Somehow, the image above lurks just beyond the consciousness of many women. We are not her, but we are afraid of being her. Maybe she’s inside us just DYING to pop out.
She’s not. I swear. I am a woman in the middle of her life and have never had a better body. I actually am much better looking in my 50s than in my 20s, when I was a model. 6’2″ and coming in at 130. Then I ballooned to over 200. Then I came back down to 160. Then, my weight shot to….well, you get the idea.
I got a real career (modeling = free money) and started learning some facts about health. My guru (everybody needs one, baby!) is Dr. Mark Hyman http://www.drhyman.com. He told me that eating certain ingredients had an impact on your health in the next minutes, hours, days, and years. He told me that eating the right foods literally gave your body instructions to activate DNA that burns fat faster. Keep eating those ingredients and your DNA will continue to receive the signals, ultimately changing over to the new, faster fat-burning system. You literally change your body’s structure, your DNA.
I started drinking green smoothies and darned if it didn’t work. A month into writing and testing the cookbook, my pimples cleared and that last annoying ring of waist fat fell away. Sure I was working hard but I felt balanced, calm and <gasp!> HAPPY. That’s the real payoff: the way you feel about you.
