When you wish upon a star, your dreams may come true. Right now I feel like I’m living in a dream. I stepped on the scale today and I’m down 27.2 pounds in 33 days. Plus, I had my blood drawn yesterday at my doctor’s to run a few numbers and my cholesterol is down to 117. What an amazing number to see. A healthy number. All my hard work and clean eating is really paying off. I wish I would have listened to my friend a year ago when I first heard about Omnitrition and their Omni-Drops.
I wanted to share a portion of the book, Pounds and Inches from Dr. Simeons. At the very beginning of his book he talked about Obesity as a disorder and says this:
As a basis for our discussion we postulate that obesity in all its many forms is due to an abnormal functioning of some part of the body and that every ounce of abnormally accumulated fat is always the result of the same disorder of certain regulatory mechanisms. Persons suffering from this particular disorder will get fat regardless of whether they eat excessively, normally or less than normal. A person who is free of the disorder will never get fat, even if he frequently overeats.
Those in whom the disorder is severe will accumulate fat very rapidly, those in whom it is moderate will gradually increase in weight and those in whom it is mild may be able to keep their excess weight stationary for long periods. In all these cases a loss of weight brought about by dieting, treatments with thyroid, appetite-reducing drugs, laxatives, violent exercise, massage, baths, etc., is only temporary and will be rapidly regained as soon as the reducing regimen is relaxed. The reason is simply that none of these measures corrects the basic disorder.
I am this person that Dr. Simeon describes in his book. I have been moving towards an eating clean lifestyle for the past three years but didn’t have much success in the weight loss category. Although I was feeling better and knew I was feeding my body the nutrients that it needed to remain healthy, the weight was still an issue. Thanks to his research and trials with his patients
in Italy, I feel he has unlocked the secret to losing weight – for me. I have been on almost every diet out there and have never had much success. There is an Omni support group on facebook for customers of the products. Someone was mentioning the other day that they were disappointed that they had only lost 3 pounds in two days. My response to her was that we put way too much emphasis on what the number of the scale is. We need to know that by eating a good diet full of whole foods, we are feeding our body with vitamins and minerals. Imagine if we just ate what we wanted and didn’t care if it was processed and full of ingredients we couldn’t even pronounce. I remember when I was following the Weight Watchers plan and celebrated a 1 pound loss each week. So what this one person on Omni-Drops lost in two days and was disappointed in, I would be celebrating at the three week mark on Weight Watchers.
If anyone would like information on Omnitrition and the Omni-Drops, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here on my blog (which I love receiving by the way).
