“I lost 30 pounds and I have a more consistent feeling of higher energy throughout the day with little or no afternoon slump.”
“Erin’s class was just what my wife Cindy and I needed. A few habits and health issues were causing me some concern and the information I learned confirmed what I had been suspecting for some time. The class gave us both the jolt we needed to make changes in our eating. Over the years, I had accumulated four or five prescriptions. With some research, I started to suspect that one drug was leading to another. I was taking a statin, a few medications for high blood pressure, something for heartburn/reflux, and most recently Metformin for type 2 diabetes. Then doctors discovered polyps in my colon and I was having IBS symptoms! What next? I discovered that the statin can lead to diabetes and the Metformin can mess with your colon!
“I experienced good results from a few years of following Erin’s recommendations of low carb eating. With some reading, my wife’s encouragement, and Erin’s advice, I quit all my prescription drugs. I just quit all of it! My doctor does not know all of this, yet. My next appointment is soon, but from my point of view, it’s going great! My blood glucose is almost normal—I test it often at home to monitor how my body is responding to certain food. I don’t know about my cholesterol, but I’ve learned that the whole statin obsession is more about making money and managing numbers than building health.
“I don’t have reflux anymore—I started intermittent fasting, and I don’t eat as much. I have lost over 30 pounds. That in turn improves all the numbers. My blood pressure still seems to run a bit high, but more exercise and sticking with real food should continue to bring that down. I have a more consistent feeling of higher energy throughout the day with little or no afternoon slump. I am in my late 60s and, all in all, I’m feeling better than ever. Hopefully, my doctor will agree, and give more credit to building health rather than managing illness!” — Steve Nelson
