Atkins Low-Carb Diet Still Changing Lives

Filed under: Atkins Diet — @ June 6, 2007

While the Atkins diet has been promoted primarily for weight loss (which it does an amazing job of producing–180 pounds lost on it for me!), just as impressive is the way it helps bring about major improvements in the health of the people who are doing it as well.

Such is the case with an e-mail I received this week from a woman who began livin’ la vida low-carb to help with her myriad of physical issues.

Here are some highlights of what she wrote in her e-mail:

I have struggled with my weight for most of my life, and have tried many things, all of which have failed. I even tried medication, which left me with a host of new health issues–Raynaud’s Phenomenon and erythromyalgia–both of which are peripheral nerve damage diseases…

My hearing also was affected, I have high blood pressure, very strong palpitations not only in my chest, but my neck and head as well. I am not sure if it was the medication which caused them all or if it was all inevitable. But I can honestly say that since starting the Atkins diet, I have noticed a drastic decrease in all of these conditions…

I have lost 10 pounds in ten days…I feel my overall health is improving and I wasn’t expecting it to. I started this hoping to lose some weight. But now I want to adopt the Atkins lifestyle permanently…

I don’t need my blood pressure medication anymore, and I can’t wait to tell my doctor the kind of diet that I used to lowered it.

Isn’t that just remarkable?! Read more of this e-mail from a woman whose health is being radically changed for the better by clicking here.
