Doris: Acid reflux, acne, tremor gone!
Doris shared the photos and some of the many health benefits she experienced while living the Wheat Belly lifestyle:
“I started my journey March 28th, 2014. I’m just shy of turning 48 years old. I began this lifestyle change to lose weight but have since changed my outlook.
“In 2012, my doctor wanted to put me on cholesterol medication. Thankfully, he gave me time to get it fixed with diet. He advised me to continue with my low fat eating! I had already been doing this for years, falling on and off the wagon and binging until I hurt and couldn’t sleep from going to bed with a tummy so full.
“I worked out in challenge groups, limited my fat and calories, bought shake meal replacements and was starving an hour later. I stopped this insanity immediately when I began my Wheat Belly journey.
“I noticed the change in my first month. I had tried so many different products for acne, I thought I’d be 70 years old, still buying an abundance of products to clean my skin. My acne disappeared immediately. I’ve taken so much medication for upper GI irritation for 20 years. I haven’t taken any Nexium in the last year. For years I had a really bad tremor. It was embarrassing, but I thought it was something I had to live with. A few months after changing my way of eating, my tremor was gone. My cholesterol and blood sugar are all normal now, tested six months after I gave up the grains. My proudest accomplishment is not overeating. I was embarrassed by how much I used to eat. I sent my husband to the store one day to buy me chocolate cake for breakfast and I ate the whole thing in one sitting. Now if I’m in a social setting, at a party I watch my friends reload their appetizer plates over and over and I bite my tongue.
“The photo of me in black was taken the month prior to going grain-free. I was struggling with my weight. Up and down 10 lbs, no matter how much exercise I did. I was sleepless and forcing myself out of bed to do my morning workout before work. Everything was low-fat and I was obsessed with eating my next meal or having cheat days.
“This photo of me in pink was taken in April, 2015. I no longer struggle. I travel, I do have to eat out on vacations, but I make good choices. I don’t fear trying on my jeans when I get home from vacations. I keep my carbs extremely low and I know that any variation in my weight will be back to normal within days.
“For the first time in my life, I’m confident I will be healthy and medication-free for many years to come. I’m blessed to be a grandmother who will live to be a healthy great grandmother one day.”
