BANT Congratulates David Davis on Reclaiming His Health

David Davis announced this week, through the Daily Mail, that he had lost 25lbs, improved his non-alcoholic fatty liver disease profile and reduced his risk of developing Type 2 Diabetes by following his own version of a lower-carbohydrate diet. The British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine (BANT) congratulates him on joining his friend and colleague Tom Watson, as well as a multitude of other British people, in reclaiming his health.

BANT has been highlighting since the launch of its Wellbeing Guidelines in 2016, the benefits of a lower-carbohydrate diet, particularly in relation to Type 2 Diabetes. Recent scientific studies supporting this approach have also led other health professionals, including Dr David Unwin, into supporting the lower-carbohydrate approach. This is in direct contrast to the current UK guidelines, featured within Public Health England’s (PHE) Eatwell Guide which recommends: “base meals on potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and other starchy carbohydrates – choosing wholegrain versions where possible”.

Mr Davis also highlights Professor Dame Sally Davies’, Chief Medical Officer for England, aim to launch a new review into the escalating crisis that is childhood obesity. He mentions that Ultra-Processed Food and Drink may be targeted. BANT published an article on this very topic in July this year: https://bant.org.uk/2019/07/03/bant-cautions-against-dropping-policies-that-support-reduced-consumption-of-ultra-processed-foods/

BANT would like to caution, however, that obesity and diabetes are complex conditions and changes need to be established to engender a long-term cultural shift which allows healthy behaviour adaptations to an environment which offers so many opportunities for unhealthy indulgence either knowingly or in ignorance.  BANT Nutrition Practitioners do not suggest ‘one-size-fits-all’ advice following the health trend of the moment or outdated population-based recommendations but take into account individuality that enables personalisation of dietary advice based on the most up-to-date research available.

BANT is very much aware that much of the advice and information issued regarding the nation’s health and what we should be eating is confusing and often conflicting.  It can be difficult for the public to navigate and interpret the information available, especially in the light of Public Health England’s previous admission that the Eatwell guide is a food selection tool that has been designed to cover the population as a whole, which does not take into account individual health and weight profiles.

BANT experts carefully developed a set of Wellbeing Guidelines, based on the latest science and research in the field of nutrition for optimal health. The BANT Wellbeing Guidelines were specifically designed to provide clear, concise, easy to understand information, avoiding outdated information and research, and addressing some of the most common health concerns.  The most frequent reasons people seek nutritional advice is for weight management and/ or for general health and wellbeing. These issues are addressed by BANT with the following:
