A Dietitian’s Journey

This is my personal account following a low carbohydrate diet in order to improve my previous ill-health. My journey began March 5, 2017 when I was obese, had been Type 2 Diabetic for 8 years, had very high blood pressure as well as abnormal cholesterol and triglycerides, along with mast cell disorder (which increases both blood sugar and blood pressure).

Two years later I was in remission of Type 2 Diabetes, had optimal cholesterol and triglycerides and achieved my waist-to-height goal by losing 55 pounds. It took another year of continuing to eat this way for my blood pressure to finally drop to normal, resulting in my doctor deprescribing medications.

Keep in mind, these results are specific to me.  Everybody’s “journey” is different.
