Name: S. Jankowski
Improvement: 20+ lbs Weight Loss
Time: 3 months
Program: 2016 Total Transformation Challenge—Summer Edition
What was your biggest challenge / obstacle(s)?
My biggest obstacles were portion control and removing sugar from my diet. Also limiting meats, bread, and fried foods.
What motivated you to stay on the course?
After the weight started to drop I began having more energy, looking better and feeling better. Seeing these changes makes you want to stay on target.
Did your diet change? If so, How? Please be detailed!
My diet changed 100%. Breakfast consists of shredded wheat (no sugar) with low-fat milk and blueberries or a yogurt with 1 banana and Chia seeds and a tall glass of water with herbal vitamins. Lunch consists of fresh salad with low-fat dressing or turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread w/ lettuce and tomato and no dressing, fresh fruit- and a tall glass of water. Dinner, at an early time, consists of portion control - no red meats only chicken or turkey grilled not fried, steamed vegetables, salmon or low sodium tuna salad no mayo and a tall glass of water. Afterwards, I will walk around my neighborhood for 3 or 4 miles. Before bed I will have a hot cup of Chinese herbal tea consisting of Reishi (Lingzhi) Mushroom, Moringa, ginseng, and Turmeric to cleanse and remove toxins…
