So I got a call from a friend that is completely off his insulin in 3 weeks. He was taking 80cc a day.
I introduced him to the program that helped me avoid getting diabetes…
I was on track for diabetes but in 6 weeks i dropped 50lbs and no longer have sleep apnea! My life has changed completely! I have decided to become a health coach and pay it forward. =]

If you are going to be a health coach I would suggest getting some good training.

80cc of insulin a day would kill any human, it would probably be enough to kill an elephant. Also the statement "..the program that helped me avoid getting diabetes…" is kind of odd. How did it exactly help you avoid getting diabetes? It's not something that you can say in until you are dead without ever getting diabetes. If you are genetically predisposed to it then at some point in your life you will get it, it may be the day before you die or it may be next week. Some types you might be able to hold off for a while with a healthy lifestyle but eventually genes will trump lifestyle. Of course at that point a healthy lifestyle will make managing diabetes a whole lot easier.

You are right, I meant to say 80 units.

Well "the program that helped me drop weight" would be a better statement I suppose… But answer me this, Who has a higher chance of getting diabetes, The Obese? Or the person with a healthy BMI? I was obese, now I am at a healthy BMI so couldn't that be preventative?? Also I said that it did help me avoid getting it because it has… I don't have it nor am I even close to being on track to getting it!

Your statement "If you are genetically predisposed to it then at some point in your life you will get it, it may be the day before you die or it may be next week." May be true but that is IF you are predisposed… I am not, so by saying that it helped me avoid getting it is 100% accurate…

The training that I get is by far the best available… I work with a team of Doctors that have given up their practices to do the same job as me… I can introduce you to any one of them if you like?
Take the co-founder for example, DR. Wayne Scott Anderson. Here are some of his credentials:

I am simply trying to help create health in America as my health coach has done for me…

"But answer me this, Who has a higher chance of getting diabetes, The Obese? Or the person with a healthy BMI?"

The person with the genetic predisposition to diabetes. If they both have that, the healthy BMI may hold it off longer though. If you are not predisposed, obese or healthy then you wont get diabetes - just look at the overwhelming majority of obese people without diabetes for that. Being a healthy BMI can be a bit misleading because BMI isn't a great tool to track health on it's own but being healthy in general does reduce your risk for many other diseases and improve general quality of life. I have no issue there.

Hey there Dillon. There's a link on the bottom of this page that says "Terms of Service". Please check it out.

To sign up to access Diabetic Connect you had to agree to those terms. Everybody has to. Part of these terms of service says that you're not supposed to use the site to sell product to other users. Here is the wording, about 11 or 12 paragraphs from the top:

" Gathering email addresses from this site through harvesting or automated means is prohibited. Posting or transmitting unauthorized or unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, or any other forms of solicitation to other users is prohibited. Inquiries regarding a commercial relationship with Alliance Health should be directed to: small "

What you are selling MAY be the best stuff since sliced bread, or it may not be. That's not the point. You agreed you wouldn't use the site to sell your product or your "health coach" "services".

We'd love for you to join in the community and get to know people, and for us to get to know you. But please don't try to sell your wares to us, — no matter how good or beneficial they may be.

If you want to enter into a commercial relationship with the DC site, then the email address to inquire about that is there in the section quoted above.

Hey Jayabee,
Yes I read the term of service and I apologize for this post. My health coaching is a free service… However I will no longer try and sell anyone anything. I just want to be a productive member of this website that helps others get/stay healthy. =]
