In Downsizing Tom Watson shares his honest, very frank and inspiring account of how he radically changed the way he ate, lost eight stone and reversed his type 2 diabetes.
Tom Watson began to put on weight in his early twenties, while studying at the University of Hull. He continued to pile on the pounds when he entered the world of politics as an MP, despite short-lived flirtations with fad diets and fitness classes.
After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in late 2015, he decided to take control of his diet and exer- cise. He started to feel better quickly and within a short time his long-term blood sugar levels were within normal range. By July 2018, he had come off diabetes medication and had climbed Mount Snowdon.
Downsizing charts his journey, with all its ups and downs, and how he turned his life around.
