IDM Community Success Story: Interview with Laura

Happy New Year!

I know many people are struggling to get back into their regular fasting and eating routines now that the holiday seasons have ended.  This week I wanted to share with you something special – an interview with IDM Community Member Laura.  Laura had bariatric surgery thinking that it would give her back control over her appetite, weight and health.  While she did lose some weight immediately after the surgery, her appetite went through the roof!  She started gaining weight and feeling hungrier than ever.  She started to do her research and found the solution she had been looking for her entire life – fasting.

I hope Laura’s story motivates you going into 2019 to realize this can be YOUR year to conquer your goals and regain control of your health and well being.

Remember, it’s not what you eat between Christmas and New Years that matters.  It’s what you eat between New Years and Christmas,

Happy Fasting Everyone!

Thank you for sharing! I started the 16/8 hour fasting three weeks ago and have lost about 19 pounds. I also had gastric bypass surgery in 2008. I lost 90 pounds and reached my goal of 130 in less than a year. Four years ago I started gaining Weight again. I am now trying to get my weight back under control. The fasting is definitely helping. This past Monday, 1/7/19, I donated a kidney to my mother so my health has to stay good. The nutritionist I met with post surgery said absolutely no keto diet as it’s too hard… Read more »
