Here’s simply an amazing success story! After failing many times, Karen finally beat her sugar addiction and lost weight with a low-carb diet:
First of all I wanted to thank you for your website, I found it while desperately searching for a way to lose the weight I had carried around most of my life.
My name is Karen and I am 50 years old. I am, and always will be, a binge-eating sugar addict. I could not control my eating and binged on sugar and processed junk food until I was ill for most of my life. I was overweight, depressed, lonely and felt terrible all the time. I tried several weight-loss diets over the years only to gain it back… And then some.
On my 49th birthday I decided that by 50 I wanted to be healthy again and enjoy life. I started searching for diets that I could do to make that happen and came upon the Diet Doctor and realized it was all in what I was eating. I researched what sugar and high carbohydrates do to your body and it hit me why I was so overweight. I decided to change my way of eating and eat real healthy food for a change.It was amazing to see the weight fall off me while still enjoying steak using real butter to cook it with. I learned to substitute potatoes for cauliflower rice and mashed potatoes. I realized I could still eat and not feel deprived like all the other diets I had been on before.
I always will have a sweet tooth so I do allow myself sweets on occasion but not made with sugar. I learned to use low glycemic flours such as almond and coconut, and I lost all my cravings for the food that made me so overweight and sick.
On my 50th birthday I was down 102 pounds (46 kg) and never felt better. I will always eat this way and do not miss my old way of eating one bit.
Congratulations Karen – this is a truly inspirational story!
