He recently saw his doctor, who was surprised and concerned, and asked if the weight loss was intentional, but admitted that his numbers were very good--i.e., the best in his life! DH's bmi is about 21. Yes, he looks thinner. That's what healthy looks like folks. Even our doctors are so used to seeing fat people that they don't know a healthy one when they see one.
Yes, when 2/3 of adults in the country are heavy and 1/3 are obese, it is easy to imagine that many doctors see few thin patients! Many still seem to associate a plump face with health.
Maybe this also gives some an excuse for not changing to this "weird" diet--fear they will wreck their health!I expect that many here were once in that camp--fearing they were not getting enough!
Now we know that those who always get "enough" are likely to get diabetes and cardiovascular disease!VO, I am glad you and your man are showing others how to do this "weird" diet!
