A friend of mine introduced me to LCHF by giving me The Protein Power Life Plan by Drs. Michael and Mary-Dan Eades. I jumped on board immediately. Cleaned out my cupboards, fridge and pantry and started of anything with wheat, grains sugar and vegetable oils. I applied what I learned and went cold turkey, no weaning. The first week I list 7lbs. I continued to lose a pound a day for a month.
I was down 60lbs in 3 months. I am now down 92lbs and keeping it off. I no long have High blood pressure, my pre-diabetes is gone, asthma gone, haven't been sick in almost 3 years since starting LCHF. I am healthier than I have ever been.
The new Michael.
