Which of these two men lives dangerously?

Before and after

Before and after

Is eating a low-carb diet dangerous? Sometimes you can only smile at the unscientific fear-mongering that can still be seen occasionally in the media.

Take a look at the pictures and read Kent’s story. Then ask yourself, which of the two men above seems to live dangerously?


Up until May 4th, 2013, I weighed almost 230 lbs (104 kg). I had to take antihypertensive medications and medications for constant heartburn. I had previously undergone surgery for umbilical hernia. I had constant pain in knees and shoulders. I also didn’t manage to go for longer walks than necessary without becoming exhausted.

Then I finally made a resolution to try LCHF. The hard part was freeing myself from sugar, but after that it went really well. There is so much good stuff to eat if I really want to change my diet. This has also improved my sleep, and I haven’t been sick a single day since the start. Now, nine months later, I weigh 183 lbs (83 kg).

Today I enjoy what I see in the mirror and I feel better than ever. So, if my symptoms sound familiar – give LCHF  a try.

Take care and be well.

Sincerely, Kent

God job, Kent, congratulations!

    if only more people would just try this diet, they too could be happier.

    Nice one Kent :-) ... glad you took up the challenge to make beneficial changes. It's sooooo! good to see your results! Gotta say though, your "new physique" is gonna need some new figure hugging yummy (leather?) motorbike riding clothes for showing off in.

    The title reminded me of my health-change summary "My year of living less dangerously" at https://plus.google.com/+RandalLSchwartz/posts/48f3EsxzoMa

    Would be interesting to hear your PoV on this article and 'study', Dr Eenfeldt:

    PeteC, regarding the article in the telegraph and other places today, a LCHF diet does not have to be high protein.
