hi husband recently diagnosed with type 2 and needs to lose a lot of weight so I'm here trying to find ways to help. All indicators point to a low carb high fat diet. However I've recently acquired a book called quick cooking diabetes by Louise Blair and Norma mcgough which has been produced in association with diabetes uk. However the advice in this book seems to contradict what I've been reading in that in the nutrition and diabetes section it states it says to have low fat spread and things like crime fraiche instead of double cream yet in the low carb stuff I've been reading it says you should have butter and full fat cream etc. It also says that meals should be based around bread, cereals and potatoes as starchy foods form the largest portion of your diet. Where as this all seems to be a big no no on low carb. So I don't know what advice I should be following! I feel there's so much conflicting advice.
