Try these four recipes if you’ve been diagnosed with prediabetes or trying to bring type 2 diabetes into remission with a low carbohydrate diet
These recipes from The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet Recipe Book (Short Books, £14.99) are both low calorie and low carb. They were created by Dr Clare Bailey and nutritionist Dr Sarah Schenker to complement the diet set out in The 8-week Blood Sugar Diet by Dr Michael Mosley (Clare’s husband).
Diabetes UK is funding a trial to see whether a very low calorie diet can put type 2 diabetes into remission. If successful, it could change the way type 2 diabetes is managed. Meanwhile, you should always see a doctor before embarking on any extreme diet.
If you’d like to try some of the recipes from the book, we love these low-calorie dishes, which would fit seamlessly into any healthy diet.
