from them about 2 months ago saying they were calling the forum a day and were just sticking to just a Facebook page apparently! Shame how the place turned out out after Defren,Shane and a few other snowflakes wrecked it! rip

    I had links to a whole bunch of diabetes forums which have evaporated over the years. In most cases no loss.

    For what my opinion is worth that forum should and could have been one of the best. Started by some very knowledgeable people many staunch low carb supporters. The fact is they blew it from almost day one. The diet they pushed to newbies was anything but low carb. As I said at the time regarding their advice to newbies re diet.

    "“On the starchy foods that are left in your regime, try brown basmati rice, and brown or tri-colour pasta, instead of white. A couple of baby new potatoes boiled are far better than old potatoes, be they boiled, mashed or in their jackets. The bread that is most recommended is Burgen Soya and linseed bread, but some of us manage ok with wholegrain brown as well.”

    How many of the forum owners, and well controlled members are eating brown rice, brown pasta, new potatoes, and any kind of bread other than flax/linseed? answer one, Grazer! All the very well controlled i.e low fives and fours would not touch this sort of food with a ten foot pole. When I pointed this out, a feeling of Déjà Vu came over me. I was back at the forum of flog, diabetes.co.uk, fighting for my life" affraid

    Also, some will remember how they ripped me to bits when I talked of big pharma corruption and how most type two drugs were close to useless.  Even a pharma rep would have been in awe of their defence for junk drugs. It appeared to me, being "owners" and having a fancy title, was more important to some of the big white chiefs, than actually helping anyone.

    Yeah ISTR it started with good people and good intentions but that didn't last long.

    How you eat that stuff while "eating to your meter" is rather ridiculous. MY meter told me quite different, but them I concentrated on deleting the postprandial spikes at their highest point which was mainly around the 1 hour mark, didn't they push two hour testing?
