Bruce Elliott and Renee McBride have ditched their nightly biscuit habit and shed seven stone in just a few months
He is my husband and his weight seems stable at 12 Stone 7 pounds, goes up and down a couple of pounds. I doubt if his sugar addiction will change, its always there in the background, however Bruce's choice is to minimise his risks for cancer, heart disease and stroke and so with the weight loss and a complete change of eating once he completed the 1:1 Diet we are managing his blood glucose and weight by eating low carb, high fat and good proteins. He has now been medication free for 8 months with stable bloods. Everyday is a challenge for him as he been overweight for 60 years before using this diet. It's so good to see you wish him well. ReneeHmmm...I just wonder whether that weight will stay off, it quite often doesn't after a month or more on meal replacements.Let's hope his chocolate and cake addiction has been cured.
That said, I wish him all the best and say well done.
Bruce and I are the same age, similar height and 29.6 was also my BMI at the beginning, so lots of similarities. But old codgers?Well done Martin you've nailed it and yes, it's uncommon for a type 2 to reverse after two decades but as Bruce says, "if an old codger like me can so can others" Renee
