I’m Veronica. And I tried it all.
Atkins, Southbeach, Nutrisystem, Weight watchers, Jenny Craig.
And I even listened to that silly baseball guy who talked about the shakes on TV for all those years.
And yet, since I had my second daughter at 28, I haven’t been able to lose any weight…
Well, maybe a few pounds for a little while but then it all comes roaring back when I stop whatever gimmick I’m on that month.
You should’ve seen me in my college days. I was tall, slim and had been blessed by the good lord with an hourglass figure that always turned heads.
But after Andrea was born… I couldn’t get back down to my normal 130. I’m 5 foot 7, and that was always a great weight on me.
Yet I’ve spent the better part of 20 years pushing 220 pounds.
Then one sleepless night, I stumbled on a health segment on MSNBC, featuring Chrissie Mitchell, fitness trainer to the celebrities.
Chrissie shared so much information in the short time she was on.
She started by exposing the biggest nutrition lies the big fitness and weight loss players preach.
Just to push sales of their fad diets to make millions of dollars.
“To lose weight successfully, you shouldn’t eat less. Nor should you cut out carbs. Nor should you exercise until you drop,” she sternly quipped.
She then shared a multi-year study that demonstrated consistent and aggressive cardio routines have little effect on weight loss. And that doing lots of endless cardio is actually bad for your health.
At that moment, it dawned on me that how all of the things I thought I was doing right – starving myself, running until I ached, eliminating carbs, yadda, yadda, yadda— they were actually holding me back rather than helping!
Can you believe that?
All that time and effort, not to mention thousands of dollars down the drain because I was fed lies.
Chrissie continued to explain how our bodies work. With only some minor changes, no matter your age, shape or size, you can kick your body into fat burning mode for much longer than normal.
Chrissie then shared a list of carbs that you should pair and eat together, which will immediately trigger your hormones to melt away fat and make you feel more energetic.
She also provided a list of “healthy” foods to avoid. These so called “healthy” foods actually damage your health and make you pack on more unsightly fat.
Lastly, Chrissie spoke about a couple of simple steps to take each day that will shift your eating cycles and push your metabolism into high gear, getting your body to burn fat faster.
The next morning, I headed to the nearest Whole Foods and picked up every food listed on my notes.
I remembered being skeptical – how ‘pairing’ a bunch of carbs and following a few simple steps could help me lose weight when nothing had worked before.
But I owe it to myself to give it a shot. I had nothing to lose.
I immediately began eating the way Chrissie had recommended and followed the other few simple steps she mentioned.
You won’t believe what happened next!
In a single week, I lost 9 pounds and could really see the difference right away. My hips seemed slimmer and my jeans started to loosen up.
So I kept following Chrissie’s advice and I actually lost 67 pounds total in the next 5 months!
I’m not down to 130, but at my age and for my height, I think 145 is pretty darn good.
I look amazing in a sun dress and I feel 20 years younger… and to tell a bit of a secret… Tom can’t keep his hands off me!
Since then, I have found out that Chrissie has formed a weight loss program on the basis of her research, which is backed by science.
Chrissie has now made it her mission in life to share this healthy weight loss program with women all across the world.
If you’re a woman who has struggled to lose weight, you owe it to yourself to watch Chrissie’s presentation which you can find right here.

I really hope it has even a fraction of the impact on your life that it has had on mine because the information you’re about to learn has forever changed my life.
