I am a sixty three year old female, white, five foot two inches tall. I have a history of hypercholesterolemia. I inherited that along with my obesity and wrong eating patterns. I have been “doctoring” for the high cholesterol for years.
My top weight was 250 lbs and my top cholesterol was 315. A few years back the doctor put me on drugs to lower the cholesterol and I had such a bad reaction…leg cramps, swelling in ankles and pain in my knees. After trying two drugs and red yeast rice I gave up. I refused medication.
I have lost 100lbs three times in my life. This last time I went on a popular diet plan, and counted points and over the course of one year I lost 60 pounds. Still the cholesterol wouldn’t budge and the triglycerides were 422! Then my weight went back up as well.
My daughter heard about Dr. Hyman’s Blood Sugar Solution and she and I decided let’s give it a try. Well today is my 9th week. I have lost 15lbs and I cut out all sugar in ALL forms from my diet … didn’t think that would work. I eat an avocado for breakfast every morning and enjoy no hunger till lunch. BUT the confirmation for me was the blood work results that came back today.
My cholesterol is 220! The triglycerides are 95!! The HDL is 45 and the LDL/HDL Ratio is 3.5…This confirmed for me that this is a NEW way of life for me…learning to eat for my health. My weight is 171 and I have 30 pounds that I would like to lose. We have been told for years to eat all the wrong foods … not for our benefit but for the profit of many who make money by our illnesses.
