My entire mind set has changed for the better thanks to Dr. Mark Hyman.
I started changing my eating habits from the moment I read Dr. Hyman’s book, The Blood Sugar Solution. This book literally changed my life. I have type 2 diabetes and was at 240 pounds when I began the program. In the last six months, I lost 38 pounds. My A1C went from a 9 to a 6, and I am no longer anemic, B12 deficient, and so tired. My energy level is great, and I feel great. My blood pressure is normal now—120/80, and I predict to be off all meds within one year or less.
I have worked hard to eliminate all processed foods from my diet and sugar as much as possible. My eating habits went from huge portions of bread, rice, pasta, french fries, takeout Chinese food, pizza, and burgers to more mindful eating: salads, smoothies, fruit, veggies of all kinds, healthy soups, yogurt, coconut milk, sauerkraut, hummus, beans, eggs, real butter, avocado, nuts, seeds, and grass-fed meats. I combine the right foods together with lemon water, salads and veggies every day, and do not eat anything fried anymore. I only cook with olive and coconut oils, and I reduced my overall red meat intake. I love cooking healthfully with my husband and finding new recipes to try. Now, I love shopping for food—especially vegetables. I went from a 22 pant size to an 18, and recently fit into a size 16 when I brought the wrong size home thinking it was an 18!
My entire mindset has changed for the better, thanks to Dr. Mark Hyman for inspiring me to get well and work on becoming healthy and diabetes-free. I still have over 50 pounds to lose but know I am getting there.
