I’ve blogged about this product twice already, but I just can’t stop talking about it. Attain GC Control shake is simply one of the best products I have ever encountered in my ongoing battle against diabetes. I was diagnosed a type two diabetic in August 08. Since then my sugar levels have been all over the place. For the most part my fasting sugar has always been elevated. At one point it was in the 170′s. Through diet and exercise I was able to get it down to the upper 120′s but could never seem to get it any lower.
So what’s in this wonder product that makes it so effective? Here are the basic details:
Total Fat: 3.5g
Dietary Fiber: 7g
Soluble Fiber: 6g
It includes cinammon Bark extract, ginseng root extract, mulberry fruit extract, green tea leaf extract, sweet potato powder. It’s also gluten free. The product comes in powder form. You simply add a scoop into a cup of water and stir vigorously. And drink.
It comes in three flavors. Chocolate, Caramel Creme Brulee and Apple and cinammon. I haven’t tried the Apple and Cinammon yet, but the other two are delicious. (Note: Since writing this blog I HAVE tried the apple and cinammon flavor and it also tastes great and has proven just as effective.)
Not only does the shake lower my sugar when it’s high, but it has also lowered my fasting sugar substantially. Remember i said it was averaging in the upper 120′s and wouldn’t come down? Now it’s averaging in the low 90′s. In fact, this morning my fasting sugar was 88. This has not happened once since I was diagnosed a diabetic. I haven’t been able to walk as much as I like lately, as we’ve had a pretty cold spell. So my results are purely down to Attain GC Control shake.
Am I calling this a cure for diabetes? No, of course not. I strongly urge anyone who tries this product to keep taking any medication you are on and work closely with your doctor before making any drastic changes to current treatments. I can’t guarantee you will have the same results I’ve had but I hope you do. I’m also noticing my weight is slowly coming down by a pound or two a week. A good healthy weight loss. I also feel I have more energy. If i can help just one person to get their diabetes under control then I’ll be very happy and feel that blogging has been a worthwhile activity. Be healthy everyone.
Just as another addition: A few weeks ago we went to LA for a 12 day vacation. When we got back my sugar levels were again elevated. I hadn’t been able to take the shakes as often as I would have liked and I wasn’t able to eat as healthy as I should have. It has taken a while, but now I’m back on a decent diet and drinking these shakes regularly again, my sugar levels are once again coming back down. This just proves my point that the GC Control shake is no miracle cure. But it is an effective tool to fight against diabetes along with healthy eating and exercise.
As an update to this blog, in June my A1C was 5.8 and I was taken off Metformin. I am now drug free. I monitor my fasting sugar closely. It’s averaging in the upper 70’s to the low 80’s.
Disclaimer: While GC Control lowered my sugar when it was high, it didn’t help with my A1C. The reason I am off Metformin is because I concentrated on weight loss and on running. It is those life changes that helped me get my sugar under the control it is today. If you decide to give GC Control a try I strongly recommend you keep taking any medication you are on and consult closely with your doctor. I would also advise you to keep testing your sugar as you try this product to see what affect it is having on your sugar.
