I went through a rough patch in my life. My mom passed away, and it really hit me hard. I sank into depression for a while, and it ended up seriously affecting my lifestyle.
I stopped working out, and began to use food as a coping mechanism. My weight increased rapidly, and before I knew it my doctor was telling me that I was pre-diabetic. I realized that if I didn't do something quickly, I'd end up in a really bad place.
My first steps to pulling myself out of the hole I'd ended up in were to radically change my diet and exercise routine. I didn't need a doctor to tell me how to eat well or what workouts to do, as I just started doing what I'd done before. But that wasn't enough. I wanted to be sure that I'd be okay, so I started looking for a cure for diabetes.
There was a lot of stuff about how it can only be treated and not cured, but I still came across this book called The Diabetes Loophole. It looked really promising, going by the reviews it was getting, and I decided to give it a try.
