20-stone mum lost HALF her body weight joins the low carbers.


Some extracts from the story linked below.

"A grandmother who became so embarrassed by her size that she became a social recluse has lost HALF of her body weight after being determined to attend her goddaughter’s wedding.

Delpha Pope, 43, from Ashford, Kent reached a whopping 20 stone and dress size 30 after years of mindlessly munching the same size portions as her hubby.

Her typical diet consisted of a gourmet coffee and pastry for breakfast, calorie-laden pre-packaged sandwiches for lunch as well as lots of bread, biscuits, cake, and a carb-heavy dinners - like lasagne.


Now she avoids carbs, eats lots of vegetables including mushrooms, tomatoes and courgettes, has lean chicken and steak and has swapped mash for sweet potatoes."

Hat tip to this amazing Woman, what she has done takes real effort and dedication, not only does she look fantastic, if she stays on the plan, I am convinced she will put many active years on her life.

Doesn't it show what can be achieved. I'm sure the path wasn't easy at times but so worth while. I hope this lady enjoys the wedding.

Low carb and low fat, sounds like a standard low calorie diet to me.

Looks like the low carb insulin hypothesis is about to be relegated to the dustbin of history Eddie. Garry Taubes's NuSi study backed by millions of dollars of cash has just disproved his and Atkins own theories. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot! You called Carbsane a nutter but what she's been saying for years has just been validated by the NuSi study created by Taubes and Attia. Waiting for Graham to announce this result seeing as he denies been a cherry picker.

So now you are implying you will agree with any future NuSi studies or are you just cherry picking? or maybe it's you that's in denial.

I still say Carbsane is a nutter the very fact she's in denial about LC is laughable according to her Eddie and I should be pushing up daises rather than after over eight years of LC still holding good numbers and keeping meds to a minimum

See George Henderson's take on the study

Love and low carb hugs

I'm very happy for her too. She looks incredible! I am getting my 'diet' back on track right now and I sure feel a lot better after making a few adjustments. It's not easy to maintain a good weight...you have to watch what you eat all of the time. Thanks for the info you share! Hugs, Diane

The lady sure did a marvelous job in losing the weight.

I see sweet potatoes are now low carb - sounds as though she just ditched the junk so that would be fat and sugar. Cherry picking as usual.
