How Alec Baldwin Saved His Health with the Help of Wife Hilaria?
In her book “The Living Clearly Method,” Hilaria shares all the details that his health was “close to the brim” when she met Alec.
That time, Baldwin’s health was on edge. He was an undiagnosed pre-diabetic who could not digest even a bite of sugar without insulin disruption. Hilaria always feared that this could lead him to chronic disease.
Hilaria says that she always made a mental note as she quietly watched him eating his carbs, which weren’t good for him.
She says she felt so helpless and could only add things into a secret wish list, mentally jotting down what to tell Alec if he ever asks her.
As the two just started sating each other, Hilaria felt terrible about bringing up his bad habits into a discussion. She only kept wishing for a moment where she could point out his bad habits in front of him.
At last, Hilaria got the opportunity when Alec, on his trip to his yearly medical checkup, was told that his blood sugar is “at pre-diabetic levels,” and he has to reconsider his food choices.
“This was an alarming wake-up call,” says Alec Baldwin’s wife. This news shocked him to the core. He immediately cut out all the carbs, including pasta, bakery items, refined foods, even fruits.
Alec’s wife, Hilaria, states that this was the moment his body was looking for all this time. Together, Alec and Hilaria have started eating healthy meals.
