Tom Watson began to put on weight in his early twenties, having developed an appetite for fast food and cheap beer while studying at University. He continued to pile on the pounds when he entered the world of politics as an MP and before long he weighed 22 stone. After being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, he decided to take control of his diet and exercise. In his book Downsizing, he details how he started to feel better quickly and within a short time his long-term blood sugar levels were within normal range. Last summer, he came off his medication.
