    Hi Bonniejoy,

    Welcome to the BioTrust Community! We're very glad that you've joined us here. Kudos to you and your husband for getting started with the One Day Diet! We are sure that you're going to enjoy it, BioTrust Low Carb, and the results both help you achieve.

    With regard to your husband, I do want to remind you that neither our premium, all-natural products nor our scientifically-backed diet plans are intended to treat, cure, or prevent any diseases. Because we are neither doctors nor do we know your husband's entire health history, we do recommend that you discuss any specific medical-related questions with his healthcare professional.

    That being said, the One Day Diet can easily be altered to meet the demands of a wide variety of needs. For example, if you're concerned about carbohydrate content of some of the recipes, I would encourage you to consult the 53 Fat Burning Smoothie and Milkshakes eBook and review the "Anytime" recipes, which are much lower in carbohydrates. Even the "Almost Anytime" recipes may be of consideration.

    The two recipes shared in the One Day Diet manual are simply a couple examples of delicious BioTrust Low Carb smoothies. The options are endless, and our wonderful Community Mate Arnetta has even started a long thread with outstanding recipes:

    That being said, the research is compelling clear that, from a nutrition standpoint, a combination of protein, healthy fats, and fiber is optimal to control blood sugar and insulin levels, which reduces disease risk and optimizes the body's ability to effectively use fat for fuel and preserve carbohydrates.

    This same cocktail also seems to be necessary to optimize body weight and reduce fat mass, improve health markers (i.e., stave off disease), improve sleep patterns, and eliminate GI distress.

    BioTrust Low Carb does an outstanding job of covering the "protein" component of this super-nutrient combination. Adding some healthy fats (e.g., coconut oil, olive oil, avocado, nuts, seeds, etc.) and some fiber (e.g., veggies, some fruits) would provide an optimal combination for anyone interested in improving health and body composition. You could even mix Low Carb with liquid separately and simply eat a nutrient-dense salad on the side with a homemade vinaigrette.

    I hope this helps, Bonniejoy!

    Already have diabetes Type 2

    With regard to the lady who mentioned that her husband was pre-diabetic - I have diabetes Type 2 and am on medication - would that have any baring on whether I use the BioTrust Protein Shakes for the One Day Diet?

    Many thanks,

    Big t

    Hi Big t,

    Welcome to the BioTrust Community, and thanks so much for allowing us the opportunity to help you! Before I begin, it is important to note our products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. Because we are not doctors and do not know anyone’s complete medical history, we advise one consult their doctor and/or pharmacist about any specific medical question. Further, one should never stop taking any medications without doctor's approval.

    It appears Dee has already taken care of you, as that was the exact link I was going to reference.

    Essentially, Low Carb is still considered a supplement, thus, we still need to recommend you seek physician's approval before using it alongside our One Day Diet plan. Speaking of which, your doctor should also approve the use of the One Day Diet plan, as fasting may impact your ability to manage blood sugar levels for a brief period of time.

    Assuming you have approval from your physician, you should be good to go. In the meantime, it may be helpful to review the following thread. Coach Tim discusses type II diabetes a bit more in-depth, and I believe you'll benefit from having read it:

    Type II Diabetes: Reversible Condition?

    I hope this helps, Big t. If you have any questions or concerns at all, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help and happy to do so.

    Thank you!
