Hi, I’m Ben, YOUR Diabetes Insider. The purpose of this site is to be THE top resource on the Internet for all of your nutrition and fitness needs within the diabetes space.
I, myself, have lived with Type 1 diabetes for over 19 years and have dedicated my life to figuring out the most best way to optimize nutrition and exercise to ensure that not only your body looks and feels great, but your blood sugars are within target and your confidence in diabetes management soars.
I was diagnosed with type one diabetes one year ago, at 60 years young, and for the longest time I felt lost, hopeless, and in the dark about type one diabetes. During the time that I have been working with Ben, I have learned confidently to take back control of my life.
I can confidently say that working with Ben was one of the best decisions I have ever made. With his help, I have been able to go from 154lbs at 25% body fat to 153 pounds and 8% body fat, a goal I never believed I could achieve when I first started. While this was certainly difficult, Ben had always kept pushing me to stick to my goals and was there for me every step of the way, even when things would go off course.
I gained confidence with my eating patterns and food choices that I had never had in the past. Ben’s knowledge of nutrition, paired with his knowledge of diabetes and exercise, was a perfect combination. After years of unhealthy eating patterns, my time with Ben served as a “re-set,” and I can confidently say that I have begun to build healthy patterns once more.
I cannot speak highly enough of Ben as both a trainer and a nutrition coach. I cannot believe how far my body [shape] has gone, and even further cannot believe the strength I gained worked with him. Aside from being one of the friendliest trainers out there, Ben knows his stuff and truly wants the best for his clients
