“I weighed 407 pounds and was struggling with diabetes, high blood pressure, acid reflux, asthma and sleep apnea.”
I accomplished it all by following the diet that Dr. Lee created for lowering my insulin levels—and that meant more vegetables, while avoiding bread, oatmeal, cereals, pasta, rice, corn, potatoes, oranges and grapes.
Being on Dr. Lee’s diet really did save my life—just like he said on the day I met him. Thank you so very much, Dr. Lee.

“I am now completely off the three major prescriptions.”
Dr. Lee gave me back my life, literally. He saved me from the total fatigue and exhaustion that made it difficult to function each day. Plus—as if that wasn’t …
enough—I now have tons of energy, and I look great after losing 22 pounds! I get compliments almost daily from coworkers and friends.
It has been five years since Dr. Lee got me to my healthy weight and life- style. Because of that, I am now completely off the three major prescriptions I had been taking for 20 years.
Dr. Lee is incredible for helping me build such a healthy lifestyle!” — Debbie Cook
“It’s amazing how weight just creeps up on you.”
Somehow I had gained almost 30 pounds slowly. It’s amazing how weight just creeps up on you. I had just adapted, thinking nothing of it. I also did not weigh …
myself. What I did notice is that I had this bump on my belly where my waist once was slim, and that was really starting to bother me!
The day I finally stepped on the scale I could not believe where I was. Addi- tionally, my blood pressure and blood sugar were elevated and I was having to take medications to address those issues. I sought out Dr Lee to help me.
I wanted a quick fix and I knew he would have the answers. He did have the answers… just not a quick fix as I was hoping. It had taken time to get to where I was, and it was going to take some time to get back to where I really wanted—and needed—to be.
To help reduce my appetite and food intake, he started me on Byetta® and then transitioned to Symlin®. These both really worked to help control my hunger. They also helped with my blood sugar. I did lose some weight, al- though slowly—probably because I was not ready to give up that red wine I drank every night!
Dr. Lee understood, yet encouraged me to at least limit the wine. After all, the best taste is in the first sips. Then, after reducing my wine, Dr. Lee started me on the HCG Diet.
Wow, what a change in my life. I have lost over 25 pounds in 30 days. For someone who loves food, I was amazed that I could do this, and it wasn’t even that hard. The wine did have to go for a while. Although Dr. Lee now allows me one glass a week.
It’s an amazing difference in the way I look at food now. I was certain wine and sweets would be the hardest to live without. What I found out is that those were easy to go without on this diet. What I craved was cheese. The human body is so interesting. I am very happy with achieving the weight loss and getting back to where I really needed to be.
And there are wonderful side benefits. My blood pressure has returned to normal and my sugar levels are better. It is so encouraging to see and feel re- sults when you are trying to lose weight. I thank Dr Lee for his support and creativeness to help with my weight loss.

”Life is beautiful!”
…head of my bed and drinking alkaline water, he has taken away my acid reflux and given me a wonderful feeling. Then, when I told Dr. Lee about wanting to lose weight, he started me on Symlin®. I have already lost 18 pounds and find that I don’t feel tired and sleepy any more. Life is beautiful!

“My energy has fully returned.”
TIA in 2000 and frequently experienced lightheadedness and near fainting episodes.
With treatment from Dr. Lee, which included some nutraceuticals, my weight is now 157 pounds and I no longer take any high blood pressure medi- cation, with my blood pressure being now normal. I am able to enjoy long walks and climbing mountains in western North Carolina without any symp- toms. My energy has fully returned and I am again experiencing my former joy of living.

“The proof is in the pudding.”
In the first conversation I had with Dr. Lee regarding my newly diagnosed diabetes, I mentioned my concern for having to go down that well-travelled road toward ….
insulin use. He reassured me that what he saw was a person that would not have to go down that road, and that my diabetes could be kept at bay with some changes in my lifestyle. At first it was a simple plan of watching what I ate and monitoring my blood sugars. Things seemed to go well, but I am a self confessed “foodie”—one that loves to cook and eat!
Over the last five months I’ve been following an approach suggested by Dr. Lee that, I will admit, for the first two weeks was tough; but I knew if I could do it one day at a time, then I could probably move on with it.
Well, “the proof is in the pudding,” as they say. After the first six weeks my weight loss was 24 pounds. My other numbers were great as well. My A1C was now 5.5, my cholesterol ratio was 3.9 (never before had it been under 5) and to top it off my good cholesterol had gone to 44. That was the best ever recorded for me, and all these things mean better health for me. The praise from Dr. Lee came fast and with a smile.
Guidance and knowledge are very important tools in the battle we all face in order to reach and maintain better health. And it has been my good fortune to get my tools from Dr. Edwin Lee.
