Looking for recipes and a search threw up the BBC Food pages, on which there's a section on diabetic recipes. https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/collections/diabetes_recipes In one, there was a link to a BBC article about diabetes, which the tag-line used for the link (which I now can't find!) suggested Type 2 could be avoided completely with the right lifestyle (and therefore implying it was entirely your own fault if you developed the disease). While there is an element of truth in this, the article goes on to say around 80% of Type 2 cases are preventable, meaning that 20% aren't, thereby undermining its own headline claim. It talks about wholegrains and says "It has been questined whether people with, or at risk of, T2D should eat carbohydrates at all..." which is a nonsense statement. The next things it says is that "it's all too easy to make refined carbohydrates, such as white bread, pasta and most cereals , the foundation of every meal but this should be avoided". It does go on to say wholegrain varieties are better but stick with it. I'll get to the punchline shortly. Finally (after having talked about the benefits of losing or being a healthy weight) it says "New research has shown that blood-sugar levels can be returned to normal by following a very low-calorie diet". Surely that should be low carb diet? Now let's look at some of their "Diabetes" recipes: Lemony pasta bake (63g of carbs & doesn't mention using wholewheat pasta), Lighter lamb hotpot (topped with potatoes of course) (47g of carbs), Gammon & chips (48g of carbs), Lighter fish & chips (47g of carbs). Many of the recipes - ones containing rice, potatoes, dumplings or pies - don't even give the nutritional value, which is crucial for understanding what you're eating. I've seen a few threads about the BBC and its skewed reporting of food issues but it seems that some of these "diabetes" recipes are anything but. Am I being a bit picky?
