Everywhere we look in the world today – whether it be on media billboards or in the display counters of supermarkets and big brand coffee shops – we are encouraged to treat ourselves to foods and drinks that are raising our blood sugar levels to dangerously high levels.

The result has been a doubling in the number of type 2 diabetics over the last few decades and these numbers are expected to double again. Along with the explosion in diabetes we have seen a surge in those with the potentially damaging condition, pre-diabetes. Even moderately elevated blood sugar levels lead to premature ageing and can trigger a range of life-threatening diseases, including cancer, heart disease and dementia. It is the greatest global epidemic of the 21st century.

Scientists in the UK have recently made a discovery with revolutionary implications. They have not only identified an important cause of type-2 diabetes – accumulation of fat in the liver and the pancreas – but have demonstrated in medical trials that you can not only prevent but also reverse type 2 diabetes.

In this book, Dr Michael Mosley, the medical journalist who alerted the world to the benefits of intermittent fasting (and who is himself a former diabetic), draws on the work of Professor Roy Taylor – one of the UK’s foremost diabetes experts – to present a ground breaking new diet that will show you how to defuse the blood sugar time-bomb before it explodes in your life by offering a simple, flexible 8-week diet plan, with quick, easy recipes and menus, plus a special high/low carb food monitor (Everything you need to know about sugar…) with dietary dos and don’ts.
