I am a 70-year-old woman who has tried to eat well for years, but nothing I was doing was changing my bad report at my wellness exams. I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure, was pre-diabetic, overweight etc. I have fibromyalgia, osteopenia, hypoglycemia, and hypothyroidism. My doctor wanted to put me on statins for my cholesterol for months & I finally agreed to take the lowest dosage he could give me. I took two pills and just couldn’t continue because I hate drugs. I was determined to change things myself with food. So I purchased The Keto Diet book, listened to The Keto Diet Podcast as well as practiced intermittent fasting, and at my very next wellness exam, I received a glowing report! He said I should be a poster child for the elderly. No need for statins, no more pre-diabetic, blood pressure was perfect. The best part of my visit was telling him I didn’t take the drugs. He was so surprised and wanted to know what I did. Leanne is just a love and her book is so informative and written so well that even an old lady like me can understand.
