Diabetes: Can a low carb diet reverse Type 2? One woman changed her life with her diet


No one could explain it: the thyroid function tests returned to normal and the doctors said there was no medical reason. During the following years I tried all the diets. They even prescribed pills to lose fat but they bothered my stomach and I still did not lose weight. I desperately cut everything apart from fruits and vegetables, but I was hungry and I wanted to eat curry to go. I felt tired and bloated. I started drinking cola cans to keep me standing, but I was soon having 30 a day. I also suffered from irritable bowel syndrome and developed severe migraines. Then, nine years ago, I had a wake-up call. I joined a gym and was on tape when an alarm was fired. A message appeared saying that my blood pressure was dangerously high. My GP did tests and told me I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. I was given tablets to lower my blood pressure, statins for cholesterol and metformin to control blood sugar. After my diagnosis, I retired from the queue and tried to eat healthy. However, I ate large bowls of fruit, without realizing that it was full of sugar. Not surprisingly, my weight did not change. Then, three years ago, my husband and I separated and with my imminent 50th birthday, I wrote a list of what I wanted to achieve. Completing a half marathon was an ambition, so I decided to try running. The first time I could not even get to the end of the road, but I kept going and soon I was running one to two miles a day. However, at 13st 13lb I knew I would never complete a half marathon, so I went to see Dr. Peter Foley, a GP in my surgery who had been successful in helping patients lose weight. Dr. Foley said he should forget the advice he had received. about following a low-fat diet and following a low-carb diet instead. He also explained that he had consumed too many carbohydrates, which were broken down into sugars that were then stored as fat. He gave me a diet sheet that recommended eating dairy products, meat, eggs, fish and vegetables with a low glycemic index. GETTY I was allowed moderate amounts of pulses, nuts, seeds and fruits and even some chocolate, provided it had a high cocoa content. The red light foods were potatoes, rice, bread, flour, corn and cereal-based products, dried fruits, sweets, sugary drinks, margarine and omega-6-based oils such as sunflower oil. The next day I had eggs and mushrooms for breakfast and dinner I made chicken curry with cauliflower rice. Other nights I ate stakes with broccoli and zucchini or homemade cake made with sweet potato. I never felt hungry. In fact, I felt better than I had in 25 years. I also started training for a half marathon and the weight decreased. I lost 10 pounds in the first two weeks. In September of last year, I finished the race and was delighted. By December, it was 8-10, smaller than 20, and weighed 10 pounds and 13 pounds. The full version of this article appears in the current edition of Healthy Food [HEALTHY FOOD] I celebrated it in paragliding in Tenerife, something that was always too heavy
