Defeat Diabetes

Duration: 1:03

When you’re on a diet, there is the expectation that it won’t be forever.

That’s why the Defeat Diabetes Program is not a diet, it’s a sustainable lifestyle change, and Dr Peter Brukner explains why our program will make you feel so good, you’ll want to stay on this way of eating forever.

Dr Paul Mason: So Peter, I often get asked whether a low carb diet is sustainable in the longer term?

Dr Peter Brukner: Well for a start Paul, I don't like using the word “diet because to me, diet is something short-term temporary. Whereas, this low carb program is more a way of eating or a lifestyle for life.

Dr Paul Mason: And you don't feel deprived at all? Eating low carb?

Dr Peter Brukner: Not at all, I enjoy every meal I have.I have a choice of delicious meals. And the other thing is you feel so good on this diet that makes it very easy to sustain.

Dr Paul Mason: So, I guess what you're saying is that the way of eating that gets you healthy, is a way of eating that keeps you healthy and there's really no reason you can't sustain it in the longer term.

Dr Peter Brukner: Absolutely!
