“It’s so worth it…your body and health are the most precious gifts you have”
When Kathleen Cunningham was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes six years ago she was told she needed to eat a healthy diet. Wanting support with her carb intake, Kathleen attended a low carb meet up in 2017 to find out more about the lifestyle.
“Before the first meet up I felt it would be hard giving up carbs, I am a vegan and find it hard to limit the amount of carbs I eat. I am also lactose intolerant. However, after the meet up I managed to find alternatives. I bought a spiralizer and now make courgetti instead of spaghetti”
Kathleen managed to lose 9.5kg (1st 7 lbs) after the meet up and reduce her HbA1c from 86 mmol/mol (10%) to 31 mmol/mol (5%), meaning it was now in normal range.
“I found wonderful recipes and great support network. I was most surprised when I visited the doctors and they said my drop in blood sugar was amazing and to keep at it.
“It’s so worth it! Change your mindset and remember your body and health is the most precious gift you have.”
