Lost Weight, Gained a Smile and a New Outlook!
Today is my last day of the 30 Day Detox! In 30 days, I have lost six pounds without being hungry, counting calories, or feeling deprived. The food on a Protective Diet is delicious. The support that Julie, Jerry, and the rest of the PD family provide is the most caring, thoughtful, and knowledgeable I have ever received while trying to learn a new way of eating. The Protective Diet Education
classes and the live chats are such an amazing source of information. Julie really makes things easy to understand and practical. I have always liked cooking, but last night as I was prepping food I was so excited to be in my “Workplace for Wellness”, so proud that I am nourishing myself and my family with real food that will support their health and mine! I feel great that I have transitioned to veganism and am living my life in such a way that I respect the other living beings on the earth while I am also reducing the environmental impact on our planet. My energy level has increased, in fact the last few days I have woken at a little before six with no alarm clock and wide awake, the way I used to when I was a teen! These 30 days have been much more about what I’ve gained than the six pounds I’ve lost. I feel that I have the tools now to make these changes sustainable. If I ever need help or encouragement it is always there. I have gained a new appreciation for what I am capable of, new cooking skills, and such a feeling of accomplishment that I found a plan, stuck to it, and now have a path to optimal health for the rest of my life. Here’s to the rest of my life on a Protective Diet!!!! Thank you to Julie, Jerry, and my PD family!!!
