Dr. Hyman helps the Stallmans
"Hearing that your blood sugars show you are diabetic (when you didn’t know it) or that your C-reactive protein (CRP) levels show extremely high levels of inflammation are not things any of us wants to hear. Especially when we know that the root cause of being sick is our diet or our lifestyle.
The truth is that the Stallmans have been duped into eating a diet that has made them sick. They, like many, believed that “low fat” and whole grains were healthy and that diet drinks helped them lose weight. They didn’t get the tools or information they needed to care for themselves, so they kept on eating convenience foods that tasted amazing, were affordable and were easy to make.
The Stallmans have amazed me. For the past month, they have followed my program earnestly and have celebrated several successes and have worked through some hurdles as well. In the last couple of weeks they have learned how to create low glycemic (sugar) meals that remind them of their Italian and French heritage but without the flour, dairy, sugar, alcohol, or other toxic ingredients they once relied on."
