Pic taken Dec 08,2017. Aprox 266-275 lbs. As I look at this pic, it seems like I was like a ticking timebomb. My diet was filled with sugar and carbs. Ate 6-8 times per day. 1-4 cups of rice per meal, all the bread and pasta, Ice Cream, cakes, many many baked goods, chips and doritos. Clothes were 2-3XL. Pants 40”. I was sure I was gonna die
After the 2019 holidays. I am 208 lbs here. Taken Jan 08,2020. After my 42nd birthday. Wearing Size Large Shirt and Jacket, Size 33x30 Levi’s Pants. No joint pains. Improved quality of sleep. Everybody tells me I look younger even all the way back to college. The skin cleared . Skin tags have stopped growing. My Acanthosis Nigricans have cleared and turned fair and light. The face look healthier and not puffy. All blood work are normal. This is a good indication that I have effectively repaired my insulin level and metabolic disease through changing my nutrition. I maintained Carbs to less than 50 grams per day, No sugar. May have some Monk Fruit, Erythritol, Stevia but maybe once per week only. I still do not count calories. I consistently consume animal fat, butter, olive oils, mayo, heavy cream, eggs, almond butter, leafy greens. With all that, my Triglycerides dropped from 118 to 55. Although I haven’t exercised since November 2019. I have the energy to work 10 hr days and attend Online Coding Class for 3 hours and squeeze in to cook dinner sometimes. My resting heart rate is 62 bpms compared to 90-160 bpms when I had Afib. This new way of life (WOL) works!
