So, to all those who started following the blog in those early days - that stayed with us - that keep on supporting us. We say thank you to each and every one of you.
Our original profile states:
"We are a small band of diabetics all low carbers. Posting links to diabetes related articles and low carb food advice. In our spare time we like to lampoon the spreaders of fear and misinformation. Welcome to the crazy world of diabetes."
Our Interests: "Challenging the outdated dogma that believes diabetics should base their diet on blood glucose raising carbohydrates, and demolishing the myths that says saturated fat causes chronic disease."
Our Favourite books include "Dr.Richard Bernstein The Diabetes Solution, Gary Taubes The Diet Delusion, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick The Cholestrol Con. "
In more recent times the blog has taken on a more magazine type feel with a widening of articles, news, views, recipes, some personal stories, and our ever popular Saturday Night Is Music Night Spot.
The team's main concern is still with diabetes and the better control of it by following a LCHF lifestyle, but more and more people, who are not diabetic, have been discovering this lifestyle and seeing for themselves the improvement in health and well-being it can give.
None of the low carb team are medical professionals. The articles you read are personal views but often link to both medical and scientific studies.
Jan is the only one of the team who is not a diabetic, but being married to Eddie a Type 2 diabetic, and seeing how this LCHF lifestyle can and does help so many, it just made sense to her to live the lifestyle and join the small team.
The low carb team are always busy, both on the blog and behind the scenes, working hard to promote the LCHF lifestyle. We enjoy finding and posting a wide selection of articles for the blog, and will continue to do so. We present articles, news items, thoughts, recipe ideas, some music and even a cartoon every now and then for all to read. It is a mix which we hope includes something for everyone to read and enjoy!
We would like to to say a big thank you to ALL our readers, and those who do take time to stop and leave a thought or comment, you are appreciated.
Included here are just a few thank you's from the many different countries who use this blog, with some apologies, because we know there are many languages that do not appear here.
THANK YOU to all.

From Jan, Eddie and Graham - 'the low carb team'
