How to Finally Lose Weight After Menopause
Lynn first came to see me in mid July at the suggestion of her doctor. She had struggled with weight since the age of 13 when puberty and the stress of her parents divorce lead to a 60 lb. weight gain in a short period of time. By the age of 15 Lynn was already on the yo-yo dieting cycle of trying programs like Weight Watchers only to lose the weight and gain it back again.
Now at age 53 Lynn came to me to change her lifestyle. She complained of carbohydrate and sweet cravings, gastrointestinal issues and knee pain. Although she was an avid exerciser her whole life an injury along with working full time had lead her into a more sedentary lifestyle. With the beginning of menopause, her weight was beginning to pile up around her abdominal area and she was ready to make a change.
Lynn was the perfect candidate for BodyDesigns Two Week Detox Plan. Her gut symptoms and inflammation told me that something was preventing her from being able to lose this weight. In addition, the types of foods she was eating were bringing on her cravings for sweets. Lynn sent me a testimonial regarding her experience on the Detox Plan and her Lifestyle Diet Plan that followed. Here is what she had to say:
“I lost 9 lbs. on The Two Week Detox Plan but it also changed my life in so many ways. Previous to the detox I craved carbohydrates and alcohol. I was also feeling irritable and anxious. After the first few days all my food cravings completely went away and I felt more in control of myself. I also had good energy. My anxiety disappeared, I felt very energetic and not hungry at all. My IBS symptoms are gone and I no longer have gas, bloating or general gastric irrigation. I no longer eat gluten and don’t miss it at all. The key for me was to eat on the schedule that Mary recommended not skipping snacks or meals so to avoid getting too hungry. The constant email support was great to have to answer my many questions. It is now 8 weeks after the program and I am following a Personal Diet Lifestyle Plan that Mary did for me and have lost a total of 30 lbs. I feel great and highly recommend this detox plan followed by a personal diet plan for everyone!”
In addition to the diet plan I recommended that Lynn add a Peak 8 into her workout routine. A Peak 8 is a high intensity interval program recommended by Dr. Mercola and allows you many benefits of exercise in a short period of time. The Peak 8’s only take 20 minutes so she was easily able to incorporate them into her busy life.
I am so proud of Lynn’s dedication! She is 11 lbs. for her goal weight and feels great! She still logs her food and stays accountable. I have no doubt she will meet her goal soon and maintain for a lifetime of good health.
