    I was eating low carb for most of the time I had a family to feed - they had the same basic foods I ate, I simply substituted for the higher carb foods in their diet, though they were never as high carb as some 'normal' families.
    Both my offspring are tall and slender, so it didn't do them any harm.

    Unfortunately many doctors produce diet sheets which advise eating a high carb breakfast of cereal and skimmed milk - then something like baked potato or wholemeal bread sandwiches for lunch and a dinner of starchy veges - all low fat, of course, so as to maintain blood glucose in the high teens.

    Hi @RachelThorpe .

    Could you define. 'proper diet' please.

    As the one most of us get given from doctors at first diagnosis, doesn't seem for many to be Effective.

    In fact I'd say it's contrary to helping us with regard to carbs and the effects they have on type 2... And presumably for those with pre diabetic Levels.

    Hi all, I'm new to this but have also been confused by advice from doc to eat wholemeal cereal and bread etc. I was also told that eating sugar isn't the problem. After I was diagnosed with T2 I lost a stone of the 4 I have to lose by cutting right back on carbs and increasing fat/protein. This took a month. Instead of getting any recognition for my efforts both the doc and nurse told me that was no good because I wouldn't be able to sustain it.

    There are some delicious low carb bakes out there! Why not try some of those? There's a;so a Baker and coffee shop in London called Yummzy, think in the East End, thay produce some lovely keto bakes, cakes sausage rolls etc. Might be worth a try if youre in London.

    Typically poor advice from both doctor and nurse. So far out of date they may as well be in the last century!

    Try mail order from deliciously guilt free. Tried their stuff at Real Food Rocks. Recommend the double chocolate brownie. Lovely people too.
