I have been given another chance at life.' --Cassie, 28 -- lost 20kgAver...

The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet: Lose weight fast and reprogramme your body Reviews
As a type 2 diabetic, I had heard about the Newcastle diet via the diabetes.co.uk website. This is a very low calorie diet lasting 8 weeks which has been proven to reverse newly diagnosed type 2. I have also been really interested to read about fasting overall and the benefits to diabetics in terms of weight loss and blood sugar control. The theory is that the rapid weight loss clears fat out of the liver and pancreas helping the body become more responsive to insulin again. This book is loosely ...more
I am a big fan of Dr Michael Mosley - and this one did not disappoint.
It is not secret I am a big fan of Dr Michael Mosley – I love listening to him (he has a great voice) and I am intrigued by the lengths he goes to test a hypothesis – he uses his own body to conduct scientific experiments on and shares with the reader/viewer the process and the results. His advice is simple, easy to understand and based on science and medical knowledge (he s a qualified GP come film maker).
Before I st ...more
"This is a book about blood sugar. It is about the epidemic of type 2 diabetes that has engulfed the world in recent years, It is also about the insidious build-up of blood sugar that precedes type 2 diabetes - a condition known as prediabetes. This is a wake-up call. A warning." - page 13
So, let's get to the point - EVERYONE is at a high risk of developing diabetes in their lifetime. With the high sugary foods we eat and the nonsensical 'more is better' eating myths we still cling to, diabetes ...more
Even before reading this book I was working on cutting down my sugar intake! I now appreciate the importance of doing so.
I am now more conscious of the dangers of too much sugar and although I did not feel the need to rigorously carry out the diet recommendations. I like to think that having lived in Italy for many years that I already have a reasonably healthy diet and I try to lead an active lifestyle.
My personal feelings are that too much of so many things are not healthy for us, so I try to ...more
This book gives hope and emphasizes that each one of us has a big responsibility when it comes to our health and wellness. The research and stories are interesting and motivational but the recipes seem just complicated and not very tasty. I will do my own dishes but try to stay Medi.
This is a book. It is about health. It uses science (good) and wild promises (bad). This is a book.
I have been stuck indoors for a good number of weeks now due to illness, so the days are dull and dragging. Today, I ventured downstairs and found a copy of this book on the table. I genuinely have no idea whose it is, where it came from, why it was lying there...but I have nothing better to do, so why not read it?
There are some elements that I like:
One - it is encouraging us to think about our hea ...more
The book is concise, straightforward and easy to read. It seems well researched, contains plenty of information and the recipes are well-written and easy to follow.
Time will tell if following this regimen actually works. My only concern is that it's hard to actually commit to such an extreme calorie restriction diet for 6-8 weeks. We also need to be real. There is no curing diabetes. You can CONTROL it, but there is no CURE. The recipes in the book can help with controlling diabetes and are gr ...more
