Mary Tyler Moore’s Life WIth DIabetes

TV icon Mary Tyler Moore was famous for her groundbreaking role in the 1970s sitcom that bore her name, but one of her more important roles was off-screen, as a staunch advocate for people with type 1 diabetes.

The actress, who died on Wednesday at age 80, was diagnosed with the disease in 1969 when she was 33 years old.

“A blood test revealed that my blood sugar level was 750,” she explained at an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. in 2009. “Normal is between 70 and 110. And they did not know how I was still alive and walking around. But within 48 hours, I was brought back to normal, and then began the hard part, living with the disease.”

Actress Mary Tyler Moore was the international chairman of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and spoke on raising awareness and funds for diabetes research.

In an interview with CBS News in 2005, Moore admitted she had no idea what type 1 diabetes was when she was diagnosed.

“It’s a long educating process that you go through,” she said.

She called the disease a “tremendous burden” that “affects you emotionally as well as physically.” She had to get used to giving herself regular injections of insulin to keep her blood sugar levels in check.

“Mary Tyler Moore’s legacy is that of a woman who tirelessly committed herself to helping the millions with T1D,” JDRD said in a statement. “Over the past 30 years, Moore educated about and increased awareness of T1D around the world and raised millions of dollars for research that will one day lead to a cure.”

Her efforts included lobbying for diabetes research, testifying before Congress alongside children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes to share their stories with elected officials, and taking part in public service campaigns.

Following Moore’s passing, reactions from colleagues and fans across the entertainment industry began pouring in on Wednesday. Some made a point of praising her for her advocacy work.

“Mary Tyler Moore lived with diabetes and showed the world you can live a full productive life and never gave up the fight!” former tennis star Billie Jean King tweeted. King herself has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

JDRF concluded its statement by saying: “With Moore’s passing, our country has lost an advocate, a hero and a woman who ‘turned the world on with her smile’ both on and off screen.”

Diabetes Destroyer , An Inside Look

Product Description:  This product is aimed at and for Type II Diabetics.

29.1 million people or 9.3% of the population has diabetes. The number is broken down into 21 million people who have been diagnosed… and 8.1 million people walking around undiagnosed according to a recent report.  This is just in the US alone. The number is much larger if one considers the global population.

Many people do not realize just how dangerous diabetes is. It is the leading cause of kidney failure, amputations and blindness. It also sets the stage for other fatal diseases to take root.
The fact is that probably either you or someone you know and care about has diabetes.

The only consolation is that you’re not alone… but this is just a small consolation.
Diabetes can literally cripple your life… if you let it. They key point to note here is that you are in control. Diabetes is a disease that can be controlled.
In most cases, poor food choices and a sedentary lifestyle exacerbate the problem. People tend to bury their heads in the sand and expect diabetes to just go away.
It’s not happening. In fact, neglecting to arrest diabetes in its tracks is the biggest mistake you can make. You do not want to receive a wake-up call when the doctor tells you that your left leg needs to be amputated from the knee down. By then it’s too late…
So what do you do?

Simple. You do what the Diabetes Destroyer advises.
The title may seem like an exaggeration. After all, how do you destroy a disease that even doctors say is incurable?
You destroy it by controlling it to the point, it is almost reversed. You absolutely MUST get diabetes under control in order to live in peace without health issues. Correct knowledge is essential here.
It’s understandable if you’re skeptical.   The internet is littered with bogus products that claim to do miracles. It’s easy to get jaded.
However, the Diabetes Destroyer has sold thousands of copies and has become an online bestseller.   It has been one of the top rated Clickbank Product’s on their site for years.  Thousands have benefitted from this program and have successfully gotten their diabetes under control with the correct steps and measures.
The creator of the program, David Andrews, has placed a lot of emphasis on diet and lifestyle changes that will help lower one’s blood sugar levels. You’ll find an engaging video on the official website… but if you prefer reading, there is a text option where you can just read about the product and what it entails.

The Good Points:

1) You are given a meal plan that is highly effective. Let’s face the facts here. You must change your diet. You can’t control your diabetes by guzzling sodas and chomping on donuts. Something’s gotta go. You definitely need the meal plan in this program.

2) The meal plan is tasty and has variety. You really will not need to give up your favorite foods. Moderation is the mantra here. This will make compliance much easier.

3) You are taught meal timings and frequency. This is especially important for diabetes patients. Waiting too long between meals can cause insulin surges which should be avoided. Diabetes Destroyer tells you how often you should eat to keep your sugar levels stable.

4) The program has a video that shows you how to reduce insulin insensitivity. This is fantastic for helping you to lose weight. The list of foods that spike your insulin levels will guide you on which foods to avoid or consume minimally. This is priceless advice for combating blood sugar spikes.

5) Over 25,000 people have benefitted from this program. It even comes with a 60-day money back guarantee. There is no risk at all.
The Bad Points:

1) The program requires discipline and consistency. Knowledge is not enough to get diabetes under control. You MUST apply what you learn in the Diabetes Destroyer.  Diabetes Destroyer is a product aimed at Type II Diabetes.

2) You may find conspiracy theories in the guide about major pharmaceutical companies would rather treat you than cure you because of the profit motive not to your liking and you can decide for yourself where you stand… but what really matters is that you focus on the diet and lifestyle advice to get your diabetes in check.

3) With any change in life, there will always be some challenge and inertia to overcome. You will need to persevere and take positive steps to change in your life. You can do it if you want it bad enough.
Should You Get It?
If you have Type II diabetes, then you definitely should. If you know someone who has Type II diabetes and you want to help them, this program will change their life for the better.
While you could go online and do your own research, you will come across so much conflicting information that you will suffer an information overload. You need one resource that guides your from A to Z and tells you exactly what to do.
The Diabetes Destroyer does that. All you need to do is follow it. Save yourself time and effort and do what matters – get your diabetes under control with a proven program that delivers results. Time is of the essence.

I picked this up myself in May of 2016 after being diagnosed as prediabetic.    The initial product offers a over 100 page PDF Report.  It also included the Accelerated Fat burning guide as losing weight greatly aids in reducing insulin resistance. 12 videos with transcripts and several premium reports.  I purchased the upsell which has numerous additional videos with transcripts, a cookbook and more in- depth information you may wish to consider.

If you are a newly diagnosed diabetic and want a plan and a quick education on the disease and how to deal with it then I think you will benefit from this product.  The advice is consistent with my personal recomendations.

MARK’s Note:  I saw this at my local library and paged through it and was intrigued by some of the recipes I saw.  Here are the specific recipes I prepared and enjoyed:

P.142, Swiss Chard Turkey Salad with Golden Raisens and Capers. ( I used dried cranberries)

P.156 Baked Chicken with Sweet and Sour Red Cabbage

P.162 Chicken with Mustard Greens, Quinoa and Oranges

P.174, Meatballs with mushroom and spinich gravy

I recommend you have a good food processer as it will make prep easier.

These recipes are low calorie with healthy food ingredients which will satisfy you and will help you lose weight.  I look forward to trying more of these recipes.



The #1 New York Times bestselling author, chef, and healthy living expert Rocco DiSpirito returns with a revolutionary whole foods-based diet plan and cookbook featuring more than seventy-five delicious recipes and 100 color photographs.

In The Negative Calorie Diet, Rocco DiSpirito shares how simple it is to eat wholesome, delicious foods that naturally support weight loss. He calls these foods “negative calorie foods”—foods that help you to burn body fat, lose weight, and boost your metabolism. These whole foods are packed with fiber, so not only do you tend to eat smaller portions of them naturally, but you also stay fuller, longer. These nutritious superfoods offer the essential vitamins and minerals the body needs to keep your metabolism running efficiently. Some even offer what is known as a “thermogenic effect”—effectively boosting your metabolism to increase the rate at which your body burns energy. And you can eat as much of them as you want!

Rocco begins with a ten-day cleanse designed to kick-start weight loss and detox the body, preparing it to reap the benefits of a nutrient-rich, whole foods diet. Next comes the twenty-day meal plan, with step-by-step guidance to help you achieve maximum results. To make it easy, Rocco gives you more than seventy-five recipes for meals, snacks, smoothies, and desserts that use his Top 10 Negative Calorie Foods: almonds, apples, berries, celery, citrus fruits, cruciferous vegetables (such as cauliflower and Brussels sprouts), cucumbers, leafy greens (including Swiss chard, spinach, and kale), mushrooms, and nightshade vegetables, including peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, and more.

Complete with grocery shopping lists, troubleshooting FAQs, a guide to dining out, and advice for adapting the plan for kids and families as well as vegetarian, gluten-free, and low-sugar lifestyles, The Negative Calorie Diet helps you build healthy habits to lose weight and achieve better health for a lifetime.

The Link Between Diabetes and Stress

Many people know that excess weight or body fat puts them at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. But one of the factors that can increase one’s risk of developing this disease is stress. Stress puts your body into fight or flight mode. So, as a result, hormones like adrenaline and cortisol rise and this can impact your glucose levels.   Also blood pressure increases.  If you are diabetic you need to be aware that stress can cause your blood sugar to rise and can cause even further insulin resistance.  I personally use brain wave entrainment audios to help me reduce my stress levels.  Also physical exercise and as Tim points out in the video gaining a proper perspective about lifes issues helps.  Also a physical injury such as a fall or a car accident can cause stress levels to rise and can cause a rise in your blood sugar.
