Doing the Impossible on a Ketogenic Diet

Before and after

Before and after

Here’s yet another example of someone doing the impossible – reversing type 2 diabetes, obesity and other health problems – using only a ketogenic diet.

This is the story about how Wim and his wife Saïda turned their lives around:

The blog post

We are Wim and Saïda Tilburgs from the Netherlands, and this is our story. It tells how Wim lost 40 kg (88 lbs) and reversed all the symptoms of type 2 diabetes. Along the way, he solved most of the symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) which he developed after serving at the UN mission in Lebanon.

Our story tells how Saïda lost 20 kg (44 lbs) and reversed all her symptoms of painful osteoarthritis and inflammation. We have done so only with a ketogenic low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) diet.

Wim's bloodwork

Here are the numbers for my blood work. You can see that my HbA1c went from 11.4% to 8.7% with high doses of insuline and metformin. On a ketogenic diet from 8.7% to 5.4%. Standard of care made me obese and still a diabetic at high risk. The ketogenic diet reversed my T2 diabetes. Keep reading

Untitled-6

John was very reluctant to try LCHF, despite his friends trying to make him convert to a low-carb lifestyle. He had tried so many diets and none of them had worked. He had resigned to be overweight and have type 2 diabetes.

He also suffered from anxiety and panic attacks, something that has caused him pain throughout his life.

But after a blood work came back bad, he decided to try low carb anyways. That was the start of his new life. Continue Reading →

“To See Your Child Shine with Happiness Is Just an Amazing Feeling”

lilboy1

Here’s another sweet story about getting rid of sugar:

Last year January my husband and I were talking about how much weight our son had put on in just the past year. Evaluating what he eats and drinks and how much exercise he gets in.

Extremely occasionally junk food, sweets cookies and so on. No soft drinks or coffee. We always ate veggies, meat, fish, the usual. He loves veggies.

I came across a video called lard makes you lean. After a good giggle I watched it and found more related videos.

Well smack me silly if we don’t realize right there how wrong we have been.

All the fruit, fruit juices, iced tea, provitas, low fat yogurt, pronutro, we’re all WRONG!!!!! 😱

We took on the LCHF NO SUGAR way of life and it changed us all forever. Continue Reading →
