Please note: None of us here are doctors, dieticians, scientists, health researchers, trained chefs or any other credentialed expert in any way. I'm just a woman who's fought obesity all my life and this is purely my own experience and opinion. This is my journey and I share it in the hope it will help other people find what's right for them. We are all individuals, and what works for some may not work for others.
I urge you to look into the science and form your own opinions. Then find a doctor with similar beliefs and consult them regarding your health. The person who gains the most from your own good health is you, so take charge and responsibility for it.
I wish you the best in your own health journey.
