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.

Our modern diet, 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. Close to a quarter of adults in Australia and New Zealand now have raised blood sugar levels or are at risk of developing diabetes – 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 better than 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.

INCLUDES A DETAILED 8-WEEK PROGRAMME WITH MENU PLANS

I have followed this for four weeks and is everything it says it is. First i sat down and read cover to cover, then my husband did the same and we have changed the way we eat. This is evidence-based, accessible, scientifically founded material. Michael Mosely is a brilliant communicator. Also my husband and I have lost weight, given up our sweets habits, and did I mention I lost weight?

                Michael Mosley has written an easy to read book explaining how sugar adversely affects our health and blood sugars. I read this book in 2 sittings. He gives realistic examples and explains simply how we can change our eating habits and the benefits of doing so. After reading this book I now feel confident in starting the 8wbsd - knowing it is well researched and healthy.

                    Comments about The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet:

                    I purchased the book originally due to knowledge of the author's prior work and to get another viewpoint after being on a ketogenic diet (which I was pretty much forced to go on due to a host of recently discovered food intolerances). This book is very easy to read, provides a good amount of background information (without quoting too much medical mumbo-jumbo), provides practical suggestions for living and eating in a healthy way and includes lots of recipes. Mosely provides for pretty much anyone - all ages, active/sedentary, those who like to cook/not.. I ended up buying more books to give to people as gits. Deserves a place in anyone's library.
