    You can't lose with ND really. As JCB man says even if the worst came to the very worst and ND did not put your T2 into remission, you would at least have lost some fat and thereby improved your health.

    Very well done. Congratulations. I too have other health problems which cannot be solved so am relieved that there is possible reversal of this one at least. It's one to cross off the list!

    End of week 4

    Lost 3lbs this week

    Monday FBG 5.8
    Tuesday FBG 4.9
    Wednesday FBG 4.9
    Thursday FBG 4.8
    Friday FBG 5.1
    Saturday FBG 5.7
    Sunday FBG 5.0

    Really good results this week haven't been good in other health news though. But this is one thing that is going great. I'm a day late putting these up as spent day chilling out with kids for mother's Day. Was a strange one with being on the Newcastle but my kids bought me some thoughtful stuff and even got me a carbs and Cal's recipe book so I can start getting ready for when I transfer at the end .

    Haven't posted in nearly a month.
    But doing really well with my FBS always below 6 every morning. Only reason haven't posted is cause being dealing with other health issues. I'm into the start of week 9 and I've lost 2 stone 2 lb . I know some may say the Newcastle diet is only 8 weeks but my doctor has said for 12 weeks.
    I've already been starting to sort out the diet for after and have everything in place for a low carb high fat diet. Hope anyone doing this diet if you feel you have any questions if I can answer I will try my best.

    Today is the final day of my Newcastle diet , I've done 12 weeks as my dietitian wanted me too.
    I've had some ups and downs it's not been easy but I've gotten to the end.
    I started the diet with a weight of 18.6 stone and I'm now 15.8 so just 2 pounds off losing 3stone.
    My bloods every morning are in 5s two hours after eating they don't go above 6.5.
    I've got my new lifestyle planned and ready so as not to fall back over and feel able to cope well.
    I would say to any one newly diagnosed with T2D to just give the Newcastle diet a try , you have nothing to lose by trying.
    So looking forward to my new tomorrow and the next challenge.

    Congratulations; you should be proud of your success - especially sticking with it for 12 weeks! not an easy task. Hope things go well for you into the next stage of your new lifestyle. Perhaps let folks know occasionally how things go for you from here on; it could help to encourage others who may be considering following the Newcastle diet. :)

    The Newcastle diet is only meant for short term , it's sustainable by doing research and following it up with new healthy lifestyle .

    Hi

    Can you let us know what you have been eating? How much you sleep? What time you sleep? Exercise? So I can see similarities and differences
