A lifelong vegetarian & daughter of a Type 1 Diabetic father (never developed a sweet tooth). Was always active, got serious in teens & a home/gym rat was born. A slip/fall 2 years ago (prior 50yr old bone density scan=above average) & 1/million odd angle landing kept me in a recliner w/ no weight for 6 months. Ankle/fibula bones had to be rebuilt - my bionic ankle. Caveat result-no more high impact. PT 6 months to fully have weight & strength to push brake pedal to drive. Summer 2020, finally could walk unassisted. Nerve, muscle damage & chronic pain = this past years' frustrating attempts to return to 'normal'. Found this amazing powder to assist my slow & steady training. Added to my diet, supplements & vegan protein, magic. A scoop in each of my daily 2 big bottles of ice water makes a of tasty not nasty sweet drink I sip thru-out day & just from 6 weeks... the added benefits these ingredients have given me- the physical energy and most importantly- mental motivation to love working out again. 2023 I WILL power walk the Disney marathon with my baby marathon runner sister.
