Hello my name is Christina. I always have been obese since childhood. In my school I was not only bigger than my classmates, but I weighed more than many of my teachers. I tried many diets over the years, weightwatchers, Jenny craig, and Atkins to name a few. 5 years ago, I decided to end my weight problem once and for all by having gastric sleeve sugery. I lost almost 100 pounds but I gained nearly half back within two years. I was dissapointed and ashamed. I tried more low carb high protien diets, but I ended up binging and getting fatter and sicker. I realized that surgery had made only my stomach smaller, I didn't change my mindset or cure me of my addiction of processed food.
My plantbased journey began when I was introduced to Dr.Garth Davis's book, Proteinaholic. After reading the book, I discovered why I regained so much weight and why weightloss surgery isn't the solution to America's obesity crisis. I found Dr.Carney's group through facebook after seeing Chef Aj's video about juicing and blending. I discovered the reasons why I wasn't loosing weight, and why dieting failed me in the past. I keep reading blog after blog, topic after topic. I discovered so for information that the doctors didn't tell me. I learned that I had an addiction to refined foods, and that whole foods not only help you loose weight, but are the key to health and vitality. I started the starch smart system several days ago, and so far I feel a lot better. I'm so glad that I don't have to measure, weigh, or track my food anymore. I no longer have to count calories or carbs, and I eat until I'm full and satisfied. Thank you so much Dr. Carney for your information you have provided. I hopefully I can help others how have gotten bariatric surgery or considering it.Post is under moderationStream item published successfully. Item will now be visible on your stream.
