Like many people, Cheryl followed what she thought was a healthy diet all her life but still struggled with her weight. After receiving a diagnosis of pre-diabetes in 2016, she dove head-first into research about diabetes nutrition only to be met with vague advice about “cutting back on sugar.” This was a good start, but to be successful, Cheryl knew that she needed solid science and practical steps to follow.
When Cheryl found Diabetes Meal Plans, she found just what she was looking for. Now, she’s soaring high, feeling empowered about her health, and pulling great numbers at the doctor’s office to boot. She’s lost 21 pounds, and her A1c, blood pressure, and cholesterol are all within normal range. Amazing!
