Dr. Alan Christianson here. Have you ever heard that line “your results may vary”. You know it is true for a lot of things. You know it is really true when it comes to your diet and your health. Just the other day I was talking to a woman about a fascinating story.
A really fit conscientious gal trying so hard. Her husband had gone Paleo a few months ago. So they did that as a couple which is a good way to do it often. He lost a lot of weight. He improved his health. His cholesterol dropped and he was doing really well. So she was doing the same step by step. She was doing the same exact diet. You know a lesser amount to match her size. Exact same foods he was eating. Over that time frame, she put on twenty-two pounds. You know a rather petite woman that is kind of a pretty big deal for size. Her cholesterol skyrocketed and she was developing pain in her abdomen. So we checked her out and it we saw that she was heading towards diabetes. She was getting a fatty liver disease and yes she was at risk for cardiovascular problems as well. So the exact same diet.
