Overweight in her 20s. . . After growing up on low-fat food and mostly carbohydrates, Christine started “managing” her weight at 18. After many failed diets, she tried something different. For Christine’s full dieting history, click here.
Chronic fatigue at 30. . . In her mid twenties, Christine decided to become ‘super’ healthy, and follow mainstream dietary advice to the letter. She became a vegetarian and followed a very low-fat diet, including whole-grain and unrefined foods. She always ensured that she combined her grains and legumes to get adequate protein. Unfortunately, instead of her health improving, it started to decline. She later discovered that it was her ‘healthy’ diet doing the damage. Her blood tests showed that she was severely protein deficient, was losing calcium from her teeth and bones at the young age of 30, had insulin resistance, IBS, digestive issues, under-active thyroid, hormone problems, and had the energy of someone who just finished a marathon; she was running on empty.
A picture of health in her 40s. . . Christine completely changed her diet. She now eats LCHF (low carb, high fat) and all those forbidden foods; butter, eggs, whipped cream, all of it. She eliminated sugar and excess carbohydrates. In her mid forties, she is healthier than she ever was in her 20s. She recovered from all her health conditions, including chronic fatigue.
Freedom from diets. . . And now, Christine never has to think about how much she eats, never counts calories, and never, ever diets.
Christine spent over 13 years researching the facts about food and fats. The results are evident in her engaging, ground-breaking books about dietary truths that have been ignored by ‘conventional wisdom’; one of which is that dietary fat is not causing obesity and disease, and that in fact, low-fat diets make us fat—and sick.
Christine’s revolutionary work is captivating and easy to read; a fascinating look at how we have reached such a mistaken consensus about health—and why the truth is something we all want to hear.
