There is a huge trend toward LCHF in Sweden, and it’s spreading to our neighboring countries as well. Yesterday on Finnish TV they had a program about low carb high fat diets for type 2 diabetics. How diabetics are improving their health by eating totally different from the official recommendations.
As in every other country diabetics in Finland are officially given insane diet advice. They are told to eat bread, pasta, potatoes and rice: starch that turns into glucose in the gut, and raises the blood sugar.
The reporter went to Sweden and interviewed me and professor Fredrik Nyström, both very positive to LCHF diets for diabetics. In Finland they had a hard time finding anyone to defend the official high carb diabetes diet. The Diabetes Association actually failed to find anyone in time for the show.
Both the reporter and the cameraman totally understood the subject (they were more or less eating LCHF themselves). And it shows! LCHF is getting popular in Finland as well, and rumor says that two bread factories are about to close…
PS: The above program is in Swedish (with Finnish subtitles). A large minority of Finns speak Swedish. Sorry for once again sharing Swedish video, just wanted to let you know what’s happening!
