    I reversed my diagnosis of Diabetes and lost over 4 stone following a ketogenic way of eating. I did this without any medication or exercise.

    This video from the 2ketodudes over at the ketogenic forum will explain how and why a ketogenic (very low cab high fat diet) works.

    What are your thoughts on sugar free gum? is there enough carbs in them to make any difference?

    Before my weight loss and in order to get into Ketosis and switch from burning glucose to burning fat I was consuming under 20g net carbs per day so as long as it was carb free (or near as damn it) and didn't trigger an insulin spike I'd go with it.

    Great post and well done to you @SORTED .
    I feel thst when you start to see results it makes you want to be an ambassador of sorts. I tell people I meet and I find the Americans are the most ignorant of the consequences this diesease. They tell me that not all carbs are bad, ok maybe so, but they think that bread and cakes are essential to living.
    That sugar free foods are good for you! Diet sodas are healthier than full fat sodas. It's an ignorance that will send most of these people to an early grave missing bits from their overweight bodies.
    I'm on week 7 of the 8 week Blood Sugar diet but last week was my 60th birthday and I spent it in Kefalonia.
    I did my best to stay away from the bad things but had 2-3 pieces of bread. A good few beers and brandy. I put on about 6 lbs but I've lost 3 since Monday, so I know I'm back on the right track.
    My B.S. levels this morning where 7.9. That's the highest they've been for a few weeks. I've been hovering around the 7 mark.
    So my 8 week diet may turn into a 10 week diet.
    All I know is I want to really get down to under 5. It's a real goal for me. Overall I've gone from 15st 2lb to 13st 4lb today. I got to 13st 3lb the day before my jollies.
    My next target is 13st 2lb. Then 13st. Then? I don't know.
    I'm still tired though and find it very hard to find time to exercise. When I do i can't complete the task as I run out of steam.
    The good news is I've stopped getting up in the night for a slash and I'm sleeping better.

    Low Carb High Fat as a way of eating has helped my wife to reverse Type 2 diabetes, and helped me to go from being obese to normal weight (BMI 24)
    It isn't new however, check out this diabetic cookbook from 1917 which was before insulin therapy and other drugs were discovered
