Brief testimonial from a non-testimonialer


Recommended Posts

I am a 46 year old female in good health.  No hypertension, diabetes, good weight (I'd like to lose a few more, but you know...), etc...  I'm a pretty healthy person EXCEPT for this addiction to sugar which I have and love.  Complicate that with the fact that I LOVE to bake.  I must be in menopause as I have not had a visit from Aunt Flo since October.  Aunt Flo has not stopped by since then, but Cousin lb has been coming consistently since then.  Then comes the corona-work-from-home situation and that stress.

I went for a physical on 4/30/20. This was my Lipid panel

Total Cholesterol 262

HDL (good) 60

LDL (bad) 180

Triglycerides 101

I started Whole 30 on Sunday 5/3/20

My blood was re-drawn 26 days later.  My doc was going to put me on cholesterol meds but I asked her to check my levels again as I had been doing the Whole 30.  She said that short amount of time with a diet change would not move my levels significantly but that she would essentially humor me.  Only if my LDL got to or below 170 would I avoid meds.

My results from 5/29/20...……. drum roll.....

Total Cholesterol 232

HDL (good) 58

LDL (bad) 154

Triglycerides 93

I CANNOT believe that it really helped that significantly.

I am now mourning my ice cream at night and whatever other sweet treat I would consume daily that I completely LOVE.

Now its time for me to put my big girl britches on and figure out how to live the Resta 30!!!!!

 

Thank you Whole30 Team!!!!!

Way to go, Kim! Thanks for sharing the before and after. It's disappointing that your doctor felt it was impossible to make a life change in 30 days, that's an awful message to spread to their clients. Thank you for insisting on being "humored." I wish you well in your journey!
