I am 69 years old October 2017, I was overweight and in the obese category for my 5’5” height and bone structure. My health is generally good, but I was struggling to keep my weight down and began suffering pain and discomfort in my hips, knees and legs whilst getting up from a sitting position, needing to use my arms to get me to a standing position and then was very slow to get walking because I was in a lot of discomfort. Going up and down steps and competing in dog sports was a challenge. My energy was low, sleep was poor and I needed to do something about my weight. I began to worry about my weight and went to see a physician who recommended drugs for pain and weight loss. I declined and decided to change my diet.
Last year in 2017, my friend who competes in dog sports told me she lost 30lbs on the Almased Diet. I thought how wonderful and decided to give it a try! I began drinking the Almased shakes in January 2018. After the three days passed, I never looked back. I continued on the Almased and went from 189 lbs to 135 lbs, losing 54 pounds in just six months! I am down 5 sizes from a 16/18 to a 8/10!
On the Almased Program, I don’t feel hungry in between meals, as long as I drink enough water; my energy is great and I sleep more deeply and consistently. I no longer suffer from aching hips, knees and legs and am able to get up from a sitting position normally. I can walk up and down steps with no discomfort and my body feels so much lighter and free of pain. I’ve tried numerous diet plans and shakes, but none worked like Almased.
I have recommended Almased to so many friends who are now using Almased. The program is so simple and a very convenient way to lose a lot of weight. I travel for work and found Almased so easy to fit into my travel schedule. It doesn’t involve counting points or knowing the number of calories per food item. Just drink the shake!
