Ben is the bomb

While not a diabetic Ben is my nutritionist and strength and conditioning coach. I can’t say enough about how he has changed my life

I simply listen to what he tells me and my transformation has been incredible.

I can’t enough say how everyone with a health condition needs to meet Ben.

You are my hero

Type1 diabetic sice the age of 10…

I got it in June of 1958. When I went back to school in September. I had to bring bottles with me so that the doctor could test it every month that was humiliating to say the least! Hated it! I was skinny like olive oil, and I have a lot of positive things to say about it I am the oldest person that I know that has this disease. For 64 years I’ve been a type 1 diabetic! I have a lot more to say as I have not died as my friends have. I was 10 years old as my doctor told my parents I had a chance to live another 5 to 10 years if I was “lucky”.

I loved all your episodes! I have listened to many of them over again. Thank you for doing this!

Having a difficult time writing this.
Hope I can get back to this!!!
