The Following Can Change Your Life – It Changed Mine
Quite a statement isn’t it? But one that is the honest truth and I am an example of that and I can say hand on heart I am now a completely different person to the one that was sat here on my sofa in January 2018. I am now going to help you and show you how to reverse type 2 diabetes fast as seen on ITV’s The Fast Fix Diabetes and also to tackle yourself as the whole package. It is no good just tackling one aspect and expect everything else to change automatically. You need to make other changes to become the best version of yourself.
How To Reverse Type 2 Diabetes Fast As Seen on ITV’s The Fast Fix Diabetes
I lost over 35lbs during The Fast Fix and no longer take Metformin. The results staggered me so much I had to share this with you and show you how to reverse type 2 diabetes fast as seen on ITV’s The Fast Fix Diabetes using a very low-calorie diet. In our case using Exante Diet Meal Replacements. I still use these products today.
When I found out I was pre-diabetic it didn’t mean a great deal to me. My mother, father and grandparents had type 2 diabetes so it wasn’t a word I’d not heard before. As far as I was concerned you get diagnosed with diabetes and get given a tablet to control it.
Obviously, you should also cut down on certain food groups and that was it. But did I? for a while maybe but started slipping back into bad habits – comfort eating does that to you.
I carried on for a few more months basically eating what I wanted and suddenly developed an outrageous thirst. It was nothing like I had experienced before and I was also waking up at night to visit the bathroom. Alarm bells started ringing because I knew that increased thirst was a symptom of diabetes along with going toilet during the night.
On top of that, I was getting one urine infection after another, the corners of my mouth kept cracking which was extremely painful and various thrust infections, blurred sight and tingling in my fingers.
Lack of Knowledge
I would like to say at this point in time that increased thirst was about all I knew about diabetes. Sadly, I had heard awful stories about people losing limbs and their sight nut ignorantly thought that was related to type 1 diabetes. How stupid was I?
I soon got a shock to the system when my HBAC1 results came back 87.9 which is way too high – dangerously high and then all of a sudden I was a full-on diabetic.
I was extremely shocked when I learnt how high my results were and as soon as I got home I did what everyone does – google the life out of it. The look on my doctors face said it all, it was something serious; a lot more serious than I realised.
Blood Sugar Testing
I found the whole subject completely confusing and all the advice etc was quite contradictory. However, I knew I had to educate myself so I thought I’d get myself a blood glucose test kit and religiously started testing my blood sugar.
Now, this was working for me because I was testing my blood sugar before and after meals and I was amazed at the readings I was getting. I actually lost a stone by myself by following weight watchers and monitoring my own blood sugar and was very pleased with myself.
However, I went to visit the GP (not my usual one) about something else. He then took it upon himself to quite literally tell me off for testing my own blood sugar and I shouldn’t have to do it because I am Type 2 and carried on giving me a lecture.
I walked out of the surgery with tears in my eyes because he made me feel so completely stupid and like a naughty child. The problem also was that it made me also think that type 2 diabetes can’t be that serious then. Thanks, Doc!
I left the GP surgery feeling confused, angry, stupid, a whole manner of things. So what did I do? Yep you guessed it I stopped testing my blood sugar which resulted in me stopping my diet, and my diabetes getting out of control again and my weight going up to the heaviest it has ever been even when I was pregnant.
I was 15st 5lb at my heaviest which is enormous considering I am only 5’3″. So yeah if I was lying on a beach I can guarantee that Greenpeace would certainly have tried to throw me back into the sea that’s how bad it was.
All Time Low
So at the Fast Fix Clinic, on 8 January 2018, I weighed in at an astonishing 15st 5lbs, that is 97.5 kgs and as I have just said considering my height is only 5’3″ (I mean come on I’m a bit of a Hobbit but without the hairy large feet!) that is quite scary. That means I was classed as very obese with a BMI of 38!
This means that if I lost 6st 8lb I would be in the middle of the healthy weight range. The middle, not the start: I had a serious problem and I didn’t know what to do. This was also confirmed when we had a weight displacement session and I found out that 51% of me was fat! More than half of me was just fat. I was disgusted with myself.
Fibromyalgia and Diabetes
On top of diabetes, I had my newly diagnosed fibromyalgia to contend with. anyone with this condition will know how hard it makes your life; you just exist there is lo living involved so you tend to end up eating rubbish, very little or no exercise. it’s just one vicious circle of pain, food, no exercise, pain and just keeps going on and on.
This I go into more detail in my book. I was living on painkillers not being able to move, walk the dog, play with my grandson it was a living hell. I was quickly turning into Jabba the Hut and couldn’t do anything about it. A far cry from the bubbly, mischievous full of fun Can Can and Burlesque Performer from several years ago. I didn’t recognise myself anymore and sadly I was a complete and utter mess!
What Happened Next?
What happened next was a bloody miracle as I managed to get accepted on a medical trial that was going to be filmed for ITV about putting type 2 diabetes into remission. I lived in a house with 4 complete strangers and together we did this; we took on the unknown put our trust in our Professors and the TV Crew and production team and the results were astonishing.. Seriously astonishing..
I go into a lot more detail in the book but we went on a very strict controlled diet of 800 calories a day. After 4 weeks we all went home and carried on with the strict diet on our own and with follow-ups with all the people involved. We did this for 8 weeks however, 2 of us including myself were advised to do another 8-12 weeks.
At week 8 my liver fat had shot down to 6.6% from 22.7%. I had more energy, my HBA1C although was 48.95 just in the diabetic scale with another 8 weeks I would be in the pre-diabetic scale with another 8 weeks I would be in the pre-diabetic scale; which will then lead to being officially in remission. Free from a life of misery, confusion, lack of interest, depression, constant pain and horrible side effects from all the medication.

Now, I know this isn’t an overnight thing but on the scale of things, 8 weeks out of your life is nothing especially when you get the results that you do and the positive impacts it has on your life. The science behind all this you will find in my book in “Publications“.
