About Jon

After having a diabetic heart attack and being told he must take a cocktail of medications for the rest of his life just to manage his diabetes, Jon McMahon began searching for answers. 

Jon set out on a quest to get to the heart of the problem underlying the epidemic, and what he found shocked him. If both diabetes and obesity can be prevented and reversed by simple lifestyle choices, why was it so hard for him and others to make these changes? What was at the heart of the self-destruction in our modern world?

What he found was shocking, and he realized it needed to be shared with the world–before it was too late. The result? iThrive: Rising from the Depths of Diabetes and Obesity–and the emergence of Jon’s life purpose to be an ally and advocate especially for children worldwide who are unaware of and unprepared for the threats our modern environment poses to their health, the future and their happiness. 

Jon’s new mantra? Together We Thrive!
