I have been on the liver transplant list for 6 years now. The Doctors constantly warn me to lose the weight. I have tried so many times falling short of success. My visit last week really sank in when he told me if I develop liver cancer he would not be able to help me because of the weight I weigh. He is such a kind and concerned Liver specialist. I could not ask for a better doctor. He told me since I had diabetes 2 that if I could get me blood sugar down through lower carb eating I probably will be able to cut down on my insulin I take which is turning what I eat into fat in my body.

Well guess what.....I am determined to lose the weight. I have already lost 4 pounds since my doctor's visit. My body already feels so much better without having to deal with the carbohydrates. I have so much more energy. Can you believe this? I was a heavy carbohydrate consumer. Wish me well. Stayed tuned to a new success story. You will not be disappointed.
