"Living the Low Carb Way of Life Has Set Me Free" - Melissa Riley
My biggest success is losing 85kgs through living the Low Carb way fo life. I was overweight all my life. At a young age, I can remember always being on a diet. Nothing ever worked for long. I would lose some weight, then plateau, get disheartened and pile on more weight. By the time I was in my 30s, I had reached a massive 150kgs and had one foot in the grave. My liver wasn't functioning properly, I had Type 2 Diabetes, High Cholesterol, High Blood Pressure and a Chronic Asthmatic among other health issues. After trying everything possibly out there for weight loss. Being under Drs, Nutritionist, Dietitians and Diabetes Australia for years, trying to help me lose weight with no success, being ridiculed that I wasn't sticking to their eating plans. I was at my lowest and about to give up all together.
Now I find food as nourishment for my body. I'm not constantly hungry as I'm not having the sugar spikes bought on by carbs. I eat as clean as possible. Basically if I can't make it, I don't eat it and I have boundless energy. Now, I am 52 years old and workout 6 days a week, with weights, resistance band and body weight exercises, as well as walk anything up to 20 kms a day.
I first found your products when I went into a sports supplement shop to buy some protein powder. That's when I saw your bread mix on the shelf. I had not had bread of any kind for some time as even though I'm gluten intolerant, I also found that any grain made me feel sick and bloated. So gluten free products were even out of the question for me. Your products have now given me the freedom to be able to eat foods that I haven't been able to eat without being sick and in extreme pain from stomach cramps.
I truly believe that you need to trust your body. The experts don't know everything and we are not all made the same. Everybody is different. What is right for me, is't always right for someone else. If you find the thing that is right for you. Stick to it and don't let others tell you that what you are doing is wrong. Especially when you are succeeding in what you are doing or have done.
