I have a family history of diabetes my 2 brothers actually lost a leg below the knee to this illness and I have a sister who is a diabetic. Myself I noticed that my abdomen has been rather distended now for several years and that caused me to want to find out more about this illness although I am a registered nurse.
I remember watching Dr. Oz on the Oprah show and he stated that if you have a family history or have a distended abdomen then your chances are rather great for this disease but he also stated something rather surprising and that was that vinegar actually kills sugar.
And that got me to thinking back when I was a kid growing up that I use to pour vinegar over my vegetables all the time I use to also love eating grapefruits and I was always thin and never had a weight issue so I decided that I would go back to eating the way I did when I was at home with my mother. I started eating 1/2 grapefruit 3 times a day and I started pouring vinegar over my vegetables and even though I haven't gotten on the scale I have noticed my clothes fitting me better and people that know me have been commenting about I look as though I'm losing weight and my belly isn"t sticking out as much so I will keep this up until I can get back in my size 8-10 clothes.
