    The link above goes to a BBC article, which is summed up by its title, "Low fat diet 'burns more fat', study finds". The study is by the US National Institute of Health and compares low fat and low carb, unfortunately no link is provided to the original work.

    Even if the results are correct (and we all know how much "science" is fiddled), low carb is still the way to go for diabetics, but I suspect that this could be part of a fight back against the growing interest in low carb. I hope someone like Zoe Harcombe gives the paper her serious attention. Typical of the BBC to give full page publicity to this one, but never mention the recent Cape Town conference.

    Well low fat did not work for me - so I don't care who says it's a good idea, I'm still not doing it again. Smile

    Almost every time I have seen a study or trial quoting a low carb diet, it has not come close to being a low carb diet. My typical days food at 30% carbs would be the thick end of 1000 calories from carbs i.e. 250 grams of carb per day. Lose weight or control BG not a chance. 50 grams to me is low carb not even keto for me and most others. 250 grams of carb is a million miles away from low carb and most people know it, including the boffins that chuck out the dross on a regular basis.

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 !
