Low Carb Success Story - Denise


Denise has gone from 267 to 232 pounds, and at age 53 she is not being helped by her metabolism! Read how the low carb lifestyle helped Denise find success and maintain her new healthy weight.

Name: Denise

Starting weight: 267 lbs
Current weight: 232 lbs
Ideal weight: Realistically 185 ( I am 53 )

What fears did you have before beginning your low carb diet?
Hardening of the arteries due to eating too much meat; constipation, maybe the diet will not work.

What foods did you miss when you began?
spaghetti; macaroni and cheese; cornbread stuffing; french fries from McDonalds

What foods became your favorite on this diet?
spinach and bacon quiche; vegetable and cheese casseroles; melted cheeses dishes with meat; in and out double, double protein;

Did you have any bad reactions to overcome?
fatigue until I started to take vitamins; not enough energy to really exercise; constipation

How long did it take you to get to your current weight?
7 months

How long have you been low carbing total?
7 months

Do you find this to be easy? Hard?
Easy - only because I really researched it and found the tasty, more healthy foods that are close to my normal way of eating. I even enjoy a drink or two now and then. Flavored orange vodka (0 carbs) with lowcarb pinapple orange juice (4 grams carbs per 8 oz) ( I think by Carbdown)

What suggestions do you have for others who are thinking about low carb?
Note to all the other struggling volumptous women and men: The low carb diet is basically a diet you create for yourself. Our bad habits of eating have taught us to eat double decker burgers; pastrami; ice cream floats, etc. You can eat them on low carb. no bread on the burgers and pastrimi, replace with iceberg lettuce; they have great low carb ice cream to make diet Pepsi or Coke floats ummmmm. So see, we are losing weight and not giving up our foods.
