Type 2 diabetes and diet What’s the link?

There is no clear diet for diabetes, but we’ve pulled together what we know about how The 1:1 Diet can help.

Type 2 diabetes (the most common form) is a disease caused by a sedentary lifestyle and unhealthy diet. The vast majority of diabetics are overweight or obese because the same lifestyle that causes one, causes the other. What this means of course, is that for most people, if you treat obesity with weight loss, you improve diabetes.

So, where does The 1:1 Diet fit in?

Well, the symptoms of type 2 diabetes can be lessened or even reversed, which has been demonstrated in several studies using the products we make and based on our Plan. You won’t find a more research-proven diet than The 1:1 Diet, just take a look:

More recently, there has been more research that not only backs this up but actually shows an even stronger effect. 61% of subjects in a study published in The Lancet medical journal in 2020 were able to put their diabetes into remission. In doing so, they also lost an average of nearly two stone.

There's heaps of research available on our Supported by research webpage.

What’s brilliant about The 1:1 Diet is alongside the Plan, you’ll get personal support from your very own diet Consultant.
