Before & after

Mary spent 18 years being obese, with illnesses, depression and general unhappiness as consequences of her lifestyle. One day, she just wouldn’t take it anymore. She decided to live a life without being a slave to sugar and reversed her type 2 diabetes. Here is her story:

The Email

I have struggled with weight since the 7th grade – I yo-yo’d between a healthy weight and a little overweight until my mid to late 20’s when I steadily started gaining year after year. I spent 18 years in the obese category, topping out at 260 pounds in early 2014.

Finally on March 3, 2014 something snapped in me and I just decided no more. Continue Reading →

Church of Dietetics Vs. Galileo… Sorry, Professor Timothy Noakes – Hearing Starts Again Today


The case of the church of Dietetics vs. Professor Timothy Noakes restarted again in South Africa today, after being postponed from the original June date.

Professor Tim Noakes – perhaps the world’s foremost advocate for LCHF for obesity and diabetes – was recently reported by the Association for Dietitians in his country. This after a tweet recommending a lower-carb diet for a child. An innocent piece of advice if you ask me.

Now there’s a big trial. Much ado about a tweet, due to fossils of the past feeling threatened by the future and overreacting. But hopefully something good will come out of this mess.

Follow the trial

You can follow the hearing on Twitter using the hashtag #NoakesHPCSA. You can also sign the petition to support him like over 17,000 people.

There are also almost live updates during the day at news24.com.

“I’m Planning to Make This a Permanent Lifestyle”

Before and after

Before and after

Carl had lost over a 100 pounds by adopting a low carb diet three times before, but he never made the change permanently. This time, he’s planning to not fall off the wagon and gain all that weight back. Together, he and his diet partner Chris have taken on the LCHF diet:

The Email


Thanks for requesting some more information about my journey to health through following an LCHF lifestyle.

In actuality, this is the 3rd time in my adult life I have lost over a hundred pounds by following a sugar free and low carb routine. I actually find low carbing easy to do and it always works for me. My past mistake has been to fall off the wagon after I reach my goal and to gain it back. Being 56 now, and for health, not vanity reasons, I’m planning to make this a permanent lifestyle. Me and my diet partner Chris have both lost close to 100 pounds at the current time. I started at 277 and my goal is about 155, as I am just 5 foot 9 inches tall. Chris started at about 360 and has a current goal of 200 for the time being. We have been on our new plan for just over 10 months. Having done this type of eating and lifestyle I am well read on the subject and I would be glad to answer questions and to help anyone out there who needs some inspiration.

I have attached a picture of my progress so far, feel free to use on your site if you like .

Thanks for your interest!

Carl Woerner
