      Hi Vivien, I congratulate you on the weight loss and wondered if you wouldn't mind giving me some pointers, as I've been trying to lose and not getting anywhere, despite going without many of the 'nice foods'. I'm a 69 yr old male and have been on about 111 kg for ages. BMI of 34. I'm reasonably active around the home. . Thank you in anticipation.

      Hi Viviennem, i'm working at a production company and we are looking for people to participate in a video for a supermarket, promoting healthy eating to help improve diabetes. The video will be of someone with type 2 diabetes cooking a delicious healthy meal with our presenter (who has a background in nutrition) chatting whilst cooking in a home environment. You can contact me at emma@maltfilms.com or on 02070332812
