I am not diabetic yet - but I am high risk and need to do something to reduce my risks. I am overweight (not obese but a couple of stone too heavy and have a heart condition). My husband is T2 diabetic and he is underweight and always has been. Apparently 1 in 10 diabetics are not overweight. He gets tired of all the diabetic advice telling people to lose weight when he can't gain weight so he won't come on here himself.
I am looking for a diet that we can both follow. Him - to reduce his blood sugar and eat healthily, and maybe even reduce his need for metformin (which gives him side effects) and for me to reduce weight. Just to complicate matters I have an underactive thyroid (I am on the Thyroid UK forum) and haven't been able to lose weight on a calorie controlled diet but some people on there have recommended the Blood sugar diet.
I was wondering what people think of the Michael Mosely 8 week Blood Sugar diet, if they have tried it, and if it would be suitable for us both to follow. I've got so many diet books, I don't want to add to the clutter by buying another one if it won't help.
