  • Avg. Daily Glucose → 130 mg/dL (down from avg. of 215 mg/dL when I first started)
  • Completely went off all medications middle of May 2018.
  • Dropped 35 lbs.
  • Went from 42 waist size to currently 34. From XXL shirts to Large (and some mediums).
  • More energy, better sleep, better mental focus, blurry vision not as worse as it was and better, better stamina. I feel as good now as I did in my early 30’s. People told me I would feel better than I have in years — and they were right!
  • Walking for exercise daily.
