How I shed 20 lbs, dropped my A1C from 6.2 to 5.5, and put my high blood sugar in the rearview mirror
Without medication, a new gym membership, or overhauling my diet
“I’m sorry, Lena, but you have prediabetes.”
I looked up from my 3-month-old daughter, Zoe, swaddled in my arms.
My doctor’s words caught me completely off guard. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.
“…and if you don’t start making changes now, it’s likely you’ll be facing a life with type 2 diabetes in the not-so-distant future.”
What was supposed to be the most joyful time with my baby girl became my greatest nightmare
I never thought prediabetes was something I had to worry about, but then I learned nearly half of the people with prediabetes go on to develop type 2 diabetes within 5 years…
And 80% of them don’t even know they have it!
So I guess I should be grateful my doctor is telling me now. But I still couldn’t wrap my head around this diagnosis.
I’m not even that big.
But when my doctor gave me the news, I just felt defeated and frustrated.
It felt like everything—all the things I wanted to teach Zoe, and experiences I wanted to share with her—was slipping away. So at that moment…
I swore I would do everything in my power to be there for my baby
I turned to my friends for help, and one of them told me about a personalized, done-for-you solution that tells you exactly what to eat.
She told me it’s an app made specifically for people like us with prediabetes.
And it tells us exactly what to eat—without having to give up all the foods we love or go on some stupid crash diet that isn’t sustainable long-term.
The app is called Klinio.
To get started, all I had to do was complete a short, 1-minute quiz. It was so simple!
Now, I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical at first. I’d already tried other diabetes and nutrition apps, but they never worked.
But despite my initial reluctance, I knew I was running out of options. So I was willing to give it a try.
And it turned out this one was different
After I completed the quiz, I got a custom meal plan full of foods I like and no foods I don’t like.
There are tons of meals to choose from. And every meal uses simple, common ingredients—a lot of which are already in my pantry—and many can be prepared in 15 minutes or less.
Every Sunday, I select the recipes I want to make for that week, and the app automatically creates my grocery list.
And no more cooking two different meals for me and my husband. He actually looks forward to eating the meals I make.
But that’s not even the best part.
After following my custom meal plan for 3 months, I lost 20 lbs—practically all of my baby weight!
When I saw my doctor again, I found out my fasting blood sugar had gone from 115 to 101, and my A1C dropped from 6.2% to 5.5%.
I’m so grateful my friend introduced me to Klinio, and that’s why I’m telling as many people about it as I can.
And it only takes a minute to get started.
Now when I’m out for a walk pushing Zoe in the stroller, I’m full of pride and confidence in the future I’ll have with her.
Prediabetes is in my rearview mirror, and the fear I once had about developing type 2 diabetes has vanished.
I know how scary prediabetes can be, but it doesn’t have to decide our fate.
So if you’re tired of the “one-size-fits-all” plans that don’t work and the struggle of trying to figure out what you can and can’t eat, then give Klinio a try.
To get started, all you have to do is take a short, one-minute quiz to answer a few questions about yourself and your food preferences.
As soon as you do, your custom meal plan will be delivered straight to your inbox.
