Chris’ journey to lose over 200 pounds, shed 8 different medications, and normalize blood sugar in 12 years. One man, one pair of walking shoes, one program…The Metabolism Miracle by Diane Kress, RD CDE.
Chris’ Journey in his own words:
“The wife and I were having a normal discussion (for us), which is; we can’t believe how different we look, and I decided I wanted to say Thanks!.
On 2/1/12, I started a new life. My A1C was 11.5; I weighed over 400 lbs, had high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and all other tests indicated a metabolism fully off the rails. Someone told me about your book (The Metabolism Miracle).
I started reading it the day it arrived. My wife Nancy joined me a few months later and you have seen my daughter’s, Caitlin, success as well.
I’ve lost about 180 pounds*, my A1c is 5.1 at last check, blood pressure normal, cholesterol normal, and best of all the meds are gone too! I only take a sleeping pill now instead of the 9 prescriptions I took every day.
Nancy has lost about 100 pounds and her medication list has shrunk as well. Her A1c has moved from the pre-diabetic range to the normal range.
I have also “infected” others with my enthusiasm for this lifestyle and many have had similar success. When they ask if it works I just say “works every time ; it’s tried.” In addition I have started speaking to Diabetes support groups about the lifestyle changes I have made. I couldn’t have done this without your book and they are all made aware of that.
My message is; ” if I can do it, then you can do it!” I loved your recent article about the cure being a pair of walking shoes and a book and I couldn’t agree more! I just replaced my 2 year old pair, and that’s another story. The new pair is one size smaller a 4 widths narrower. I think the picture will tell you the rest. Thank you! Thank you!! Thank you!!!
Diane Kress says: ***When Chris’ A1C was 11.5, it reflected an average blood sugar of 285mg/dL; 24 hours per day, for the previous 3 months. Now, with an A1C of 5.1, his average blood sugar is 93mg/dL; 24 hours per day for the previous 3 months
Diane Kress says: ***For each point A1C improves, 5 pounds are gained! So, when Chris decreased his A1C by 6.4 points (absolutely fantastic), he literally gained 32 pounds. So, he got MUCH healthier, but at the price of a onetime only weight gain of 32 pounds. But Chris never saw the weight gain on his scale…WHY NOT? This gain occurs because the excess sugar once circulating in Chris’blood stream when his A1C was 11.5 didn’t just evaporate when his A1C decreased to 5.1. The Metabolism Miracle program enabled the excess blood sugar to move from the blood stream (where it would eventually lead to diabetes complications) into fat cells. The Metabolism Miracle then burned this body fat! When he weighs now, the scale shows he lost 180 pounds, but he also lost the extra 32 pounds he assimilated from lowering his very high blood sugar. His actual weight loss = 212 pounds!
UPDATE March, 2015. Chris is now 199 pounds! Remember his initial A1C drop from 11.5 to 5.1. In addition to the weight loss shown on the scale, Chris has lost 32 pounds from burning fat in the process. So, as of March, 2015...Chris has lost 231# of fat!!!!
From Chris March, 2015:
I’ve sent you photos in the past, but thought you’d like the new ones. Please share with any one you like and let them know they can do it. As of this morning I have Los 199 pounds and I found out my body fat% is 22%– down from 29% a couple of months ago.. I know 200 is close and another few pounds and I will literally be half the man I was. I have had to tune up my diet and pay attention to carb and fat intakes to get out of the last plateau, but the arrow sheet still applies!
Many thanks Diane, I would not have gotten here without you. Thanks, Chris Compton.
