“My chronic pain dis­ap­peared!”

First For Women - - Nutrition -

Look­ing at a photo of her­self hold­ing her new­est grand­child, Adda Har­ris burst into tears. I’ve be­come so

heavy, she re­al­ized. There is no way I’ll live to see my grand­kids grow up.

“My great-grandma lived to 94,” says Adda, who hoped for that kind of longevity. But her weight, which piled on af­ter a hys­terec­tomy, put that goal in jeop­ardy. “I thought I was eat­ing healthy, so it was frus­trat­ing.” Heaped onto the weight were health con­cerns in­clud­ing di­a­betes, fatty liver, chronic pain and brain fog. “Re­call­ing names was be­com­ing dif­fi­cult,” she re­veals. “I was a hot mess!”

Then Adda met Steven

Gundry, M.D., and when he asked if she’d like to try his nu­tri­tion pro­to­col, she said, “What do I have to lose but weight?”She be­gan to steer clear of grains like corn and wheat and in­stead ate or­ganic veg­gies along with grass­fed beef and foods rich in re­sis­tant starch, like as­para­gus and pota­toes.

Adda’s body re­sponded to the changes. Her pain and cloudy think­ing van­ished within four weeks. What’s more, her blood sugar im­proved so much, she was able to get off her di­a­betes meds.

These days,

Adda has traded her size 18 pants for a size 8. “I cry happy tears when I think about what Dr.

Gundry has done for me.”

Best of all: “I can en­joy my six grand­ba­bies!”
