Diabetes in the jeans – People risk developing type 2 diabetes if they can’t fit into the jeans they wore at 21, according to Roy Taylor, a Newcastle University professor and expert on the disease. Taylor has told how study participants with type 2 but a “normal” body mass index (BMI) went on an 800-calorie per day diet of soups and shakes. Eight in 12 managed to “get rid” of their type 2 by losing 10% to 15% of their body weight. Taylor said the results, while preliminary, “demonstrate very clearly that diabetes is not caused by obesity but by being too heavy for your own body … If you can’t get into the same size trousers now, you are carrying too much fat and therefore at risk of developing type 2 diabetes, even if you aren’t overweight”.


I would love to try it, but sadly I have thrown away all the jeans I wore when I was 21, flared bottoms and plush denim Seadogs if I remember correctly!
