Silvana's Story -
Hi, my name is Silvana Hebert. I started my journey with the Pounds and Inches protocol on Aug 18th, 2010 and I have lost 33 lbs and almost as many inches.
I heard about the HCG protocol from a friend and I was immediately intrigued. I had noticed that it had become increasingly difficult to lose weight and increasingly easy to gain it. I spent the majority of my adult life as a fit and slender person 5'5” and between 125-130 lbs. I exercised regularly and watched what I ate.
As I approached my forties the scale had begun to creep up, five pounds at a time until I reached 150lbs. I tried all the popular diets out there and some worked but only for a short time.
Then I had children and maxed out at 205 lbs after giving birth to my second daughter. I was mortified every time I saw myself in the mirror. I rarely went out because I didn't want to be seen. I did eventually lose 50 lbs by simply white knuckling it and eating only every other day for about 3 months. But obviously no one could keep that up forever so I struggled with the last 30 lbs. I would lose twenty gain 25, lose 15 gain back 20, over and over again. I must have lost the same 20 lbs at least 6 times in two years.
The thing I noticed most of all and would often tell my husband is that it “felt” like my metabolism was broken. Something wasn't right and I knew it but had no proof. I just knew that there had been a drastic metabolic breakdown and the only way I would ever keep the weight off was to fix it but I had no idea how.
That's why when my girl friend told me that the HCG protocol resets your metabolism I jumped on it immediately. It was that promise that started me on this journey.
So here I am almost one year later feeling immeasurably better. Enjoying foods that I have always liked and maintaining in the 130's. Easily slipping into size six pants and looking for opportunities to go out, even in my bathing suit.
For the first time in years I don't feel the need to wear a cover up all the time. I will not lie or exaggerate and say that it has been easy because it hasn't. The losing is easy, yes, but for me this has also been about staying healthy and therefore, I have had to learn new eating habits, lose my old diet mentality and face some giants in order to maintain. I will tell you that it is simple, extremely simple. It's the simplest weight loss program I have ever done. It's virtually impossible not to succeed at this IF you follow protocol.
One wonderful surprise in addition to melting off so much unwanted fat was the addition of an invaluable support system found here at Protocol2Health. Anyone that has ever tried to lose weight knows how hard and demoralizing it can be. Here we have a genuine sense of family that loves, supports, and encourages each other daily. I could never have done it without these folks.
I remember thinking, sure it works for them but will it work for ME???
And my emphatic answer to that is YES and it will work for you too.
Go ahead set your body free!!
