The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan has been proven to be effective in reversing Type-2 Diabetes yet again, this time, showing the effects can last for at least five years! In 2018, the DiRECT trial showed that nearly half of the participants (46%) were able to reverse their condition through using products supplied for the trial by The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan and based upon our programme.

Recently, the five-year results of DiRECT found that almost a quarter (23%) of the participants who were in remission from Type-2 Diabetes after two years, remained in remission five years later. This is a remarkable achievement, particularly when compared to the traditional diabetes treatment, which only helped 4% of the dieters reverse their condition.

Furthermore, those who succeeded in reversing their Type-2 Diabetes lost nearly double the weight of those who received standard care from a dietitian or nurse (8.9kg versus 4.6kg). The five-year results also showed that the 23% who remained in remission had lower blood pressure and halved their risk of serious health issues.

In the original trial, The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan provided test group dieters with food products such as soups, shakes, meals, bars and snacks, and they received one-to-one support. This personal support and motivation was cited as a significant factor in the participants' initial weight loss success, making it a key USP of the brand versus alternative TDR (Total Diet Replacement) weight loss programs.

Obesity is known to be the leading cause (80-85%) of those at risk of developing Type-2 Diabetes, and with more pressure on the NHS than ever before, alternative solutions are needed now. This is one of four studies showing that The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan can reverse Type-2 Diabetes and pre-diabetes not only clinically proves the effectiveness of being on Plan but also reinforces the ground-breaking capabilities of our TDR programme over other alternatives.

Mark Gilbert, Commercial Nutritionist at The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan, said that The 1:1 Diet is proud that the NHS is using the lessons learned from scientific studies using their diet program to help some of the estimated five million Type-2 Diabetics in the UK. The 1:1 Diet has been helping millions of people lose weight for nearly forty years by providing the right nutritionally balanced products, an easy plan, and one-to-one support from trained diet consultants.

The findings of the DiRECT trial highlight the effectiveness of The 1:1 Diet by Cambridge Weight Plan in reversing Type-2 Diabetes and the importance of personalised support in achieving long-term results. With more and more people struggling with obesity and Type-2 Diabetes, this program provides an alternative solution that could help millions of people lead healthier lives.
