Fixing Dad is about an ordinary British family’s battle with type 2 diabetes... and how their remarkable success offers hope to millions.

Three years ago, Geoff Whitington was overweight, overworked and resigned to a premature death from complications associated with being diabetic. His doctor had begun talking about the possibility of foot amputation.

It was at this point that his two sons stepped in with a radical diet and fitness plan – now endorsed by leading doctors – focusing on nutrition, exercise and the mind. In the next six months, Geoff lost more than four stone and reversed his diabetes. Best of all, he got his motivation and enjoyment of life back.

But they stuck with it... and in the next six months, Geoff lost 5 stone. He went from being an obese, barely mobile night-time security guard to a fighting-fit endurance cyclist. Best of all, he got his enthusiasm and motivation back.

In this book, the Whitingtons show you how they did it ... and share their simple three-part plan to enable you to do it too.

Includes delicious recipes, simple menu plans and tips for how to stay on track.
