I was told on the 13th of February that I was pre diabetic and also my BMI needed serious attention. I weighed in at 90 kgs at 5.7inches tall and 70 years of age. One week later I was off on a two weeks cruise around Indonesia. I came back weighing 85kgs and today am 84kgs. Cut down on wine and banned carbs - i.e. potatoes, bread, rice and pasta. Saw the TV programme Truth about Carbs - shocked to see the starch in a bowl of rice equates to 25 sugar cubs. As a result of my cut down my BP has dropped, I no longer feel tired and, to my mind the most amazing of all, my feet didn't swell in the holiday heat. I feel great and am aiming for 75kgs.
