A Newbie

Hi my name is Aileen Grist aka Ailz and I live in Oldham, Manchester, UK. I've been a type 2 diabetic for 6 years now. I was on 6 metformin tablets a day but I lost 4 stone (not low carb) and am now diet only.

I dieted using a high carb, low fat diet, and as others on it will find out, after a while your body gets used to it and happily converts the carbs to fat, so in the last year by followin the same diet I've put 1.5 stones back on.

I've just, this last week, started the Zone diet and I'm amazed at how much energy I have. I have fibromyalgia and have been blaming it for my listlessness (in bed for 8pm every night, sleep 12 hours - still tired), but with this healthy eating I'm bursting with energy.

Speak soon.
