Reducing excess weight and obesity are key factors in managing diabetes more efficiently so you can improve your overall health and general sense of well being.

Body Mass Index (BMI), which is a number calculated from the ratio between a person's weight and height, provides a reliable indicator of body fatness for most people. It is used to screen for weight categories that may lead to health problems.

If you have a BMI reading of between 18.5 and 24, you are regarded as being of normal body weight. Below 18.5 is underweight.

A BMI reading of between 25 and 29.9 is regarded as being overweight. Between 30 and 34 is regarded as obese.

A reading between 30 and 34 is regarded as obese and over 34 as being very obese.

To use the table, find the appropriate height in the left-hand column labeled Height. Move across to a adjacent given weight (in pounds). The number at the top of the column is the BMI at that height and weight. Pounds have been rounded off.

"I have been using the Insulite System for about 6 months. I have noticed that my eating habits seem to have transitioned very naturally.... no starvation or denial, I don't crave junk food or sweets anymore!! I have been able to lose about 20 pounds, slowly, safely, and permanently. This is a "for life" program and everyone that has a weight problem should try it!!"

"Although I have never met any of your staff I feel that I get more positive response from you all than my doctors for the last five years.

I'm just so grateful for your organization. You have given me so much hope and something to look forward to. I feel as if I'm dealing with professionals who care about what happens to their patient."

"I cannot believe the difference the Insulite System has made in how I feel. My appetite has changed tremendously. I do not crave carbs and sugar and my appetite is somewhat diminished."

"I have been on the Insulite System for approx 3 months. I have lost 33 lbs, my liver functions are normal and my A1C came back at 5.1, down from 8.03 months ago. I was taking 10 Glucovance pills daily, now I take only 2 pills in the AM. My blood sugar is normal, my energy is higher than it has been in years and I feel great. Insulite along with a change in my diet has changed my life.

I tell everyone that asks me what I have done to change my life, about the Insulite program. Your product is fantastic. I have cut out all sweets, flour, dairy and have no cravings."

"In less than 3 weeks I've started losing weight again after being "stuck" on Weight Watchers for about a year. I've lost about 4 lbs since starting Insulite but more significantly my blood pressure is well within normal limits now and I can tell my metabolism is better. I am not getting that slump between meals and am able to control between-meal snacking, and I have a lot of energy throughout the day rather than periods where I need to nap. I just ordered the 6 months supply. Thank you!"
