Fitlife Foods Raises $5,000 for Juvenile Diabetes Research

Fitlife Foods, the leading Southeastern independent retailer of healthy, fresh-prepared meals, hosted its first-ever annual FitLine event and raised $5,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) on Friday, October 9.

“Sometimes your daily allowance of awesomeness goes beyond amazing ingredients and the best, fresh, made-from-scratch prepared meals," says David Osterweil, founder and CEO of Fitlife Foods. "Sometimes it means screaming 25 feet above downtown city blocks for 100 yards for an amazing cause.”

Approximately 2,000 thrill seekers and community members in need of their "daily allowance of awesomeness" had the opportunity to zip-line down Franklin Street in downtown Tampa, Florida.

Two 100-yard zip lines, 25 feet high, were featured and people were able to zip directly through the heart of downtown. Adults and children alike enjoyed soaring above the city and climbing a rock wall or enjoying Fitlife Foods snacks and beverages provided by Michelob Ultra and Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

It was an enjoyable day and the team at Fitlife Foods was excited to share the Fitlife lifestyle with the community and attendees, while raising awareness about Type 1 diabetes.

“On behalf of everyone living with Type 1 diabetes, we truly appreciate this donation from Fitlife, which will help fund our mission to treat, cure, and prevent Type 1 diabetes,” says Carolyn Boos, executive director of JDRF Tampa Bay Chapter.

So much money. I was diagnosed with type 2 Diabetes and put on Metformin on June 26th, 2014. I started the ADA diet and followed it 100% for a few weeks and could not get my blood sugar to go below 140. Finally i began to panic and called my doctor, he told me to get used to it. He said I would be on metformin my whole life and eventually insulin. At that point i knew something wasn't right and began to do a lot of research. On April 13th I found this book on I read the book from end to end that night because everything the writer was saying made absolute sense. I started the diet that day and the next morning my blood sugar was down to 100, the next day was in the 90's and now i have a fasting blood sugar between Mid 70's and the 80's. My doctor took me off the metformin after just one week of being on this lifestyle change. I have lost over 30 pounds in a month. I now work out twice a day and still have tons of energy. I have lost 6+ inches around my waist and I am off my high blood pressure medication too. I have about 20 more pounds to go till my body finds its ideal weight. The great news is, this is a lifestyle I can live with, it makes sense and it works. God Bless the writer. I wish the ADA would stop enabling consumers and tell them the truth. You can get off the drugs, you can help yourself, but you have to have a correct lifestyle and diet. No more processed foods.
