Dr Michael Mosley, author of the bestselling 5:2 Fast Diet, reveals a game-changing approach to one of the greatest silent epidemics of our time - raised blood sugar levels. The food we eat today, high in sugar and easily digestible carbohydrates, is not only making us fat, but is putting us at risk of type 2 diabetes, strokes, dementia, cancer and a lifetime on medication. More than a third of adults in the UK now have raised blood sugar levels and most don't know it. In this timely book, Dr Mosley explains why we pile on dangerous abdominal fat and shows us how to shed it, fast. He demolishes common myths, such as the claim that steady weight loss is always rapid weight loss and that those who lose weight rapidly will inevitably put it back on. This is a book not just for those at highest risk but for anyone who has struggled with their weight and wants to regain control of their health. "I feel amazing. I have been given another chance at life." Cassie, 28 - lost 20kg. Average weight loss: 14kg in 8 weeks. Includes a detailed 8-week programme with menu plans.

This is a tough diet - even though it says in it that it isn't. I only managed 4 weeks and religiously stuck to the regime. In the first week I lost 4kg and my blood sugar dropped dramatically. The next week I lost 1 kg and blood sugars remained low. In the third and fourth weeks I didn't lose any weight (yes, I was doing and eating exactly the same as in the first two weeks) and my blood sugar fluctuated up and down. So I moved onto the 5:2 diet. I have been doing this for three weeks. I put 2kgs back on in the first week - even though I had not reverted to my old way of life (still no carbos, exercising etc). In the third week I lost .3kg. I plan to continue with the 5:2 to see if I can lose the remaining 5kg that was my goal. I continue to monitor my blood sugar and work out what is really bad for it and what helps. Not a miracle cure but did help me lose some weight.

I have been under a doctor and sports scientist using this book as the basic. I have been on a DEXA machine to test the visceral fats percentage and after a month it has reduced by 17%. One of my friends also started a week later and he has lost 11Kgs to my 4 kgs. This book really does work and the "diet" bit isn't too onerous.

The book arrived on time and in perfect condition. I have just started reading this book. I am a type one diabetic of many years and do not want to become complacent with new information.

Very interesting reading, however it does go on to mention an operation. Unheard of here in Australia, can be misleading to the general public.

My husband and I both read the book and did this program together much easier doing it this way.we both found it easy to stick too, found drinking water often got me over any hunger. We both lost weight my husband lost 14kgs in 7 weeks and I lost 6kgs. The difference maybe due to his more intensive exercise program than mine. I have recommended it to friends with type 2 diabetes one of who is doing well in her 3rd week,the other is at the reading stage!

That Diabetes is reversible. Unbelievable! fantastic!
This is all possible from weight reduction and change of diet. I await the outcome of the current studies taking place of which results are expected in 2018.
I have lost weight and my blood tests have come back very positive. sugar level are also great ( back to single digits) I am hopeful that this will continue. Most importantly there is hope for my children and their children.
Chris on
Although I haven't read this book from cover to cover yet, I'm sure the method set out would work well but I believe it would be hard to stick to.

Read this after I'd devised the same strategy for myself.
Dropped 2kg a week for 6 weeks to reach target weight range of 70-72kg. After reaching target weight I added 1 hour a day of proper weight training in real gyms, daily weigh ins, tracking on phone. Am now 69.5kg 181cm at 10 months after starting. This book confirms that the medical emergency is the weight and that shifting it is job#1 for your health. Everyone will lose weight if they stop eating. Stopping eating to reach target weight is safer than being overweight.
Being obese is unsafe. Riding a motorcycle without a helmet style unsafe. It will kill you just as dead. Lose the weight, add the weight training and come back to life.

A fantastic read, everyone should read this regardless whether you have diabetes or not. It just makes a lot of sense to me. I am not a diabetic nor am I a prediabetes sufferer but can still take away a lot of information and change my life for the better. I have had chronic fatigue for years and years and have adjusted my diet cutting out most "white starches" and most sugar and have not felt this good in 20 years! A huge Michael Mosley fan! Five star rating from me!

Great advice, well written. Now if only I could follow it...
