After I got pregnant, my weight shot up.

“I’ve been struggling with my weight ever since the birth of my son. He’s 25 years old now, and I had never gotten back down to my pre-pregnancy weight. And I tried everything. If I wasn’t dieting, I was gaining weight. It was just a vicious cycle. The less I ate, the more I gained. I tried to dress to hide it. Everyone would tell me you don’t look heavy, but I was heavy.

I woke up and the Food Lovers infomercial was on.

So one day, I was off work and we sleep with the television on, so that morning the Food Lover’s infomercial woke me up. And I was laying there listening to this gal on the infomercial tell me that you can eat the foods you love and lost weight. And I’m thinking, ‘Yeah, this is a infomercial,’ you know?

My husband said, “Why not try it?”.

But I kept listening, and it actually made sense, the things they were saying. So I Googled it later in the day, and all I found was positive reviews. And later my husband said, ‘Well, you might as well order it. We’ve tried everything else.’

I lost 6 pounds in the first week.

The rest is history. The kit came right before Christmas. And Christmas day, we were finished with all of our functions, and I thought, ‘Merry Christmas to me; I’m going to start this today.’ And I lost 6 pounds in the first week. I was eating the whole time. I was never hungry. I was discovering things that I didn’t realize that I liked.

It made sense because I knew that I had killed my metabolism by dieting so many years. And it made sense because I was eating wholesome food, good food, and a balanced meal. That’s the fat loss plate. It’s a protein, a fast carb and a slow carb, and they all work together to help your body get in fat-burning mode. The more you eat the more your metabolism burns as long as you’re eating the correct proportions and combinations of food. So instead of storing fat, you’re burning fat.

When my husband saw me losing, he tried it too.

And my husband, he didn’t follow in the beginning with me, but on New Year’s Day, he decided to start the program with me. And he lost a total of 47 pounds. And today, we’re both off of our high cholesterol medicine.

Now we’re both Food Lovers for life.

The biggest difference between Food Lovers and everything I’ve tried in the past is Food Lovers works. Food Lovers is a lifestyle; it’s not a diet. Diets deprive you. Diets have limitations. I don’t feel limited on this. I am never hungry on this program. In fact, the people I work with say I amaze them cause I eat all day long. I eat what I love, and I eat often.

And my energy level is great. I was at the bank the other day, and the teller said, ‘You just feel good all the time don’t ya?’ And I said, ‘I do now.’ I give Food Lovers full credit for that.

If you’re sitting there thinking this sounds too good to be true, I can tell you I was in your shoes seven months ago. It sounds too good to be true, but give it a chance because it works. It worked for me. I’m just your regular girl from Tennessee. I’m not getting paid anything to be here other than just the good feeling that I’m getting, which is priceless.”
