[16:23] This episode’s Feeling Good Superhero is Manuel. Manuel came to see us a few years ago and he was really struggling with his blood sugar. He was have neuropathy issues in his feet and was not in good shape at all. We talked to him about cutting out the simple carbs and white foods and changing his diet. He was on several medications at that time as well. Fortunately, Manual listened and did what we recommended. Over a period of a few months it was amazing to see the changes in him. His blood sugars became normal again, his nerve pain subsided, he lost quite a bit of weight, and he was able to reduce his medications. He went from barely surviving to thriving. If you are like Manuel and in that condition now, get started today so you can experience the same changes in your life. If we can help you, please reach out to us. Make the changes you need to make, just like Manuel.
