Losing 70 pounds in ten months with LCHF

Fatima lost nearly 50 lbs in just a few months with low-carb and shared her story here. Now she sent me an update:

Here’s an update on my weight loss progress. I sent you a picture four or five months ago and have now lost more since then. I’m getting closer to my normal weight! LCHF has really changed my life to a much happier and healthier one!

Thank you again for you great site, full of inspiration and great advice! I will stick to this diet for the rest of my life. Please feel free to share the pictures on your site :) – show the world that LCHF really works! I started this diet in late October 2013 and a great deal has happened since then :)

Sincerely, Fatima

Here are a few more before and after pictures:

    May be scientific studies should start measuring not only health outcomes but also happiness...

    I recently visted my psychiatrist and she stressed me to drop the grains/sugar and consume MEAT/CHEESE/NUTS. I thought it was a bit "extreme" 72 hours later following her advice I feel a mood lift and feel "normal" It's tricky but whenever I feel a "sugar withdraw" I eat a table spoon of peanut butter or cream cheese and 15mins later I FEEL GOOD.

    Fatima! I don't see resemblance between your first two photographs, but one of the last two i.e 64,2kg is the prettiest. Congratulation, keep it up.

    Fatima, You look great. I just pray that I can keep this healthy living up. I have been on this new living style for 10 days now. I feel great, I just need help on some things like eggs for breakfast everyday. My stomach is not liking the eggs every day. Do anyone have any suggestions for me?

    Hey Lori, you don't have to eat eggs, if you don't want too. Nowadays I make myself a flaxseed porridge, or simply whip some cream.
