I received an email from Amanda, who is on a massive weight-loss journey with LCHF. Here’s her story:
Someone directed me to your website from a LCHF Facebook group I’m a member of. I started low carb in November of last year at 364 pounds (165 kg). I’m 5’10” (178 cm).
Now I’m at 255 lbs (115 kg). Went from a size 24 to a 12/14. I still have a long way to go but my progress thus far amazes me.
I’ve always been a yoyo dieter. I also bought into the low-fat fad and didn’t realize I was gaining weight (I feared scales).
Anyhow, I’m attaching some photos of before, during, and now. As I said, I have a long way to go but I’m appreciative of a doctor supporting a way of eating that actually works.
Although I’ve never had many legitimate health problems that are weight related, my blood pressure now runs on the low side and my heart rate runs in the 50s and 60s rather than the 90s.
Wow. This is a fantastic start to your journey Amanda. Congratulations and keep up the good work!
