Prediabetes is a diagnosis that indicates your health is on the wrong
If you've been diagnosed with prediabetes, it is likely you suffer from one or more of these problems:
The diagnosis of prediabetes is a call to action. It is time to change the path you are on and regain control of your health, so you can live to your full potential.
Cost of Prediabetes
proper treatment now, if you have prediabetes you have a 10-50% risk of
converting to type 2 diabetes within 5 years. Unfortunately, a
diagnosis of diabetes carries significant cost:
proper treatment now, you continue on the path to type 2 diabetes. You continue on the path toward decreased energy, increased risk of heart disease and stroke, decreased productivity, and decreased vitality.
However, there is a way to change...
Change is Possible
Prediabetes is treatable with lifestyle. The best study of diabetes prevention found that a consistent program of exercise and weight loss reduced the risk of developing diabetes by 58%. But studies also show most people find it difficult to make lifestyle changes last over the long term.
I have been in practice as an endocrinologist for over 15 years, and I've seen time after time how people struggle to make their lifestyles more healthy. I would speak with my patients in clinic about losing weight or exercising more consistently. Often they would be able to make changes that lasted for a few weeks or even a few months, but then they would slip into old habits.
As I then looked at my own life, I saw this same pattern emerge. I might decide to improve myself in some area - eat a more nutritious diet or be better father, for example - and I could make initial progress, but then I would slide back toward where I started.
I decided there has to be a reason, and there has to be a better way to change.
Through my training and research in areas of psychology, cognitive science, and human behavior, I realized the following:
What stops people is rarely lack of knowledge.
What stops people is lack of action.
Because of how our brains are wired, we don't always make decisions the way we "know we should." Don't beat yourself up if this applies to you, as this is normal and very common. Think about your own life. Have you ever enthusiastically started a new program, perhaps you even had great progress for a few weeks, but then something happened and your program fizzled out?
Something is missing from most programs. Most programs give us knowledge, but they don't help us actually apply that knowledge consistently so we can be successful. In order to make consistent progress, you need a system that will help
you overcome the obstacles that keep you from success.
I designed the Blueprint for Reversing Prediabetes to help you overcome these obstacles.
The Blueprint has 2 components:
Optimal Metabolism teaches you the fundamentals you need to have your metabolism working at its best. By focusing on the 3 pillars of metabolism - Quality Movement, Quality Nutrition, and Quality Sleep - you can return your body to the high-functioning level at which it was designed to work. Optimal metabolism discards the hype and nonsense so prevalent in the internet health industry to give you the key strategies you need to focus on to be successful.
Optimal Mindset is specifically designed using principles of neuroscience, cognitive science, human behavior, and psychology to teach you how to notice what is influencing your behavior, grow in your understanding of yourself, and use this information to proactively set yourself up for success, and then successfully
troubleshoot when difficulties arise, so that you make consistent progress toward your goal.
"Dr. Fox has done the reading, the research and has nicely summarized the supporting data into 6 weekly presentations. Each weekly topic gave me important information and tools to help me reach my health and weight loss goals.... I found the process to be motivating and know the training and material will continue to be useful for not just weight loss but for addressing other personal growth issues. No more fad diets for me, although I don’t think there is one I haven’t tried!"

"I am writing this to HIGHLY recommend Dr. Topher’s course Pre-diabetes 101. If you are pre-diabetic and are ready to do something about it, or you are pre-diabetic and don’t think you are ready to do something about it, take this class.
In my case, Dr. Topher Fox was ‘sent’ to me. I am Kahnawakeronon (American Indian), and ‘asked’ that I find help to reverse my physical direction towards living with diabetes. I KNOW that most, if not all, physical imbalances are reversible; changeable; but the challenge is having the right advise -direction to follow.
For me, I had gained a lot of weight, had lots of stress at work in the last few years, and finally ended up with having a blood draw that came back showing that I was in the pre-diabetic range. I went on-line to look for information and immediately found Dr. Topher. Interestingly, he had started to put his course together just at same time I needed help. It saved me in that there is so much information out there, much of which is conflicting... but when you find the truth you will know it, and Dr. Topher’s course has the truth, really has everything, and more than you thought you needed, to go forward with a solid plan to reverse your pre-diabetic (temporary if you want it to be! ) condition. By the way, I am a veterinary epidemiologist and so I appreciated the graphs and his showing the science behind what he is telling you, and he tells it a clear and understandable way.
To cut to the chase.... I was shocked to find out that in about a six week period my blood draw came back in the normal range! I almost hesitate to tell this, as I do not want to create unrealistic expectations for those of you reading this, however I do want you to know what is possible, and that it absolutely possible to change YOUR health direction and revert to a normal metabolic state.
The most important thing I can tell you I think ... is not to be afraid of signing up for this course... take one step... and see where it goes from there... truly wishing you all good health.... we ALL need to be in good health, when we move towards healing ourselves it is a move towards healing Mother Earth for all our relatives, as well as for the faces (generations) yet to come."

I am committed to combining endocrine science, psychology, personal development, and encouragement in new and creative ways to help people make meaningful, lasting changes in their health and vitality.
I am passionate about helping people learn how to unlock the potential in their health to better love those around them and produce good things for the world! Over and over I've seen people unable to reach their true potential because they've become trapped in situations of fatigue, ill-health, and despair.

When I am not working with clients I love to spend time outside riding my bike, running, or hiking, or just hang out with my wife and 2 teenagers. And I love to read. A lot. Maybe too much.
Letter from Dr. Topher
Dear Potential Student,
Thank you so much for checking out the course! Please enjoy the introductory lectures as a free preview. They will outline the "Blueprint" for you - Optimal Metabolism and Optimal Mindset. There is a special video that explains Optimal Mindset and why it is critical - this is the piece missing from most programs, the piece that will help you achieve the results you desire and deserve, but perhaps have eluded you in the past. The Blueprint was designed to help you access your hidden strength to make a real transformation in your health.
I am passionate about helping people just like you to make changes to reverse prediabetes. I've seen seen many people with great intentions hit roadblocks that keep them from progress, and I've studied the patterns that lead to those roadblocks, and how to get past. There are patterns, and there are ways past.
I hope you will take heart that there is a path to success. If you've made it all the way to this website, then you are ready to change! You are already in the small subset of people who know they want to change their health and you have already taken action. Please don't let this be your last step. Remember, what keeps people from success is rarely lack of knowledge; what keeps people from success is lack of action.
My promise to you is that if you take this next step, enroll in the course, and you commit to doing the work - watching the videos, doing the exercises, and using the Blueprint in your life - you will transform your health. Aren't you tired of making plans to get healthier, and then finding you are just not doing what you should? Aren't you tired of feeling your metabolism must be broken? Please, make this small investment in your health, enroll now, and get ready to reverse prediabetes.
Next enrollment period begins Spring 2019
