Hausamsee I have seen the programme thanks - Have a look at the Newcastle diet - I did four weeks of it earlier in the year and had four weeks of business trips thereafter, it did pull my blood sugar down to normal levels for a bit. I will give it another go after Christmas http://www.ncl.ac.uk/magres/research...s/reversal.htm
That is very useful, I will have good read. Thanks...

Re: Can a doctor prescribe exercise!

I suggest getting some sort of virtual training buddy that logs your workouts. The visual progress (or lack of) can be very motivating. Here is a short list.

http://www.bluecoatsports.co.uk/blog...your-hands-on/

The first one mentioned, Fitbit, has it's own thread on our forum that is very recent (less than a week old).

Also, you can find online training buddies or coaches to help keep you motivated. I haven't tried them, but any motivation can help.

And put a photo of yourself in a swimsuit on your fridge. That can be a great winter motivator not to visit the kitchen too often

any motivation can help.
I agree wholeheartedly with 'any motivation'. Find what might help you. It is not necessarily the same thing as that which works for others.
I almost always measure my distances, speed, elevation difference, heart-rate etc. on a Garmin... It all goes into an internet site which makes lovely lists but I also put it all into an EXCEL table. It is truly idiotic as I rarely look at the individual bits again and can hardly ever remember any of the figures, but the very THOUGHT of recording it afterwards seems to help.
(Same effect as making TO DO lists. Crossing out things already done is, for me, satisfying in itself.)
Having a buddy who also finds it difficult to get going is a help. The thought of being jollied along by a guy who is super fit and talks of 'just a quick xxx km run each day before breakfast, 3x at the gym, each followed by an easy three km swim' can be total depressing.

More power to your arm.

Hi telandy, how have you been doing in the last month? I hope your doctor offered support and you're on the road to a healthy and happy '16. Keep us updated on your progress. Hope you are well.

Re: Can a doctor prescribe exercise!

I went to the doctors this week and started the exercise plan which is two one hour sessions in the gym at the surgery per week. I am feeling more confifdent and I have started a blog to motivate me and to see how far I hopefully will have come as the year progresses. The key goal is to reverse the type 2 diabetes which I have. The blog can be found at http://365daychallenge.blog.com

For some reason I can't access your blog...my update is that I am losing about 1kg per week since December. I am fairly shocked as to the extent sacrifices must be made and one 14 day diet (the first of the really serious ones) contained about 11,000 calories! This book really helped too, I feel very energetic these days and 6kg's lighter (the goal is 20kg).

Well done for losing the weight, I hope that your blood sugar has dropped if you are a diabetic.
I need to update the blog, unfortunately at the beginning of the month our whole family got the flu so everything slid a bit, but I am now back on track. There is a new book out regarding reversing type2 diabetes by Michael Mosely http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-8-Week-B.../dp/1780722400 he has been on british TV alot recently.

Re: Can a doctor prescribe exercise!

Just thought I'd come back to reassure you that yes, type 2 diabetes can be reversed. I've just done it.

The prescription:

Exercise every day, between 60 and 90 minutes. It doesn't have to be done in one go - I found that deliberately missing the bus to and from the station and going for a brisk walk every possible lunchtime (2 - 3 times a week) did the trick. Also, ignoring the weather and going out anyway. I tried topping up on the exercise bike at home, but it's boring and cold in the gym at the moment, so I just walk more instead.

Low carb intake: no alcohol (I'm teetotal anyway), no sweets, no potatoes, rice, bread, anything like that. Fill up with vegetables and fruit. After a while your hunger cravings pass, and I'm finding it difficult to eat enough to stave off ketosis these days. That, of course, is great for fat burning, but not so popular with family and friends, iykwim.

100% cocoa chocolate: bitter as buggery at first, but I've got quite the taste for it now. I tried a couple of Lindor balls to celebrate the diabetes reversal at the weekend, and couldn't get the nasty sugary aftertaste out of my mouth, so there'll be no more of that rubbish, thank you very much. Also, raw cocoa beans are fantastic for a chocolate fix, although possibly not to everyone's taste.

Did I mention the exercise? Yeah, lots of it. Every day, whether it's snowing or raining or whatever. Just get out there.

So, since the end of November: 10% of body weight has gone, blood sugar back to normal, cholesterol "too low" (not sure what that means, but the doctor looked pleased), blood pressure down, heart rate down, down a trouser size, feeling very sprightly, also a bit smug.

I've still some way to go to reach my target weight, but the first - and most important - goal has been reached, and that's the main thing.

So it can be done, and you can do it.

Good luck! Good motivation!

Re: Can a doctor prescribe exercise!

Bravo- and welcome back x

btw any chocolate over 70% made with real cocoa butter and not palm oil is fine in small amounts.

(the metling point of real cocoa butter is lower than body heat- whereas palm oil is higher- the second sticks to arteries, the second does not).

Fantastic Dougal's Breakfast well done. I am back in the groove but have a lot of personal and work stress at the moment, weight is falling off but blood sugar is still too high. I am being honest with you, i am still not doing enough exercise, working from home with the weather is just an excuse!! Onwards and upwards, like you loads of veg, hardly any carbs. I am drinking loads of water.

Re: Can a doctor prescribe exercise!

If all else fails, get a dog. Then you have to walk every day regardless of weather.

After I retired I took over the dog walking then went down a trouser size and my blood sugar bounces around but is mostly in good territory, cholesterol also OK.

No special diet and I have no improvement in high blood pressure.
