66 year old male who has steadily put on weight over the last 12 years or so, and I take medication for high Blood Pressure (BP), Statin and Aspirin. In August I had a medical checkup, the doctor told me, amongst other things, that I was pretty much pre-diabetic (101 mg/). On the strength of that and seeing the 1st episode of “Lose a stone in a month”, with hearing too about the problems that having so much belly fat can bring, I decided that I must take action – yet again! I am well pleased with my progress, and so is my wife who has done so much to encourage and support me.
I started the 800 Calorie a day diet on
17th August at 118.6kgs,
1st week I lost 6 kgs, = 112.6 kgs (BP 136/77)
2nd week I lost 2 kgs, = 110.6 kgs (BP 107/69)
3rd week I lost 2.3 kgs = 108.3 kgs (BP 114/76)
On Thursday 10th September I visited my Cardiologist to report my weight loss and concomitant drop in BP (101/66), he immediately halved my BP medication and opined that within in another month or less that I would be off both BP medication and Statins too.
On Saturday 12th September I tested my Fasting Blood Sugar, it was 88 mg/dl. So, as a result of this diet within the space of less than four weeks, I have lost 10.3 kgs in weight, my BP has been lowered considerably , my medication has been halved, and my Fasting Blood Sugar is normal.
