From the author of the million-copy, bestselling Fast Diet - a revolutionary new approach to longterm health. Everywhere we look in the world today, we are encouraged to treat ourselves to foods and drinks that are damaging our bodies. Eating low-quality carbohydrates produces a constant overload of sugar in our blood stream that furs up the arteries and piles fat into our internal organs. The result has been a doubling in the number of type-2 diabetics over the last few decades, as well as a surge in those with the potentially hazardous condition, pre-diabetes. It is now known that even moderately elevated blood sugar levels can trigger a range of life-threatening diseases, including cancer, heart disease and dementia. Scientists in the UK have recently made a revolutionary discovery. They have not only identified an important cause of type-2 diabetes but have demonstrated in medical trials that you can prevent and even reverse the condition. In this book Dr Michael Mosley, the medical journalist who alerted the world to the benefits of intermittent fasting draws on the work of Professor Roy Taylor - one of the UK's foremost diabetes experts - to present a radical new solution to 'diabesity'. He explains the science of how and why rapid weight loss combats blood sugar problems, and offers a clear, precise plan - complete with delicious, healthy recipes and menu plans - to enable you to regain your health and then stay on track - medication free. As Dr Mosley says, it is never too late to act...

I found this book to be persuasive, easy to read and absorb, essential to have at hand and easy to reread sections as needed. The program worked for me and nine months on my blood sugar level is completely within the normal range and I have so far managed to keep 13kgs of weight off. A few of my friends have been inspired to try it and it is working for them too. This is my second copy as my first copy has been on loan for months now.

      Comments about Blood Sugar Fix:

      We have only been on it one week - I lost 2kg and my husband lost 2.5kg.
      Have not used the recipes but used my own judgement from the guidelines.
      Haven't really found it hard to ditch bread and cake, rice or pasta.
      Maybe a little tired but otherwise feeling OK.
