Like many of you I have struggled with mid-life weight gain for a variety of reasons, some under my control and some not. Since the beginning of the year I have tried a couple of weight loss programs with no success. My body seemed to be out of whack (that would be the medical term) and I have had number of nagging health issues for a couple of years now. In researching a good cleanse program for my patients, I stumbled across the Standard Process 21 Day Purification Program. It is composed of whole foods plus supplements that contain vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to support all major organs. The program looked good and sounded simple so I thought I would test it before recommending it to my patients never even thinking about a weight loss component. I started and three days later I had lost 3 lbs, not so unusual I thought, it was probably water weight. I continued, one week later I had lost another 6.5 lbs (9.5 total). Better still; I was sleeping great, my usual high energy had returned, and my hair stopped falling out. WOW this was GREAT!!!!! It was a Eureka moment on day 17 when I weighed and had lost a total of 13 lbs. To say I am thrilled and motivated is an understatement.
Another bonus to the program is I haven’t been hungry and it hasn’t been difficult to stick with it, even sitting with a friend eating a noisy bowl of popcorn right in front of me. I am committed to lose a total of 50 lbs so I thought I would do the “Biggest Loser” thing and let the world watch my progress. I will keep you updated.
