Congratulations to Magnus who is member number 50,000 and who will receive the amazing prize package shortly. This is how he found Diet Doctor:
Amazing!! And yes I did not believe it (for at least half an hour!) mainly because I hadn’t noticed the competition when I signed up.
My “story” such as it is… Shift worker most of my working life (firstly as a truck driver then as a Registered Nurse) with resulting poor eating habits/attempts at food pyramid eating.
Diagnosed hypertensive at 34 years and treated since then.
Following an extremely “good” Christmas 2009 and feeling particularly bloated under my diaphragm routine bloods should an elevated glucose tolerance test which my GP wanted to repeat.
I signed up to an online diet+exercise plan (food pyramid).
This got me results and after about 8 months I was down to 80 kg (176 lbs) with normal glucose.
I then pretty much stuck to this plan but feeling anxious about any deviations when socialising, guilty if I was missing exercise and struggling with cravings and weight maintenance.
I became aware of LCHF after listening to an Action on Sugar podcast and having read around the subject (a lot) and trying to DIY it in 2014 I signed up to an online programme which enabled me to track me intake.
This programme enabled me maintain my weight stress and craving free but suddenly stopped towards the end of last year. Since then I’ve tried LCHF books/DIY without success and a slowly increasing waistline.
I was reminded of Diet Doctor while browsing YouTube and decided to give it a closer look and sign up.
I think in short I have a general problem with portion control and need some sort of prescriptive element even for fats and proteins!
