    Hypocrites they should consider why they receive such negative comments, I recall after they made personal comments about Aseem Malhotra they didn't like it when he responded in kind, people in glass houses  Question

    The dinosaur is dead but still thrashing around.

    Cue Alison Tedstone on TV. Not as fat as some of her colleagues but she does NOT look healthy. Carb face.

    Oh yeah

    Carb face  Cool Love it not sure our grain scoffing low fat dietitians will approve  Shocked

    Meanwhile: Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN)

    Joint SACN - NHS England - Diabetes UK working group to review the evidence on lower carbohydrate diets (alongside higher fat and/or higher protein) compared to current government advice for adults with type 2 diabetes.

    How can we pretend we never condemned low carb diets while continuing to recommend high carb diets? It's a step I suppose.

    I put the SACN site behind my ear for later.

    And now the BDA it appears is spouting vegan propaganda, no surprises there then given their tie up with the vegan society 

     Meat and dairy products are leading contributors to Green House Gas (GHG) emissions (6) and other environmental impacts and emphasis should be on reduction of meat (red and processed meat in particular) and processed meat products (PMP)
    in line with the Eatwell Guide (EWG) (7) and replaced with appropriate plant based proteins such as beans and pulses, and plant based dairy alternatives. The EWG support increased fruit and vegetable intakes, more wholegrain carbohydrates and
    reduced saturated fat, sugar and salt intakes.

    Utter bollocks of course (I haven't yet read it, that was just an inspired guess). What about all the diesel and agrochemicals needed to grow grain and all the air miles and truck miles needed to import and transport all those foreign grown ten-a-day vegetables and fruit? And don't even THINK of all the vegan farts. Then there are all those industrially produced "plant milks", how much energy is used in the factories squeezing the tits on all those soybeans and almonds?

    Meanwhile total surreality is reached

    Hunt getting the award is a sick joke he's presiding over a health service that is in meltdown due to lack of funds and a shortage of staff

    Hemoglobin A1c Targets for Glycemic Control With Pharmacologic Therapy for Nonpregnant Adults With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: A Guidance Statement Update From the American College of Physicians

    http://annals.org/aim/fullarticle/2674121/hemoglobin-1c-targets-glycemic-control-pharmacologic-therapy-nonpregnant-adults-type

    "Guidance Statement 2:
    Clinicians should aim to achieve an HbA1c level between 7% and 8% in most patients with type 2 diabetes.

    Guidance Statement 3:
    Clinicians should consider deintensifying pharmacologic therapy in patients with type 2 diabetes who achieve HbA1c levels less than 6.5%."

    Expect this to be rolled out to all doctors ASAP, just like what happened after ACCORD.

    Genocide is painless.

    Are they all mentally ill or does it just look like it from outside?

    "Current evidence is clear no one diet is clearly superior."

    Well not until you look at trigs, HDL, insulin, glucose and all those other irrelevances. etc. etc.

    I suspect a very slow pedalling away from high carb low fat for all, but so carefully they hope no-one will notice.

    Mentally ill  Shocked  could be a possibility given their low fat diet and we know the effect  of that on the brain don't we  Question

    Meanwhile the stupidity continues https://twitter.com/SamueleMarcora/status/974727640761454593

    Lets put the blame on the fat content and ignore the high carbs

    "I'm not fat, I'm big boned. Pass the pasta!"

    They really do look to be painting themselves into a corner. The irony is that the Angry Chef railed against celebrities writing diet books and now he IS a celebrity and HAS written a diet book "but that's different"

    You will be hard pushed to find any reference to low carb on the DUK website, they do however give their blessings to:

    Special Diets
    Dairy free
    Freezer safe
    Gluten free
    Low fat
    Low sugar
    Nut free
    Vegan
    Vegetarian



    A carb fest at every meal is still the most promoted at DUK for T2s

    Hmmm, a doctor who reverses diabetes live on prime time TV or a dietician who spent years warning diabetics of the extreme dangers of low carb diets, and presides over one of the fattest parts of the UK. I know where I'd put my money.

    Oh that's a very old line, the reciprocal of the one that states that if your health gets worse on a low fat diet you are failing to comply with it.

    The fightback against health continues
