Weight Loss Makes Pregnancy Possible for One Woman

Infertility Vanished with One Woman’s Weight Loss

Natural Health | February 23, 2011

I met Holly Johnson this past weekend at our Northern Virginia Whole Foods Nutrition meetup group. When I heard her dramatic testimony of how a change in diet enabled her to become pregnant, just had to share it with you!

Here is our video interview!

For more information on low carb diets, I recommend Living La Vida Low Carb blog by Jimmy Moore. If others have suggestions on helpful weight loss sites, please add them to the comments, below.

Coming soon, a guest blog by a medical doctor who has just come out with a book on weight loss. He has helped thousands upon thousands of patients lose weight. We spoke on the phone yesterday, and I am very excited to hear what he has to share!

Check the Books and Literature section of my resources page for more help on nutrition and lifestyle changes to improve your health. New Trends Publishing offers several excellent weight loss books, A Life Unburdened and Eat Fat, Lose Fat, for instance.

Kimberly Hartke is a health and wellness blogger. She and her husband lost 50 lbs between them by following a healthy fat, good carb diet, which emphasized low glycemic carbs.

This post is part of the Real Food Wednesday blog carnival. You’ll find lots of healthy recipes and real food ideas on Kelly the Kitchen Kop.

A new study published this month (April 2014) compared two diets with overweight diabetic people.

One group ate the standard recommended diet by the American Diabetes Association, which was a low-fat, high carbohydrate, restricted calorie diet, as per the USDA dietary guidelines for a “healthy” diet.

The other group, almost in direct contrast to the ADA diet, was encouraged to eat a a very low carbohydrate, high fat, non calorie-restricted ketogenic diet.

The results? The ketogenic diet group, although eating far more calories than the ADA group, lost more weight, and more ketogenic dieters reduced their diabetes medication than did the ADA group.

Black Garlic and Sprouted Garlic Have Enhanced Health Benefits

Garlic has been shown to have positive effects for more than 150 different diseases due to its numerous powerful natural phytochemicals. Garlic reduces inflammation, boosts immune function, is toxic to 14 types of cancer, and boosts cardiovascular health in multiple ways. One of garlic’s compounds is allicin, a sulfur-rich compound that is likely its most powerful weapon against bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Black garlic has recently been discovered to contain twice the antioxidant punch of fresh garlic due to an extensive aging or curing process.

Enzyme Nutrition and Raw Food: Fact or Fiction?

Is there any scientific evidence that enzymes present in raw foods provide significant help for the digestion of foods themselves once the foods enter the human digestive system?

Let’s take a look at the evidence, and try to distinguish facts from belief.

Diet Soda Sales Plummet as Consumers’ Understanding of Deadly Health Risks Grow

Soda consumption is now in “freefall,” having dropped to its lowest point since 1995, with diet sodas taking the greatest hit.

One of the largest studies of its kind found that drinking just two diet drinks a day can increase your risk of an early death from heart disease by 50 percent. Previous research looking at aspartame toxicity also found a clear association between aspartame consumption and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and leukemia.
