My name is Tammy and I’m 44. For those 44 years, I have been overweight (yes, even as a baby I was “lovingly chunky”). I wasn’t morbidly obese, but I was obese on the BMI scales. I’m 5’2″ and my body fat is almost off the charts, though you couldn’t tell by looking at me. Most people said they couldn’t tell, but clothes do hide things well. Heart disease and high cholesterol run in my family and I needed to do something soon if I was going to live my life without heart disease!I tried dieting on and off, had the personal trainers and joined (and quit) multiple gyms. Some things would work and I’d lose 10-15 pounds, but of course eventually it would come back. At one point I was working out for over an hour 5 days a week, eating correctly (no junk foods) and I wasn’t losing an ounce! Needless to say, I was disgusted.I had read an article about SlimGENEration and thought “that is what I need to do!” See what exactly my body type needs as far as food and exercise. The price was a bit high for me, but I thought it was going to be worth it in the long run if I could figure out what I needed to do. I wanted to be healthy rather than skinny and what I was doing wasn’t working.
So I went for it, knowing that whatever the results were, I had to be willing to do it. It wasn’t going to be a one size fits all deal; this was going to be especially for me because it was my DNA.So I got the results and was pleasantly surprised that my current eating habits were pretty much in line with what my body needed. I just needed to make a few tweaks, the most drastic being protein at breakfast. I am not a protein gal and LOVE my carbs. My biggest surprise came with what my body needed as far as activity. My body only needs 3 days of 30-45 minutes of high intensity, which is 70-85% of my Max heart rate. Any more than that and my body stores fat! That means that all those times that I was working my butt off in the gym for an hour or more I was helping my body store the fat rather than burn it!!! How is that for epiphany? I was never a big fan of exercise so I was ecstatic to find out that if I just worked out 3 days a week for 30 minutes, my body was going to be happy and I was going to lose the weight that I needed to. Since starting my journey with Slimgeneration I have lost almost 20 pounds of pure fat. I’m elated, however I still have my goal of weighing 130 (I started at 156), so I have 6 more pounds to lose. I am so thankful for the SlimGENEration staff; I would not be able to stay as motivated without their support! The entire team has been awesome. If you are thinking about doing this DNA testing and your wondering “is this a gimmick?” or “yeah right, how much more will I have to fork out?” trust me. Go talk to the Slim team and do a free consult. You will not be disappointed, but fair warning – you better be ready for whatever your DNA says it needs.
