“I dropped my cholesterol from 201 to 164: Lauren’s Story”

Lauren|Lauren and her family

I am a 31-year-old mom of 2 little girls. I struggled with postpartum depression after both my girls, and I have been trying to find me again.⠀

Three months ago, I went to the doctor for a physical. He called me and told me I had an under-active thyroid and wanted me to go on hormones. He also told me that I had high cholesterol.⠀

I asked him if he would give me three months to change my lifestyle and eating habits, before putting me on medication. He agreed.⠀

A friend was doing the Whole30 and felt amazing. I got my husband on board and we started the program together. We’ve been eating great accompanied by good workouts, a complete change in our lifestyle. And we feel great!⠀

I got the call last night that I dropped my cholesterol from 201 to 164 and my thyroid hormone decreased so significantly that I don’t need to be put on medication.⠀

The Whole30 works; it changed my life. My parents are starting on Sunday. Seeing my results and how good I feel is changing other people’s way of thinking. I am a hairdresser and I tell all of my clients about the Whole30.⠀

Thank you for giving me a new lease on life, a new relationship with food, and probably many more years down the road to have with my girls. You have made me a firm believer and you’ve shown me how good I could really feel!
