Low-carber Sara Erickson featured in North Carolina obesity documentary
I LOVE it when the low-carb lifestyle is featured in the media in a positive light. Whether it is on the local level and especially on the national level, these stories may be just the thing that an overweight or obese person needs to get started livin' la vida low-carb in earnest! And that would be a BEAUTIFUL thing!
So when one of my faithful "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" blog readers told me that she and her husband were in a documentary about obesity, I was just a wee bit proud and excited! My reader's name is Sara Erickson and she hails from Raleigh, North Carolina. They both appeared on WRAL-TV earlier this month for a fascinating look at diet and health.
Incidentally, both Sara and her husband are patients of Duke University low-carb researcher and practioner Dr. Eric Westman, who I recently interviewed at my podcast show as well as at my blog last year. I KNOW they are in good hands with Dr. Westman as they travel down this low-carb weight loss journey to better health. Dr. Westman also appears in the documentary.
CLICK HERE to see this 30-minute video that is well worth the time to watch. Sara and her husband along with Dr. Westman appear at the beginning of the segment and then again at the very end. It was filmed back in January and Sara said she was "shocked" by how much different she looks now since she has lost 35 pounds since it was filmed.
Although the focus of the documentary was not on the specific diet used by the people featured, it was still a great experience for Sara Erickson and her husband as they go through this low-carb weight loss journey. Please feel free to share your comments about the documentary so that Sara can be encouraged by you. I know she'll be reading! :)
