History of Sharon
One of our incredible Fitlifers, Sharon, wrote to tell us his story.
She is a mother of 2 and is constantly putting everyone ahead of herself, which caused his health to decline.
After years of neglecting their own needs – including your diet – she gained weight and after a visit to the doctor confirmed that Sharon – a vibrant, healthy and full of energy once – had type 2 diabetes .
Devastated, Sharon searched the Internet for natural ways to improve their health to avoid drugs and really get your body back on track.
She began juicing and fueling your body with whole foods. She started walking everyday and instead of giving in to requests from his family for junk food and sweets that had become accustomed, decided that this trip back to health had to be all or nothing.
It was difficult at first and their children were not happy ….
However, overtime, they all started to feel better and found new ways to make this fun lifestyle for the whole family.
Today, Sharon and shows no signs of diabetes and their children are eating vegetables – without complaint
These are the kind of stories we hear all the time in Fitlife.

linen can pull into smoothies, use it to make gluten-free tortilla and cookies sprinkle on salads or add it to your parfait morning. For the greatest benefit, ground before consuming.
