Low Carb Success Story

Print Friendly

 

I’m thinking Netrition should send me a few bucks for this post. They’re not gonna, but they really oughta.

This is my husband David’s low carb success story. He’s very quick to brag on me and try to credit his success to my cooking. However, he deserves the credit for himself. He has been dedicated to low carb eating as a lifestyle, not just a diet. For nearly two years, he has eaten low carb on normal days, on vacation, and during holidays. The awesome part is, he hasn’t been deprived in doing so. If you look at the pictures above, I think you’ll see that he honestly enjoyed his low carb peanut butter pie more than the traditional version. (By the way, that recipe is coming soon and it’s soooo good.)

When people ask David how he’s lost so much weight, the conversation invariably leads to bacon. :) This in turn leads to people to ask, “But what about your cholesterol?” Or, “Aren’t you afraid of eating all that fat?”  In a word, no, he isn’t. With his permission, I am including some of his vital statistics.

I also want you to know that he was able to stop taking acid reflux medication and high blood pressure medication. His blood pressure used to be in the 140’s/90’s with medication. Now his blood pressure is 130’s/low 70’s without medication.

So, honey, keep up the good work and I’ll keep buying bacon in 5 pound slabs.

  1. Congratulations to your husband and yourself for helping him on his LC journey. It’s people like you two that help those of trying to accomplish the same good results by living the LC lifestyle. Keep up the good work!!!! Both of You.

  2. Awesome site! So glad I stumbled upon it, your recipes are inspiring me to get creative in the kitchen while on LC! I’ve lost 20lb in 2 months so far, have another 10-15lb to go, and I have NO interest in going back to my old eating habits! Just before starting LC I gave low-fat one more chance… I was constantly hungry, had dizzy spells, etc. It was terrible! I had lost 20lb in the past for my wedding in 2003, but gained it all back when my weakness for leftover wedding cake took over. Now 3 babies (and a few pounds) later, I’m ready to get my old self back again. I was hoping to ask a favor, though: pleeeeeeease post your peanut butter pie recipe ASAP! My birthday is coming up at the end of June, and I WANT IT!!! Thanks ;)

    1. Lisa,
      Sounds like you’re off to an awesome start. LC is definitely the only way to go. I’ll make a point to get the peanut butter pie posted as soon as possible. It should be up in less than a week. I hope you enjoy it. Good luck!
