Sean has beaten type 2 diabetes

For years, Sean has been living with type two diabetes, and struggled to find a good balance between enjoying food and being healthy.

 

However, in the last eighteen months, Sean has worked really hard with his support staff to try new, healthier food and build a meal plan that he can stick to.

 

Now Sean has lost a significant amount of weight and is doing really well at maintaining his new lifestyle, whilst still eating and doing things that bring him joy.

 

As part of his annual health review, he was told that he is no longer considered to be diabetic, and can stop taking medication.

 

Sean said that he feels on top of the world with what he’s been able to achieve with support, and is keen to stay on top of his health through careful meal planning, regular weigh ins, and allowance for occasional treats.
