I have prediabetes. Are you sure, I asked my doctor? My routine check-up revealed much more than I expected. Blood work showed that I was prediabetic, prehypertensive, and my cholesterol was over 200. I was 25 pounds over-weight, so I shouldn’t have been surprised. My first inclination was to shut down and not deal with my problem. But, with my family’s health history, I knew I needed to get ahead of this disease.
I tried to find a diet that would help me to get my health back on track. I tried the pre-packaged food diet, the two shakes, and a sensible meal diet, a juice cleanse, intermittent fasting, and simply not eating. Nothing worked for long, I just got frustrated and went back to my old eating habits. I celebrated the end of each new diet plan with my usual large fry, honey mustard sauce, and diet coke.
After finding the right health coach, I got myself together. The weight didn’t drop off overnight, but slowly and surely, my emotional and physical health improved. Guess what, I did it without giving up the food I love or going on a wacky diet that made me feel deprived. That is what I want for you, stick with me, I am going to teach you how to implement simple lifestyle changes that will fit into the way you live.
