Downsizing: How I Lost 8 Stone, Reversed My Diabetes and Regained My Health by Tom Watson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As a person who needs to loose more weight and diabetic 2 mine could be controlled by eating, or rather, what I eat so I thought I’d take a look at this book.
Not much into Politics so didn’t know who this person was, so, not the reason I wanted to read it.
It’s informative as per most books like this.
As all diabetics are told......eat less carbs as carbs turn into sugar which causes us problems.
Less sugar in general.
Tom went on a low carb high fat sort of regime. I think he mentioned Keto as one one of the successful.
I’m in no doubt and awe that he’s lost so much weight which is astounding and I praise him for that. It’s the most difficult things to do, loose weight, then.......keep it off!
There’s no easy way, there’s no magic wand.
Being in his position I’d love for him to rally for manufacturers to less the sugar content in food.
To lobby for better healthier foods. We are getting bigger as a nation, I’m one of them. We sit more too as we e “machines” that do housework, chores, work and let’s not not forget, online shopping!
We don’t need to move much!
He gave an honest and open account of his life which I can relate to in part.
Would I recommend this book?
Yes, I think I would as it’s got some really good advice and let’s face it.....
He’s lost a half of his body weight. He’s reversed diabetes in his life so far.
It’s no easy fete that! I admire him.
