Go Plant-Strong!
The Daily Beet: Tips, Advice and Stories

World Diabetes Day

Today is World Diabetes Day. There is no doubt that there is an epidemic when it comes to T2 Diabetes in our country. It is now estimated that 1 out of 3 adults will get type 2 diabetes in their lifetime. Perhaps the most shocking part of this statistic is that t2 diabetes does not need to exist, and if it does it does not it does not need progress.

If you know someone with T2 diabetes, it’s time to let them know that there is hope. Why not pick up a copy of Engine 2 for them, to let them know that having t2 diabetes is not a hopeless diagnosis.

We have seen so many people get off their medications in as little as 30 days when they adopt a plant-strong diet. We know it can be done, but it takes people making that commitment to themselves to make it happen. If you have t2 diabetes, please know we are here for you! We want you to be healthy! Please know that the Engine 2 light is always on, and we will do what we can to help you – but the first step has to start with you! It’s time to get plant-strong!

Need some motivation? See what happens after Jacquie went plant-strong for only three days… Jacquie says goodbye to diabetes.

    I just read in the Tampa Tribune that the book and diet were being promoted here in the Tampa Bay Area!
    This is how I found this website. I have diabetes and coronary artery disease, and read about your father.
    I nearly jumped on a roof, I was so excited by the gains he has discovered in health.
