  1. Well done. You look amazing. It must be a whole lot easier for you to live on what is available than it was for our parents and grand parents with all the appliances we have now but it has taken a lot of determination on your part to keep to the diet.

    • Thank you, I think it’s important to experience a different way of life than the ones we are lucky enough to experience right now to keep me grounded. Thank you so much Franky xxxx C

  2. Carolyn, a lovely lady on a wonderful path to her success.
    Or rather More success, as you are doing so well.

  3. Oh Carolyn so very pleased for you. All the hard work you have put in and doesn’t it show! You are such a kind generous soul who deserves to be happy and contented. I know you can reach your goal so we’ll done you darling girl💕

  4. Your video is an inspiration and has come at the perfect time for me, you look amazing and to hear you speak so honestly about your past overeating was so helpful to me as I have done exactly the same , I am a comfort eater. I have lost 3 stone, am off the blood pressure tablets, blood test results this week show that I am no longer pre-diabetic and cholesterol has come right down but would like it down a little more ,I need to lose at least another 3 stone but am struggling with the emotional eating at the moment and have put on a few pounds so I am a bit miffed. Like you I eat mainly plant based vegan but will binge on carbs when I am low ,watching your video has given me the kick up the bum ( which is now smaller ) that I need so onwards and upwards ,thank you , Chrissie x

  5. I am so proud of you. It’s amazing progress. And so brave to put all your private and sensitive information out into the world.

    I have finally printed out the ration stuff and will start planning this week’s meals using it.

    Best wishes Suze

  6. I take algae Omega 3 softgels for inflammation ( for skin ). Omega 3 is important! I do take multivits every so often for an iron, D3 and B12 boost. Where do you get your iron from Carolyn? I am vegetarian, not vegan, so my iron sources include eggs. Where do you get your D3 from? Again mine is from eggs (can’t have dairy due to lactose intolerance), and it used to be sun, but I have to stay out of that for the time being sadly, until my skin inflammation clears up. I hope your hot flushes calm down. These electric ones on eBay might be better for you: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/385703262942?var=653496696023 I found it helpful when the dermatitis made my face burn.

    • Like you I am a fan of Omega 3 Algae Oil capsules. I take a D3 supplement for 3 months in deepest winter but apart from that I don’t take any supplements for vitamins and minerals. I do an annual blood test to check on major levels and my D3 is good and Iron optimal. I eat a lot of wholefoods plant-based, tons of leafy greens, lots of raw salads, legumes/beans. I think my B12 gets topped up by my use of Marmite and the odd sprinkle of nutritional yeast (which I’ve always used in stews). I hope your skin stays well and thank you so much for the link, I’m going to check that out now before I have to head out to work. Thanks so much and have a lovely day!! C xxxxx
