Within the first 2 weeks my blood pressure dropped significantly, my knees did not ache anymore, my hands were not swollen anymore and my self esteem was thru the roof. I had lost hope of dropping any weight as I was getting older. It seemed impossible, until I did this program. The weight loss was quick but not huge. I went from about 164 down to 155 in 6 weeks. I am still happy with that. This is a life long journey for me, the book taught me so much on how to properly nourish my body for maximum benefits… let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. I am grateful for the wealth of knowledge that has been given to me.
