I mentioned Shape ReClaim in my recipe for pancakes, here. I wanted to tell you how this program changed my life.
When I began this program I was 190.2lbs. At 5 foot 3 inches I was obese. Completely stressed about my weight, my health and it was awful. I was already on a gluten free, dairy free and soy free diet. It didn’t seem to matter. It helped me before – back in 2014 when I first learned I had Hashimoto’s. I lost a little weight, my lab results were better and overall, I felt better following this diet. I knew I needed to continue this diet due to having an auto immune condition (and really, I believe all of us benefit from a gluten free diet! Find out why, here)
So, why now – after having my child was my body holding on to my weight I gained during my pregnancy? My little boy was 1 1/2 years old! Diet didn’t seem to work. Exercise wasn’t working like it should have been. I was upset. Stressed. Every time I looked in the mirror I subconsciously was causing myself more stress. I had decreased libido. My elbows and wrists ached. My arms would go numb at night if they were in one position too long – waking me up and making my sleep restless.
I don’t get any reimbursement from this company, no “kick backs” I am giving you these numbers, my testimony because I truly feel passionate this program can change your life. It is more than a “fad” diet, more than “short term” results – this will help you realize your addiction to food; the grip it has on you mentally. It will reduce inflammation. It also teaches you what foods fuel your body. By the time you get to “phase 3/maintenance” you will know what works for you, and what doesn’t. The knowledge is empowering. Your body “resets” – and your gut microbiome becomes healthy. And bonus? My immune system was boosted! OH! And my labs? They were perfect!!
Just for fun I am going to give you real numbers. Below is my actual weigh and measures taken. Please note – my results haven’t ended when I went to “phase 3” or maintenance. I lost an additional 9 pounds…. and additional inches were lost… and it hasn’t stopped. I am healthy weight – and I am making muscle and feeling great!
This is a physican monitored program. Which for me was a relief. I don’t do “fad diets” I don’t do “diet pills”. I know those don’t work and are not healthy. It was important to me to have a holistic doctor monitor me and because of that I didn’t go into starvation mode (which often happens on a lower fat diet, lower carb type diet). This way, the toxic fat (did you know that fat HOLDS toxins – sigh!) melts off and your progress doesn’t stall out completely.
If you are fighting a (seemingly) loosing battle with weight loss, join pains, fatique and inflammation I encourage to visit Shape Reclaims website. There they can give you more testimonials, direction and you can find a doctor who is certified in this life changing program.
