On October 18th, 2018, my doctor told me I had high cholesterol and was worried about it. I’ve been battling (and losing in the wrong way) my weight for years – as long as I can remember really. It was kind of a battle of will really. I’d get started losing weight and then a holiday or some kind of thing would derail me and I’d fall off the wagon.
I was contemplating doing something about my weight again but that talk with my doctor was the push I needed in the right direction.
A couple notes real quick: first, I don’t eat multiple bowls of noodles every day. I sample and review – so at most, I have 10% of a bowl. I wear shades because I’m legally blind and light sensitive, not because I’m trying to look cool. Being legally blind means you can see, but it’s really quite crummy vision.
The Ramen Rater Diet: Episode 1
After six months and a lot of walking and big changes, I returned to my doctor was was elated with my progress. People were noticing and commenting about it too, so I decided to make the first episode of The Ramen Rater Diet.
The Ramen Rater Diet: Episode 2
A full year later to the day, I visited my doctor. This time, I walked to the appointment. In the second episode, I outline what I’ve been doing, diet changes and all sorts of things I’ve run up against and found during this process.
As with last time, I did another video showing how I use the Hakubaku Mochi Barley as a part of my diet. I really think this was pivotal in losing weight and especially lowering my cholesterol levels along with exercise and fish oil.
Well, I’m going to keep doing what I’ve been doing. I seem to just keep losing about 11 pounds a month, and my goal is 164 pounds. That’ll be 201 pounds. Then it will be all about maintaining that weight. So I suppose there will be an episode 3 of The Ramen Rater Diet coming your way soon!
