Tools Darrell Used:Eat to Live
Results may vary.
Realizing being diabetic and overweight put him on the fast track to disaster, Darrell lost 37 pounds and is no longer diabetic
I weighed 214 pounds, was out of shape, had a 44-inch waist and a BMI of 33.5 I regularly ate meat, eggs, cheese, and refined foods. My cholesterol was 293, triglycerides’ 221, A1C 12.4, HDL 48, LDL 201. Realizing I had diabetes and knowing the potential complications inherent with it, and also being aware of the increased risk of stroke and heart attack related to my weight, I started following the Eat To Live plan.
After three months, my weight was 184 pounds, waist 38, cholesterol 176, triglycerides 81, HDL 54, LDL 106, A1C 6.6, FBS 84. I began walking one hour daily, and swimming one hour twice weekly. In April 2016, I stopped Metformin for diabetes. Now I have great stamina, don't get out of breath, and never get headaches. I enjoy the food and plan to remain on this lifestyle from now on.
