The 3AM call I got the other night.

This just in from Carol McC, an auditor for Dr. Heidi's Sep Fat Burn program. She got the ER Real Food list, and listened to the five group calls. She reports...
"I have had great success, lost 12 lbs in 5 weeks and 9 1/2 inches. I did take notes, but seldom made time to refer back to them after listening to all the calls...I probably could have done better.

"But I want to tell you about my 3 am call to work to help with a special project.

"First thing I did was hot water with lemon, get dressed, take POPS, cook my eggs and packed an ER Goody Bag.

"It took an hour for me to reach the office at 4:30 am. I was alert and ready, not so for those 30 years younger than me, as they all straggled in later than I.

"By 7:00 pm, (13 hours later) when it was obvious that it was going to be an all night project and them some.

"I went to Whole Foods for provisions, (Liverwurst, Turkey, Olives and some Raw Cow's Milk Cheese). I took a Purple POPS every 4 hours or so.

"When the attorney that I work closely with asked me what I was taking, I showed him the box. He asked for some too, I said go ahead. There was lots of take out junk food, Pizza, Fried Chicken, Biscuits & Sausage, Bagels, etc.

"I ate no junk, he ate very little - one piece of Pizza. I was fine, I drank lots of water, some home-made ER Kefir and ran out of my staple of homemade iced Green Tea.

"I am proud to say that I was able to get up early today for my foraging at the two Farmer's Markets that I go to. I found some Grass Fed Lamb chops today, my Raw Goat Cheese, 7 lbs. of Chicken Backs for soup and my staple of Pastured Eggs. I will take a nap shortly and sleep very well tonight and maybe a little later than usual tomorrow.

"Thank you Dr. Heidi for helping me get my health back." -Carol McC

Very inspiring Carol. Makes me want to add my own successes. In brief i followed the program quite closely except for the Kefir .

As a 30 year Type II diabetic (using insulin) my main goals were to lose weight and keep my blood sugars under 100. (Non-diabetics usually are between (70-110).

These were very important to me and motivated me to start and commit to the program. When I had some immediate weight loss my commitment and motivation heightened. My results:

have lost 8lbs and have an average blood sugar for the last 60 measurements of 86. In thirty years that low of an average has never happened. The catch is that I have been on a low carbo plan for many years but not a food plan like ER.

I was having low energy problems but I accepted that in exchange for moderate blood sugars. Once I added good fats and proteins on the ER plan I now have the energy, weight loss and normalized blood sugars.

In fact last night I forgot to take my overnight insulin and wondered what my glucose level would be in the AM. Was I surprised: 105... which is close enough! That has never happened before.

But additional benefits that I did not expect and did not aim for initially have included more energy, a cessation of belching, and a reduction to almost nothing of periodic break outs of atopic dermatitis on my feet. The belching and skin breakouts are not uncommon to diabetics.....so these were added and greatly motivating results.

Now on to detox.
