“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.

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 →

“This Is the Happiest, Healthiest and Most Energetic I Have Ever Been”

Before and after

Before and after

This is fantastic! I got an email from Derek in Australia with a husband and wife success story. The journey includes massive weight loss and numerous health benefits, including reversing infertility – and avoiding weight-loss surgery.

Derek began his LCHF journey without his wife’s support, and she was confused and afraid of the changes she started to see in him. After three months curiosity took over: Continue Reading →
