Cut back on the beef and pork! I know, I know juicy steaks, pork chops, BACON, ham, mouth watering ribs, oh so yummy cheddar bratwurst, sausage and so on.. The results are astounding when you cut back on red meats/ pork. Now don't get me wrong I am not suggesting that you cut it complete from your diet. Trust me when you eat less meat product and more veggies your body thanks you! You can feel the good it does..strange yes but so good!
Moderation and substitution are the keys! Turkey Bacon, Turkey Sausage(so yummy),fish. Ever heard of Boca?!? Veggie Burgers, veggie chicken patties, sausage, and "beef" crumbles.. they all taste so good and the burgers are amazing! Less fat, Less calories plus you can still eat beef/pork in moderation.

Pre-diabetes is where an individual experiences some insulin resistance, resulting in higher blood sugar levels than normal, but those levels are not elevated high enough to be considered a Type 2 diabetic. Unchecked and by not controling portions, eating less carbs, and getting regular exercise a pre-diabetic will eventually get diabetes. Obese people are at great risk also.
YOU and YOU ALONE are resdponsible for controling your life. God may shine the way for you, but you are the one that has to decide to walk in the light or in darkness. This applies to every area of life.
God has empowered you to take control by deciding what is in you and what comes out of you. It's up to you to use it.
I stopped using ground beef in my recipes about 6 months ago, and use ground turkey instead. I thought my carnivore boyfriend would refuse it, but he hasn't even noticed the swap! Just one small way to cut some calories easily.
