Here’s her story:

The Email


I want to thank you for the great inspiration from your website.

I started LCHF about 2 years ago and have lost 68 lbs (31 kg)! I’ve always had GI issues, bloating and sometimes terrible cramps, and often had to stay home from work.

Since I started LCHF, I haven’t had any GI problems and I’ve probably only had two or three sick days due to common illness in two years.

When I embarked on this I made sure that this would not be a diet, but a new lifestyle. It’s not complicated to go out for lunch as I often do, just skip the carbohydrates :)

I’ve finally also been able to start exercising, mostly running for me. A year ago I when I tried to run I almost died after a minute. Nowadays, I run three times a week and have reached my goal of running 10 km!

Thank you again Diet Doctor for my new lifestyle!


Congratulations on your fantastic health and weight improvements, Patricia!

Getting rid of GI issues like bloating and cramping is one of the most common side effects of an LCHF diet, but it’s still always great to hear about it.
