Deb was in our 2016 clinical trial and has lost almost 50 pounds – and kept them off now for almost 2 years. She was interviewed by Women Fitness (an online fitness magazine) and her story was published on February 13, 2018.
Please read this amazing and inspirational story:
“According to Veronique Cardon, founder of The CogniDiet® programs, Deb Stewart is a beautiful person, inside and out — a gentle soul. She came into TheCogniDiet®’s clinical trial in 2016 as a pre-diabetic, frustrated at not being able to lose weight at 50. She was constantly tired and somewhat depressed.
Deb was a true vegetarian with serious carbohydrate and sugar addictions. She was a pizza, rice and pasta lover, experiencing day long cravings triggered by this highly starchy regimen. Although she was a vegetarian, vegetables were absent from her menu. Cooking wasn’t her thing, either.
But with the right help, Deb was able to transform her lifestyle, even at 50 years of age.
When did you realize that you needed to lose weight?
I have always known I needed to lose weight. I’ve had a weight problem all of my life. I have been on many diets throughout my life. I had not been at a healthy weight for many years, and even when I was at a healthy weight, it never lasted for long. I always, and very quickly gained the weight back. I had gotten to my highest weight right before starting the CogniDiet back in September 2016.
How has your weight loss journey been? What were the milestones that you had to overcome?
My weight loss journey has been easy. I never thought I would ever say that about losing weight. I never felt like I was on a diet. I went into this journey with high cholesterol (for years). I was also pre-diabetic. I felt horrible, I had brain fog all of the time, was tired all of the time and was just not happy. I was out of control in my eating and hungry all of the time. I was desperate.
When I started this diet I told myself that I would do whatever was asked of me, whether I agreed with it or not. When Veronique told me it was okay to eat eggs, and fat, I did it, even though I was hesitant. I never thought I could eat these things because of my high cholesterol.
Through this journey, I learned how to understand my appetite. I now take 20 minutes to eat my meals instead of inhaling them in 5 minutes, and because of this I eat less and am satisfied with less. I learned what food was doing to my body. I now understand carbohydrates. I cannot believe with all the diets I’ve been on, that no one has ever taught me about carbohydrates before! I learned about the importance of protein in my diet, as well as vegetables.
Before Cognidiet I was a vegetarian who did not eat vegetables! Now I understand why I was hungry all of the time and why I craved sugar like a drug! Having all this information has kept me on this journey. CogniDiet has taught me to stop in my tracks before I put anything in my mouth.
I only had one milestone to overcome and that was getting off of sugar. I was a sugarholic. After the first meeting at CogniDiet I went cold turkey. It took several days to get over the cravings, but that was it. I no longer feel the need to have sugar. I can do without it now….”
