    Hi everyone
    I have type2 and am trying desperately to get to a healthy weight, which is what I have been trying to do for mOst of my life. I have lost around a stone but have now stabilised and I still need to lose another 3 stone at least. My problem is I do not know which way to turn as there is so much advice out there as to how to lose weight. At the moment my appetite has gone into overdrive , I don't know how to curb it.
    What to do for the best, any ideas!!!!!

    The answer is easy ! Doing it is another matter ! Easy answer is to eat less and exercise more but I guess this isn't what you want to hear. Can you give us any more background info ? Meds etc ? Current diet ?

    Tell us a bit more about your diet and maybe some typical meals so we can advise you further.

    Life is not easy and we all go through loss, stress, bereavement etc. I don't have a magic answer, my focus would be I want to hang on to my lower limbs and vision ! Bit harsh but works for me. The low carb works, just try to stick with it. You know what you need to do :)

    I tried the Newcastle Diet which worked wonders for me. It broke food habits I'd had for years.
    The maintenance is slightly harder a few months down the line but I generally feel it was a great thing for me.
