Great work Mike! I too have been on this journey for around 2 decades and I can't imagine going back to how I used to eat. I too don't miss eating carbs.

I've been LC since before Bob Atkins died, he died in 2003 so I'm sure I've been LC for 20 years also.

I lost 65 pounds, kept it off, and I've had great general health too.

Mike - your story is very similar to mine. Good job staying with the path not taken from the beginning. It's an incredible ride when you start to feel better while you're eating in a way that's very different (and often in conflict) from the conventional recommendations. Today, we're getting confirmation about the wisdom of low carb and nutrient density. There's still a long road to travel for many, and there are still a lot of naysayers, but the answer is there for those willing to take the time to find it. All the best!

What a great success story, Mike! Every doctor who says Low Carb is "not sustainable" should read this, and the comments too.

I started in 2003, and never wavered through ups and downs because it was the ONLY way that worked. And now we know so much more about why!

Congratulations for listening to your own self -- and having a doctor with a flexible mind
