As promised here is to share a little about myself. I used to weigh at my heaviest 116kg back in 2015. I was severely Overweight & suffered from all the 3 Highs. High BP, High cholesterol & Diabetes.
As a result i suffered serious complications from these 3 highs in the form of Heart Disease at the young age of 35. Underwent a series of Life saving operations including Quadruple Heart Bypass & stentings past 18 months & was on a dozen medications daily to keep me alive.
A radical change of lifestyle & diet soon followed. From a Carnivour i switch over completely to becoming Whole Foods Plant Based no Oil. I soon lost weight & currently weighs in at 64kg. A total weight lost of 52kg in a little over 1year’s time.
My last blood work results were Fantastic. Currently the only medications i am on are down from a dozen to 3! A blood thinner, a gastric protector to negate the side effects of the blood thinner & a baby dose of Statin. I have gone off all my other High BP, Diabetic & heart medications. I am looking forward to stopping these last 3 medications as well. Do not underestimate the power of whole foods (plants & fruits). U are what u eat!
Below i will share some pictures of myself before & after. Sometimes i shrudder when i look back at some of those pictures & felt sad i actually allowed myself to degenerate into that state…
I got this picture from my wife. I am surprised she had this pic in her smart phone & she is still Hanging around then back in 2015. 😰
Now let me share afew pictures of myself in 2016 & recently 2017. I am glad i was given a second chance (did not suffer a heart attack or stroke & drop dead) & owe my current transformation to 🌱 & 🍉.
Life is Great all over again!
