‘Two years ago I turned 50, weighed 22 stone and was heavily medicated for type 2 diabetes. I thought it would be all downhill from there. By radically changing my nutrition, cutting out sugar, and taking up exercise, I’ve changed my life and reversed my diabetes. I hope my story will inspire others to regain their health and happiness and discover the new lease of life I’m experiencing.’

Tom Watson began to put on weight in his early twenties, having developed an appetite for fast food and cheap beer while studying at the University of Hull. As time progressed – and his penchant for anything sweet, fatty or fizzy persisted – he found himself adjusting his belt, loosening his collar and upsizing his wardrobe to XXL. He continued to pile on the pounds when he entered the world of politics as MP for West Bromwich East (despite short-lived flirtations with fad diets and fitness classes). By December 2014, his bathroom scales had tipped to 22 stone. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in late 2015, he decided to take control of his diet and exercise. He started to feel better quickly and within a short time his long-term blood sugar levels were within normal range. By July 2018, he came off medication.

He did this in a considered way,…

Inspiring, informative and passionate ! For the very first time (at age 59) I have been impressed with a politician!

I found your book easy to read, understand and inspiring! Thankyou for sharing your story. I have over the last 3 months also been diagnosed with T2D and now, 3 months later have got all my blood glucose and other test scores back to normal and so far have lost 2 stone…

Life Changing I didn’t expect to read a life experience that mirrored my own in so many ways. Some of the low points of struggling with and being in denial brought me to tears when thinking of my own kids and the real possibility of never knowing my grandchildren.Now into fourth day of the rest of my life and feeling good.Can’t recommend this highly enough.Thanks Tom.
