I am very pleased with Dr. V’s Ideal Protein Diet! I have been on the program for 10 weeks and to date I have lost 41.6 lbs and 30 inches. I love the program because it is allowing me to lose weight without surgery and without exercise. My goal is to first lose the weight or the fat, and then build up my muscle. Some people have asked me, “How much weight do you want to lose?” I say until I reach my goal. I have lost so many people in my immediate and extended family who have suffered from chronic disease like high blood pressure and diabetes. These diseases can be controlled as long as I stay in charge of what goes into my mouth. At 40 years old, I have decided to take control of my life and thwart the complications of the previously mentioned diseases. I am on “TEAM LIFE.”
I just had a conversation with my Trainer the other day. I told her how anxious I am to start working out again. When I have energy I feel so outgoing and I want to do the things I enjoy like weight training with my Trainer, playing tennis, softball, volleyball, etc.
I am particularly proud of myself because I have been on the program from Halloween until the present. I had no problem saying, “No” to the foods that I thought I could not live without, especially during the holidays. Food had become my source of comfort, but I realized that food was not making me happy, it was making me sick. In fact, I was on high blood pressure medication, but within 4 weeks, this program allowed me to wean off of the high blood pressure medication. Great right! I saved $400 per month, by getting off of that medication.
For those who intend to join me on this healthy lifestyle change as we embark on 2014, feel free to send me an email. If you don’t want to join this healthy journey, then I will still appreciate your support.
