Fergus Craig at Lateral Health 2015

Fergus was the one who introduced me, Eddie and many others to LC over seven years ago at the DCUK forum, for this we will always be grateful.


"Fergus has had Type 1 diabetes for 34 years.In 2000, with worsening health and a growing weight issue and after a near fatal car crash, it was time to do something about it.  It took a bit of research, quite a lot of reading and eventually an Open University course in Human Nutrition, but then it did start to dawn on me that perhaps insulin was the common denominator.  It was time for action.

12 months later, Fergus' BMI had falled from 29 to 22, his HbA1c from 8.3% to 4.6% and his insulin dosage had fallen to 25% of what it had been at the start.  Most of what he once thought he knew about healthy eating had turned out to be quite wrong.  15 years later his weight remains stable, blood sugars are non-diabetic and he doesn't have any of the long term complications that often go hand in hand with diabetes.  What still surprises Fergus is the level of opposition to the dietary implications of what he has found."

Found this very interesting.

The strong opposition is surprising. So many people look for miracle drugs which may allow them to eat their cornflakes.
