I’ve lost 70 lbs and have kept it off for four years. I am diabetic, had a heart attack in 2001, and developed neuropathy. I have completely changed my lifestyle and I no longer take any medications. I am no longer considered diabetic. I discovered while researching a book I am writing “YOU CAN’T FOOL MOTHER NATURE” the cause for all my health problems. The overload of carbohydrates, sugars and lack of physical exercise. It’s just that simple. If you cut way back on carbohydrates and start exercising diabetes will be exterminated. We need to get serious about diabetes prevention. Diabetes is the gate way for most chronic illness. We cannot sustain the epidemic of diabetes any longer. Health insurance for families is as much or more than a house payment, with a huge deductible. When did that become acceptable? Go to my website carbwatchers.net I offer support for overweight, obese, pre- diabetic and diabetic people. Carbohydrates are an addiction and we can help you break that addiction.
