The Defeat Diabetes Program: How does it work?

When you embark on a new lifestyle and way of eating, it can be nearly impossible to know what results and benefits you'll experience.

Whether you're looking to improve your stamina, increase energy, sleep better, lower your blood glucose levels, or take control of your overall health, the Defeat Diabetes Program can help.

Adopting a low carb approach to eating, science tells us, is the key to putting type 2 diabetes into remission.

Before you get started, here's a few things you need to know.

How does it work?

Our program features 13 lessons on topics including Fats, Carbohydrates, Meal Planning, Shopping, Exercise, Food Cravings, Sleep and more. These lessons, led by health professional experts include:

  • 100+ hours of masterclass videos
  • Pre-designed and custom meal plans
  • A shopping list generator
  • Articles
  • Quizzes
  • A supportive closed Facebook community to keep you motivated and to share advice
  • Cooking demonstrations videos with former MasterChef Matt Hopcraft
  • A rich library of resources designed to support the Defeat Diabetes community and answer your questions

On top of that, we have more than 70 recipes (with new recipes added each week), giving you the skills to cook low carb, healthy fat recipes now and into the future. All are designed to be easy to prep and cook (most are under 30 minutes), economical to shop for and delightfully delicious.

All our information and support is available to you from the moment you join, and we release new articles, videos, recipes and meal plans every week.

Join a vibrant community

Our members gain exclusive access to our vibrant private Facebook community. Here, we lend each other support, share advice and recommendations and exclusive information.

In addition, members gain exclusive access to our private Facebook Live sessions. Each focuses on a different topic, and members can ask questions directly of our health professionals. These are recorded and made avaialble in the private Facebook community for the benefit of all our members.

What does is cost?

We have two memberships available on the Defeat Diabetes Program.

A three-month membership is $49.99 and a 12-month membership is $99.99.

Our founder Dr. Peter Brukner explains: "We have already spent over a million dollars creating this program. We have funded all of this out of our own pockets - no Government support, no industry support. Similar programs overseas cost twice as much (UK) up to six times as much (USA), but we were desperate to keep the costs as low as possible.

"Two dollars a week is not much to pay when the likelihood is that you will gain hundreds of dollars of benefits such as reduced medications and doctors’ visits, not to mention the long term reductions in health costs and work absenteeism associated with type 2 diabetes. What is your health worth?"

What can you expect?

  • Improved blood glucose levels: Low carb diets tend to improve blood sugar levels almost immediately. This is because carbohydrates are literally made of glucose molecules, which enter the blood after digestion.
  • Better sleep: Reduced weight loss can help ease symptoms of sleep apnoea, meaning you shouldn't be waking so easily in the night (good for you, and your partner!).
  • Weight loss: Low carbohydrate diets are well known for weight loss. This is due to a combination of better appetite control, leading to reduced consumption, and increased energy expenditure, even at rest.
  • Reduced risk of arthritis: When you reduce your carbohydrate intake, you reduce inflammation in the body. Reduced inflammation leads to improvements in joint pain.
  • Reduced diabetes medications: By lowering blood glucose levels, low carbohydrate diets can also reduce the need for diabetic medications. Keep in close contact with your doctor so these medications can be adjusted accordingly.
  • Reduced reflux and heartburn: Research shows that low carbohydrate diets can reduce the amount of acid in the food pipe, which causes symptoms of reflux.

Success Stories

People just like you have successfuly put their type 2 diabetes into remission, and are experiencing a quality of life like never before.

From improved mental clarity, better concentration and reduced medications, to dramatic weight loss, better mental health and enough energy to easily get through the day.

Just look at what Rob has to say: "I still can't believe how quickly things changed, and how good the results have been. Not only the weight loss, but my skin is clear, my eyesight is better, I don’t crave sugary foods, my beer gut is gone, and the best part is I no longer snore and sleep through the night!"
