I have always been overweight. My family doctor kept telling me I was going to be diabetic. But I never believed her. Then about 10 years ago, sure enough I was diabetic. Never was I told it could be reversed or cured. I was told it could be controlled, but that was all.
I saw an advertisement on Facebook for Dr. Pruchno’s seminar. Talked my daughter into going and decided to do the program together. All I can say was it was life saving for both of us. It was a very simple program to follow, the staff was wonderful, Dr. Pruchno was wonderful, and we did well right away. Soon I was off the glipizide, weaned off the Metformin, stopped the blood pressure pills, and was feeling so much better.
My daughter also got off all of her medications. Right from the start we knew this wasn’t a diet but a life change. We are now big label readers and know how many carbs are in just about everything. The high protein, high fat, low carb, was ideal for both of us. I now know that diabetes can be cured.
I know neither one of us will ever go back to eating the way we did before as we feel so much better now. I thank Dr Pruchno and his staff for this life-changing experience. The weekly weigh ins, monthly meetings, recipes, and everything else they did for us made it a success. We can’t thank them enough for all they did for us and making our life so much more enjoyable. Our lives forever changed. We do not miss our old ways of eating at all!
Karen participated in a group of ten people which met between December 2018 and September of 2019. During the program she was able to lose 61 pounds. Her blood sugars normalized, allowing the elimination of two diabetes medications, as well as medications for hypertension, and chronic GERD. Her hemoglobin A1c went from 7.5 (on medications) at the beginning of the program to 5.4 (on no medications). A Hemoglobin A1c of 5.5 or lower is in the NORMAL, non-diabetic range. One of Karen’s motivations was the health and wellbeing of her daughter Emily, who went through the program with her. Emily was able to lose 87 pounds during the program. Both are doing well and convinced that they will follow this program forever.
