I have to give Lumo Lift a one star for effort, though the thing is horribly inconsistent. Would try to slouch and it did nothing- at other times was sitting tall and perfectly correct and it would not stop buzzing. Don't waste your $$ on it.
On a brighter note, I am day 3 of being what I will call low sugar--- not no sugar. By low sugar I mean I am not adding teaspoons of sugar to my tea or coffee. I am not drinking any product with sugar added to it. No candy, no ice cream etc. What I know still has sugar in it that I have occassionaly are my low sugar Smuckers preserves with my Cashew Butter on Gluten free crackers. No sweet BBQ sauce- So, it's pretty low sugar, compared to what I used to be. On day three here I have added back in fruit and I feel from what I've read that if you eat natural sugar (in fruit) there is enough fiber in the fruit to slow the absorption of sugar and it doesn't have the same impact that eating sugar cubes in your tea has, or downing a mountain dew or donut has.
So, what have a noticed? Massively improved even mood. Even energy, skin is glowing now-- didn't know my skin could feel so soft or look so good. Also dropped to my lowest weight in years when 2.2 extra pounds dissipated. My hair is now growing and it has literally not grown in years. Not kidding or exaggerating. And it is filling back in. It has been so thin that you can clearly see my scalp. Not attractive at all. Only time I could fain confidence was to sport a baseball cap with rhinestones and a ponytail. (what little pony tail I could muster--- about the size of a sharpie in diameter. Now it is about as thick as three sharpies. No more aches and pains in my joints and my endurance is up. Hmmm.... and my morning blood sugars have been between 86-94. I am not diabetic, though it runs wildly in my family and I have monitored it occasionally to see how it affected my moods, and boy does it.
Well, I just wanted to let you all, whomever reads this. If you haven't taken a sabbatical from sugar, I did/am and am quite impressed with the benefits. Will try to keep you updated as it goes. Am thinking this is like going gluten free---- and will have to be a lifetime change for the benefit of my Hashimoto's Thyroiditis.
