Dr Michael Mosley, bestselling author of the 5:2 Fast Diet and The Clever Guts Diet, approaches the silent epidemic of raised blood sugar levels. The high number of sugary foods and drinks we consume as a society is having a huge impact on our health - not just by causing weight gain, but by putting people at risk of type 2 diabetes, dementia, cancer, strokes, and more. Over one third of adults in the UK have high blood sugar levels, and most of them don't even know it. In this book, he explains both how to lose weight and maintain a healthy blood sugar level. He also challenges the idea that rapid weight loss is unhealthy and won't last. This book contains a detailed 8-week programme with menu plans. The average weight lost with the help of this book is 14kg in 8 weeks.
