How do you feel about deliberately putting your diabetes out of control?
Here are the food choices available for sale at Australia’s leading meeting for discussing Diabetes. I have capitalised the sugar and carbohydrate load.
If anyone goes along, let me know if they have at least put the carb and sugar load on the packaging. I suspect not.

I think they can do better than this.
There is a food revolution taking place in Diabetes management. LCHF – Low Carb and Healthy Fat eating and living is giving back control to people and families with Diabetes.
This has been debated at national meetings and if there was true leadership from Diabetes Australia, Victoria and Tasmania, then Low Carb food options should be made available to those wanting to practice LCHF. The people are leading the way on this one.
Need help with your diabetes? The team at www.DiabetesHealthCentre.com.au can give you that education and LCHF to get back control. It’s a real option.
