MY NAME IS MIKE RAVEN

Hi my name is Mike Raven.

I’m aged 43, and was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes at the age of 15. I have never really had good blood sugar control and like many no doubt I have suffered hypos on a daily basis, with my sugar levels going up and down like a roller coaster. To be honest I haven’t attended all of my hospital appointments over the years. But, in the last 3 years’ l started to notice my eyes were being affected due to my poor control of Diabetes.

Like most I had an attitude of feeling sorry for myself, and that I was doing the best I could and that I would just have to live with the consequences etc.! I held this mind-set for a good number of few years

Over the years I have always tried to keep my hand into some sort of fitness, mostly weight lifting dependant on my life style and work commitments. However, I was frustrated and fed up going into the gym both with LOW/HIGH blood sugar readings and not really knowing what the hell to do.

I always did what my Doctor told me and took some form of sugar before I trained. A diabetic needs carbs to exercise, RIGHT!? (Now, I know this isn’t always the case and depends entirely on the type of exercise). To my disappointment I would always come out of the gym with a very high blood sugar and feel like crap until I gradually got it down with my insulin pen. Then again, I was always told not to take too much insulin as I had to stick to my 4 x jabs a day at meal times etc…

Confused!

Anyway around 12 months ago due to other problems in my life drink being the major one I decided to get myself a personal trainer, Scott Kempton (Mr Great Britain 2015) What a guy! He helped me out with my diet and training and took my diabetes into consideration. This gentleman really helped me out!

Diabetes Motivation
anth_bailes-diabetic-bodybuilder-2

This is where it starts to better, day by day…

I was chatting with my personal trainer about other people who body build and lift weights with Type 1 Diabetes. Scott mentioned an IFBB professional bodybuilder and Type 1 Diabetic called Anth Bailes. Upon using google – this is when I came across Diabetic Muscle & Fitness! WOW! (Where has this been all my life?)

I started to read Phil Graham’s material like a sponge, it was amazing – all his articles, videos and podcasts. The best thing about it, he spoke in in layman’s terms. He made all the complex diabetes, nutrition, training and drug stuff simple to understand.

I instantly joined the Diabetic Muscle & Fitness Training Lab and cannot explain how much this site has changed my life now and forever more moving forward. Once I became a member I had lots of joy downloading and watching all the content and material. This stuff was obviously going to change my LIFE FOREVER! There is so much of it!

After joining the Training Lab, I also bought The Diabetic Muscle & Fitness Guide, which I started reading instantly.

Honestly, I’ve so much positive things to say about Diabetic Muscle and Fitness Guide and Training Lab and not enough paper. It has changed my Life – Mental &Physical Health, Diabetic Control, Fitness, Diet and most of all the online community had helped me cope with the day to day issues of having Type 1 Diabetes.

Let me summarize by saying this…

My Diabetic Control is 100% better, even proven with my Doctor showing an awesome HbA1c. I was also told that my Cholesterol had come right down and that my medication could be lowered. RESULT! My doctor even asked me for the details of Diabetic Muscle & Fitness so that she could purchase the book herself and also have a look at this amazing material.

Being in such a good place with my health and diabetes has helped become a better person. I’ve even giving up the drink which has helped my mental health massively.

Credible advice and programmes to follow on how to gain better control around exercise. The resources teach you about the different types of fitness and exercise. This is crucial to controlling your diabetes. It’s not just a matter of ploughing down carbs every time you train or sticking to a fixed insulin regime that doesn’t accommodate changes in your lifestyle.

I understand that the best diet and exercise plan you can stick to and tweak yourself. Not always the rubbish ‘quick fix’ fat loss programs you read on the net etc.

If you live with diabetes, please educate yourself with this, because the information and help is endless.

It’s there – use it!

I am now one happy person to have Diabetes thanks to Phil Graham, John Pemberton and his amazing team of colleagues.

THANK YOU!

HOLLIE'S STORY!

Hi I’m Hollie,

Before I read Phil’s book I was frustrated at my progress in the gym because of my Type-1 Diabetes. It took my body so long to show any signs of progress.
I even ran my blood sugars high to prevent hypos in the gym, which I later found out was one of the main reasons I wasn’t making progress. At the time I thought I was doing the right thing.

Then I found Phil, and the Diabetic Muscle and Fitness Guide.

What can I say! -My outlook on diabetes, diet, training and life changed.

The first time I read it – I was stunned at the level of detail inside. I picked up so many tips about diet, training and managing my diabetes. I applied what I learnt and saw a massive improvement in my blood glucose levels, fat loss and strength.

I’ve read it a few more times since and also taken my favourite highlighter to it so I can refer back to it for keynotes.

DMF-Book-Small

I honestly can’t recommend Phil’s book enough. It’s full of knowledge and has successfully helped me and many other friends with diabetes improve their blood glucose control and overall quality of life.

Phil uses science to explain his points – it’s super interesting. He explains things in far more depth than your doctor can.

"The first time I read it - I was stunned at the level of detail inside..."

If you live with any form of diabetes you need this book regardless if you exercise or not.

Phil's book is the Diabetic’s Textbook!

I’m not a doctor or guru. However, I’m 100% confident to talk all things diabetes and getting in shape. Here’s why…

Green-tick

Green-tick

I’ve professionally studied and qualified myself in the subjects of clinical nutrition, sports nutrition, human physiology, exercise physiology and public health at university level.

Green-tick

I speak internationally as recognized fitness educator.

I’ve a strong network of health and fitness professionals to learn from.

Green-tick

I’ve competed and won many bodybuilding shows.

I’ve helped 1000s of people (with and without diabetes) get in shape and improve the quality of their lives through my personal training business.

Don’t Even Think About Buying Another Supplement, Going Paleo, Trying That New Exercise or Buying Another Month of Gym Membership Until You Read The Diabetic Muscle and Fitness Guide.

This book is a complete summary of everything I know about rapid body redesign in the diabetic body. I’ve spent years striving for mastery of this subject. All the diet, training and mindset strategies are based on real life experience, countless hours of trial and error and evidence-based study.

I have connected with some of the top researches in the world, reviewed all the most up to date diabetic research, highlighting key findings, scrutinised particular research methods (bad science does exist) and made valid suggestions for future research. Nothing has been cherry picked or talked about with the agenda of promoting a certain supplement, way of eating or training.

I’ve already done all the hard work, made all the mistakes and figured out what works (and what doesn’t). And believe me, we made some mistakes “got ripped off physically, mentally and financially” a few times along the way…

…and now I do this stuff for a living!!

The book costs less than the price of your local gym membership.

The book is suitable for all types of diabetes.  Type 1, Type 2, Gestational, diabetes MODY (Maturity Onset Diabetes of the Young) and diabetes LADA (Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults.

Yes. The book is ultra-useful for parents, relatives and friends of people who live with diabetes. Check out the Amazon reviews and see for yourself how many parents buy it for their kids.

If you’re a dedicated gym goer, the nutrition and training content alone is based on the most up to date nutrition and strength training science out there. You’ll equip yourself with all the necessary knowledge needed to shred fat and build muscle optimally.

You’ll also get a detailed overview of hormones, metabolism and how the body works during exercise. It’s super interesting.

The modern day personal trainer will find this resource incredibly valuable, as nowadays they face more clients living with diabetes (especially Type 2) than ever before. This resource will teach the fit pro everything they need to know about coaching the client living with diabetes.

The book is not a boring clinical text overloaded with scientific terms and devoid of real life experience and practical tips.

The Diabetic Muscle and Fitness Guide is not magic bullet. If you want incredible results you need to put the work in for years, not a few days! Sorry, but if you think you’re going to turn pro in a week after reading this don’t part with your money.

The book is primarily centered on diabetic bodybuilding and strength training not so much endurance training. Although I do cover exercise physiology in great detail especially how different types of exercise effect blood glucose levels. Plus, the diabetes, mindset, medication nutrition and supplement content are all super applicable and useful to any person living with diabetes competing in sport.

All the diet and training information found in this guide is supported by the most relevant scientific evidence.

I have spent a significant amount of time analyzing all the current diabetic research on health, fitness and strength training. None of the studies I’ve used to back up my claims have been cherry-picked.

Prescribing the best diet and training approach is never a matter of a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer. There is always a degree of certainty or doubt. For areas that lack research, we can only hypothesize based on what we know, using the closest available research and – where appropriate – trial and error. This is where my personal experience comes in.

Another hugely beneficial aspect of this text is the fact it’s written by a person with diabetes for people with diabetics. I can directly relate to the underlying frustration and ever-changing challenges of diabetes. Not many fitness professionals can say that!

Credible advice on diabetes isn’t easy to find. The information and advice you’ll read here will allow you to make more efficient and effective use of your time, money and effort. I know only too well how easy it is to waste these precious resources on poor information.

The effort and detail I go into here should leave you with plenty of time, spare change and energy to direct on other areas of your life. Life is for living!
