I’m glad to hear that Thomas has been able to stick to his New Year’s resolution to go grain-free. I’m sure there are many of you out there who are doing the same. – Dr. Perlmutter
I started on a grain-free program January 1 of this year – yet another New Year’s resolution destined to go south? This time, it appears to be different.
I have lost 35 pounds in less than 3 months. My waist size has gone from 42” to 39” and I have, for the most part, lost 90%+ visceral fat. My appetite at this stage is almost non-existent – I actually have to create high-calorie snacks (walnuts) just to make sure I am getting at least 1,500 calories. It is remarkable to say the least.
As someone who was addicted to carbs, I am beyond pleased. My goal is to reach 175 pounds by April 30 (my high school weight – I am 66). I don’t see a problem accomplishing this. I had a hip replacement in 2012, and I have been motivated to try and prevent repeating the same on the other side. I have lost the pain in that hip and now walk miles per day with comfort!
