Carol's Step One Success Story

Carol's Step One Success Story
After watching statin side effects impact her husband’s life, when Carol was prescribed a statin medication, she initially refused.

“My doctor had already tried TWICE to put me on statins,” she said. “I had seen the side effects from my husband’s usage, so I refused the Rx. Doctor was not happy about it, but since my total cholesterol was only 232, she said she’d let it slide another year. That’s when my competitive spirit kicked in, and I thought, ‘I’ll fix this myself!’”.

Unsure of where to start, Carol started her research and discovered Step One Foods on Facebook. Hoping for the best, she decided to try the products.

“I was not skeptical - the science spoke to me,” she said. “I would say my attitude about trying the products was “hopeful!”

Carol started the Step One program in January 2023 and tested her health numbers in October 2023. Within 9 months, she lowered her total cholesterol by 31 points and her LDL cholesterol by 20 points!

Carol’s health numbers before the Step One program
Total cholesterol: 232
LDL cholesterol: 143
Blood pressure: 150/84
A1c: 5.9

Carol’s health numbers after the Step One program
Total cholesterol: 201
LDL cholesterol: 123
Blood pressure: 124/73
A1c: 5.4

“The most exciting thing for me about Step One Foods was the ease of correcting my bloodwork with these foods,” she said. “The fact that the foods are so easy to use and also delicious won me over! I’m a big fan!”

Carol is also enjoying an overall enhanced quality of life.

“One big thing, to me, is the lowering of inflammation that Step One Foods has done for my body,” she said. “It is amazing how much more comfortable I am with my joints, back, etc. It can only be this healthier lifestyle! I am also trying to incorporate more whole foods into my diet…I have been encouraged by Dr. Klodas’ podcasts/videos. Example: Eat an apple instead of applesauce! Makes sense, so I’m giving it a whirl!”

And if you’re on the fence about trying Step One Foods, here’s her advice to you.

“TRY these foods,” she said. “The cost is not prohibitive, the products are good, they are easy to use, and…just look at my numbers!”

How Carol prioritizes the 4 pillars of healthy longevity in her life: “[I enjoy]getting together with friends and laughing! I also get joy from my faith in the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit! Without that Trinity, I could never make it through a single day!”
