Terry is a 45-year-old male who is 5’5’’ in height, weighs 250 lbs., and has 39% body fat. He works as a construction carpenter five days per week.

Every morning he begins his day with a breakfast consisting of two cups of coffee. For lunch, he usually eats two slices of pepperoni pizza and a large soda. A couple hours later, he will have a small bag of chips and an energy drink for snack. For dinner, he usually stops at the drive thru of a fast food restaurant and orders a combo meal that consists of a hamburger, fries, and a large soda. At night, he snacks on a few packaged cookies and drinks a beer while watching TV. He averages six hours of sleep per night.

Terry’s mother and sister have both been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and he is worried that he may also be at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. He recently went to the doctor to learn more about his current health conditions. He found that his blood pressure was 140/90 and his blood test results revealed the following:

Total cholesterol: 233 mg/dl

LDL cholesterol: 122 mg/dl

HDL cholesterol: 32 mg/dl

Triglycerides: 259 mg/dl

A1C (blood glucose): 6.3%
