“I Love the Low-Carb Diet”

Challenge

So far this year more than 44,000 people have signed up for FREE guidance, meal plans, recipes, shopping lists, troubleshooting tips, etc., via the two-week low-carb challenge.

What could happen if you were to take it? Here’s feedback from this week. Note that due to an earlier glitch that stopped people from signing up – fixed now – there were fewer completers than usual this week:

Hi Dr Andreas,

I love the low-carb diet, I lost 2kg in 7 days. I’m not a big cheese eater, so I kinda of got tired of eating some of the meal with cheese, I would some times swap the meals around for instance I would swap monday meal with Tuesday. The only thing I failed is I ate at least one cup of cashews today. I was not hungry at all, I saw them there and they are my favourite nuts, so i needed to have some, I’m not happy with myself for doing that.

Anyway I am still sticking to the 2wks challenge. Just so you know as part of this challenge, I am only consuming one meal a day. I’ve never eaten breakfast and lunch, I only ate supper. But I would never loose weight. But now I’ve lost 2kg since I’ve started and I’m not feeling hungry to eat any starchy food or sweets, like bread, fruits etc. Even, though I gave in for the cashew nuts :)

Would exercise fast track weight lost on low carb diet? [Yes, it can help. /Andreas]

By the way I’m still taking my vitamin C’s, B vitamins and Magnesium. Magnesium has very low lactose in it, would that affect my low carb challenge? [Probably not. /Andreas] because, I really want to stick to no sugar.

Regards
Margaret

“Can You Tell That I’m Slightly Excited?”

Heather’s health had been “going to shit for a few years now”. She had type 2 diabetes, and despite following the dietary advice she got and “taking my meds like a good girl”, things were not improving.

Then she found something. She found Dr. Jason Fung’s videos online. She started an LCHF diet, she started fasting. And then…

By the end of my first week of following a low carb, high fat (LCHF) diet, with some alternate day fasting thrown in, I literally felt better than I had in DECADES! My blood sugar almost immediately fell into normal levels, my energy levels shot through the roof, and the fog that had lived in my head so long I thought it would never leave was GONE.

At that time I was on 40mg a day of Paxil… today I on my 4th day of being anti-depressant free – something I previously had resigned myself would never happen (I’ve also been doing CBT and talk therapy since the spring, and will continue as needed). My IBS issues that kept me inside the house more than I care to mention? GONE.

Can you tell that I’m slightly excited?

… and 17 pounds gone, fyi.

Why an Orthopedic Surgeon Recommends an LCHF Diet

Why are some people obese and some people thin, despite eating the same things? That’s what orthopedic surgeon Christopher Gorczynski asked himself when a couple walked in to his clinic one day, and the wife was heavy while the husband was thin. Despite the fact that they ate the same foods!

After some research, including reading The Big Fat Surprise by Nina Teicholz, Dr. Gorczynski realized that the weight loss advice that he was giving his patients – eat less, exercise more – simply didn’t work. Instead, he tried an LCHF diet on himself, and 25 pounds (11 kg) melted off. He also lost his hypertension and his migraine headaches!

YourorthoMD: Dr. Gorczynski’s Recommended Diet

It’s great to read that more and more medical professionals are starting to realize that the advice that has been given to patients for decades not only is outdated, but also completely wrong.

Is your doctor recommending an LCHF diet yet?

“It’s Like You Eat and You Lose Weight, Who Would Have Thought of It?”

Before and after

Before and after

Varun had been of normal weight as a young man, but things changed when he started working and stopped being physically active, while still eating carb-rich foods. The weight piled on, regardless of several attempts to keep it off.

Then his uncle gave him the book Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes. The very same day he decided to throw out all bad food and start eating LCHF. Here’s what happened. Continue Reading →

I have been eating LCHF for 3 years but was starting to gain a few pounds so I wanted to look at the menu plan to see if I could tweak my menu to help me. At the same time I am a member of your site (kinda addicted! Lol) and have been studying IF & have been doing a 16:8 and have lost those extra pounds I had gained in about 2-3 weeks! I think this gal is gonna not be eating breakfast anymore! That is so simple for me! Also I realize now, after looking at your site that I wasn’t eating enough fat & the “carb creep” had accidentally snuck in!

Thank you for your site! It has made a huge difference in my life but most importantly my husband’s who WAS T2D 3 years ago but we reversed it with going against his drs & eating LCHF. I appreciate all the recipes that you provide to help me give variety to our menus–it helps us to keep going, doing the right thing for him!
