In 2018, Chef Alexa and Sam, owners of Low Carb Revolution had to make a big change. Sam was diagnosed with severe Type 2 Diabetes. Shares Sam, “The diagnosis was the impetus for us to take a look at our lives and diet to see what we could do. Cutting out refined sugar was the first thing. We knew that we would be changing what we ate and how we exercised to combat diabetes. Together, we’ve lost over 175 pounds and a lot of inches while gaining strength, stamina, and energy. I was able to go off insulin and other diabetes medication in just two months. My doctor let us know she had never taken anyone off medication who had this diagnosis. We made her day!”

About Executive Chef Alexa
Shares Chef Alexa, “My best non-scale victory is that I triumphed over breast cancer. Luckily for me, weight loss led to its detection. The doctors and oncology staff that treated me often remarked on the few negative side effects I experienced and my positive attitude. I credit my low carb lifestyle and exercise program with helping me battle it and win.”
