I love when people send me their test results, or their before-and-after photos, when they’ve changed their life.
Kathy is a GSG Detox two-time graduate…..and the winner of a Blendtec Total Blender at my lecture.
We met in October, 2013, in Northern Virginia. She came to my next lecture, 9 months later, near Baltimore. Here you see the photos, with me, of Kathy before and after implementing a whole-foods diet.
Last Fall, she was just shy of 200 pounds, with cholesterol of 198, diagnosed pre-diabetic. She told me, “I didn’t like the way I felt. I had to wiggle into my chair at work. My thighs embraced each other as I walked, and my belly would sometimes cause the grocery store self-checkout machine to yell at me: ‘Please remove items from scanner scale!’”
Kathy realized she needed to do something. The day before Christmas, she started the GreenSmoothieGirl 26-day Detox. By the end, she’d lost 10 pounds. More importantly, she’d realized that she COULD make the switch, from the Standard American Diet, to a healthy, whole-foods lifestyle.
Each weekend, following GSG advice, she tried something new, adding one new habit. Her cholesterol dropped over 50 points in two months. Her doctor told her that her fasting blood sugar was back to normal range–out of danger for diabetes.
Kathy has lost nearly 50 pounds in the last 7 months! She’s done the Detox TWICE. She says,
“I feel better about myself and I couldn’t have done it without the tools and information you provide on your website and books. I am grateful for the work you have done in sharing your knowledge about foods and the food industry.”
Kathy, thank you for sharing your story!
