American Low-Carb President Coming Up?

bush-clinton

Nobody knows who’ll win the American presidential election in November 2016. But the chances are excellent for a low-carb President.

Both front-runners, the Republican Jeb Bush and Democrat Hillary Clinton, are said to be on low-carb diets to get fit for the election.

Bush is losing weight just fine, but why is he hungry? The most likely cause is he’s not eating enough fat to feel satisfied, on his low-carb Paleo diet plan.

Going LCHF could help with that and make the diet more sustainable for life. If Jeb Bush wants to speed up the weight loss I’d recommend adding some intermittent fasting, instead of suffering the relentless hunger associated with a low-fat version of low-carb.

Weight loss without hunger is great for maintaining your self discipline and willpower for other important projects. The last thing the world needs is a hungry and grumpy President of the United States.

Before and after

Karen Melo shared on the Diet Doctor Facebook page what has happened so far in six months with LCHF:

On Facebook

I just wanted to share what a LCHF lifestyle has done for me in six months. 38 lbs (17 kg) lost, PCOS symptoms greatly improved, blood pressure down and signs of inflammation are completely gone! Thank you for the information that you provide on your website!! Many medical and fitness professionals had given me very bad advice for my entire adult life, in part because they didn’t know about or understand PCOS and the impact it has on insulin. Your work in LCHF eating may very well have saved my life. Thank you, sincerely.

“I Feel Great and Strong and Life is Good”

Before and after

Before and after

What a change!

Ingegerd Salomonsson has an experience that many others share: Her obesity was associated with pregnancies. When she was young she was lean, but during three pregnancies she gained a lot of weight. More than most. She ended up weighing 309 lbs (140 kg) and probably also had type 2 diabetes.

After trying to lose weight in many ways, as early as in the 80’s she was given the opportunity to undergo weight-loss surgery (gastric banding). She lost a lot of weight – but over the years it came back. A second weight-loss surgery (gastric bypass) produced weight loss again – but again the weight began to creep back up over the years.

What do you do when not even two weight-loss surgeries solve your weight problems?

Finally Ingegerd found what worked for her – without new surgeries or medications. A lifestyle change brought all her health markers up to perfect and her weight fell back to where it was when she was young. And even though this lifestyle change is controversial her doctor approves and thinks she should continue.

Here’s her story: Continue Reading →

“I Ignored the American Diabetes Association and the Dietitians”

After

Howard decided to ignore the advice on a high-carb diet to treat his type 2 diabetes. Here’s what happened when he did the opposite instead:

The Email

In Nov 2013, my blood sugar went out of wack with an HbA1C of 16%. A friend steered me to your site. I ignored the American Diabetes Association and the dietitians with their high carb, low fat, reduced calorie intake diets. I went on a no sugar minimal carb intake (no grains, potatoes, rice, pasta, etc.). In nine months my HbA1C was down to 5.6% with the side effects of lost 55 pounds (25 kg), triglycerides dropped from 197 to 67 (2.2–0.76 mmol/l), HDL rose from 34 to 76 (0.88–1.96 mmol/l) without meds. My doctor is not a full believer so has put me on one 500 mg Metformin a day. No before, only the after.

Congratulations Howard! Continue Reading →
