New book – The Inspired Diabetic by Lyndon Wissart – out 24th January 2017

The Inspired DiabeticLyndon Wissart will be releasing his first book, The Inspired Diabetic, on Tuesday 24th January 2017.

In The Inspired Diabetic, professional chef Lyndon shares the recipe that cured his type 2 diabetes in 105 days, naturally without medication!

When Lyndon was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, he was determined that this would not be a life sentence. The thought of spending the rest of his life on medication with a long list of foods he couldn’t eat, made him think that there must be an alternative.

If it was food that caused the problem in the first place, then surely changing his diet could undo the damage. With his 30 years’ professional knowledge of food, he set about researching what could make a difference. By putting into practice what he learnt, he successfully managed to completely cure himself in just 105 days. In his new book, he shares his journey and shows how anyone can do the same if they have the knowledge and determination.

“Working in kitchens all day,” says Lyndon, “I was surrounded with all sorts of tempting foods. My weakness was desserts and, of course, I had to try them to make sure they were alright! When I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my blood glucose reading was nearly off the scale at 15.9 and I was experiencing all sorts of unpleasant complications. I didn’t want this to turn into a life sentence and I certainly didn’t want to spend my life on medication so I put to use all the knowledge I have gained about food to see what I could do to make a difference. What I achieved amazed me,and my dietitian and doctors!”

Lyndon has shared his journey from diagnosis to cured in 105 days in his book. “I know how devastating a diagnosis can be but if you think of it as an opportunity, then you are in the right mindset to do something about it. I have proved that with a sensible fitness regime and an intelligent diet based on good information, you too can achieve what I have done.”

Lyndon’s book is being launch on 24th January at 6pm in the Institute of Directors at 119 Pall Mall, London. To attend the event, please register here: First time visitors are free.

The Inspired Diabetic is 174 pages long, costs £14.99, and is printed in full colour. It is available to buy from Amazon, all good book shops, and the Filament bookshop.
