The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show With Jimmy Moore


Jun 16, 2020

Episode 1650

In this special JIMMY RANTS on The LLVLC Show Episode 1650, Jimmy talks about Diabetes Canada’s response to low-carb diets after a thorough examination of the evidence.

“We know that people that have insulin resistance metabolic syndrome are the targets for a low-carb diet, and they’re seeing that in clinical practice.”

– Jimmy Moore

It’s always nice to see a government agency come to support what we all recognize as a better way of eating. Diabetes Canada, according to their website, is the nation’s most trusted provider of diabetes education, research, resources, and services. We’ve helped millions of Canadians affected by diabetes understand it, manage it, and combat complications since 1953.

In April of 2019, The American Diabetes Association published a consensus report not only endorsing low carb as an option but also acknowledging that reducing carbohydrates is the most effective way to lower blood sugar, regardless of overall diet.

A short time earlier, Diabetes UK and Diabetes Australia also published reports that were favorable to low carb for people with diabetes.

Now, Diabetes Canada has released a paper supporting low-carb diets as an effective option for type 1 and type 2 diabetes management. Listen in today to hear Jimmy talk all about the history of this organization, and why it is so important to tout this organization’s results.
