    Hi. I haven’t been diagnosed with diabetes but my good friend has. I do have a fatty liver though and thought that this would be a perfect time to support my friend while getting myself sorted out. I have been on every diet under the sun all without great success. After having low fat drummed into me for over 4 years, how do you get your head around being able to eat fat.
    Can anyone also direct me to shopping list? Thank you in advance x

    Low fat was never tested, only proposed, and the numbers really do seem to show that it was the start of a lot of health problems, not the solving of them.
