This is applicable to diabetes, the dietary guidelines lead to the unnecessary use of medications that come with a long list of side effects,

I absolutely agree with the danger imposed by unnecessary medications. Attempts to compensate with meds poor diet choices lead to more medications as well.

So what do you good people have to say about Jimmy Moore now? As "Mr. Low Carb Poster Boy" I'd say he makes your team look like a bunch of wankers. With allies like Jimbo, who needs enemies?

"a bunch of wankers"

Good grief Christopher, please have some sympathy, for we are all of a very delicate disposition at the low carb diabetic.

As for Jimmy we like him, but it cannot be denied he has gained a lot of weight.

As for Carbsane, oh dear. Unlike Jimmy she hides away skulking in the darkness, her life is one long anguished scream against low carbers. I used to read her blog, but almost every post is the same, only the names of her targets change.

She is a typical failed low carber. She states she lost a hell of a lot of weight low carbing, but could not stop cheating with junk food. Back went the weight and her reason to live was born.

It's my opinion she is mentally ill, her blog is full of information about what does not work, but zero information on what does work. Clearly only low carb ever worked for her, but it's a life long change for many, not a quick fix. Back on the junk, back goes the weight.

When Carbsane publishes some full length recent photographs of herself, and proves she can get to a healthy weight, together with how she achieved it, I might have some respect for her. But until that happens, she will just be another bloated blogger to me, skulking in the shadows, jealous of others success.

Dr Malhotra is rapidly becoming my new health hero :)

As for Jimmy Moore/Carbsane etc, they have put on weight... now, Carbsane has done it by ditching low carb, but I presume Jimmy is still low carb, particularly as he has built something of a career out of it.

I'm still losing weight and feeling good on low carb, and as a diabetic, its about more than just the weight for me, but I am not a zealot. If I find in future that low carb is not 'the way' for me then I will, using my own research and intelligence, try something else.

That's a bit rich coming from a follower of the biggest Hippocrite on the web, do you suffer from delusions of grandeur just like Hevylyn? or are you just her dominatrix slave.

If she had just one ounce of integrity she would post a recent picture of herself then we would see a level playing field but we know that's not going to happen don't we?

Yes the truth is out there only not at the fat ones blog.

Following a high calorie LCHF diet for over seven years, proving in my n=1 journey a calorie is not a calorie CICO is a misnomer.

Peace love and streaky bacon
