WHAT KIND OF DIFFERENCE can a shake make? Just ask Deb Brown, Frances Martin, and Linda Hutchinson, who have seen their lives transformed since Melaleuca introduced GC Control in May 2012.*
Question: Where was your health headed before you discovered GC Control?
I had all five of the risk factors of metabolic syndrome—high blood pressure, high triglycerides, HDL not in the right range. My blood sugar was usually over 100. I was pre-diabetic and overweight. I have been on every diet but the cabbage diet, and I had never been successful at really losing weight and keeping it off. I’d gotten to the point where I just figured the heck with it—I’m just going to be 100 pounds overweight. Things aren’t going to change.
I was an obese child, an obese teenager, and obese on into adulthood. I lost my mother at age 65 to cancer. My dad was 58 when he died from heart disease. My sister died at age 53 from complications due to diabetes. I knew that in order for me to live and be healthy I had to get my weight down to a healthy range. I’d tried diets in the past—you name the diets, I tried them—only to lose the weight and gain more back.
I’ve had trouble balancing my blood sugar levels since childhood. I used to keep crackers and peanut butter and cheese with me because my blood sugar would drop hard and fast. When you get that blood sugar drop you’ll eat 50 bags of potato chips before you ever look down .
