You asked for feedback regarding the 8day diet – so here it is .
1 I bought the book on Sunday as I saw it on the supermarket shelves and had heard off
Professor Taylor’s work with diabetics. Couldn’t put it down and started a new way of
eating on Monday. The science quoted makes sense and many of the quotes regarding doctors so true.
2 However there are several points I would like to raise mainly regarding the plan itself.
I feel that there is too much emphasis placed on eggs. There are some people me
Included who cannot eat eggs ( I throw up). How can they be replaced with a protein
that has a similar number of calories? In other words what can I replace them with?
3 As a coeliac I have both almond and coconut flours in my store cupboard and also
quite a few others namely: polenta, chestnut,buckwheat, gram flour, oat flour, millet
Sorghum. I like baking and the concomitant eating maybe that’s why I’m diabetic.
Which of these can I safely use as carb free and which should I jettison?
4 Finally you were talking about personal fat levels. I am 5’1″ and weigh 133.2lbs. My
fancy scales tell me that my fat level is 34.2% which quite frankly horrified me.
However, this would indicate that I need to lose that percentage of weight is around
44lbs, which surely would make me slightly too skinny?
5 Finally, my blood pressure has come down slightly to something over 68 I am on
Ramipril and panicked. Phoned diabetic nurse regarding coming off the medication
And was told not to worry. I will keeps an eye on this but can you give me any
Guidelines regarding readings.
Keep up the good work, we need someone like you to look after the health of the country and challenge the accepted wisdom which can so often be wrong.
