“A new me with lots of life”

Before and after

Before and after

Julie developed more and more health issues over the years, and the low-fat diet which her doctor put her on just contributed to the problem.

Then in December, a friend introduced her to the Diet Doctor site and low-carb, and decided to jump right in. Can you guess what happened to her health issues and weight?

The E-mail


I am in my 70’s and over the last few years have developed more and more health issues, such as fatty liver, chronic sinusitis, which lead to major surgery, chronic arthritis, which lead to two major operations. I felt old and everyday life was an issue as I was permanently on pain medication for chronic pain. I was developing memory issues and becoming very forgetful, which was a major concern for me. My doctor some years ago put me on a low-fat diet, and I just kept getting bigger and bigger!

Well, last December a friend introduced me to the Diet Doctor website, and I decided to give it a go! Well within a few months I was no longer taking pain medication, I was able to walk free of pain and do more exercise. Within five months I no longer had fatty liver issues or chronic sinusitis (which I had had to treat every day). My arthritis was no longer an issue – yes the deformity is still there but free of the inflammation and pain. As for my memory, well that is amazing, so much more clarity and memory issues are age appropriate again!

Now nine months have past and I have gone from strength to strength, having lost 20 kg (44 lbs) so far. I still have another 10 kg (22 lbs) to go to reach my goal of 70 kg (154 lbs) but I know that that will happen.

This diet is so easy to follow, I stick to the strict low-carb high-good fat at the moment and rarely feel any hunger. I have learned, and continue to learn, from your posts and the other webpages that I have tapped into. Next May my friend and I will be going on the Low-Carb Cruise to meet some of the people who have helped to change my life.

I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for me, this is a new me with lots of life to live now thanks to you.
