    I'm day 3 into this diet.
    Will keep you posted on how it goes!

    I've just done my bloods and was disappointed to see 8.2. I had had a coffee with sweeteners and some sugar free gum so I'm hoping that was why? Considering I haven't eaten since 7 last night and only drunk water I was hoping for better.

    Hi I am also on this diet. At present taking in 1500 calories which includes one Cambridge product. After 3 weeks I have lost 1 stone! Was diagnosed type 2 two years ago and have been on insulin since day one. My bloods now are fantastic with a reading of 5.1-5.4 on waking. Two hours after a meal between 6.8 - 7.4. Hope you continue as it does work....have another 5 stone to lose :( but I am going to get there.... :D
