THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER'An honest and fascinating account of the journey that Tom made from discovering he was a type 2 diabetic to doing something about it.

This book will change lives.' Michael Mosley'enjoyable for stories of Watson's high stress/high booze/poor sleep/comfort eating political life' The Times'Two years ago I turned 50, weighed 22 stone and was heavily medicated for type 2 diabetes.

I thought it would be all downhill from there. By radically changing my nutrition, cutting out sugar, and taking up exercise, I've changed my life and reversed my diabetes.

I hope my story will inspire others to regain their health and happiness and discover the new lease of life I'm experiencing.'Tom Watson began to put on weight in his early twenties, having developed an appetite for fast food and cheap beer while studying at the University of Hull.

As time progressed - and his penchant for anything sweet, fatty or fizzy persisted - he found himself adjusting his belt, loosening his collar and upsizing his wardrobe to XXL.

He continued to pile on the pounds when he entered the world of politics as MP for West Bromwich East (despite short-lived flirtations with fad diets and fitness classes).

By December 2014, his bathroom scales had tipped to 22 stone.

After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in late 2015, he decided to take control of his diet and exercise.

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 came off medication.
