The Diabetes Plan

Dr Peter Brukner is the founder of the Defeat Diabetes Low Carb Program. The Diabetes Plan is a companion to the program and offers hope to every Australian diagnosed with pre-diabetes or type 2 diabetes.

  • Description

  • Information

At age 60, Dr Peter Brukner was diagnosed with pre-diabetes, despite having followed the dietary advice of his own profession all of his adult life.

Intrigued, Peter did a deep dive into the research, and quickly reversed his dietary practices, ditching high-carb, low-fat for low-carb, healthy-fat.

He lost 13 kilograms and dramatically improved his metabolic health. To help others achieve remission, Peter created an online course called the Defeat Diabetes Program, which has seen thousands of Australians lose weight and reverse type 2 diabetes.

In The Diabetes Plan, Peter shares his approach to diet, along with meal plans, testimonials and more than 45 recipes.

Accessible, authoritative and effective, this is a one-stop guide to how to avoid diabetes, reverse a type 2 diabetes diagnosis, and reduce (or ditch) the need for diabetes medication.

The Diabetes Plan helped me to finally get a grip on my condition. I no longer feel like it controls me - I am now definitely the one in the drivers seat! I have more energy and my blood sugars have been below 6.5 for the first time in years.

I have confidence following this plan knowing it's been created by doctors. I like that the info is backed by science and even the eating plan make sense and seems achievable. I might be at risk of Type 2 but with this book I've a better chance of dodging the bullet.

I've been a yo-yo dieter for years and my meds have slowly increased as a result. But I have been following the advice in The Diabetes Plan and can honestly say I've never once felt hungry, and the weight has melted off.
