Tom Watson MP : Deputy Labour Leader : Low Carbing !


You may have already read about Deputy Labour Leader Tom Watson and his weight loss...
With headlines such as:

Tom Watson: weight struggle made me realise scale of obesity crisis ... and 

Politician loses weight on low carb and realizes we can do more to combat obesity.

Yes, after reading about how other politicians died early from lifestyle-related diseases, British politician Tom Watson decided to take control of his weight and started low carbing

He is now 84 pounds (38 kg) lighter and his weight loss has made him realize that not enough is done to overcome the obesity epidemic.

He said, " I kept reading about Labour politicians that died early in their 50s and 60s and I want to get healthy, and actually for me the journey’s been very interesting because what I realise is there’s a lot more we can do in public health to deal with the obesity crisis, because you know we’ve got 10 million of these people heading to diabetes, another 15 million sitting behind them are overweight. "

I really think low carbs and sugars are the way to go but it is so hard to get there...thank you for always showing great low carb and healthy meals.
