Linda’s Fast-5 Before-and-After

I contacted you, [Dr. Herring], one year ago and asked if Fast-5 was suitable for folks who needed to lose A LOT of weight.  You replied that the maximum weight loss you knew of was a man who lost 90 pounds.

Well, I want to tell you that I have lost 140 pounds in 12 months.  I’m still on Fast-5, with only 18 pounds to go before reaching my goal of 140 pounds.  I will lose half of my original body weight — and I say that with certainty.  I will keep it off because I will remain on the lifestyle of one meal/day for the rest of my life.  I do not wish to go back to living with pain and extreme fatigue. I don’t have any good before and after pics, not being into photography.  But I’m looking very good for a 68-year-old woman.  Fast-5 works for seniors, too. Of course, people constantly ask me how I did it — some don’t even recognize me.  I dutifully tell them, and I see their eyes glaze over.  I belong to a group (Lose Over 100 Pounds) on LiveStrong.Com; and when I told the group about my loss, all of them responded with something like, “Okay, good for you, but I would NEVER do that.  I need to fuel my body frequently to keep the metabolism firing, etc.”  My doctor frowns on it as well, but she cannot argue with my blood analysis and lung/liver functions which are greatly improved. BTW, I did absolutely no exercise.  I did watch calories on my one meal, but had no forbidden foods and ate a hearty lunch every day, from soup to dessert.
