I don't know about you, but I am sticking with whole fresh real food. The sort of foods that you do not need to be a rocket scientist to understand the label on the tin. The plate of food below needs no explanation and great for all, whether diabetic or not. Eddie

These kind of products scared me off from low carb eating, until I figured out that these products were not the way to go. you can eat real food, even "real good food" eating the low carb way. Seeing through the deceit and illusion of what's in products can be as simple as reading the list of ingredients, as you show in your post. I used to eat protein bars, granola bars, etc., seeing them as healthy natural foods. It only took being willing to stop the delusion to realize I was eating loads of refined carbohydrates and feeding my sugar cravings, every day. I'm working on refining what I eat, and am coming to realize I don't need to eat huge amounts of meats, for example, a dozen pieces of bacon, just reasonable servings.

Great comment anon.

So much of what we hear re. a low carb diet is complete and utter rubbish. My protein intake has not changed in all my adult life. When dropping the carbs I increased the healthy fats. Double cream. nuts, seeds and avocado etc.

This is so simple, but no money in simple. Give it a fancy name like paleo etc. and reinvent a perfectly good wheel that has been around for thousands of years.

Never forget bullshit baffles brains, but not ours.

is that the stuff designed for use by epileptic children who aren't helped by drug therapy? if so, Wooo lambasted it as badly formulated but better than the previous alternative (death).... she tells us that it has been found recently that a mere Atkins-style diet helps those children also. :-)
