Looking at the cover it seems a general "cure all" inc acne and lord knows what!  I was amused really.  It mentions blood glucose but not diabetes specifically (unless I am going blind!)

Still, little steps in the right direction folks!  We must be grateful that the message is percolating through.

Patti, there's a bit more about it here.

The front cover is just one of those stupid and pointless word cluster diagrams.

Well hopefully it will get the deserved attention.

So this woman in cahoots with the nhs, runs a course,produces glossy pamplets and a board game at whatever cost to the nhs and tax payer, bases everything on diabetics must base meals on starchy carbs info.
Then a couple of years later releases a new book on low carb high fat diet.

Cant wait to take a copy to my di£tician that presented the xpert course as gospel when I went years ago. Should be fun.

From feedback from elsewhere, she has, of late, been a lot more LCHF friendly. If I win the book in the comp, I'll nip down to Bury & let you see it, Moby

Maybe not so much for those of us who are fully LCHF aware, but for the less experienced then I would say "Go for it!"

I eagerly await the arrival of version 11 of the Xpert  coursebook (Current one is v10) which should show the "Newcastle Diet" and the fully LCHF friendly text.

For anyone wanting to know more, Trudi is going to be interviewed on Jimmy Moore's show on Monday 21st September:

http://www.thelivinlowcarbshow.com/shownotes/

(As an aside, his interview with Dr Andrew Hill, cognitive neuroscientist, is definitely worth a listen. Towards the end of the interview he discusses the effects of statins on the ability to rebuild bone, of special concern to post-menopausal women - yet another reason to give them a wide berth!)

After being an absentee from the forums for quite a while, I was interested to read this thread. I moved to a new area recently and have had my first head-against-the-wall conversation with a new DN, who has insisted I need to go on a course. I said I'd already done the XPert a couple of years ago and she replied 'We do our own now. We stopped using XPert when they started giving dangerous advice'. She then handed me a low-fat diet sheet and told me that this is the diet York NHS recommends and it's 'the only safe one'.

I don;t think I'll be going on the course when they send me the appointment.  :banghead:

It's incredibly interesting that years ago the advice given to diabetics was to keep carbs very low... and then they changed their minds... and now they daren't change them again.  Or at least some can't/won't.  Really there is no nutrition in carbohydrates which cannot be got elsewhere and in the absence of "easy carbs" the body is very adept in turning protein and fat into the glucose our bodies need for energy.

Well hopefully it will get the deserved attention.

Trudi Deakin was on BBC Breakfast yesterday, at least she got a chance to say her bit and maybe people will at least start thinking about how much carb they eat and what is the true cause of obesity and diabetes (not suggesting the two are related, I have no idea).

The conversation is "hotting up".

This URL should be the video of that interview on the BBC, my browser doesn't support it, maybe yours does, just in case you missed it.

What an appalling debate.  Dr Simon whatisface totally over-rode Dr Trudi Deakin.  Rude man and had completely the wrong end of the stick but didn't allow Trudi to speak or get her point over.
