Six years ago, my doctors told me that my cholesterol was high. I gradually, over the next couple of years, had gotten to the point where I stopped eating meat and dairy and stuff like that, I’d say 90% of the time.
I didn’t have insurance for a long time, so I didn’t go back to the doctor for a while. It had been a while, and I still wasn’t eating meat or dairy or anything like that. I went back, and they told me my cholesterol was the same. It hadn’t changed at all. Because of that, they wanted to put me on medication, and I didn’t want to take it.
The next day, I talked to one of my friends. His mom knew someone who was coming to see Dr. Suzan. They gave me her information, and I called her up that minute and made an appointment, I think, for the next day or something like that. Now I’m here.
In the first month I lost, like, 20 pounds. In the 3-1/2 months that I’ve been here, it’s probably close to 40 pounds. There have been improvements in all my other numbers and stuff like that, aside from my cholesterol. It’s been pretty impressive.
