And this is the kind of food that helps you lose weight, reach your optimal weight, reverse disease, and get off medication. How awesome is that?!?!?
I am feeling great and am at my goal weight. I lost 25 pounds easily from September 2013 - February 2014, the 5 months before my wedding. And I don't exercise obsessively. It's all about what we put in our mouths. It's The Food! as Dr. McDougall says.
Each time I get out some clothes that I haven't worn in a while, they are big on me. My good friend Kelli is moving, so she is de-cluttering her house. She asked if I would be interested in going through clothes she is giving away. I stopped over last night for some free closet shopping. I know that Kelli and I weigh the same now, but she is a marathon runner and pure muscle. I still have some body image issues and am not pure muscle. She is smaller than me, but I thought maybe some things might fit.
I start going through the pile and get to the pants and shorts. She has items that are SIZE 4 and SIZE 2. My brain says....No way in H-E-double-hockey-sticks are you going to fit into a size 2 or 4, probably not even a 6. My current wardrobe is all Size 8 and 10. I pick a few cute things and try them. They FIT! Almost everything! The pile I took home includes pants and shorts in SIZE 4 AND SIZE 2!!!
I still can't quite believe it, but I know I feel great, I love the healthy plant based food that I eat. I know that my clean diet delivers optimal health and I am seeing the changes in my body and I am loving them. I hope this inspires you to learn more and join me in a lifestyle (NOT a diet) that allows you to eat a big plate of waffles and reach your health and weight goals. Life is good.
