Edi­tor’s note

Diabetic Living - - Contents - Toni Eatts, Edi­tor

Ev­ery­thing you read in Di­a­betic Liv­ing mag­a­zine comes with the seal of ap­proval of our di­a­betes health pro­fes­sion­als – and that’s what makes it such an em­pow­er­ing guide to im­prove your well­be­ing.

One of the ex­perts we rou­tinely call on is the di­eti­tian who works with our tal­ented Food Edi­tor, Ali­son Roberts. To­gether they cre­ate DL’s de­li­cious, healthy recipes and that is why I want to in­tro­duce you to Shan­non Lav­ery (page 82).

Shan­non is an ac­cred­ited prac­tis­ing di­eti­tian who has worked in lead­ing Syd­ney hos­pi­tals and spent four years with Di­a­betes Australia be­fore en­ter­ing pri­vate prac­tice. Bonus: she’s also a good cook! (For more, go to bet­ter­choic­es­net­work.com.au)

If weight loss is your goal, turn to page 78 and fol­low the seven-day meal plan and Shan­non’s tips for a healthy salad. Need ad­di­tional mo­ti­va­tion to shed ki­los? Try kick-start­ing your diet with the one-rule eat­ing plan on page 86 and step up your ex­er­cise us­ing the tips on walk­ing on page 90.

Speak­ing of walk­ing, I’m head­ing off on a new ad­ven­ture. But be­fore I go, I have to tell you how I’m slim­mer, fit­ter and health­ier thanks to this great mag­a­zine and the ter­rific ad­vice from the DL health pro­fes­sion­als. I’ve also been truly in­spired by the many peo­ple I’ve met who han­dle di­a­betes with such good hu­mour and op­ti­mism. You’re amaz­ing and I thank you.
