    Hello Jonathan and Carrie! Can you believe I am back with more good news from eating sane? It just continues. My husband Tom and I changed our diets after following Dr. Davis’s book, Wheat Belly for many months. We gave up all wheat, all grains (no rice, no beans, no substitutes), all sugar including fruit (which raised by blood sugar to over 200), and all starches.

    We were doing great after giving up all these foods and Tom slowly was losing weight. Then I stumbled across The Smarter Science of Slim, immediately changing my 6 day/week/90 minute workout to two days of HIIT, as recommended in the book. We added another layer to our way of eating, going “sane.”

    In the begging I was having blood sugar issues and found that when we started going sane and I began eating more SF Greek yogurt and cottage cheese, my blood sugar spiked. Cutting out these two dairy items, finally put me into the normal blood sugar range around the clock. Tom’s weight loss escalated which had been extremely slow before “sane.” He’s now lost 50 pounds in 16 months and lost 10 inches in his waist!

    As I mentioned in a prior post here, I had suffered for years with all over body pain for years due to the herniation of every disc in my spine (diagnosed by recent 2 MRIs) from C1 to L5. I was told I needed a total spinal fusion which I refused. Now, after the double approach of changing our diets, I am totally pain free for the first time in 20 years.

    Then, a miracle happened. Husband Tom suffered with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), severe acid reflux which subsequently manifested into Barrett’s esophagus. Last week he had an endoscopy and colonoscopy and it was truly amazing to see the doctor after the procedures. Barrett’s, GONE! Polyps -NONE, IBS – GONE!!! His digestive tract was impeccable with no signs of disease which only 3 years ago was frightening indicting possible cancer in the future with all the inflammation he’d had. GONE!!! After going sane, he stopped taking 7 pills a day!

    Now, only 16 months since the beginning of this process, we leave the US to travel the world for the next 5-10 years, having sold everything we own leaving us each with only 3 suitcases, a carry on and a computer bag. None of this would have been possible had it no been for the decisions we made to change or lives. I was ready for a wheel chair 18 months ago. Now I am lifting outrageously heavy weights following Jonathan’s HIIT protocol. Tom doesn’t work out but looks slim and fit. Go figure.

    Thank you Jonathan, once again and now you, Carrie. I listen to every podcast when at the gym. We leave the US in 3 weeks. This lifestyle will continue as we document not only our travels but the sane food choices we make all over the world in our rapidly growing blog, where we posted the first 3 year’s itinerary yesterday.: http://www.WorldWideWaftage.com

    It will be no sacrifice when we turn away pasta and bread while in Tuscany all next summer. The small concession has saved our lives. We now look at toxic foods as poison and have no interest or desire in even taking a bite.

    Thank you so much! Now both retired as of Halloween, we both feel we are… finally free.

    Warmest regards,
    Jess & Tom
