Hi there I am insulin diabetic and need some tips on losing weight please? Thank you


    Hello! In answer to your recent query, significantly cutting back on calories, especially carbohydrates is known to be a very effective way for those with T2DM to lose weight. As with all weight loss plans, you will need to speak with your doctor about this prior to starting, but certainly there is much research in the area of VLCDs and its efficacy in helping reduce the severity of and indeed completely reverse T2DM completely. Researchers at Newcastle University are very active in this area and the television show Food Hospital, just two weeks ago showed that calorie restriction (using a VLCD) had the biggest impact on weight loss and also helped a participants reverse their T2DM completely. You must speak with your doctor first though. Good luck!
