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.
