(I’m giddy over reaching this goal—can’t imagine how cray cray I’m going to be when we reach Minus 210 or Minus 230 Pound Pair!!!)
So I had lost 50 pounds over many years (and kept it off—that is important!).
But over the past three years, we have lost 150 of the 200 pounds together. (His weight loss total is 105 pounds; mine is 97 pounds!)
And while Intermittent Fasting has been an important piece of our weight loss puzzle, it is one of three biggies….
2) Plant-based supplementation (i.e getting a healthy gut, reducing inflammation, balancing blood sugar, and more!)
3) Habits (food habits, exercise, and much more—all the little things!)
So to give the full picture, I have two videos for you:
1) A short version
2) A long version
And a full outline for both! So watch one or both of the videos (scroll all the way down!) and email me or message me with questions. I would love to help you create your perfect “weight loss storm”!

c. Donna—at least 3 fibrous/watery foods from this list: Ceasar salad, crispy air fried chicken salad, grilled chicken salad, green beans, green beans/potatoes, watermelon, pork and beans, chili beans, baked potato, apple with peeling, banana, corn, sprouted toast, sprouted sandwich, sprouted pb toast

e. Most health is based on blood sugar balancing, gut health, and inflammation reducing—Plexus addresses all of these!
