Diet that can beat diabetes even if you are slim is hailed as a ‘game-changer’ by researchers

  • People with type 2 diabetes could reverse their condition with a new diet
  • Even if not overweight, a diet of shakes and vegetables can reverse the diabetes
  • The study could help over 400,000 ‘normal-weight’ people with the condition

A ‘game-changing’ diet can help people with type 2 diabetes reverse the condition – even when they are not overweight.

Experts previously found it can be reversed through dramatic weight loss, with most sufferers being overweight or obese.

Now a study putting ‘normal-weight’ people on a diet of shakes and vegetables has found they, too, can do it.

A combination of nutritional shakes and vegetables can help reverse type 2 diabetes in people, even if they are not overweight

Around 10 per cent of those with diabetes fall into this category – more than 400,000 people across the UK.

Researchers led by the University of Newcastle recruited 20 people with a normal body mass index (BMI) and type 2 diabetes.

Most were found to have a high amount of fat in their liver or pancreas, putting them in a group known as TOFIs – thin on the outside and fat on the inside.

But losing weight on the shakes and veg diet, followed by weeks of eating sensibly, saw 70 per cent of those in the trial reverse their diabetes.

Professor Roy Taylor, who presented the results at the 2022 Diabetes UK Professional Conference this week, said: ‘Everyone has a weight threshold. Above that, they might develop type 2 diabetes. For the majority who have had diabetes for less than six years, they can reverse it through careful weight loss in consultation with a doctor.’

The study group were taken off their medication and put on a diet of nutritional shakes and veg for two to four weeks.

Half went into remission immediately, and another four after repeating the diet once or twice more.
