“Last Christmas I was very overweight and, at age 59, I had already begun to develop congestive heart failure. I was also diabetic and injecting myself daily with insulin. I knew if I didn’t take care of myself, I wouldn’t be alive to see the next Christmas. As a physician, I knew there was no better place for me to go than Pritikin. By the end of my first week at Pritikin, my blood sugar had dropped into normal ranges. It was very quick! Within 10 days, I’d lost 20 pounds. After one month, I was completely off insulin. My total cholesterol dropped to 130, and my LDL cholesterol fell to 78. It’s now been five months since I’ve been faithfully following the Pritikin Program, and I’ve shed 53 pounds. I feel 100% better. I’m absolutely delighted!”
