  1. An extremely important topic affecting more lives than people realize. 7 out of 10 American are pre-diabetic with 90% completely unaware. This disease is viewed as a “condition” rather than a life altering DISEASE. People assume medical physicians can maintain their disease with prescriptions. Not only is this fact untrue, it has resulted in more lost limbs (as a result of amputations), heart attacks, neurologic deficits, blindness and strokes than doctors reveal to their patients. Type 2 diabetes is often a “disease” inflicted by lifestyle choices. It is NOT the unfortunate outcome of simply having “bad genes.”
    Thank you for sharing this important information.

    1. Thank you Doctor Jonathan for stressing just how important this is. I agree most people don’t know the horrors of diabetes – a friend’s mom had multiple amputations before succumbing to the disease and my friend was so mad at her because it was preventable or at least manageable if she exercised and watched her nutrition.
      Thank you again for your input, it’s greatly appreciated!

  2. Thank you for sharing this great post. I think that the fear of exercise (‘I’m too tired’) is a real killer.
    Once people get into it, they really start to enjoy it.

    1. I agree Saguren. Once the commitment is there, and a person gets into exercising regularly, they start to see the extra energy, weight loss, and overall mental attitude benefits. I want to say confidence comes out knowing we can do it. Thank you for spending time with us today Saguren – hope you have a wonderful day!
