Here’s another good reason NOT to listen to your dietitian if you get diagnosed with diabetes*. A reader sent me her story:
Here’s my success story: I was diagnosed with diabetes shortly after the first photo was taken. Fortunately, I didn’t listen to the dietitian who “educated” me about what to eat. While doing research online I found a low carb forum for diabetics, where I learned about the LCHF way of eating. I wasn’t even trying to lose weight, my only thought was to normalize my blood sugar. Losing weight was a very pleasant surprise and the pounds just seemed to melt off without my ever being hungry. My family fully supported me by eating LCHF along with me and we all lost weight!
Thank you for your blog, it’s a wonderful resource!
Congratulations, anonymous reader!
