Real Results with Matthew Lewis

I started Physician’s Plan because at 318 pounds and 50 years old, my health was starting to fail. My bones and joints ached all the time, particularly after a 12-hour nursing shift. I had to take the elevator because my knees couldn’t take the stairs carrying all that extra weight and I would become winded and sweaty from very little exertion. I was always bloated because my diet consisted of a lot of salty, fatty foods and I was eating at least three times the calories I should have been. I didn’t like the way that I looked in or out of clothes and it made me feel self-conscious.

I overcame those sugar cravings by drinking a gallon of water a day to make sure I wasn’t thirsty.

Busy Mom, Vegan and 40+ Journey of Weight Loss

The day I turned 40, I was the heaviest I had been in my life (other than pregnancy, and we all know that number doesn’t count).  The scales read an alarming 155 pounds. I knew it was time to do something, but I didn’t know where to start. Being a vegan made things a little harder. Squeezing uncomfortably into my size 8 pants (knowing it was time to move up to the 10’s) meant it was time to get back down to a healthy weight.
