Weight Watchers Diet


Very good up to a point

Pros: Helped me come down from being seriously morbidly obese @ 265 lbs to 210 lbs.

Cons: Very long plateaus, last one drove me to seek guidance elsewhere

Overall: My MD suggested WW on account of its structure, guide, support, and consistency. I was diagnosed diabetic with fasting glucose at 200. In the beginning I found WW to be a good plan with support and camaraderie for so many in the same predicament of needing to lose fat and weight to achieve better health. In 5 years I went from 265 to 210. Thereafter I lingered in a two year plateau and I looked elsewhere for answers which WW could address, I was diabetic and WW does address the variables. My dietician sent me to a program called Lose-It where I learned about “Metabolism Miracle” plan by RD & CDE Diane Kress who has over 30 years’ experience in fat and weight loss, and glucose control for diabetics. 18 months later I am at 180 lbs. and counting, fasting glucose of range 70 to 90, postprandial never over 120, and HgA1C of 5.3 for one solid year and no longer taking any diabetic meds – of course all under MDs supervision. WW served its initial purpose.

Aloe Vera


Drink Up
 

Pros: Aloe helps me with my joint discomfort and aids in digestion

Cons: The taste is not really that pleasant

Overall: I drink aloe vera juice or gel with a mixture of coconut water and lime juice. It's very refreshing and while I have not used it for lowering my glucose levels, I believe it's overall health benefits are very good.
