Thursday 7th January, 7.30pm – Live Stream Event
Tom Watson began to put on weight in his early twenties. As time progressed 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. 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. Within a short time his long-term blood sugar levels were within normal range. By July 2018, he came off medication.
In Downsizing Tom Watson shares his honest, very frank and inspiring account of how he radically changed the way he ate, lost eight stone and reversed his type 2 diabetes.
