Welcome From The Low Carb Team

We have recently welcomed many new readers from all around the world and some have asked questions about the blog, so we thought it would be nice to give some background information ...

The Low Carb Diabetic Blog's very first post was called, Sometimes it just makes sense ... and was back in December 2010 ... fast forward to 2017, and we're still going strong. Over the years we have met (both in the flesh and on the web) some great people and shared many different articles, recipes, studies etc... and we will continue to do this.

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"Challenging the outdated dogma that believes diabetics should base their diet on blood glucose raising carbohydrates, and demolishing the myths that says saturated fat causes chronic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 recent years the blog has taken on a more magazine type feel with a widening of articles, news, views, recipes, some personal stories, and even a Saturday Night Is Music Night Spot ... well why not! 

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 the LCHF lifestyle can and does help so many, it just made sense to her to embrace this lifestyle.

If you would like to find out more about the LCHF lifestyle, then please read Introduction to low-carb for beginners, it's free of charge and you can find it here

This picture shows some of the foods we enjoy eating.
We are low carb, not no carb, and our meals are based on whole real food,
quality protein, healthy fats and low-carb vegetables and lower carb fruits.

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

Jan, I really enjoy your blog and have learned a lot from reading the articles. As a vegetarian, many people think all I eat is pasta. They often serve it when they know I'm coming to dinner. I'm not a big fan of pasta. Yes, I will eat it if there is nothing else, but I never eat it at home. I was delighted to learn that your blog fits basically well into my eating lifestyle, and I enjoy visiting here. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.
