"This is an excellent program and a much more comprehensive approach than what I received from my doctor and dietician. Very helpful and instilled a sense of purpose to pursue my goals"
"Learning this information has helped me modify my diet in useful, rather than haphazard ways. My A1C went down from 8.2 to 6.7 before and after the diabetes clasess."
