AbstractBackground: With type 2 diabetes prevalence rising, low energy diets (total diet replacement and food-based low energy diets) are increasingly used to induce weight loss and achieve diabetes remission. The effectiveness of these diets has been primarily tested in the UK white population but not in the south Asian population at high risk of diabetes. Obtaining the opinion of members of the community on what would constitute a culturally acceptable diet is essential for successful interventions aiming to achieve diabetes remission in south Asians. Methods: We organised two patient and public involvement activities in the North West of England to understand views of people from the south Asian population on whether low energy diets (850 Kcal) in the form of total diet replacement or food-based meals, are acceptable dietary interventions to achieve type 2 diabetes remission. Results: Thirteen people, with either type 2 diabetes or having someone with diabetes in the family attended a virtual or a face-to-face meeting. Low energy total diet replacement in the form of soups and shakes was considered unacceptable, while there was a preference for a culturally tailored low energy food-based diet. Ready-made portion controlled catered meals were suggested as a likely approach to improve adherence. Conclusions: This work provided valuable insights to shape a future study looking at the feasibility of a catered meal low-energy dietary intervention to induce T2D remission in primary care within the south Asian population.
