    I thought you had to be a fatty to be pre-diabetic. I've been slacking on my work outs and cardio for sure but never knew I'd be PD!
    Not in my bit
    I guess the Hemoglobin A1C was 6.1 for me.

    5.7 to 6.4 is Prediabetes

    over 6.4 is Diabetes!

    WTF???

    So doctors saying I gotta lose weight, each more plant based meals, more fish.

    Anybody else in a similar boat? Or any tips? Suggestions?

    I saw if you eat avocado, garlic, kiwi, lemon, eggs, even popcorn helps!

    Yeah bro thanks I plan to.

    The thing is work always sends me out to events, conferences, business trips so I'm stuck on planes, hotels, eating horrible junk food and bar food/fast food for like 6 months of the year. Also at the networking events we are drinking up a storm to network and land accounts/close deals and of course its all bar fried food(carbs galore).

    This is really what F'd me over. The good thing is this year 2020 they won't be sending me out that much since our big trip to Japan got canceled due to the CV drama.

    I got a conference in Vegas in March and some on the east coast in sept and October but I plan to work out mostly cardio from now on like 5 days a week minimum. I even bought a new bike to bike up the big hill trails.

    I'm eat ton of fish, salad, avocado, kiwi, nuts, chia seeds all the stuff thats supposed to lower that 6.1
    Oh well then...just let it all go. What's a little diabetes anyways.

    **** dude, i'm sorry to hear that!!

    I've eaten unhealthily my whole adult life pretty much, from micro burgers to endless takeaways. I should be a fat ass but I tend to limit myself to one meal a day actually, just to curb intake of calories. It's varied throughout my adult life but i've usually had some form of exercise going on, usually running. (which I hate but I love food so, what to do )

    Why were you initially tested? Did you have symptoms or were you just having a routine check up?

    I wish you all the luck buddy, try to stay disciplined with the food but don't forget to live too!

People need to take the time to learn about nutrition... to learn ALL YOU CAN about it if you want to avoid health problems. When you are young you are very resilient but after 40 you begin to pay for all your mistakes.
    Yeah bro I heard lot of people tell me after 40 is a mofo! Not looking forward to that lol.

    I seen guys fit as can be looking like prime Tyson Beckford and once they turn 40 they look like Rerun from Whats Happening and I'm like WTF happened to you?

    Exercise helps a lot but you really HAVE TO get your diet in check. Even if you don't cook for yourself, understanding what goes in your food and how it's made helps tremendously. That knowledge gives you a lot more control and will lead you to making better dietary decisions.

    Definitely don't wait as it doesn't get easier. Best of luck and I hope you stay free of the diabetes.

    Also, watch out about the drugs. The meds that my grandfather took for his diabetes gave him high blood pressure, which is what ended up killing him.
    Green K FAM!

    Yeah both my work outs and diets been F'd for the past few years my jobs got me living in and out of hotels eating hotel junk food and bar food for like 6 months straight.

    This year will be the first year I won't have to travel as much because we were supposed to go to the Tokyo Olympics but with the CV drama god knows if that shats even still on or not?

    Whats funny is Im usually most healthiest from January to like March as I try to quit drinking all together for as long as I can and I hit the gym every day. Then around March on they start sending me out to all the business trips again and things get mad unhealthy from that point on.

    But yeah I've been telling my lady to cook more fish, salad, veggies now at the crib and we've been eating less and lot more healthier.

    But on the genes my grandma had diabetes I heard it skips a generation? So me and my siblings are all at high risk.

    I'm glad you healthy tho bro!
