From 483 to 203, Graham King epitomizes livin’ la vida low-carb

The hope and inspiration that comes from reading about amazing low-carb weight loss success stories is invaluable to people who have chosen this way of eating to lose weight and get healthy themselves. That’s why I’m pleased to share with you this incredible 280-pound Atkins weight loss success story today straight from across the pond in the UK.

Graham King used to weigh an eye-popping 483 pounds with a 66-inch waist and was so fat he couldn’t even drive a car. He even had trouble walking as little as 50 feet without gasping for breath and nearly fainting. He admits his health was rapidly declining and he was a high risk for having a heart attack or stroke, was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and his blood pressure was off the charts. Then when it came time to weigh him at the doctors office, he was too big and had to go through the “humiliating” experience of being put in a sling to be weighed.

You could say Graham was in desperately bad shape because of his morbid obesity. Like so many of us who allowed our weight to get way up there, Graham grew up around a culture of high-carb foods and encouraged to “clean his plate.”
