Carolyn's Step One success story
Two years ago, Carolyn was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Shortly after that diagnoses, she was also informed by her physician that her cholesterol was higher than normal and he recommended prescribing her statins to bring her numbers into the healthy range.
“Knowing the muscle issues that Parkinson’s brings, I wanted to lower my cholesterol naturally,” she says.
So, she decided to try Step One Foods.
“I saw an advertisement for it on Facebook and decided to try it,” she says. “Before starting Step One, my total cholesterol was 227; LDL 143; HDL 50; Triglycerides 171.”
After 6 weeks of using the Step One Foods, Carolyn’s LDL dropped over 30 points! In fact, all of her health numbers improved. Her total cholesterol improved to 184, HDL cholesterol to 51 and triglycerides dropped to 118.
“I was so surprised,” she says. “And to think, I was afraid to go get my blood work done because I didn’t think it would have changed much, if any.”
Carolyn wasn’t just surprised at her results. She also was surprised at how easy it was to incorporate Step One Foods into her lifestyle.
“I was shocked that my results were all within completely normal ranges,” she says. “And all without making any other changes in my diet or exercise or life in general. It was so easy!”
Her results were so impressive that her physician sent her a congratulations note and refrained from prescribing her any statin medications.
“I am so excited about not having to take another pill in my day,” she says. That means no new side effects to deal with.”
In addition to improved cholesterol, Carolyn has been able to better manage her weight and she plans to continue to use Step One Foods for the foreseeable future.
“I need to lose weight, and this, at least, has stopped the gain,” she says. “I will keep eating two Step One products a day for the foreseeable future and work on eating less processed foods. I am also recommending Step One to everyone I know who are dealing with high cholesterol.”
Try Carolyn’s favorite products: “I like the Anytime Sprinkles best because of their versatility - I love sprinkling it on my hot cereal in the cooler weather and yogurt in the warmer weather, for breakfast. I also like to use the Chocolate Walnut Bar for a mid-afternoon snack.”
