Revonda changes her appearance, no longer diabetic
Revonda shared her 5-month “before” and “after” photos and experience living the Wheat Belly lifestyle:
“My before picture taken 7/1/15 and after picture taken 12/1/15. Lost 60 pounds and off all diabetes medicine–metformin, Farxiga, and was going to be put on insulin but, by following your plan, I have gotten off all. Next appointment my doctor said maybe get rid of the cholesterol medicine. Love this lifestyle.”
I stress this over and over again: the surge in the number of type 2 diabetics (actually, type 1 also) is a man-made phenomenon. It is not due to some genetic change, it is not due to some virus. It is due to this awful notion of reducing total and saturated fat and increasing consumption of wheat and grains. There are other contributors, as well, such as the proliferation of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup in processed foods, endocrine disruption from ubiquitous industrial chemicals, vitamin D and magnesium deficiency, and dysbiosis.
But, if you understand what has happened, you are empowered to no longer be a type 2 diabetic in the majority of instances. Revonda avoided injectable insulin (which would have caused impressive weight gain, as it is the hormone of fat storage), and got off of two drugs, including the very costly Farxiga. She is now non-diabetic and got there at practically no cost.
And she also turned the clock back at least 10, if not 20 years, in appearance. And, by becoming non-diabetic, added many years to her life, perhaps as many as 8 years.
