    Prediabetes Is More Common Than You Think and What You Can Do To Reverse It ASAP

    Prediabetes Is More Common Than You Think and What You Can Do To Reverse It ASAP

    Here’s a crazy truth: About one in three American adults already have pre-diabetes and as many as 84% of them have NO IDEA. 

    The problem is that most doctors are misinforming (or mistreating!) people who are in the pre-diabetic range–which makes it harder to overcome as time goes on even though the condition is completely reversible.  

    This starts to show up as cognitive decline, an increased risk of heart disease, damage to blood vessels in the eyes–and eventually, full-blown diabetes. 

    Catch today’s potentially life-saving podcast for all the signs of pre-diabetes, how to test for it properly, and what you can do to reverse it FAST–and learn:


    What your HA1C is telling you (and why you should listen!)

    Which tests can help you spot pre-diabetes EARLY and how to read them

    4 steps for reversing pre-diabetes on your own

    The One Habit I Do Every Day That Transformed My Negative Mindset For Good

    As a teenager, I was surrounded by women who were critical, miserable, angry, and skewed towards a negative mindset. 
    I grew up during those years not feeling safe to share my own struggles or challenges because there was no room for it… plus, the answers were always the same: Life is hard… that’s just how it is… you’ll get over it.
    I skewed this way, too–until something hit me… HARD!
    Catch today’s shortie to find out what changed everything for me and how I navigated my way out of pessimism into a life of joy and gratitude.
