I'm going to be taking a break from blogging for at least a month, possibly more, for a very good reason. The editors at Diabetes Spectrum, a journal of the American Diabetes Association, have asked me to write an article on a low-carbohydrate meal pattern for people with diabetes and prediabetes. Needless to say, this is extremely exciting news and an offer I absolutely could not refuse! Diabetes Spectrum is a peer-reviewed journal whose subscribers are physicians, nurse practitioners, and certified diabetes educators. This could help increase awareness about the benefits and safety of low-carbohydrate diets for diabetes management, which is the reason I started this website in the first place. I'll need to spend many hours researching and writing this article, and since I already have a full-time job and like to devote at least part of my free time to non-nutrition-related things, the blog will have to take a back seat until I've completed the piece.
Thank you all for understanding and for supporting my efforts. I'll definitely be back by mid-to-early March, hopefully with some interesting information about the latest in low-carb research.
