Meet John...
Diabetic No More!

John* (84) spent his life teaching music and raising his two loving sons. Despite staying in good shape, he was diagnosed with diabetes last year.

But since he’s been eating SmarterNaturally Soup, he’s seen a big fall in his blood sugar levels, he’s no longer diabetic, and he’s feeling healthier than ever!

Here’s his story…

“I became prediabetic about 12 years ago. I wanted to stay healthy as I got older, so I started taking my own fasting blood glucose readings twice a week (in the morning before breakfast) using a home testing machine, which allowed me to keep a close eye on my diabetic health and see how it was changing over time.

For years my wife and I successfully managed my prediabetes by eating a careful diet, often cooking special low-carb recipes designed to help keep my blood sugar under control. We also stuck to the old Royal Marines maxim – no carbohydrates after midday!”

Developing Diabetes

“Our strict diet worked for over a decade, but a couple of years ago my blood sugar readings started creeping up. My doctor was clearly worried about me, because a nurse came out to visit me during lockdown (armored up in full PPE!) in order to take my blood and check my blood sugar level.

Despite my efforts, my blood sugar readings kept rising, and I was officially diagnosed with diabetes in September 2021. I already had age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and so was quite concerned about developing any other eye conditions (like diabetic retinopathy) which could further affect my eyesight.”

A New Hope

“My doctor’s surgery told me that I couldn’t be prescribed the usual treatment for diabetes (metformin) as I was only just diabetic – and so taking the drug might actually make my blood sugar too low. I’m also not overweight, so losing weight wasn’t the answer either. I wasn’t sure what to do next to bring my blood sugar levels down to be honest!

Then my wife read about SmarterNaturally Soup in The Times. It seemed like a good idea, and so we decided we’d give it a go. Quite soon after we started on the soup, I noticed quite a big improvement in my blood sugar readings. I was very surprised actually, to tell you the truth!”

Seeing A Change

“Before I started eating the soup, my fasting blood sugar reading was often in the diabetic range, around 7 mmol/l – I even had one that was as high as 8.3! 

But since I started eating the soup once a week, my fasting blood sugar has gone down by around a whole number (I’m now getting readings of around 6 mmol/l in the morning). I’ve even had readings down as low as 5.8 recently! It’s a real improvement, and I think it’s all because of this soup.

I’ve felt the effects too – I’ve lost a little bit of weight, and I definitely don’t feel as tired in the mornings as I used to. I used to feel like I needed a snooze mid-afternoon, but that doesn’t happen so much anymore. I’ve got an extra spring in my step – my wife says I have more energy than she does now!”

Sticking with SmarterNaturally

“I eat SmarterNaturally Soup for lunch every Saturday now and have been doing so for almost 4 months. It’s become quite a nice routine: I like broccoli so I enjoy the taste of the soup, and I really do think it’s working for me.

I’ll definitely keep going with it – at around £5.50 a week I don’t think it’s expensive at all, and it feels like good value for the benefits it’s brought me. It’s a lot cheaper than most of the supplements and probiotics out there, that’s for sure – one we were recommended costs over £20 a week!

I’ve also recommended this soup to lots of my friends. Most of them haven’t started eating it yet – I think they don’t believe a soup will work for them. But it’s worked for me, so I think more people should try it and see – it might work for them too!”
