Hi, I'm Deb also known as Floridagrany because I live in Florida and have three grandkids. I am a basic bookkeeper, certified life coach, reiki master and licensed Esthetician/Nail Tech. I have lived in SW Florida for 42 years and came from Connecticut. I enjoy golfing, bowling, cooking, baking, sewing, reading, my plants, my significant other Don, my family and living a healthy life which for me means no eggs, wheat, gluten, dairy, regular sugar, smoking, or medications. In 2006 I was eating too many sweets and my vision became distorted I had a blood sugar test (A1C) test and my score was 7.8 it should be around 5.5. The nurse said I was probably a diabetic. I did not want to be that! I went to the library and found a glycemic index and immediately started following it. I took about 8 weeks, I lost 20 pounds, my A1C score was 5.5 with no medication or special exercise. I am not a type 2 diabetic I am insulin resistant which could turn into type 2 diabetes. As long as I control my blood sugar I will not become a diabetic. But there was another problem. I was eating a low sugar whole grain bread (not every day) which was really good, and hard boiled eggs for protein (some mornings) but I was still getting severe headaches that I had been getting since the 1990's. In 2014 I went to a natural homeopathic doctor and she recommended a food allergy test to me. (I am sorry to say -no medical doctor that I went to ever recommended this test to me only medications.) The test revealed to me that I am intolerant to eggs, wheat, gluten and dairy. I have learned and continue to learn about foods that I can eat and the headaches have stopped until I allow my mind to become weak and I eat something that I shouldn't. I'm happy to say I really do feel like a healthy granny and I want to share my knowledge with people if they would like it. I'm excited to be a part of WA. Thank you!
