Low Carb Great for Treating Type 2 Diabetes


Both patients and doctors find that a low-carb diet can be very helpful for type 2 diabetics. It doesn’t cause a big spike in glucose after meals and it helps achieve weight loss.

Here’s another new article about it, where a doctor even says ‘If [low carb] were a drug, companies would be running large trials to get it licensed.’

Can it be dangerous for a physician to talk about nutrition with his patients? So dangerous that the authorities tell him to never, ever talk about nutrition again?

Dr. Gary Fettke is a low-carb messenger who, in a similar way to Professor Noakes in South Africa, authorities have tried to silence. All for giving his patients empowering nutritional advice, like avoiding carbs for people with obesity and type 2 diabetes.

Fortunately, Dr. Fettke absolutely refuses to be silenced. In our interview, he explains what has happened to him. And why it is a matter of principle to stand up against dietary dogma.

Professor Schofield: End Chocolate-Selling As a Fundraiser

Professor Grant Schofield, health adviser to the New Zealand government and proponent of a low-carb, high-fat diet, wants to see an end to the selling of chocolate as a fundraiser in schools:

Fundraising through confectionery just isn’t a good look. Families like mine end up with 60-plus chocolate bars in the house.

We don’t want to have to ask others to buy them and don’t want to return them so we end up with that many bars. They will get eaten and we don’t need that much sugar in our house. Surely we can do something more imaginative.

Sounds like an excellent idea.
