Chef claims to have cured his diabetes in 105 days

WHEN PROFESSIONAL chef Lyndon Wissart was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, he was determined that this would not be a life sentence. The thought of spending the rest of his life on medication with a long list of foods he couldn’t eat, made him think that there must be an alternative.

If it was food that caused the problem in the first place, then surely changing his diet could undo the damage, he concluded.

Armed with 30 years of his professional knowledge of food, he set about researching what could make a difference. By putting into practice what he learnt, he claims that he successfully managed to completely cure himself in just 105 days.

In his new book The Inspired Diabetic, published by Filament Publishing on January 24, 2017, he shares his journey and shows how anyone can do the same – if they have the knowledge and determination.

“Working in kitchens all day”, says Wissart, “I was surrounded with all sorts of tempting foods. My weakness was desserts and of course, I had to try them to make sure they were alright! When I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes my blood glucose reading was nearly off the scale at 15.9 and I was experiencing all sorts of unpleasant complications. I didn’t want this to turn into a life sentence and I certainly didn’t want to spend my life on medication so I put to use all the knowledge I have gained about food to see what I could do to make a difference. What I achieved amazed me – and my doctors!”

Wissart has shared his journey from diagnosis to cured in 105 days in his new book.

“I know how devastating a diagnosis can be but if you think of it as an opportunity, then you are in the right mindset to do something about it. I have proved that with a sensible fitness regime and an intelligent diet based on good information, you too can achieve what I have done”

Wissart is now on a mission to share what he has learned and give hope to people who believe they have few choices. He founded Lynspiration, a self-help group that shares information and offers encouragement. He has also embarked on a programme of public speaking and events to share his philosophies and knowledge.

“It is frightening to see how fast diabetes has become almost a national epidemic. Certainly the growing cost to the NHS is mind boggling, not just from supplying the medication but also in treating all the further complications and conditions that come from diabetes. So much of this could be avoided with good information.

"My story does not have a sugar coating, it goes into all the details of the procedures and tests I had to undergo and what I learned from all the many caring professionals that helped me through them. I am sure that, by reading what happened to me, you will have more than sufficient motivation to make the simple changes you need to make in your life, to avoid going through the same. ”
