Next up in our Motivational Monday series is the story of Rosanne Dutzer from Colorado.
When menopause hit, Rosanne put on 15 pounds that she Just. Could. Not. Lose.
As a former personal trainer, Rosanne knew what to do. And while she wasn’t expecting miracles, she did figure that eating right and exercising (every day!) would help take the weight off.
And it did.
“The kicker was if I ate one regular meal, I'd gain everything back overnight.”
What a waste of effort!
“I was feeling depressed and frustrated. Something had to change.”
Then Rosanne’s friend let her in on a little secret.
“Her doctor had recommended RealDose Weight Loss Formula No. 1 for her, and she dropped the weight quickly.”
So Rosanne decided to give it a whirl.
Being a fitness professional, Rosanne knew a supplement alone wasn’t going to work miracles. So she studied the Fat Loss Fast Start booklet cover to cover.
When she finished, she realized she’d been subsisting on a carbs-only diet. From that day on, she started to fill her plate with veggies and beans.
And immediately, her energy soared.
I’m not surprised. Carbs convert into sugar in the body almost immediately. So while yes, they were giving Rosanne an immediate burst of energy, the sugar rush left her just as fast. What follows is a major blood-sugar crash, which left Rosanne with that depleted, head-on-the-desk feeling.
Veggies and beans — complex carbs coupled with protein — are a much better choice because they replace this roller coaster ride with a steady energy supply that kept Rosanne going full force.
The benefits continue
Boundless energy wasn’t the only advantage to Rosanne’s new eating plan. The weight began to melt away.
Rosanne’s husband approved.
“He calls me his ‘Smokin’ Hot Trophy Wife,’” she says.
But even that’s not the best part about dropping the weight, according to Rosanne.
The best part?
“I’ve kept it off,” she boasts.
There’s a good reason for that.
“There’s no magic bullet. You need to follow the advice in the FLFS plan AND take the supplements,” she says.
I concur completely. One thing that frustrates me about this industry is the way so many companies make false promises. Nothing happens overnight, although that’s what the Internet hypesters and late-night infomercials would have you believe.
I make it a point to stress the entire package with our formula. Eating right, exercising and WLF1.
It takes some effort. But if you work at it, you, like Rosanne, will be well on your way to a new you.
I also do my best to share products, programs and other resources from trusted experts that offer practical solutions for healthy weight-loss strategy. These are the tools that I personally use and recommend to family and friends.
I’m so glad Rosanne got the message.
Here's to your good health!
