Blood Pressure Down

It's been about three years since I started using DietPower, and I've gone from 235 to 160 pounds. My blood pressure today was 122/72 (not bad for a 56-year-old with high blood pressure), and my body fat is 13.7 percent. DietPower didn't make it easier, but helped make it work. By having good information on what I was eating and how much I was exercising, and being able to evaluate the impact of my diet, I've learned a lot of positive, life-long habits for great eating.

New Lifestyle

I am 62 and have always considered myself really healthy—great cholesterol, good HDL, low triglycerides, excellent blood pressure, only 10 to 15 pounds overweight, worked out with weights and rode a stationary bike every other day.

But a few months ago, I experienced chest pain while skiing. I failed a stress test and was told I had at least two serious blockages. After putting in two stents, doctors told me to change my diet or plan on coming back often—assuming I didn't die on my way to a hospital.

I took the advice seriously. I armed myself with DietPower and 10 new books on nutrition.

I had been on the Atkins Diet for years, eating lots of red meat, eggs, and bacon. The American Heart Association and my cardiologist suggested I might as well point a gun at my head and pull the trigger. So I started eating fish, chicken, vegetables, and fruit. I eat a pound of fresh fruit every day.

I also reduced my Body Mass Index from 25 to 22 in less than 45 days, by switching to whole-grain bread and making soups from scratch using fresh vegetables, beans, and legumes. My wife and I have totally given up red meat. As a man who ate steak filets three times a week for 50 years, I can assure you, that is a lifestyle change.

I would never have achieved any of this without your software. DietPower made learning to eat right very easy. For all I know, it saved my life. And if nothing else, it's helping me lose that little potbelly that I've hated for these past six years. Thank you for creating a program that makes it easy to watch what I eat.

Cholesterol Lower

I just got the results from my blood work on Monday. All of the numbers are down! Total cholesterol, triglycerides—everything but my good cholesterol, which is up!

Sodium Tracker

I am a heart-transplant patient, and DietPower is very valuable to me for tracking salt. I also use the custom variables to graph my morning, midday, and evening blood sugar levels. I'm promoting this program to my friends.

Quintuple Bypass

I had a five-bypass open-heart operation 12 years ago. DietPower is a significant factor in my not having another one. It is the only way I can maintain excellent nutrition and assure that my calorie intake does not exceed my calorie burn. I appreciate your expertise and can't thank you enough.
