    Morning all,

    My book has arrived - very quicjk delivery. I'm impressed. I love the way it's easy to read, and the traffic light system makes it easy to use for reference. I've already had one non diabetic friend ask to borrow it.... I'll order her one of her own..... I'm not giving mine up! :)

    I've just had a reply from Balance forwarding my suggestion of interviewing Trudi to the editors AND my email to their research team.

    Wonder if any of them read the Daily Mail? It's true!!! I read it in the Mail!!!

    From the Hounslow group organizer's email:

    Lynn’s talk was followed by Ian Day who introduced a publication called “Eat Fat” by Dr Trudy Deakin. The summary her views and how she formulated them can read on Line. Please follow the link below: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/a...carbs-fuelling-obesity-diabetes-epidemic.html

    You can purchase her book on line and it costs £9.99. There was an debate on a low carbohydrate diet and I would say that this was the highlight of the evening.

    X-PERT tell me they have sold about 20 in the Hounslow area - 6 might be mine, but I have a different post code.

    Whilst I appreciate not everyone wants to go LCHF, I feel that a "storehouse" of these recipes should be made available to us (e.g. via the X-pert site) so that the alternative is available. On my X-pert course, some of the participants were surprised at the LC foods produced!

    Just a quick update to this thread.

    At the time Trudi published her book, I asked if there were plans to publish an electronic copy of the book, as I didn't find the size of the book to be too user friendly. At the time, there were not.

    I emailed again yesterday, repeating the question, and I am pleased to report this is now under way. I have no idea what formats it will be available in, but for sure, it'll be more handbag friendly than the current paper copy book.

    I've been asked to request another update in about 3 months, so I will. However, if anyone else would like this electronically, it might be an idea to email the office and ask for it? Supply and demand and all that.

    @Paul59 - when I saw your "Like" come through on this thread, it served as a reminder to email X-pert Health about the electronic version, so thanks for the nudge, even if unintended. :)

    I'll update the thread again, when I receive a response.

    Apologies - I realise I haven't updated this thread since my last. I did contact X-pert, who report that the transformation of the book from hard copy to e-book is more of a challenge than at first anticipated, so it's not ready to rock and roll yet, with no real target date, which is a shame.
