Cathy came in heavy. She weight 150kgs and was on medication for thyroid, raised insulin and blood pressure. We saw each other every two weeks for a year. After implementing the dietary changes and using selective supplements, she managed to lose 25kgs.
Her blood pressure and insulin medications have been reduced and for the first time ever her insulin levels are within normal range (despite previous weight loss and exercise). She is now aiming for the next 30kgs!
When I first met Cindy she was in a terrible state. She had struggled with her weight and infertility for fourteen years and at the age of 41 her time was running out. In addition to this she has many other hives. She was desperate to get herself in shape so that she could go for another round of IVF. She first saw a doctor who adjusted her medication and the doctor referred her to a dietitian.
