    The angry chef though he has no formal qualifications in nutrition has become a diet guru for the BDA, smacks of desperation or maybe they are getting a free supply of Mr Kipling cakes

    I bought some extra toilet rolls just to be on the safe side.

    Yes amazing that after what they did to Gary Fettke the Australian dietetics organisation is now trying to divest itself from its commercial sponsors. Yet here we are going in the opposite direction.

    The BDA wrote:The importance of good blood glucose control
    People with Type 2 diabetes need to control their blood glucose. It is also important to look after your heart health. Making changes to your lifestyle, diet and activity level can be key to reducing the risk of diabetes causing you problems now and in the future.


    So far so good but then they are still using the carb heavy and totally unsuitable for diabetics eatwell guide as a example of healthy eating  Evil or Very Mad

    I haven't listened to this yet but I have it recorded. First I need to eat some cheese, the Bolognese is finally starting to wear off six hours after I ate it.

    The fightback continues

    They completely ignored the audience member who had gone low carb, had needed insulin but now took no meds and completely reversed her diabetes since the beginning of year
    She praised her doctor for introducing her to low carb.

    I agree Derek but at least she had her say, the programme was only on for 28 minutes I think the BBC tried to cram to much into a short period of time not allowing for a proper debate 

    Meanwhile Catherine Collins reckons  there was only a single recognised RD (Mellor) on the panel ignoring the fact Trudi Deakin is just as qualified as Collins and Mellor probably more so as far as low carb is concerned

    Good quote here

    https://twitter.com/SheilaDillon/status/1064084454476574720

    Obviously Collins would have been unable to achieve this, nor would she want to.

    I found it disappointing, too short and too eager to "achieve balance". But then it's the BBC. If it had been the Guardian they would have had a vegan replacing Trudi Deakin.

    Conventional Wisdom is just making itself irrelevant.

    Yes your right Derek at the same time 12.32 pm to, no description or of who's on the panel as yet but I don't think I'll bother to listen the programmes far to short to come up with any meaningful debate

    Sheila Dillon explores food and what it means to us.

    I'll probably record it and listen while I'm doing something else. Jeez, so many videos and podcasts by sensible people nowadays. I have a huge list.
