Before beginning the SHT program my health was in a state of flux. My digestive system was not functioning properly. I was plagued with heartburn on a regular basis and pre-diabetic. I would experience blood sugar drops in the afternoon which caused me to rest when I should have been working out or spending time with family. When I was given the opportunity to sign up for the 10 week Super Human Transformation I jumped on it and I remember thinking I can only go up from here. I was all in, I followed every guideline and within two weeks I started to feel better and I quickly started to realize that I was always meant to eat this way.
I also feel that I have experienced great success in this program because our bodies are meant to be self -sufficient (creating its own energy and burning fat for fuel). That is where the BIG win came for me. Once my body became self-sufficient, once my body started learning how to burn its own excess body fat for fuel, my blood sugar drops (like hypoglycemia) immediately stopped and my blood glucose levels aligned within the normal range after only three short months. I cannot say enough about how important it is to eat the right foods, to time things properly, and to nurture space between meals. It made all the difference in the world for me. I see it, I feel it, I experience it.
As I sit here eight months later, I am 39 pounds lighter, my cholesterol level has dropped by 60 points, I am no longer pre-diabetic , and most importantly I feel AMAZING!! I want to share my experience with everyone because I know there are so many people that are suffering from the same issues I once did and I know you can reverse it through this program. I want everyone to feel AMAZING!!
