    Diabetes is a silent killer & you can make it your best friend or your worst nightmare. It's one of those diseases, if ignored will creep up on you. To show how serious diabetes is more than 450 million people are diabetic world wide & in the USA every, for mins a person is added to the kidney transplant list. Having said that the sooner you take action the more likely you are in increasing your life expectancy in combating obisity, high blood pressure, brain annurysim, kidney disease, blindness & gangerine. Just look up the side effects & symptoms & speak to your doctor, specialist & dietitian, because prevention is certainly better than a cure. Having said that diabetes is reversible. For example I reversed my kidney functioning from 11% to 70%, after dialysis & taking drastic action. The reason IAM saying this is because I had a stroke, which I don't want anyone to go through. I used to be able to easily wash the car , do house work & drive & do 35 consecutive push-ups. But my stroke I can't even do 1 pushup, drive or jog & I have to 1 hour physio twice a week. Having said that you can still enjoy your junk food, once a week in 5 day intervals. If you only know what's its like, how to feel how something that takes you 4% effort, after a stroke it will take you 70% effort. By the way stroke bis the second killer behind hear disease globally. You certainly can't place a price on your health. If it was up to me I will implement a health plan system for people in different stages of their health. Exercise is very important. Don't take your health for granted, because it's not with it. Eventually your new healthy diet & 3 times a week exercise will become a habit & you'll live a very satisfied long life up to 80+ if you take action now before it's to late. For example I eat every 5 day intervals. Saturdays MacDonald's breakfast & Thursday KFC lunch. Then I skip a week, then Saturday & Thursday etc. Also never cure depression with binge eating, because your better off going to the gym, washing the car, & doing the lawn & house work, because after a stroke you being be able to do any of these things. Avoid the pit of 🔥 at all costs.

    Learning more from your channel is teaching me why people might go the natural medicine route. It seem like some drugs just bring on another problem while treating another.
