"At 407 lbs., I had become really depressed and was really in a bad place mentally. My father came to visit me before the spring semester of my sophomore year, and he told me (again) that he was very concerned about my weight. He said he could also tell that I was very unhappy. At dinner, he made me an offer to allow me to drop out of school and he would pay for me to go anywhere in the world to get help with losing the weight. I had heard about the Rice Diet from an old strength coach at SMU, and so that is the place I picked....
(Now) I don't take any medications and I went from 407 to 267 lbs."
"....after barely surviving after a heart attack in August....my doctors in Chicago were relentless to help me get better. They tried an angioplasty and stents. In February 1997, an angiogram revealed that the blockage in my arteries had returned, which the doctors assured me was not uncommon. How common was it I wondered when a 50-year old woman is rushed to surgery 10 minutes later for double heart bypass?
That was 12 years ago. I truly believe that the Rice Diet is responsible for where I am today - alive!"
