Default Diabetic Living Magazine

So I accompanied my husband for routine check up at the doctor and as we were in the waiting room, I picked up a copy of Diabetic Living magazine and thumbed through it.

It was filled with photos and recipes of all manner of carb and sugar laden meals, snacks, and desserts. In fact, on the cover was a photo of an apple pie. I showed it to my husband and we were both in shock and what they're promoting in that thing.

I just don't get how the whole industry is set up to convince us we need carbs and sugar.

Here's a link to their webpage and look at what they have on it.

The magazine, and other of its kind, are a joke!

Only if you've got a sad sense of humour As something supposed to help diabetics, the content is little short of poison!

It really is sad! And you can bet there are tons of ads for meds that will allow you to eat anything you want, just shoot up or pop a pill after &/or before. With carp like this out there, is it any wonder we have a hard time convincing some the lc/hf woe is really the best for diabetics?

This magazine was in the waiting room of my former doctors office. Just one of the reasons I found another doctor. I figured any doctor that put this out for their patients to read knew little or nothing about treating Diabetes, and I was right.

I had a subscription to this magazine before I found LCHF WOE. I thought I was doing a good thing! I did not renew my subscription. I read the few remaining mags that still come in for the laughs they provide, then I toss them in the trash so some unsuspecting person doesn't get misinformed.

Yes, it so important to always ensure potentially dangerous objects do not fall into innocent hands!

OMG...I opened the link and looked at the pictures and I swear my BG just spiked high. With all the new and fancy diabetes drugs they keep coming up with, there is no incentive to find a cure.
