I reversed my diabetes diagnosis just 4 months after joining Low Carb Leeds

I was diagnosed as a type 2 diabetic over fifteen years ago. Since then, it’s fair to say, my lifestyle has contributed to worsening HbA1C results and my being prescribed an increasing amount of diabetes medications.

At a diabetic review last year I received the shocking news that I was to be prescribed insulin as a way to control my escalating blood sugars, and that this was the last medication available to me.

After 15 years of ‘burying my head in the sand’ I had finally received the shock wake-up call I needed.  I declined the insulin and promised my practice nurse that I would change my ways!  I gave myself a good talking to and pledged to do something about it. But what?

Hero Recipe – Fat Head Pizza Dough

Is this the best low carb/keto recipe ever invented? At Low Carb Leeds we certainly think so!

Fat Head Pizza is legendary in the low carb world and this recipe has been tried and tested by many in our Low Carb Leeds community – comes top rated every time!

If you have adopted a low carb way of eating and are missing pizza (I know I did!) – this is the recipe for you! It is gluten and grain free, only just over 2g of carbs per slice and incredibly filling! Where before, I could polish off a whole regular wheat dough pizza, I can only manage 2 (occasionally 3) slices of this low carb version – meaning that there is always leftovers for the following day. Yay!

Let’s Start with Breakfast

At Low Carb Leeds we like to start by looking at what our members have for breakfast. If you can get your low carb brekkie sorted, chances are you’ll control your hunger and eat right for the remainder of the day.

Breakfast (break-fast) literally means the first meal taken after rising from sleep. Where once this was a warm cooked meal and we ‘went to work on an egg’, the great British breakfast has since been completely transformed by that American invention – cereal. Ready-to-eat breakfast cereal is the original fast food, but is it healthy? …….Read More
