In April 2104 David Lindsey started the Haddenham Tyrefighters Weight Loss Group. Having spent a lifetime fighting his overweight condition, which at one time nearly cost him his career as an RAF transport pilot, years of reading and learning by trial and error resulted in a new lifestyle which took him down from 17 stones to his current 13 stones.

It was this degree of success which lead him to decide that his message could be of use to anyone realising that being overweight can lead to the onset of Type 2 Diabetes with an increased risk of some very unpleasant illnesses such as blindness, leg amputation, cardiac problems and cancer. Type 2 Diabetes kills people and yet there are some 500,000 people in the UK who are unaware of the fact that they have the condition.

Type 2 Diabetes comes as a result of a poorly chosen lifestyle. Changing that lifestyle can prevent the onset of Type 2 and, properly handled, can put the condition into remission where someone already has it. David himself is a case in point — he no longer has Type 2 Diabetes.

At the age of 80 he feels that although he still enjoys giving his talks to the group on two occasions each month there will come a time when he is no longer able to continue and he has therefore decided to put his six inspirational lectures onto a DVD.

After six months of hard work and overcoming a number of technical problems the two-hour DVD now exists and is available for purchase at £10 per copy.

David has never derived any financial benefit from the five years that the group has been in existence. His reward, he feels, is watching his members steadily losing weight and meeting their targets, some losing over 50 pounds!

His attitude to the DVD is the same. He will derive no financial benefit whatsoever and any profit will be passed to the hospice movement.

If you would like to obtain a copy of the disc, please e-mail him on Tyrefighters@outlook.com and he will contact you.
