Name: Magda Abt
Height: 5 feet, 4 inches
Before Weight: 160 pounds
How I Gained It: I gained weight because I didnt have any self control I ate whatever I wanted, and didnt think I would gain weight. I would eat pizza every day, but I wouldnt just stop at one slice Id eat a lot. I never watched my portion sizes.
I also ate tons of candy all day. I was always around people who were eating unhealthy things and so I would too. I was eating way too much sugar.
Breaking Point: My breaking point was when a woman asked me when my baby was due but I wasnt pregnant!
Also, one day I tried to put my pants on and I couldnt even get them buttoned I had to put a rubber band through the loop instead. I thought, this is horrible. I know I could buy bigger clothes but I just refused to go past a certain size. I was determined to get back to a size I felt comfortable with, and thats when I discovered Dr. Michael Azizs Perfect 10 Diet.
How I Lost It: I lost my weight by following Dr. Azizs diet, and I have now made it my way of life. I found the plan difficult in the first week, then it became easier everyday. I now find it effortless.
The diet focuses on balancing 10 hormones. There are three stages to the diet, including a final maintenance stage. Grains and alcohol are banned for the first part but can be added in gradually. Sweets arent allowed when youre losing weight but can be enjoyed occasionally once youre in the maintenance phase. However, Ive found that I do not miss eating high sugar-content foods like candy, regular ice-cream, or any regular or artificially sweetened soft-drinks. These days, I rely on items like include hard boiled eggs, almonds and seafood especially shrimp to give me energy. I also enjoy exercising three times a week.
Ive given Dr. Azizs book to everyone I know. Its changed my life. I used to have a lot of lower back pain because all the extra weight I was carrying was all in my stomach. That disappeared when I lost the weight. I feel healthy and alive, and dont feel sluggish anymore. I have so much more energy these days. Im also a lot more confident now when people look at me I feel great!
I took me three months to lose the weight and I still follow the diet because its a healthier way of life.
After Weight: 125 pounds
