    Hi all

    I’ve not really been on the forum since I joined in 2013, but after 6 years of being a type 2 diabetic I’ve managed to reverse it. I did 12 weeks of The Fast 800 diet and have lost 2 stone, it’s basically a low carb, low sugar Mediterranean diet with delicious food and also involves some fasting. My HbA1c has gone from 53 to 35 I have also dropped 2 dress sizes, my skin and hair are in great condition and I feel amazing. Just wanted to share my success, wish the books could be given out through the NHS to all type 2 diabetics. I’d like to loose another stone then carry on with this way of eating for life but obviously eating more calories to maintain my weight - hope this benefits someone

    It does help @DebbyC, because it emphasises that there are several ways to gain control, and encourages others to seek their own individual solution.
    Well done! Keep posting.

    Well done Debby! How was the journey? I hesitate to join it as I think 800 cals a day would make me miserable and lose focus on work. Any tips?

    Hi

    I can honestly say I was hungry for a few days and then after that I was fine, after 4 weeks on the plan I dropped to 2 meals a day as anymore was just too much, I’m now doing 5:2 and still loosing weight, I only have another 9.5lbs to loose to get to my goal weight. After only a couple of weeks I had more energy, the brain fog lifted, I run twice a week now and walk everywhere. I feel amazing. My nurse has been amazed with the results, she has bought a copy of the book and is going to read it and recommend it to the practice to help other diabetics there, if you’re interested there is a group on Facebook called 800 Fast community you could join and see the results people are getting. Hope this helps and good luck on your journey
