1-2-3’s of Diabetic Carb Counting

When you have diabetes, keeping your blood sugar in a healthy range is not only essential in keeping your diabetes under control, but it can help you feel your best.

In this post, I will discuss one of the more “advanced” methods of meal planning: the Carbohydrate Counting method.

Be Empowered, Today.

IMG_8554

Dear friends,

If you have been following this blog, you may recall that I have a new book out focused on the self-management of chronic conditions titled Being Empowered for a Healthy Heart.

While the book is sold on Amazon, I wanted to ensure that the book would be available at a more accessible price for those within this WordPress community that I value so much.

Therefore, for anybody who may be interested in obtaining a copy for themselves or for a loved one living with chronic conditions, I am making Being Empowered available directly through this blog for $8 USD (plus $2 shipping).

If you would like to obtain one at this price, please use the link below (links on other pages will yield a different price):

Wishing you all good health this holiday season,
