I'm a 57yo woman. Due to a liver condition, I wasn't able to consume fats for twelve years and was restricted to small quantities of food. Then, for the past two years I've been in remission and can eat almost anything. Therefore I've gained 10kgs and my metabolism seems to have been 'stuck'.
Four months ago I started doing 30mins a day of exercise, then began increasing it to 60mins some days. Then, last month, I joined a gym, so I'm quite active. STILL NO WEIGHT LOSS! Talk about frustrating! I've been maintaining my weight and that's all.
Then I came across this website. I've been following your advice for a week now and have lost 2kgs, which is amazing progress for me. It's taken a real mental effort to start consuming fats, but for the first time in many years, I finally feel sated. Even more amazing is that I no longer crave grains, sugar and other carbs. There has been chocolate in my fridge for a week and I don't even want it. I've always considered myself a carboholic and have had treatment in the past for compulsive eating. This seems to be no longer a problem.
Thank you so much for some advice that finally makes sense and works.
