Four steps to reducing carbs

Low carb doesn’t need to be hard and you don’t have to miss out!

Eat filling fats

  • Eating fat doesn't make you fat.
  • Fats like butter and olive oil can stabilise your hunger and energy levels.

The Defeat Diabetes way?

Enjoy fats like butter, cream and full-fat dairy. 

Prioritise protein

  • Protein is essential. We need it to build and repair muscle and cells.
  • Protein keeps you full and reduces cravings.

The Defeat Diabetes way?

Prioritise meat, poultry, fish or eggs for every meal.

Healthier swaps

  • Use almond or coconut flour when baking.
  • Swap pasta for zucchini 'noodles', and try crisp lettuce instead of tacos!

The Defeat Diabetes way?

Stick to under 50 grams of carbs each day.

Don't deprive!

  • Defeat Diabetes is not a diet; it's a way of life.
  • Enjoy treats like dark chocolate or almond flour cakes. Delicious!

Know your risk and prevent type 2 diabetes

More than 120,000 Australians developed type 2 diabetes in the past year alone.

That's one person diagnosed every 5 minutes!

Although type 2 diabetes is often treated with medication and modifications to diet, it is a serious, life-threatening condition.

Understanding your risk of developing type 2 diabetes is critical. Prevention could save your life.
