With the loss of his mother – of whom much of his character Madea is based on – to diabetes in 2009, producer Tyler Perry urged his eight-figure fan base to strive for healthier, more faithful living in one of his weekly-distributed emails. “My mother had diabetes,” Perry wrote. “She lost her eyesight, lost her kidneys and eventually lost her life…The good news is that you don’t have to have it.”

Explaining how diabetes was a preventable disease through diet and exercise, the famous actor spoke of how angry he became sometimes when thinking about the absence of his mother despite the reversibility of the disease. “What I know for sure is that God does not make any mistakes. So, I accept His will,” he expressed.

“I gave my mother everything she ever thought she could want, but what I could not give her was her health…She accepted diabetes as her reality and it became her life and her death. She was only 64.” Asking his audience if this story was their own, Perry pleaded, “Please, don’t let your loved ones go through what my sisters, brother and I have gone through because of losing her.”

The  entire regimen has been created by people such Michele Reid.  The “Prayfit” team  was inspired to create the regiment by  following scripture this scripture: “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.” -1 Corinthians 6:19
