The Low Carb Diabetic Blog !

Why The Low Carb Diabetic Blog ?

Well the blog has been going for some years now, and we have recently welcomed many new readers from all around the world.

From both emails and comments received some have asked about the blog when and why was it first introduced etc:

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Our Interests: "Challenging the outdated dogma that believes diabetics should base their diet on blood glucose raising carbohydrates, and demolishing the myths that says saturated fat causes chronic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.

I am 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 live the lifestyle myself and join the small team.

We look forward to posting up many more articles, and many thanks for taking time to read.

I am not diabetic but have learned much here to help with just healthy eating. I enjoy your blog very much. Thank you.

An interesting link to the beginner's guide. It must be hard to change one's eating lifestyle which would include giving up chocolate. During my recent tea tour, one of the ladies had to have gluten free meals and I can tell you they weren't always appetizing. She said she misses good bread the most as what she was given was always dry and crumbly.
I'm thankful I have no dietary restrictions at this time and give credit to those who do and learn a new way of eating.

Devia de haver mais grupos a associarem-se para debater e divulgar a saúde e como combater os diabetes.
Um abraço e bom fim-de-semana.

Was there more groups to join in to discuss and disseminate health and how to combat diabetes.
A hug and good end-of-week.
