    A decade of being nonconformist

    Post by graham64 on Wed Apr 04 2018, 22:07

    On April the 4th 2008 I was diagnosed with diabetes and here I am after ten years LowCarb with no signs of the dire consequences forecast by a stupid Welsh dietitian, I'm in no doubt if I had listened to her and heeded her advice I would have seen diabetes progression with the probability of needing insulin by now. This was all down to the original lowcarb forum at DCUK and the knowledgeable people I met there gave me far more useful advice and help than any dietitians and their so called evidence based guidelines  Rolling Eyes  

    Best way forward is to ignore official guidelines avoid dietitians unless you can find one of the ever growing number of lowcarb ones who understand the nutritional needs of diabetics.

    Yes I am certain that if I had continued to follow the advice I was given by now I would be much fatter, on several more profitable drugs and with fewer than the average number of limbs.

    Thanks for sharing this Graham ...

    So many diabetics now know more about the health benefits LCHF can and does bring  Smile

    But, we still need to continue to spread the word about LCHF ...

    All the best Jan
