"I've never been overweight, then I was told I was at risk of type 2 diabetes"

Published on 9th Jun, 2022

In 1999 Anne Pollock learned that she had impaired glucose tolerance. Over the past year she discovered that it was becoming worse.

“I thought I followed a healthy diet, so I was surprised to be told I could be at risk of type 2 diabetes. I’ve never been overweight, I don’t eat chocolate, cake or biscuits. I follow a Mediterranean diet primarily, although I did eat bread and potatoes.”

Anne was recommended the Low Carb Program by a colleague. As a trained clinical biochemist, she had knowledge of the science, but it was the Program that helped her to make the change.

“I found it helpful and easy to follow. Watching the videos week by week I could pace myself and I still found [low carb] reassuring to read about.”

Anne swapped rice and potatoes for low carb vegetables and salads. She enjoys meals such as Greek yoghurt and fruit for breakfast and homemade fish cakes for dinner.

“My motivation is that I don’t want type 2 diabetes. I feel much better now, I now weigh 54kg (8st 7lbs), my border collie pulls me off my feet!”
