I’m an RN. I ordered Grain Brain after seeing you on FOX & Friends.
My husband had ignored my suggestions that he lose weight for years. The last week of November and first week of December 2013 he was going to have cataract surgery. I suggested he try the low-carb, gluten-free diet because his blood sugar a year before had been pre-diabetic. He was concerned about the chance of infection and loss of sight so he agreed.
During the week before Thanksgiving and the week after, he lost 10 pounds! His 2-hour post-prandial blood sugar was 98.
To date, he has gone from 215 pounds a week before Thanksgiving to 192.9 pounds yesterday, a loss of 22 pounds! Even through the Christmas holidays he lost. He tells everyone he’s never hungry and enjoys his food. At 68 he looks 20 years younger.
We have also started some of the supplements suggested in Grain Brain: Vitamin D 5000 IU, CoQ10 100 mg, fish oil 2000 mg. We plan an appointment with our internist to get our vitamin D, Hg A1C, CRP, Cyrex Array 3, and a pattern B LDL profile levels.
We’ve also started using Turmeric daily on our food like most people use salt. We are working on stopping or reversing inflammation. I have had patches of psoriasis on my elbows every winter for the last 10 years. This year I don’t have it. We are anxious to see what the CRP is for us both.
