Hi all.

We relaunched Low-Carb Skipton's open meetings this month. Welcoming old members and new.

Next meeting will be on 6th December at 7 pm in the Rendezvous Hotel. We're hoping to have a guest speaker and a trading stall - to be confirmed.

We've been meeting again regularly now for a while, and numbers are slowly picking up after lockdowns.

We're open to anyone wanting to learn about low-carb, whether for weight loss and/or diabetes reasons. Meetings are usually first Monday of the month at 7pm in the Rendezvous Hotel, in Skipton. This can change usually because of bank holidays, so it's worth checking on the Low-carb Skipton facebook page.

Admission is £15 and you can book through the Low-carb Skipton website which is here:


There are a couple of other add-ons - a low-carb "Dinner with Ivor" at the Elsworth Mill, Skipton on Friday, and a lunch following the Saturday talk. Prices and current availability on the website.

Really good meeting tonight at Low Carb Skipton with a LOT of new faces. Also getting coverage in (gasp) the Craven Herald.


Edited to say that Ivor C isn't a dietitian and doesn't claim to be, and that's not how I think you should spell "dietitian".

Sounds pretty cool!
Is it still usually on the first monday of the month? I might happen to be in the area on the first monday in october. And there's even a campsite right on the outside of Skipton that only costs £10 a night for a small tent.

I'm sure we can accommodate a bona fide Dutch exchange visitor, although we may ask you to do a presentation of some kind. We're nasty like that.

You mean I'll be invited to bore them all to death with low carb T1 management, screenshots of my graphs, and pictures of cold water swimming? Can I include pictures of my dogs and guinea pigs as well? I'm sure I can find a way to make them relevant to low carb and diabetes to appear on topic if I try.

Sounds great! :hilarious:

We don't have many T1s in the group and a talk about that in itself might be quite interesting. I'll talk to the Committee....

Which means my experiences aren't very relevant to the group I think...

Except for the guinea pigs of course, they are a godsend for every low carber wanting the occasional bite of fruit but doesn't want to throw away the fruit minus one bite.
And they allow me to have a much larger variety of veggies in the larder at any given time, without having to throw out much because they've gone off in a one person household.
