    Great to see Fergus back at the forum of flog. I expect the antis will be logging into congratulate him. The flog has gone full circle and it only took around nine years. rofl On a somewhat negative note, I see almost everyone and their dog is cashing in on the low carb information front. How people can charge money for what has been well known for at least a 100 years is beyond me.


    Diabetic Cookery Recipes And Menus by Rebecca W Oppenheimer printed 1917. Check this link out the complete book is available for free, packed with great information for all, not just for diabetics.

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 !

    I saw the page above and thought Philadelphia Cream Cheese ... has it been around that long!!!

    Yes, it has "The first cream cheese made in New York by an American dairyman William Lawrence, the year was 1872"

    All the best Jan

    Don't think Ally would get anywhere with Fergus or Libby their far to clued up for her  Laughing The last time she was on the forum was just to delete some of her more inane posts as they were the ones we highlighted on the blog
