DO ZERO CARB RIGHT OR DON'T DO IT


I am sorry I could not post in the recent days but I was busy helping this next-door couple since Monday night as the wife called me for help when she discovered her husband lying unconscious on the floor…

An hour later, a CT SCAN confirmed this man had a huge brain hemorrhage with total paralysis of the right side of his body and complete loss of speech.  He got a brain surgery and he is still in intensive care. Age: 55 years old…

The worst thing being he was “trying” since some time to do ZC to loose weight and get his blood pressure + blood sugar under control... while refusing categorically to take any medication prescribe by his doctor for theses health issues...

After talking with the wife, I discovered while having all his nice daily ZC “fat + meat”, which "he enjoyed pretty much" she admitted, he would also have some chips, cans of sweet tea and fruit juices... 

KABOOM!!!

Which brings up another IMPORTANT rule about ZC: 

ONE NEEDS TO DO ZC RIGHT OR DON’T DO IT.

ZC asks for no compromise. Which is, probably, why it is works so well.

  2. Luckily, the neighbor with the brain stroke is getting better. Well at 55 years old you would expect some improvements…

    After chatting with his wife, I am NOT sure ZC is the way to go for him. It is sad to admit this but maybe ZC is “do-able” only for some folks. The reason? They are probably numerous: motivation, environment (family, friends, work, social origin and culture, ect), health history and actual status, personal insight, substance addiction… so many issues can assure success or total catastrophes.

    I think everyone on ZC should do the exercise of asking himself or herself why they could succeed on this WOE. Sometimes we need to realize how much we are blessed to have founded “the road” we needed to take…!!!
