I have been overweight almost my whole life. I had tried every type of diet you can imagine from calorie counting to fasting, but I could never stick with any plan for very long. I felt like a failure, and my weight continued to balloon until I reached an all-time high weight of 460 pounds in February 2014. My boyfriend had started following Dr. Westman’s low carb, high fat eating plan in January after reading an article in a national publication for women. He encouraged me to try it, but I never thought I could live without the foods I loved so much, namely anything starchy or sweet.Amy Palmieri
Dr Westman has decided to manufacture a full range of products that are very low in TOTAL carbohydrates with the right fat to protein ratio. He has taken great care to make a product line that should not affect glucose and Ketone numbers. The Adapt Program counts TOTAL carbs as opposed to Net or Impact carbs. This leaves the consumer with very few options. You can purchase these products with confidence knowing that all the Adapt Products comply with the Adapt Program.
