Hello guys i'm a type 1 diabetic and let me tell you guys, the key to conquering diabetes is to make yourself control your diabetes, don't let it control you! I have had type 1 diabetes for almost 14 years now and it truly was a struggle for me when I was first diagnosed.(At 4 years old) Especially during my childhood years. I always asked myself "why am I not like the other kids?" "why cant I be normal" Later as a teen I came to a realization… I do NOT want normal, I want to be above the norm. I began weight lifting, swimming, learning about health and nutrition, studied the human body, and started counting macro nutrients. I was astonished with how phenomenal my health has become and how my physique changed amazingly. If it were up to me, I say my diagnoses has been a blessing and I look at it as a gift in my life as I would have never had learned all of this knowledge and passion towards health and fitness. I know I am only 17 years old but I guarantee you guys I can help YOU change YOU'R life. If anyone needs help planning a "diet" (not a diet in my book, food with minimal limitations/healthy lifestyle) and a workout plan please contact me. I will fully customize you macro nutrient guid lines (how much carbs/fats/proteins your body needs depending on your desired goal) and a completely personalized workout regimen/routine that suits your lifestyle. All I want to do is help other people suffering with diabetes because I know that feeling of frustration and sadness. I want to help diabetics conquer that feeling and disease and be above and beyond the person you ever thought you could be. Just send me a message or shoot me an email whenever you would like my friends!
