About / History

In April of 2010 I was diagnosed with liver disease and high blood pressure. My weight was 355 lbs and I had been fat for years. The Doctor recommended I eliminate salt from my meals. I have been losing 1.4 lbs per day and eating more food than before. Vitamins and minerals are increased due to the increase use of fresh whole food. Carbohydrate intake is moderate so there is little change in energy.
