    I was diagnosised with type 2 at the end of May and so far lost 10 kg. changed diet (semi LCHF) and started exercising a couple of days a week. Started really well but after 3 weeks my energy levels plummeted - absolutely shattered all the time, really short temper. Seem to have ridden that out and have some energy again. Hope to see the weight keep coming off. Although can't afford the new clothes!!

    nice post Sue.. I have been through post titled cut back the calories under Weight Loss Strategies for Diabetics blog. Cutting calories too fast, as this could not only cause issues with blood sugars, but may cause the body to slow down the metabolism as well.
    You know.. this create lot of confusion.

    Diabetes and sudden weight loss. In people with diabetes, insufficient insulin prevents the body from getting glucose from the blood into the body's cells to use as energy. When this occurs, the body starts burning fat and muscle for energy, causing a reduction in overall body weight.

    Hey, if you want to lose weight in 7 days then try General Motor 7 day diet plan. It was very effective.

    Hello Kat - at the top of each section in the forum there is a thing to click on to start a new thread.
    Why would anyone using fat for fuel want to use a fat binder?
    It is just part of the old fat is bad thinking, which has not worked well.
