I have been a size 6 to 8 since high school, and after two children and several surgeries, it was difficult to maintain my size. About five years ago, I started gaining weight each year. I would eat clean by watching how I prepared foods, walk briskly for 4 to 5 miles almost every day, yet I still kept gaining. Believe me when I tell you that I have tried everything out there, but my metabolism was not working at all!
So on July 6th, 2015, at 173.5 lbs and a tight size 14, I began the Almased Diet. I started out by doing a five-day fast. For my shakes, I mixed 6 Tablespoons of the Almased powder with 8 oz of unsweetened almond or cashew milk, 2-3 oz of cold water, ¼ tsp of ground ginger, and a dash of ground cinnamon. I made homemade vegetable broth and brewed my own herbal tea.
Then on day six through seven, I began the reduction phase, adding one 500-700 calorie meal while choosing foods from all food groups. After the first week, I weighed myself and lost 8 lbs.* I could not believe it! During the next three weeks, I continued the reduction phase and was able to lose 3 lbs. each week, losing a total of 17 lbs for the first month!* I stuck to the plan and weighed myself every Monday and did not gain weight since I started.
In 5 months, I have lost a little over 37 lbs!* I am now wearing a loose size 8. In addition to losing weight, I sleep so much better at night now; my legs do not ache anymore, and I have gotten so many compliments on my skin. With all the vitamins and nutrients in the Almased, my body was getting everything it needed. I have so much energy now than before, and I continue to do my brisk walks and just recently started working out on different machines at a fitness center to tone up. I plan on continuing with the second phase of the Almased Diet until I reach my goal of 130 lbs.
Currently, I have ten friends and coworkers (including my very best friend and her mother are on it, two of our company Registered Nurses, the safety director’s husband, 3 of my close coworkers and a dear friend and her sister) that have started using Almased after seeing how awesome it has worked for me.
When I am finished with all four of the Almased phases, I would like to continue drinking one shake in the evenings just because it makes me feel better, and it definitely works! I will be turning 49 next month and feel better than I ever have! Almased is the best thing I ever did, and the best money I ever spent!
Thank you to Almased!
