Lost all the weight I intended to lose--and I'm keeping it off!
This testimonial is some months overdue.
I reached my weight goal—and I have maintained my weight goal for 6 months now—thanks to Dr. Mercola’s book Fat for Fuel—and the use of Cronometer. I am satisfied that I am eating a healthy regimen for my overall health, not just to maintain my ideal weight.
The major factors that helped me to lose weight are as follows.
1) Cutting carbs (even good carbs) to a maximum of 10 carbs/day or less
2) Recording ALL food intake in Cronometer; monitoring macro nutrients, especially carbs.
3) Keeping my healthy fat intake at the recommended high amount; eating MCT oil, 4 TB/day
4) Intermittent fasting; specifically, skipping breakfast (fasting for 15+ hours) 3-5 days/week.
Note: Exercise was NOT a major factor in my weight loss. I did not have a consistent exercise
Weigh in at 138#. My goal is to lose the extra weight which has been slowly & steadily increasing since I went on full-on menopause fifteen years prior—despite all my “weight loss diet” efforts--and which, as of this date, is about 15 extra pounds. I am 67 years old. I begin a low carb program, with moderate protein. A few weeks into my low-carb regimen, I begin to follow the regimen recommended in “Fat for Fuel.”
Achieve a weight loss of 20# (I exceeded my original weight loss goal of 15#)
Weigh in at 118#. (I weigh myself every Monday morning.)
Thank you, Dr. Mercola! Thank you, Cronometer!
