“Both my wife and I are feeling better than ever”

Tobias

Before and after

Tobias gained weight in a “steady pace” since he was 25 years old. Then he decided to try low carb

The E-mail

Hello!

I’ve been interested in low carb and have followed DietDoctor for a long time. Andreas’ book The Food Revolution truly convinced me a couple of years back. But I never really felt like following the advice alone.

My weight has piled up on me in a steady pace since I was about 25 years old. This year I’ll turn 43. At Christmas time this year the scale showed that I weighed over 100 kg (220 lbs). Suitably, I found the 2-week challenge at DietDoctor around that time and I got my wife to participate together with me. She didn’t need to lose weight but I needed her support, and it has made a great difference in comparison to all my previous attempts trying to stop the weight gain.

Since we did the challenge at DietDoctor for almost precisely half a year ago I’ve lost 16 kg (35 lbs) and it doesn’t seem as though I’ll plateau there, in about six months I believe I will be of “normal weight”. Both my wife and I are feeling better than ever. We will without a doubt continue eating LCHF for the rest of our lives. One tip is to get organic meat in a big package straight from a farm.

Thank you to all you people at DietDoctor, you contribute to a better world!

Best,
Tobias

    What exactly did your wife do to support you?

    We eat the same foods which helps a lot. I don't know if I could have kept going with this if she hadn't done it too. It's so easy to fall back in old behaviors.

    So true Tobias. Congratulations on your success. I'm glad you have support. Looking forward to an update in the future. Maybe one day I'll share my story too. I love reading and seeing these success stories on dietdoctor.com. Keep up the good work!
