“This is the happiest, healthiest and most energetic I have ever been”

This is fantastic! I got an email from Derek in Australia with a husband and wife success story. The journey includes massive weight loss and numerous health benefits, including reversing infertility – and avoiding weight-loss surgery.

Derek began his LCHF journey without his wife’s support, and she was confused and afraid of the changes she started to see in him. After three months curiosity took over:

The Email

Good day Dr Andreas,

I just wanted to send you a quick message to thank you so much for all your amazing work. Your page was one of the big keys to my success and in turn my partner’s. After massive weight loss through LCHF we have been able to conceive after years of trying and are expecting a baby in July. We have 2 older boys, however, due to poor health from a Standard Australia Diet we were unable to conceive a third.

Our story is on www.lowcarbisland.com along with before and after pictures. If you are interested we were also featured on the front page of an Aussie Newspaper recently… that is on the ‘In The Media’ page.

Thanks again for your brilliant work.

Kind regards Derek Smith

I was determined to find the best path to optimum health and weight loss. I decided I would not YoYo again. If I was to start a ‘diet’ it needed to be sustainable for life.

After much reading I decided a Low Carb High Fat diet made the most sense to my scientific brain. I went in ‘whole hog’ on Dec 30th, 2013 and expected great things, the results however even took me by surprise.

Within the first two weeks i had noticed major changes in my well being. Full story →
