- Weight Loss -
It's a miracle! I have lost 20 lbs in only 18 days on your food plan. I can't tell you how happy and excited I am! I have not strayed for even one bite and have followed the plan to the letter from day 1. The most meaningful thing you said to me on the phone was "Don't cheat on me, Ann". When you made it personal, I knew I couldn't let you or me down. For someone who has struggled with weight loss all of her life, this is miraculous in and of itself. I've let myself down so many many times with other diets. I don't feel hopeless about my weight anymore. With your help, I'm doing it! The most amazing thing is that I never feel hungry and I have absolutely no cravings as I've always had before. I am so grateful to you, Karen.

I got your weight loss CD in December of last year and did a kind of hit-and-miss try at losing weight and you know the results. I had been eating beans three times a day and the veggies sometimes. No results.
I got real serious about this six days ago as I just got fed up with half measures. In just six days my insulin dose has gone from 80 units a day of Lantus to 40, and from 48 units of NovoLog to 28, and still dropping.
My diabetes nurse at the V.A. is wondering what hit me. I have had to call twice this week for guidance on my insulin dosages, and I love it!
I had no idea that there was a way out of this labyrinth but now I know and am a dedicated dieter for life, and I will just keep eating veggies, beans, and meat, chicken, or fish in the manner you lay out in your CD.
I just want to say may God bless you and the ministry you are in. Thank you so much from an old slow starter.

Seven months later:
I am still on the diet and am still losing weight, drinking lots of water, and enjoying the benefits of not having to take insulin and being 61 pounds lighter.
I have shared my DVD and my CDs and also the book I ordered, And They Said It Wasn’t Possible, with a number of other people. So far six to seven people have started the diet and all are very pleased with the results. One lady in church told me she had never been able to lose more than three pounds and was shocked to discover she had lost six pounds the first week.
I am so grateful to the Lord that he used someone else here in our church to tell me about a friend in Wisconsin who had gone on a bean diet and lost weight and also got off of insulin. At first I was skeptical and my first efforts were not effective. I didn't use all five points of attack on weight and my weight loss was minimal. Then I got tired of fooling around, got serious, and applied all five points—and the weight started to come off. But the amazing thing was how fast my insulin requirements changed! I had to stay in contact with my endocrinologist at the V.A. and she walked me through it.
I want to thank you for your kind interest and express my gratitude to Karen for sticking to her guns and learning the way out of this self-defeating pattern of eating that most of us have followed all our lives. When I became diabetic the doctors and nurses all said diabetes couldn’t be cured, and I believed it. Not anymore. I tell anyone who will listen: there is a way out.
Thank you so much,

Twelve years ago I came to Karen seeking help for my weight problem. At that time, I had been trying to exercise with the Curves program to accomplish this feat. After a few weeks of working with their equipment, I noticed I was becoming short-winded, so I decided to stop by the local clinic to see if this might be heart related. Coming in with this complaint caused a big stir. I was given an EKG, which was normal, but that wasn't satisfactory. They put me in ICU, ordered some more tests, and wanted to give me morphine for pain (which I didn't have!). I promptly refused the drug, stating they didn't have a diagnosis for heart problems yet, thus I would not take this drug. The nurse agreed. After a night in the hospital and over $4000 in bills I was released with no heart problems.
I contacted Karen, who after checking my blood tests determined I only had a panic attack, due to the stress I was putting on my body with the excessive exercising. She told me that I didn't need to do this strenuous exercise to lose weight, only eat right and do some moderate exercise, like walking, if I chose. That diet became a whole new way of eating for me and some members of my family. I now understood the importance of what we eat and how the body works to keep us healthy, if we give it the proper nutrition. I lost over 60 pounds with Karen's diet and have kept it off for over ten years now (picking up a few pounds during the winter months when I'm unable to get out and walk—but I do walk when the temps are 20 or above).
During the past 12 years I've only been sick once and I knew my immune system was weakened at that time, due to all the activities I was involved in. I feel like Karen gave me a real treasure when she shared with me the tools to keep my body healthy, enabling me to have the stamina and energy to go all day long and accomplish many of my dreams in the process. This was all in my late 60s, so never let anyone tell you, "It's too late," or you can't lose weight after you reach 50, etc. All things are possible when you believe in your Creator and yourself.
Thank you, Karen, for all you have done for me and my family!!
