a reformed diabetic talks about food, fitness training and life after diabetes
I lived (badly) with type 2 diabetes for seven years. It turns out I knew nothing about the disease, no thanks to my HMO. Three years ago I started reading and asking questions. I radically changed the way I eat and finally took control. It’s all about sensible low-carb, whole food eating and lots of exercise. The diabetes is gone and I have normal blood sugars with no medication.
After I lost the weight and kicked the diabetes I decided to get certified as a personal trainer. So now I train and inspire others to head down the path to feeling stronger and healthier. And it makes me accountable for staying on the path, too.
By the way, I’m not a doctor and I don’t work in the medical field. This is not medical advice. This is my personal experience. It works for me. Maybe there’s stuff here that will work for you—maybe not. Only you know your body so use some common sense when taking care of your diabetes. And even though I’m not a big fan of doctors, you should get checked out once in a while.
