    Just finished. What a man! What a waste! I struggle with thinking about his last few hours and minutes, and thinking how preventable it all was. Even at the end he was so tantalisingly near potential help. But then on the other hand there is so much we don’t understand, and perhaps it was his time to go wherever he was and whatever he’d been doing …

    We’ll never know. RIP Michael. Thank you for all you taught us, and also for bringing this group of lovely people together. We started as strangers but have become friends.

    I’m currently having to update my computer to run the vpn and BBC iPlayer and it is taking sooo long. So I won’t be watching simulanteously, but will watch it from the beginning once I’ve managed the technology.

    Hello everyone
    I too will be watching the Michael Mosely tribute this evening. It’s still very difficult to comprehend the unfortunate turn of events . Tragic beyond words.

    Hi everyone. Just to say looking forward to your virtual company tonight. It seems the programme is only 30 minutes long but I will relish each one, and will be thinking of you all with fondness.
    Candle and red wine at the ready! X

  • Hi all, well done Margaret on losing most of the holiday weight. Yes, a lot of it is fluid but you still have to put in the effort to get rid of it. Fortunately, for myself, I know this diet never lets me down.

    I had a really bad hypo last night. Just sat watching TV and the picture started jumping around and going in and out of focus then I tried to stand up and my legs were like jelly. Hubby brought my testing kit over and it was 3.5 which is one of the lowest ever. I was probably just about to go unconscious but I had a Werthers Original (not sugar free) which I keep in. Did nothing, had another, again not much improvement up to 45. Hubby made me a cheese sandwich, then I had a chocolate and then a glass of juice. Finally I had an emergency glucose sachet which maybe I should have used first. It took me 2 hours to get my BG up to 79. He kept saying ‘am I going to have to get you to hospital’ and getting really cross with me but I know it is just fear on his part. There should have been nothing to cause it but when I think about it, that half a baguette could have given me sugar rush and then I had a swim for 30 mins which could have coincided with a sugar drop (caused by the bread), but then I had a good meal of chicken breast stuffed with mozzerella and wrapped in parma ham with a pepper and tomato sauce and broccoli. Often there is no accounting for it but I will reduce my insulin yet again.

    Anyway, as a consequence my weight is up 1kg with all the sugar. It will go. I wont be swimming for a few days as the forecast is for rain.

    Hope you all have a good weekend.

  • Verano, I think as most of us find, that ‘treat’ doesn’t have quite the same appeal when you are used to low carb. This was not even a real baguette but one of those part baked from the freezer shop. Trying to clear out my freezer for the family coming over when I will be stocking with burgers, pizzas and fish fingers (on offer this week) 🙂

    Daughter is vegan and I will be trying to eat what she eats as we cook together. Then there are 4 kids with picky tastes. Really looking forward to it.

    Welcome Ruby Frances and Happy1Qld lovely to have you on board with your positives.

    Sunny sounds like things are really moving along. Hopefully you will soon be in!

    Not much for me to report today….

    🌶️🧄🫛 Just had a Thai meal for the first time in an age. Had som tam salad and chicken satay. Hadn’t realised the satay was fried in a coating but managed to get rid of some. Anyway it was a lovely change.

    🛫🏨🏖️Have booked a trip to go and see our son and family in Portugal at the beginning of July so really looking forward to that.

    💻📖✒️ Just had a really quiet ‘catching up’ day today which was lovely. Tomorrow will be back to the ironing and preparing for our trip.

    If you had any positive today please post.

  • Welcome back Wendy! Sounds like you had a very busy time and have another one soon to come … great, that’s what life’s all about.

    S-g glad you enjoyed the baguette that’s life, there for the living and not for deprivation every step of the way.

    Well second week home for me and still motivated even more so because we’ve booked a trip to Portugal to see our son and family in three weeks. Hoping for 2lb a week. Will do my best.

    Hope everyone is well.

  • Hi Wendy, good to see you back posting although it sounds as though you are going to be pretty busy again soon.

    My weight is just the same as last reported but not in any hurry and still keeping to plan, although I did have a quarter of a baguette at lunch BECAUSE I FELT LIKE IT 🙂 What better reason. But did my glucose goddess trick and ate lettuce and cucumber and avocado first to line my stomach.

    Went out yesterday and bought a mascerator toilet for the bathroom but have to get rid of the double sink unit to make space so have bought a sleek modern but in an old fashioned style single unit set and tall cupboard for the towels. The plumber has already been to give us a quote and says it is an easy job. Very happy with his quote which arrived about an hour after his visit. I wanted a second quote from our usual macon (builder etc) who does plumbing but waiting for hubby to make contact – it may take some time 🙂 I find it so easy to just pick up the phone, know what I want to say and worry about what I don’t understand when the time comes. Just got stuck when he asked about disposing of the old units but soon worked it out and he said he would get rid of it and sinks. I have tried selling things on Facebook but people tend to waste your time and for the sake of 30 or 40 euros we would get for them I’d rather not have the hassle.

    Hope you are all sticking with us and feeling better about things. Life is full of ups and downs and we have to make the most of the good things or even the mundane. Have a good rest of the week / weekend.

    Hi there,
    Happy1Qld, you made me smile. Im assuming it is the fact hubby is improving after Covid rather than him having it. I guess from your name you are in Queensland also the right time of year (your winter).

    My positives
    At last I got hubby to come with me to buy a new bathroom cabinet – the bit with the sink in. We have a double but couldnt fit space for a mascerator toilet installing. So we have bought a single sink unit. Something sleek and modern. We are never in the bathroom at the same time anyway.
    I phone a plumber for a quote for fitting said toilet and cabinet, he arrived after 30 minutes and given us a fantastic quote.
    Going for a swim in a few minutes, when hubby has stopped strimming and cleared the pool of the crap he has stirred up.

    Have a good week / weekend.

    I have been deeply saddened by the loss of Dr. Mosley, and the tragic circumstances surrounding his last hours and death. Although I never met him, I felt, like many others, that I knew him.
    I first came across him with his program on the science of exercise where he explored HIIT. It made an enormous amount of sense and explained why the one period of my life where I was able to lose weight and get healthier was as a result of HIIT.
    Then came fasting and the 5:2 diet. I never thought I would be able to fast due to reactive hypoglycemia. This and the BSD showed me that I am able to fast and that there was an alternative to what the dieticians had been telling me for years that was increasingly making me gain weight and become less healthy.
    I am so grateful for Dr. Mosley and his contributions to helping people understand the science of health and how they can help themselves. I hope to honor his memory by continuing on my journey to being healthy.
    Condolences to Clare and family and to all the work colleagues and friends who really did know him.

    Three good things that have happened to me:

    1. I figured out how to keep myself upright when I am sleeping but still completely relaxed. This is greatly decreased my sleep apnea symptoms. Sleep apnea increases cortisol and makes it more difficult to diet. All the sugar from your blood is sucked away as fat almost immediately when your cortisol levels are high. Your brain then screams at you to eat because it needs easily mobilized sugar which fat is not.

    2. Weather is beautiful here in the Pacific northwest. It’s sunny but not too hot with a cool gentle breeze. All the spring flowers are blooming and everything looks so bright and colorful.

    3. I am going to fill four bags of books today to give to the library for their sale.
    I hope everyone has a wonderful day.

    V, thank you for keeping this thread near the top of the list and huge well done to you on ditching that ‘extra luggage’ so quickly.
    I’m sure I can find a positive or two, so here goes …
    🙂🙃 kitchen install and tiling in villa completed …. can hardly believe it!
    👏🥳 DD has had a really good job offer and her base will be in walking distance. So although there will be travelling required, her day to day commute will be drastically slashed, which is a huge bonus.
    🚘💕 pleasant day running errands with OH.

    That will do for me today. Hope others will join us and post their positives here too.

    Just popping in to say hello and to keep this thread alive.

    🎉🎉 Celebrating that my ‘cruise extra luggage’ has been discarded plus a little more.
    🧺🧺 Washing completely up to date but still some ironing to do. I actually like ironing I just love to see those freshly ironed piles!
    🍅🌽🥬 Lots of lovely salads happening here. Weather not brilliant but not dire enough to make salad a no-no.

    Hope you’re weather, in which ever part of the world you are in, is good but not too hot.
    If you have just one positive please post.

  • Hi everyone .I have been back from Greece for a few days but needing a bit of time to adjust and also grieve for the tragic loss we all feel . Greece was such a magical time,the wedding, the stunning location, the huge , joyful family gathering , meeting my grandson again, it was just perfect .So sad that Greece was also the scene of such tragedy and I didn’t feel I could even listen to the podcasts or check the Instagram posts as it felt too painful.
    I have learned so much from Michael and the wealth of knowledge I gained from him was the starting point, moving on to reading about keto, fasting etc and I am so much healthier as a result . I will be forever grateful .

    I have gained a couple of kilos , mainly due to consumption of grains and legumes I think as my sister and niece are veggie and vegan.Lots of Greek salads but also the occasional spanakopita which seems to be standard fast food .I steered clear of the souvlaki though . It was generally pretty healthy fare but more carb heavy than I would choose .That’s ok . I also found Greek Mountain Tea on the market which is a delicate , floral infusion a bit like camomile with many apparent health benefits .

    I have a bit of a break now before we go to Ile de Ré for a few days at the end of the month before the school holidays begin ! Then my family have booked to come here in August so I will be busy as there are likely to be 20 plus of us ! My son and partner are coming from Australia for a month to meet the French side of the family so I can look forward to more chuckles and cuddles !

    I am back to my yoga and aquagym sessions and the farm shop close by is well stocked with luscious salds, courgettes, green beans , parsley and basil to enjoy with the first tomatoes : my simple pleasures .

    I hope everyone is coping and doing their best to stay on track . I have been catching up on the thread and reading about SG’s lost necklace .I can commiserate as at one point in Greece I thought I had lost my pouch containing all my earrings. Now I must stress that none of these have any value but they are chosen to match my outfits…It’ s a weird thing of mine ! Anyway I was resigned to them being left /lost amongst all the family luggage we carted everywhere on taxi boats and I accepted that someone else may get some joy from them….but they turned up ,in a place I thought I had already searched !

    We also brought back 2 litres of a special olive oil my brother in law recommended to us , just for seasoning and not for cooking . Greek oregano too .

    So I am back folks, back to a surprisingly cool June in France but looking forward to happy summer days .Thanks SG for setting up the new thread and for keeping everyone motivated and inspired .Take care everyone

    I have just returned from a wonderful family gathering in Greece, a time of great joy and happiness and yet also the scene of such a shocking , tragic event on the island of Symi.I too was desperately hoping for a positive outcome and felt immense sadness at the loss of such an inspirational man .My journey is similar to many on the forum, discovering the 5.2 programme and then the Fast 800 which completely changed my way of eating after years of yo yo dieting , trying everything to lose weight . Michael’s sound advice linked to his own experience was a total game-changer and enabled me to lose 30 kilos in 2019 .

    Michael’s legacy will live on and I hope this will be a comfort to his wife and family as they readjust to life without such a kind, personable man. Our experience is testimony to his will and drive to make our lives better and healthier and he will never be forgotten .

  • Thanks S-G, you’ve said it just right…..I had re-started with determination my diet a week ago, just before news that MM was missing…..and this news certainly highlighted in my mind just how important his teachings are and reminded me how much they have done for me previously (and when I say restarted the ‘diet’ I mean the low cal BSD type of phase…..when I get to maintenance, I switch back to calling it a WOE, and even when I’ve not been fully following the plan, I have still kept elements of it, and my blood sugars have never returned to my pre-diabetic levels of 2020 before doing BSD the 1st time)…..anyhow, I’ve been really good and I’ve lost 6 lbs, going through what I call the ‘fat crying’ phase where all the water comes out😅…..I expect I didn’t make that up, may well have heard it somewhere on here, or maybe a joke? Anyhow, I’m feeling good, some of my fitbit stats are already improving, like decreased HR etc…..and less hungry/ reduced cravings etc….just got to keep it up now- and feeling like I am supporting keeping Michael’s legacy going is also an extra driver….he’s helping people even after death. What a man. I’m also trying to book a summer hol to France and it would be INCREDIBLY HELPFUL if I can get into any of my pairs of shorts and also a swimsuit!!
    Much love and hugs in solidarity

  • Yes heartfelt thanks to Michael Mosley to all he did teaching us all how to take better control of our own health & I do hope this site continues as an ongoing positive memorial to him.
    I am going to reread the BSD book & return to sticking much more closely to his guidance as my personal tribute to him. I have of late, apart from on the cruise, been rather casually varying my calorie intake although trying to stay low carb. At the moment I have been spending lots of pennies including through the night which is irritating & now have a cough, sore throat & am sneezing . It’s not Covid because I test negative but my husband is still testing positive but feels fine. I expect that I’m just losing carb fluid & will be pleased when my body gets back to normal! I hope to see weight loss on Saturday & fasted on Monday. My right knee is very sore at the moment & I’m not easily walking, hobbling describes it best so I’m not very cheerful at the moment. I have ironing & bed linen to wash so keeping busy whilst isolating at home. I have bought myself a new dress which is slightly snug so I have ordered the next size to try before returning it because I do hope that I will be slimmer by the end of July.
    Well done everyone having lost your regained holiday weight 👏👏⭐️
    I’m back to recording what I’m eating & planning meals from my many Michael Mosleys cookery books.
    Margaret xx

  • Well done s-g! I’m sure you’ll manage 2kg in the next 6 weeks. I agree with your sentiments and yes we should carry on following his teachings.

    Well my first week home has been quite astonishing. I’ve been ‘weighing and recording’ for the first time in years and have lost my 4.4lb cruise gain plus a further 1.4lbs! I’m really astonished. Obviously I don’t expect this to happen again but I think I know what I have to do … ‘weigh and record’ … rather than ‘guesstimate’ !

    Have a good week.

    Great idea about watching the program together. I was initially a bit upset that I wouldn’t be able to see it here, but it will play on BBC iPlayer, and if I download a free vpn, it might just work. It will be sandwiched in between a gp appointment to discuss my biopsy results and my next counselling appointment.
    Hope everyone is keeping well.

    Dear Michael

    I never had the chance to meet you but you have been a constant source of inspiration in my life for over 10 years now. I will always be grateful for all I have learned from you.

    I started following the 5:2 diet after your Horizon programme Eat, Fast and Live Longer in 2012/2013 and started to see a bit of a difference. I then gave the Blood Sugar Diet a go in early 2017 and, to my amazement, I managed to stick to it and it worked! I lost a couple of stone pretty quickly then several more pounds over the course of the next few months. I have kept most of the weight off since then and whenever I’ve needed fresh inspiration, your books and TV programmes have helped me to refocus. Your warmth, energy and “can do” approach – coupled with your wealth of wisdom and common sense – always helped me to achieved results.

    I can’t believe you are no longer with us, but know that your positivity, adventurous spirit, and wisdom will live on in the thousands of people whose lives you have transformed.

    Sending love and condolences to Clare and the rest of your family. I only hope that it is of some comfort that so many share their loss and grief, and are wishing them strength and peace at this difficult time.

    Hi YOWZER yes I’m the same. Keep just wishing that someone had spotted him or something. But I guess we’ll never know exactly what happened in those final minutes and, even if help had arrived, it still may not have been possible to save him. It’s so sad, I keep remembering what’s happened and almost have to pinch myself to check I’m not imagining it 😢

    Lovely idea to light a candle on Friday. I’ll do that, and raise a glass too. I’m sure he wouldn’t mind on this occasion!

    Lots of love xx

    Thanks DCT,wow they got that programme together fast!
    Maybe we should all watch together? As many of us as can. I’ll be watching and will light a candle for him and his family,what a terrible shock for them,its bad enough for us. When someone is so full of life and well being,you really dont expect bad news. I cant stop thinking about how close he was to help. Maybe that saying about if its your time to go,its your time to go,i dk xxx

    Ah I see there is now a thread specifically for messages of condolence which is a wonderful idea. Who knows, perhaps you influenced that JGWEN ❤️

    Also to say that in the UK there is a special commemoration programme on the BBC this Friday at 20:00 BST. I will certainly be watching and know that many of you will be too.

    Hope everyone is doing ok X

    I came across Dr Mosley’s work in 2017. I had piled on weight after 6 months of inactivity from a broken ankle followed by more than years of stabbing pains in my leg if I tried to walk on uneven ground or for long distances. Private physiotherapy eased the pain, but counting calories didn’t touch the kg’s of blubber.

    Dr Mosley’s book promising rapid weight loss from 8 weeks of following his plan was given to me by a friend. it was the starting step for me to the road to a full life. The first step in the ladder of years of reading research articles, the work of scientists such as Dr Bikman and fasting experts such as Dr Fung and helping me to not only help my own body heal from Long Covid, but also have the knowledge to help those who were new to the idea of counting carbs not calories.

    I am very sorry for the loss to his family, friends and colleagues. But I am also so thankful that he lived his life like a large boulder thrown into a lake, the ripples from his common sense advice will continue to spread out helping people for decades to come.

  • Hi everyone, I think we need to give our thanks to Michael and show how much he meant to us by continuing to follow his teachings. One consolation is that his time on earth gave hope and health to so many people and he did so much good. This is carrying on in this thread and on this site.

    My visit to my doctor today was successful. He was happy with the small rise in BG especially when I said I had been on a cruise and even more surprised that my weight is exactly the same as at my last visit. So I have reached my 4lb goal which was my cruise weight gain. So starting from that base I am looking forward to having family visit in 6 and half weeks and have set myself a target of losing 2kgs. I hope this is easily achieveable as the pool is just about ready and I have been in once before the rain came back and dropped the temperature back down. Another few days of sunshine and I will be back in.

    My daughter and her husband did the Fast800 when it was on the TV and I think it was something like Lose a Stone in 21 days. They managed to do it for their wedding but have slackened off. On reading the sad news they have decided to do it again as a healthy thank you to Michael. We all have different ways of dealing with sadness or with finding motivation and I hope they manage. They are doing a 6 week plan before coming here at the end of July.

    How are you all doing, hope you are feeling renewed motivation. Have a good week.

    Rest in Peace Dr Mosley.
    Such tragic news which has upset me immensely. When I read your blood sugar diet book in 2017 it changed my life. Thank you for educating us over the years in such a kind and delightful manner. I have been a part of this forum since my BSD journey started and made so many friends along the way. Your advice and this forum of friends has been a huge part of my success.
    My sincere condolences to your wife Claire and to your children, family and to all your friends.
    Thank you for everything you taught us.

    RIP Dr. Mosely.

    I found your book at a time when I had lost the belief that I would ever be able to control my weight. Your book inspired me to try again and nine years later I am still a healthy weight and free of sugar addiction. It was literally a life-changer for me and I thank you for your efforts and dedication in spreading the ideas and research behind this way of eating. Your legacy lives on in all the people you helped.

    It has been said that all things pass into mystery and so it is now with you.

    Wishing your family strength — a very shocking event. They can take great comfort in knowing how many people benefitted from your life and work.

    Michael Mosley has made such a huge difference to my eating, lifestyle, health and confidence- my pre-diabetes has gone and I know how to lose and maintain weight loss and feel so much better when I stick to this WOE……I love his books, and I recommend his teachings to lots of other people…..I am so saddened by his untimely death, and that we won’t learn more from him, he who had so much to give and was so motivating. Finally, my thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    Michael’s legacy will live on in all of us he helped with health and weight issues …. his approach to eating well and properly has had an emense impacted on those if us who have followed it.

    Really devastating news.
    Obviously a very sad loss for his family and friends but also for so many people from many different walks of life.

    I first came across Dr Michael Mosley in 2016 when I ventured upon his book the “Blood Sugar Diet”. At that time I was on the highest dose of metformin and threatened with an extra ‘drug’. Within 6 months of following the ‘Blood Sugar Diet’ I was drug free and have remained so for almost the last 8 years.
    I for one am part of his legacy. I will be forever grateful to him for showing me the way to control/reverse my T2.

    My sincere condolences go to Claire , their children and friends and family.

    A truly good man may he Rest in Peace in the knowledge that he helped so many people to lengthen their lives whilst his was cut short so tragically.
    His legacy will live on

    What a sad and worrying time it has been,first hoping and praying for good news,then hearing the sad reality of what happened.
    Hard to believe that such a well loved figure is no longer with us,he has been part of our lives for a long time. For me,the last eleven years – first with the 5:2 plan,and later with the low carb way of eating,helping me make healthy changes in a new and better way than the 1000 calories/ Slimming World/ Weightwatchers regimes I had followed before. I have two dear friends that I made on the fasting forum,who I’m in touch with on a daily basis,and I have made many friends here on the BSD forum as well,with whom I have shared good times,bad times,advice and support,laughter and commiserations- whatever is needed!
    So,thank you MM for enriching my life in several ways over the years!
    How much more difficult it must be for his wife and children than it is for us,sad and shocked though we are. What an enormous loss in their lives.My thoughts are with them.
    Rest In peace Dr Mosley,safe in the knowledge that you did so much good while you were on this earth,and helped so many people.
    Thanks to admin for setting up this thread.

    I was so shocked & upset to hear that Michael Mosley was missing which has been compounded by having his death so sadly confirmed. He was such a likeable presenter of complex medical information & research & also wrote in such an accessible way enabling so many people including my Type 2 Diabetic husband & I to evaluate & take action to improve our health but most importantly to better understand the cause of Type 2 Diabetes. His many books & tv programmes covering a wide range of health problems have helped many people to help themselves in a unique & accessible way and I will much miss his ongoing contribution to this work.
    My thoughts & deep condolences are sent to his family at this time & how sad & devastating this must be for them.
    Rest in peace Dr Michael Mosley & thank you for all you did to help so many people!!

    At this point it seems too early to be discussing trivial things like whether I lost or gained, whether I did any exercise. So I will leave it for a few days to let things sink in. Although, if anyone wants to continue their journey and discuss their diet please do so.

    Will see you all back here in a few days time. God bless Michael and his family at this time.
