Thank you to each and every one of you two million views ... and still rising!

Little did we know that when we first started our humble blog ... that the 30th October 2016 would see us reaching over two million views ... and still rising!

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.

Of course, over the years we have welcomed many new readers from all around the world, and to those who are slightly newer readers and followers ... we also say welcome and thank you.

Thank you to everyone - you are appreciated

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Our Interests: "Challenging the outdated dogma that believes diabetics should base their diet on blood glucose raising carbohydrates, and demolishing the myths that says saturated fat causes chronic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

merci, danke, tak, terima kasih, xie xie, grazie, dziekuje, obrigado, spasibo, gracias, tack, tesekkür ederim, do jeh, Дякую, thank you.

Good Luck and Good Health To All

Just one last thing - 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

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

Congratulations! Ny husband is a diabetic and fully LCHF. He's a moderator over at and is 100% convinced that this diet keeps his diabetes controlled. I've held out for a long time, but am beginning to try the diet full time myself. Thank you for the recipes!

Congratulations! while i am not a diabetic, I try to support the people who use low-carbing as a main way to improve health. I think the diabetics who follow a LC diet bring benefits to their whole household. Look at Jan - most probably her sharing Eddie's diet saves her from many age-related diseases. Naturally thin people very often eat wrong food with a false sense of security because their weight stays stable. When i watched the BBC movie about diabetics, I noticed that family members of featured in the movie diabetics continued eating candies, children were served pasta despite having a father who straggled with obesity and diabetes. For me it looked cruel, wrong and shortsighted. Probably, the rise in the number of diabetics would force more people to extract their heads from a sand and assess the wrong diet advice of last decades. You are all already telling others what can be done about it.

Hardly boasting when we state and I quote "our humble blog", our own eight years + of going against official T2 dietary guidelines seems to have bypassed you. It's hardly scaremongering when the stats show the devastating effects of uncontrolled diabetes which are not helped by guidelines that promote a high carb low fat diet

@Anonymous, do you truly think that the concern about the rise of metabolic disorders in a western society is an unreasonable scaremongering?
