When Phyllis signed up for the Further Food 7 day sugar detox and started taking 2 scoops of collagen protein a day, she couldn’t have known what would happen in the following 3 months. When she first signed up, she could barely walk 10 minutes… but now 3 months later walks 90 minutes a day to Leslie Sansone DVDs! She’s lost 30 pounds and has more energy than she’s ever known! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Further Food Collagen Peptides has helped Phyllis reduce cellulite, stop heartburn, ease diverticulitis symptoms, alleviate back pain, and her scars have even disappeared – all collagen protein benefits. Talk about a life-changing experience!
It officially started on January 2017, when I decided to participate in a 7-day sugar detox challenge with Further Food and began adding Further Food Collagen Peptides to my diet. What began as a whim has become a life-changing habit. To date, I’ve lost 30 pounds and 16 inches, which is one-third of the way to my personal goal of losing 75 pounds. Truth be told, this is easily the best I’ve felt in 40 years. Not only do I have so much more energy, but a lot of my aches and pains and other medical issues are gone. My skin is glowing, I am pain free, and my scars and cellulite have faded. I had no idea I would experience all these collagen protein benefits when I first started, but I’m loving it!
I am 63 years old, and have tried “a gazillion” weight-loss plans. Sure, I’ve lost a few pounds and gained them back, but this is the first time I have ever found something that works. And beyond the weight loss, I have seen a drastic improvement in my other health issues. I used to struggle with digestive problems, debilitating back pain, and red, scarred skin. Since beginning my weight loss program and taking collagen protein daily, I have seen a noticeable reduction in my medical problems – the benefits are remarkable. There are no more bouts of diverticulitis that would lead to me being hospitalized; no gas, bloating or digestive issues. I don’t even get heartburn anymore.
Gone also are my painful back problems caused by ruptured discs, sciatica and bulges. In fact, I’ve been able to eliminate injections or medications for my back entirely. I love to dance, and now I can do it again. I feel like a teenager!
And I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin! My skin feels softer, and my cellulite is remarkably less noticeable. In 2000, I had surgery that left me with scars and a lot of redness. Since beginning to use the collagen, the scars have faded and are not as noticeable. And even better-no more redness.
I am shocked and so thrilled! I never thought I’d experience the benefits of collagen protein this quickly – I’ve been taking it daily for the past 3 months. Further Food Collagen combined with my weight loss has made such drastic improvements in my skin and entire body.
How I Transformed My Body and Health
I won’t lie. There’s no magic fix for losing weight and regaining my health back. It has taken a lot of work for me to adapt to my new lifestyle. But most importantly, I have stuck with it this time. My success with Further Food Collagen has helped me become healthy, but I know I have to put the work in and be patient. The hardest part for me was starting, but after two weeks I was hooked on health and fitness. Here’s what’s worked for me:
- I cut out sugar, dairy, processed foods and alcohol.
- Most of my meals consist of vegetables, fruit, fish and beans, with very limited red meat.
- I faithfully use two scoops of Further Food Collagen every day in my coffee or tea. Also, 2 days a week, I do a liquid fast with only Further Food Collagen and bone broth. It makes me feel energized and focused.
- If I am craving an unhealthy food like chicken parmesan (which rarely happens these days), eating a small portion to satisfy the craving helps. If I don’t, I’ll eat everything in the house trying to satisfy it! (And since participating in the Further Food 7-day sugar detox challenge, I don’t crave sugar anymore.)
- Working out every day is making a difference. At first I could manage only 10 minutes, but now I’m up to at least 90 minutes a day. I love the Leslie Sansone Walking DVD’s! I use two of her DVDs: Leslie Sansone Walking of the Pounds and Leslie Sansone The Tone Every Zone Walk. Her inspirational videos have helped me to push myself and keep increasing my workout time. The exercise has definitely contributed to helping me lose inches and tone up!
- I will not give up on myself or my health like I have in the past because I feel too good.
- Fitness isn’t necessarily about the numbers on the scale. Muscle weighs more than fat and if I am not losing, I am probably toning up and will eventually see a drop in measurements.
I know that collagen protein is not a miracle powder unless you do the work of changing your lifestyle. But I honestly feel supplementing with collagen has been the secret to my weight loss and health benefits this time, when all my other previous attempts have failed. I tell anyone who will listen about collagen protein benefits, especially when I am asked what I have done to look so healthy and happy.
Along the way, my biggest motivation has been my daughter. I do not want her to be my caregiver. I have been in that role and I know it isn’t pretty. If I can get the weight off and get healthy and fit, the chances are greater that I will be vibrant and healthy for the rest of my natural life.
This is the affirmation I read every day: “It comes down to one simple thing: How bad do you want it?” This time, I really want it!
Stay tuned while we follow Phyllis’s journey as she moves towards her 75-pound weight loss goal!
