Woman addicted to Coca-Cola goes low carb and comes off type 2 diabetes medication

A woman with type 2 diabetes who drank 30 cans of Coca-Cola a day has turned her health around after going low carb. Mother-of-four Donna Gunner, 51, from Woolavington, Somerset, said her addiction to the fizzy beverage led to her drinking around 70 litres a week, resulting in her gaining weight and being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

But having adopted a low carb lifestyle, Donna has now been able to come off her type 2 diabetes medication and her cravings have subsided.

She said: “I was totally addicted. When I tried to come off it I literally went cold turkey. I got the shakes, headaches and cravings, like a druggy, but I knew I needed to change.
