Treflyn is half the weight he used to be

Treflyn is 76 years old and is from Wales, in the United Kingdom. Early in life, he realized he was obese. He has fought with his weight for most of his life since then.

In 2019, Treflyn decided to turn his back on the way that he had been eating and living. He had always tended to put on weight. And like most people, he had managed to lose weight but also to put it on again. By his 40’s, he was genuinely overweight. Along his weight loss journey, Treflyn saw Dr. Joanne McCormack, an advocate of the Low Carbohydrate Diet on Youtube. He realized she was from nearby Warrington, so he met with her. As a result, he started running multiple weekly support group meetings for Dr. McCormack.

On January 19th, 2019, he took things a step further and went to eating one meal a day, or “OMAD”, cutting out carbs and junk food completely. This helped him lose more weight.

After he learned about the ketogenic diet, Treflyn started eating more fat and less protein but found that his weight loss stalled. He decided that his weight loss was better supported by a high-protein diet that is lower in fat and very low-carbohydrate. Treflyn says, “I realized…all that fat on your body, it’s stored food, I said to people ‘grab hold of that, well that’s, you know, Christmas dinner 2017, that’s your birthday.’ We’re walking around with food on our bodies, and yet we’re sticking food in our mouths!”

Over the course of his weight loss journey, he has lost 135 pounds, which is half of his body weight. He originally weighed 270 pounds.

Treflyn focuses on protein. “I don’t skimp on the protein. I eat one meal a day, and have been for four years… I’ve done multiple 96-hour fasts, because every so often, I have a blowout, I get it wrong. I can’t eat one biscuit. Now, you might think that’s good, no, I have to eat the whole packet, you know?” Like many of us, he finds that it’s hard to only eat a little of something that is sweet: “I’m a carbohydrate addict, really, you know.”

At one point before his diet, on a trip to Spain, Treflyn had to rent a mobility scooter because he had trouble walking. He has certainly improved since then. Now, he says “I don’t have those issues. I can get up off the floor unaided; I can stand up very quickly. I don’t have pains.”

Treflyn finds that most people know that they are eating unhealthy foods. “That’s what we do; we are self-harming, we’re screwing up our own lives, our own wonderful God-given bodies.” He continues his commitment to teaching people to eat a low-carb carnivore diet, scheduling meetings in a local pub. He finds logic in a carnivore diet, saying, “If it works, it can’t be wrong, and if it doesn’t work, it can’t be right.”
