I began my LWES journey on the 29th March 2021. Like most people, while losing weight is a battle, mine has been coupled with the fight to control my Type 2 Diabetes.

After one (1) month of being on the KetoDiet, together with intermittent fasting, I saw some fantastic results: my A1C was down to 6.3% (May 2021 test result) from 9.3% (February 2021 test result)! AND, my endocrinologist took me off of all insulin (I was on two types: long lasting once a day and fast acting with each meal)…this was the best news of all!

As of now, I only take oral medication (Metformin) as a transition from the insulin and Victoza to help my body better produce its own insulin. I hope to be off both these medications after my next check up!

I test my blood glucose a few times during the day and the numbers have been consistently low. I can only attribute this to the KetoDiet and the intermittent fasting. My body is healing itself…WIN! WIN! WIN!??????

For me, getting better control of my diabetes has been my focus. Nevertheless, I am pleased that I have lost 10 lbs since beginning my journey. I take on intermittent fasting as a welcome challenge (to date, a 36-hr fast has been my longest undertaking!) and I have become mindful of how my body responds during my fasts: for example, slight headaches mean “drink more water!”

I’m in this for the long haul and I am enjoying the ride!!!
