Enlarged Liver Reversal + Type 2 Diabetes Reversal + Obesity Reversal — Raj’s Transformation

September 21, 2019

My doctor after looking at the results basically
said, “Oh my God! What’s
going on? This just is a miracle” He’s never seen anything
like it, especially on a natural basis, and he wants
to know more. I’m Canadian. My background, I live in New York, I grew
up a lifelong vegetarian, for cultural-religious reasons. And you would think, “Hey
being a vegetarian, that’s healthy” and in fact, not all vegetarians,
vegans are alike, as we know. You could be a bad vegan, you could be a
good vegan. And I’ve worked, I have dealt with weight
issues up and down. I’ve been extremely healthy, were I had a
six-pack, and I’ve gained weight in certain periods. Where my kind of negative journey started
was back in 2010, I’m a Wall Street guy, work some crazy hours, and it
was really starting, in 2010, when I was at probably the best health I had
been in, I just got into this spiral of trying to excel in life through
a stronger career. It was really
the beginning of my 30s. Today I’m 39, so I’m just kind of taking 10
years back, and it feels like I’d lost my 10 years. But, during that ten-year period, I went from
a weight of 170, and ballooned to almost 250. So, that was the max. And
during that time it was a constant battle, it almost became food
addiction. So, the excuse was, I was too busy for work,
I’ve got a whole bunch of businesses, and I was just constantly
focused on that. But, you
know, I wasn’t exercising and wasn’t taking care of myself. But the excuse
was work, and trying to find success, or an inkling of success at the
detriment my health. Being a vegetarian, I have really focused
on trying to eat healthy, but it was bad as I mentioned, but food became my
crutch to relieve stress. But
it was making me more stressed. I would have bad eating habits. Anyways,
so that just ballooned, and I did have a family history of diabetes, in
fact coming from a South Asian culture, subculture, that’s vegetarian and
very high incidence of diabetes. Close to 70% of urban dwellers within the
state of Gujarat in India is diabetic. I tried a vegan diet. Juice fasts, and nothing was really sticking,
and I would say I pride myself in being able to
do good research for a very long period of time, in fact a lot of people came
to me for a good health, but I was following normal stuff that was showing
up on Men’s Health, and various different articles. So, I was on top of all that, but the big
thing that kept on popping up was low-carbs, higher protein, and it worked
for me in my 20s, but for the last probably 25 years, when my father and
my grandmother were diagnosed with diabetes, the one common thing that’s
been told here within the Indian community, whatever, you talk to anyone
it’s, “Forget potatoes, forget fruits, avoid sugar, avoid sweets,
and you’ll be healthy.” And that
just wasn’t working, as we know. So, in 2016, at the end of 2016 I was officially
diagnosed with diabetes. Before that, I was actually diagnosed with
fatty liver disease, which are non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, which is
enlarged liver. And how that
showed up was through elevated ALT, ALT levels or enzymes. I think I hit
around 140, I forget the exact units, but it was definitely way out there,
and kind of freaked my doctors out. And started looking into it,
definitely it was fatty liver. And I was trying to lose weight, I was told
basically to cut out sugars, cut out carbs, you know, same type of
diagnosis, but it wasn’t really working. One of the key reasons why some of those diets
weren’t working was, it just wasn’t satisfying to the body. I think when you have a satisfactory
diet, or intake, if your body’s liking it, it’s gonna respond fairly
quickly, and these weren’t responding quickly. And I was in… And I’m a
momentum based type of guy, if I see a positive momentum, I’m gonna jump
on the bandwagon and keep going, with these things it just wasn’t working. There was an emotional toll as well, so at
the age of 39, almost 39, I’m the proud father of two boys, and for the
last eight or nine years I just haven’t been able to play with them. I was just emotionally not there,
physically not there, and what I realized is, there is always a spark in
people, at some point you weigh your positives and your negatives, and the
spark for me was when they overheard my younger son talk to my older son,
and they wanted to play basketball with me, but the younger son basically
told my older son that, you know, “Forget dad, he’s lazy, he’s overweight,
and he just won’t be able to play, and he never plays with us” And I overheard that, and that was emotionally
striking, because I’m not even 40 yet, I know physically things were
getting worse, but I’m losing my family. And that really hurt. But when I talked to my endocrinologist
she said, “There’s no way. Basically it’s a lifelong disease, and you
just can’t do it” And, you know, I fought with
her, we kind of sparred back and forth, this was about a year and a half ago,
but she convinced me it’s impossible. Take Metformin, you can maybe make it better,
you can make your A1c a little bit better through diet
and control, but reversal is not even an issue. And then, March 1st I joined Mastering Diabetes
officially, followed the whole concept of low-fat, in fact a lot of
my ballooning in the recent year was because of increasing of olive oil,
thinking that’s great. Also
thinking about the keto diet, and just dumping a lot of olive oil here and
there, eating a lot of cheese. And as soon as they got rid of that, within
a week my fasting blood sugar went from 150s into the 100s, within two weeks. I was down. So, I’m
assuming I’ve got pretty strong C-Peptide levels, and good beta cells, but
the reversal is very, very quick. And basically since then, I’ve just been
following this low-fat, whole-food, plant-based diet. Really following the
Mastering Diabetes principles, and diabetic condition was reversing really
quickly, enlarged liver. I mean, the enzyme levels were starting to
fall. And the weight was coming off very quickly. The first month I lost about 12 pounds, and
the second month it was another 10 pounds. So as I mentioned before, I’m a momentum based
guy, and just, it worked. So, where I am today? It’s been seven months, I’m down almost 60
pounds. So, I’m at 190 pounds versus 250 or 249. I would say my fasting blood
sugar on a daily basis are absolutely under 100, usually plus or minus a
couple of points around 90. So, weight is down, my A1c just last month
was 5.2. So, I dropped from my
highest at 7.4. I’m off Metformin, not taking any pills. By the way, I had
a stack of different pills out, for an enlarged liver I was told to take
milk thistle, I was taking some Ayurvedic pills. And for a year and a
half, two years, nothing was working, even though I was religious in those
herbal medicine. So, clearly they didn’t work. ALT just recently was 16. Definitely with fatty liver, enlarged liver,
diabetes, I had increasing cholesterol. So my cholesterol hits close to
200, I’ve had increasing LDL, triglycerides, and all that has been largely
reversed, and brought down quite a bit. So, most recently my total cholesterol is
149, right underneath that 150 mark for long-term health. HDL is 40, my LDL is 94, my triglycerides
are a little bit high, but it makes sense as you’re
losing weight, your body’s removing all those fatty acids, so it’s at
70. And everything else looks
great. My doctor after looking at the results basically
said, “Oh my God! What’s
going on? This just is a miracle” He’s never seen anything
like it, especially on a natural basis, and he wants
to know more. When you’re eating this way, and your sugar
numbers drop, your fasting blood sugar numbers drop, your cholesterol
drops so quickly. Your body is
thanking you, and you have to listen up for that. And so, those who are
doubting that this method works, let the numbers speak for itself.
