"I struggled for years to lose my weight. I always ate healthy-no sugar, white flour, measured portions, juicing vegetables, tons of water, tons of exercise. It was always so frustrating! I think as I aged, my metabolism slowed down but once I hit menopause,"
"forget it, no matter how much I tried, weight loss stopped completely. In a leap of faith and desperation, I purchased a plan for 3 months.I was very nervous about the food plan because It seemed like so little. I was also nervous because I am an orthodox Jew who keeps Shabbos. That means that every week is like "Thanksgiving Dinner". The 1st few weeks I felt a bit woozy. I followed Barbara's advice to stay hydrated. I knew that my body was detoxifying. After a few weeks, my headaches went away and i felt excellent. I was never hungry and never craved foods. I worked out a plan that helped me enjoy Shabbos and stick to the program. I lost 35 pounds and have kept it off for a year. 3 times over the year I have put on beads again just to get back to my goal weight after overeating during the holiday season. I am very careful not to go over a certain weight and if I do, I put my beads back on for 1 week. It's amazing.
I learned so much from Barbara-she was an amazing and supportive mentor. She taught me that if i feel hungry or have cravings that it's a sign of dehydration and that I have to drink fluids with electrolytes.
Also-I had horrible warts frozen, and burned with acid many times and they always came back. I feel that this diet was so detoxifying that my warts went away after 3 months. and never came back. Unbelievable."
