Diabetes Self-Management magazine has introduced a new section to their website called Flashpoints. Flashpoints is a pro vs. con debate-style column where two people duke it out on a particularly controversial diabetes topic. This week, you can see me in action as I go head-to-head with David Mendosa over the low carb fad. Personally, I’m a fan of the “smart carb” diet with a heavy dose of “moderation,” which you can read more about here. I realize that the low-carb diet works for some people, but I get frustrated when low-carb fanatics become holier than thou and chastise us “regular-carbers” for our own eating habits.
Speaking of eating habits, this is the last week to enter into the Diabetes Mine Holiday Survival Sweepstakes (holiday survival… holidays dinners… eating… eating habits… OK, maybe it’s a bit of a stretch). This week the question is “How do you deal with holiday stress?” All the winners from the past few weeks are entered to win the fabulous GRAND PRIZE coming up in two weeks. Very excited to see all the answers for this week! It’s been so fun to read. I’ve learned a lot from this contest.
