My amazing transformation started after my cardiologist inserted my seventh stent. During my follow up appointment, my doctor strongly recommended that I lose some weight to help with my recovery and overall health. I’ve tried several diets for decades now and none had any significant impacts until now.
"I’m capable of doing more…feeling healthier…and knowing that I eat smarter."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
My biggest misconception was that I was going to be “hangry” during this process. Then to be encouraged to incorporate walking into our daily regiment and/or very little exercise was even more shocking. Then the food…who knew that there was an option that would satisfy my sweet tooth.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
To date, I no longer need any of my type II diabetic medication. This includes a daily oral medication and insulin shot at every meal and an evening shot before bedtime. I also no longer need my indigestion medication, which I needed twice a day. If I did not take this, I would suffer with awful cramps from an upset stomach. Also, my cardiologist has adjusted my blood pressure med and the dosage for my Lasix.
