Last week we launched a new position statement, looking at the evidence for using low carb diets for the management of Type 2 diabetes. This week's blog takes this position statement, and breaks it down into simpler and easier to understand language
Although carbohydrate restriction is not a new approach for the management of Type 2 diabetes, interest in its safety and efficacy has increased significantly in recent years. The purpose of the current position statement is to summarise the key relevant research in this area and to clearly set out the position of X-PERT Health on the use of low carbohydrate dietary approaches (LCDs) in this population.
As we welcome in the New Year and decade many of us start thinking about how we can improve our lives, careers, relationships and much more. This blog takes a look at the pros and cons of New Year resolutions.
This week's blog discusses antinutrients - what they are, where to find them and whether they hinder or can potentially help improve our overall health.
How we gain weight is incredibly diverse, yet also specific to any one individual gaining weight. This blog will act as the first in a three part series and will cover physiological weight gain.
Findings from a recent study suggests that blood pressure meds are more effective when taken in the evening, findings that might have implications for lots of people
In people with Type 2 diabetes, much of the research on low carb diets suggests it is better in the short term but that there is little difference in outcomes compared to other ways of eating over a longer duration. But these studies often don't consider the different impact these diets have on medication needs, an omission that may have a major influence on the conclusions.
In this week`s blog, we discuss how food can have an impact on your mood and behaviour and most importantly, what you can do about it.
With the widespread popularity of vegetarian and vegan diets in recent years, this week's blog focuses on some of the factors that should be taken into consideration for individual health if you are, or thinking of going, meat-free.
Research has always favoured the use of carbohydrates prior to partaking in, during and whilst recovering from physical activity. Does this mean those following a dietary approach that restricts carbs will inhibit their activity capacity? This blog explores this topic.
Our aim is to ensure that all people at risk of, or diagnosed with, long-term health conditions have access to good quality and enjoyable structured education that helps them self-manage their condition leading to improved health and wellbeing.
