Watching with interest. Just bought the book and am reading it now.
I'm pre-diabetic. Have been in the past and controlled with diet/weight loss. Had gestational diabetes which resolved with arrival of DS. Gained a lot of weight when I stopped breastfeeding/went back to work, so I've been monitoring my blood sugar and, lo and behold, it's up.
Bit about sustainability of 800 calories/day but need to do something so keeping an open mind whilst I read the book...
I've just bought the book, currently reading and assessing whether it's for me. I don't know if I'm pre-diabetic but am certainly overweight and have a sugar addiction.
We already eat similar foods to the suggested recipes but augment with carbs and I suspect portion control is an issue.
Planning on doing all the pre-checks over the next couple of days including buying a prick test kit. I don't plan to diagnose myself as pre-diabetic but Im interested to see if my fasting blood sugar is high as indicated in the book. I'm planning on trying the diet to reach a goal weight, I'd like to lose about 15lbs. This may or may not take 8 weeks but I'm going to see what sort of results I get.
