A1C 9.6 to A1C 4.9 in 4 months
Hi, my name is korina, this is my testimony,
On October 2020 I was diagnosed with fatty liver and on November 2020 I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, I was in complete shock and was instantly scared, I asked myself how did I let myself get to this point? So I was told by my doctor that I can either start medication or loose weight and change my diet to try to controlled it, my doctor told me to stay away from carbs which will spike my sugar, which I did for a month and was miserable, feeling so deprived. One day on Tik Tok I came across Charmaine’s page and was in awe, I was not sure if it was possible since my doctor told me you can manage your sugar but it will always be a battle and the lowest you can get your A1c will be in the 7s so thats what I believed.
However I decided to take a step back and really evaluate my life and my habits, what really got me to this point? I know it wasn’t eating fruits and vegetables and brown rice or healthy carbs, It was my unhealthy habits of fast food, fried food, and no exercise, so I decided to give it a try, and it was the best decision of my life. I was told by my doctor that fatty liver takes anywhere from 6 months to a year to get rid off, which I was able to get rid off in 3 months, I have never felt better in my life, I have so much energy, I am no longer tired all the time, and I can eat fruit and have my sugar in the 90s, I was so scared of eating a banana and brown rice, and I was surprised with every meal my sugar was lower and lower, and most important I don’t feel deprived, and I enjoy my food and the endless healthy choices I can make.
During this process I have lost a total of 60 pounds but I also gained so much, a healthy lifestyle and knowing that we all have a choice to better our life, I still remember the first thing Charmaine asked me on our one on one call, do I believe in myself? Because it all comes down to what you believe you can accomplished, she told me the mind is the most powerful thing and if you believe you can, then you will, that will stay with me for the rest of my life. I am happy to announced that I am diabetes free my A1C from a 9.8 has dropped to a 4.9 all I can say is WOW!!!!! My doctor was amazed!! I no longer have fatty liver and many other health problems I was having, I took controlled of my health and decided to make a change for the better, I really hope you find this inspiring and if I can do it so can you. In order for our body to flourish, we need to nourish it.
Stephanie's Reversing Diabetes Story
I am so thankful that I found you and your team! My life has completely changed in the past year and I am happy to say I am the most healthy I have been in years! I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes about 13 years ago and over the years I have been just managing this disease. In 2022, I received my routine lab results and saw my A1C was at the highest it’s been which was 10.1%. My doctor put me on more medication, which unfortunately my insurance would not cover. When I saw that my out of pocket costs for these medications were between $500 and $2,000! It was a wake up call! It led me to take action and take a different approach. I had been following Charmaine’s tik tok videos for a few months and decided to reach out to her. This is one of the best decisions I made in my life! Within a few months I learned so much about plant based eating and how much of an impact it had on my health. I learned to be consistent, I had a much better understanding of how and why different foods affect our body, and I learned to be more creative in modifying my favorite meals to make them more plant based friendly! My favorite part about this program is that I learned how to have more nutritious meals and modify my favorite foods without having to give them up.
I noticed that my blood sugars were starting to go down while eating more carbs! I was so excited about this because for years I had been told carbs are bad.
While working with Charmaine and her team, they helped me work with my doctor and I was able to get off most medications and reduce others.
I went in to see my endocrinologist recently and she was impressed that even with taking me off some medications, I have continued to lower my A1C. She said “Whatever you’re doing, keep doing it because it’s working!”
My cholesterol is great! Even my vitamin D which has always been low actually came back normal!
This is my new lifestyle. I will forever be grateful to have found such amazing people to work with who have helped turn my life around for the best!
It's never too late to turn things around.
All my clients adopt my method of reversing insulin resistance where they're able to eat MORE carbs. lower blood sugar, decrease A1C, get off medication and reverse diabetes.
Everyone has different starting points and progress- but as long as they stick to it, they see RESULTS that last.
What are they eating???

Lowered Blood sugar from 386, 274 to 98, 87mg/dL
Starting my new lifestyle change with Lean on Plants has been the best decision I’ve ever made! I have learned so many new things with this program that will benefit my health for life. In just the first and second weeks I noticed a drastic change in my blood sugar levels; I went from having numbers that ranged from 386, 274, 218 then bringing them down to 112, 98, 87. I don’t think I had ever seen anything below 150 on my glucose meter in years!
My family and friends started pointing out the positive change in my appearance. I started hearing from them that it looked like I had lost weight and that my skin was looking clear. I did, in fact, lose ten pounds during my first month and I felt super energized. I have gone down two pants sizes ever since and my energy has increased. My favorite part about the program is that the meals are delicious, super tasty, and you aren’t starving yourself. No more “bunny food”, you can have as much tasty meals as you’d like!
Charmaine works 110% with you to see what is best for you and continues to constantly motivate you. She’s with you literally every step of the way. I wish I had found this program sooner, so I could’ve start sooner. I recommend this program to anyone out there who would like to make a positive lifestyle change in their health. I feel great and I am super happy with my results. I know I will continue to see nothing put positive changes. I can’t thank you enough Charmaine, you have been a big blessing, thank you for all that you do for myself and for others!
