From the global pioneer whose work inspired The 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet, a life-changing guide to reversing type 2 diabetes.
For centuries type 2 diabetes was regarded as an incurable, lifelong condition. Even worse, it seemed to be inevitably progressive – but no longer.
Professor Roy Taylor is one of the world’s leading experts on type 2, the man who in 2006 finally found the missing piece of the jigsaw explaining that it was actually a reversible condition. With his team of researchers at Newcastle University, he launched a series of studies leading to a remarkable, multi-million-dollar trial, which in 2019 confirmed that simple advice about diet could bring about lasting remission.
In this book, Taylor brings all the knowledge and experience of four decades of treating people with diabetes. He explains exactly what is happening in the body as type 2 diabetes develops and shows how you can live a full and healthy life beyond it.
‘Roy Taylor and his team at Newcastle University have not only cracked the mystery of what causes type 2 diabetes, the greatest health problem of our time, but shown the world how to get rid of it. This is a terrific book, which could help a huge number of people.’ Dr Michael Mosley, bestselling author of The Fast 800, The Clever Guts Diet and The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet
‘Professor Taylor’s remarkable tenacity in researching the concept that some people are able to put their type 2 diabetes into remission is changing how we think about and treat this pervasive condition.’ Elizabeth Robertson, Director of Research, Diabetes UK
‘This fine book contains good science, good writing and good advice in equal measure. It is both fascinating and useful for readers.’ Matt Ridley, author of The Evolution of Everything
‘When I met Roy in 2012, I had type 2 diabetes – and he showed me another way. Now my blood sugars are normal and my diabetes is a thing of the past.’ Dave Myers, Hairy Biker
‘Fascinating, informative and, in today’s world, important. For anyone with type 2 diabetes it’s a no-brainer; follow Roy’s roadmap and reverse it. And if you haven’t got type 2 diabetes – yet – follow Roy’s roadmap and avoid it.’ Jimmy Nail, actor and musician
Roy Taylor is Professor of Medicine and Metabolism at Newcastle University, and Director of the Magnetic Resonance Centre and Honorary Consultant Physician at Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. He has spent the last four decades working on the causes of diabetes, as well as treating patients in clinical practice. His work inspired Dr Michael Mosley’s bestselling book, The 8-Week Blood Sugar Diet.
