The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet

HFG nutritionist Amanda Ursell investigates the new diet with the startling claim that it can reverse type 2 diabetes

DIET WATCH

MICHAEL MOSLEY, of BBC Two’s Trust Me, I’m a Doctor fame, believes he’s devised a short-term diet that can cut our risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease and cancer. It can even, he says, cure type 2 diabetes.

What’s the premise?

MICHAEL CLAIMS the 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet will shift an average of 14kg in eight weeks – that works out at around 4lb a week (twice as much as the maximum of 1–2lb a week usually recommended by health professionals for safe and longlasting weight loss). In particular, it’s designed to shed dangerous abdominal (visceral) fat fast, so it’s targeted at people who are at the highest risk of ‘lifestyle diseases’ such as type 2 diabetes, but also anyone who has struggled with their weight and wants to get their health back on track. Done properly, the author says, rapid weight loss is an extremely effective way to shed fat, combat blood sugar problems, reverse type 2 diabetes, and even cure it.
