How my wife helped me lose 20 pounds in 3 months – Part 2/3 – (Starting a very low carb and high fat diet)

Written by jeremy on April 18, 2013

So I wrote an article yesterday (Part 1) about my story and how excited I was to lose 20 pounds in 3 short months. Now you may think “Wow he did it all on his own!” well I have something to confess. I had a lot of help from my wife, Carla. Although I must say that she was skeptical at first. Wondering in her head “is he serious” and “how long will this last” but after a few weeks of me pushing away the potatoes, rice, pasta and other carbs she started to catch on that I was serious. And boy did she catch on! That is when she went into superwoman, mega wife, ultra cook mode and started making awesome dishes like low carb bacon cheese cauliflower soup, stuffed peppers and zucchini lasagna. Yum! She has worked with me in coming up with foods that are low in carbs and high in fat. Reworking recipes to include different ingredients and planning new ones that will work with our family.

I am so thankful for how she has helped me reach my goal of feeling better (and losing weight in the process). While I could do it without her I know that it would be much more difficult. Thank you Carla!
