In the first week after I joined Metabolic I began to see a difference in that I no longer needed the once a day heartburn medication I was taking. Next I began to see my glucose numbers drop dramatically. They began to be below 100 in the mornings. I lost inches immediately before I lost pounds. I needed to see a difference before I went to my doctor for my 3 month check up. He was pleased needless to say. He checked my A1C which is an average of three months. I was at a 6 which is almost normal. He had nothing to complain about. So I tell folks at my center in Dothan, Alabama that they are now Doctor Approved! :) My sugars have leveled out now, and I pay more attention to what I am eating. My personal goal is to simply lose 20 pounds, more would be great, but that's my short term goal now.
