Eat whatever you want, no food or caloric restrictions what so ever! The only catch is that you can eat only twice a day.  No eating or sipping on liquid calories in between…

Have you heard of this kind of diet yet? This is a diet made popular by renowned diabetologist Dr. Jagannath Dixit and claims to control even reverse people’s diabetes.
