    As I am not based in the UK it was refreshing to watch "Fixing Dad".

    Here's a direct link to the movie

    The website that supports the story of Geoff Whitington remission from T2DM is

    Its an inspiring film, I am glad Geoff's family took the time to make this very important film.

    FYI I've cycled about 70 miles since Sunday too.

    Well inspired by Geoff Whitington I've been cycling north of 100 miles/week. So a minimum of 15 miles in the late afternoon and sometimes up to 20 miles. I've been taking cues too from Dr Jason Fung too www.tinyurl.com/Dr-JasonFung for his input for diet (or lack there of as in intermittent fasting) and this morning I woke with a 5.2 mmol/L .. So there you have it. More fasting in my life will help my insulin resistance..

    Yes - I enjoyed this too. 1 hour long though. It covers the efforts of two sons in helping their T2 father get to grips with pursuit of a reversal of his T2. Messages here for all of us T2s. For me the UK link is / was http://www.fixingdad.com/watch-the-film .

    Hello I watched this yesterday and found it very moving and inspiring. Little disappointed that they didn't really go into depth about how he did make the changes that he did. Apart from being the next Chris Hoy it didn't really go into his diet changes or medication changes over the 12-18 months. Still well done Geoff and sons very emotional and has inspired me to make a change. so good luck to you sir and thanks
