At the end of the year, I was 50 lbs overweight, having chest pains and feeling tired most if the time. Sleeping through the night was a near impossibility and my thoughts were often incoherent and blurry. Digestion was a continuous challenge with constant bloating and abdominal discomfort. After only 3 weeks into this program, my blood pressure dropped significantly and my chest discomfort had nearly ceased. I started losing weight in the 4th week and by the first of March, 2010 I had lost 30 lbs. Within another month my bloating had totally gone away and I started to feel rested in the morning when I would get out of bed. My need for sleep went from 8-9 hours to 6-7 hours a night without feeling “groggy” or grouchy when I would wake up at 6:30 am. My sugar craving on a scale of one to ten was a TEN at the time I began the program. By the fourth month, I could look at Snickers bar and not have to have it or any other sugary food that I used to eat late at night. My “foggy” thinking was moving to a much greater clarity of concentration; no more did I forget where I was in my Sunday morning sermon!
What a joy after 6 months with Alternacare; I have lost 50 lbs and I feel like a new man having gone from a 44 waist to a 36 pant size. Life is GOOD!
