We love food as much as the next person.
The Defeat Diabetes approach is simple, and it isn’t extreme. You only need to make small, manageable adjustments to the way you eat that will allow you to enjoy real food without raising your blood sugar.
But what is low carb eating?
Let’s get one thing straight: low carb isn’t dieting. It’s enjoyable and sustainable, and you definitely won’t miss out on anything!
Eating low carb means eating real food. Sue C said it best: "I now cook like my mum did when I was a kid in the 50s!". Before takeaway, before highly-processed food and before meals came in microwaveable containers, we ate food that had minimal ingredients, and we could recognise all of them. (In fact, most food didn't even need a label!) We just ate real food!
The Defeat Diabetes way
All meals on the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program include four basic elements:

What do our members think of low carb eating?
"I used to be a plain cook when dieting; I wasn't inventive. But the Defeat Diabetes has given me a whole new set of options to cook."
"I've always liked to cook, but I really enjoy following the meals in the program. You don't need to eat grains and cereal."
"I know one high carb meal won't kill me, but I still avoid potatoes, bread and starchy foods. It comes naturally now."
Listen to your body - eat when you feel hungry and stop when you feel satisfied. These are the guiding principles of the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program. You'll return to a natural appetite once you reduce your sugar intake and enjoy meals that are lower in carbs and fill you up with protein and fats.
You don't have to stress yourself by counting calories or measuring your food portions. It's as simple as that!
