I love hearing from my readers – I’m sure all writers do. I didn’t really imagine that anyone would get in touch with me when I published my first one, although I carefully leave contact details in the backs of all of my books. Anyway, I’ve got used to it now, but it never palls, and I was thrilled to hear from Paul Beverley, of Norwich, in the UK, who had read my book on how I reduced my cholesterol and wanted to ask me some questions about soluble fibre, apples and oats (as you do). We corresponded back and forth a little, and I was pleased to see that he was doing well with his health.
Just a few days ago, I received an email from Paul with very good news. I should add that I quote this with his permission, and that both he and I agree that it’s not all down to me, and my suggestions based on my experience won’t help everyone with high cholesterol. But this is what he said, and it was SO LOVELY to read this:
I’ve just had the results, and I’m pleased to report that the BP is “normal” and the cholesterol is “normal”. The actual level is 4.5!
Yay! Way to go! Once again, thanks for the book. It was an inspiration, knowing that someone else had managed it.
A GP friend at church said, “No-one ever manages to get it down by diet and exercise by more than one point.”
All together now: “Oh yes they do!”
How lovely! Thank you, Paul, for getting in touch, and I’m so glad I could help – that’s what I do it all for!
