As tmm mentioned above the first episode also included a guy whose diabetes was reversed with a no carb diet but he also persuaded the guy and his wife to limit their eating to a 10 hour window. In their case they chose to only eat between 9am and 7pm. (The wife also needed to lose a lot of weight) The doc also convinced the guy to fast for 24hrs one or two days a week and also to do High Intensity Interval Training, which for him was walking fast down the street for 2 minutes, strolling back to the start and walking fast again. It was very impressive how quickly the new regime cured his diabetes.

Retired in Jan, 2010 at 55, moved to England in May 2016
