Defeat Diabetes

Take a look at the most recent results from our 2023 member survey to see just how much impact Defeat Diabetes is making!

The past 18 months have been an incredible journey since the Defeat Diabetes Program launched! We’ve helped more than 5000 people learn to love a low carb lifestyle, appeared on TV, radio and in the press, and we’ve tested an AWFUL lot of low carb dishes for the app (no complaints there).

But the proof, as they say, is in the (low carb) pudding. So we asked our members to share their results from following the Defeat Diabetes Program.

From weight loss to remission, better blood sugar control to boundless energy and a newfound passion for cooking, our members had plenty to say about the benefits of the Defeat Diabetes Program!

With our mission in mind to help 100,000 Australians achieve remission, we reckon we’re off to a flying start – and this is only the beginning.

“It’s so pleasing to see that in eighteen months, Defeat Diabetes has given thousands of Aussies new hope in the fight against type 2 diabetes and pre-diabetes, with many members enjoying the added benefits of weight loss, higher energy levels and a reduction in medication,” said Defeat Diabetes founder Dr Peter Brukner.

“These findings are consistent with the growing body of evidence that a diet low in carbohydrates and high in protein and healthy fats can halt and send type 2 diabetes, our nation’s single biggest health issue, into remission,” he added.

“Type 2 diabetes is one of Australia’s most burdensome epidemics, costing our nation more than $19 billion annually and causing serious complications like heart disease, blindness, kidney disease and amputation. Unlike other epidemics, it is entirely preventable with a healthy lifestyle and improved nutrition.

“Education is critical to address this epidemic. We were all taught in the past that healthy foods were low in fat and high in carbs, but this approach has only made us fatter and sicker. Today we know this is no longer the case, and our mission at Defeat Diabetes is to show Aussies how to reclaim their lives using a low carb lifestyle.” said Dr Brukner.
