“Fat Was the Key!”

At the age of 42 Aaron was developing type 2 diabetes, after having struggled with his weight forever. He felt hopeless and afraid.

Searching the internet Aaron found his way here, and this is how it changed his life:

The Email

Hi Andreas,

My name is Aaron and I just wanted to say thank you.

Your site literally changed my life.

I am 42 years old and have been struggling with my weight for about 20 years. I have tried almost every diet over the years. Always losing but then gaining more than I lost.

In the last 2 years I developed hypertension and pre-diabetes.

Last January I felt hopeless and afraid. I was on three hypertension medications and had a A1C of 6.2. My doctor wanted to start treating me for Diabetes. On January 17th I found I immediately started a restricted low carb/high fat diet based on the info on your site and Dr. Eric Westman's e-book.

Today I am 25 pounds (11 kg) lighter, off my meds and just found out yesterday my A1C is already down to 5.5!!!

I fast at least 12 hours every day without even thinking about it. I eat 2 meals a day and I am never hungry. I am still losing weight.

I have tried low carb many times before but always tried to stay low fat. Fat was the key!

I am a member of your site I've watched every video!

You guys seriously rock.

Thanks for everything!
