Success Story: Brain Warrior Angie 

I love hearing from Brain Warriors who have turned their life around and won the battle for their health. One of the most inspiring people I’ve worked with is a woman named Angie. When I first met her, she weighed 225 pounds and had been suffering from:

  • Migraine headaches
  • Rosacea
  • Dry skin
  • Dizziness
  • Stomach problems
  • Brain fog
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Anxiety and depression that ruled my life

I worked with her for a little over one year and in that time she lost over 100 pounds, but even more important, she completely transformed her health, moods, and energy. Here is the list of positive results Angie raved about after her transformation:

  • Present for my family
  • No digestive issues or cysts
  • Empowered
  • Highest confidence ever
  • Clear mind – no migraines
  • Control over moods
  • Able to forgive more easily
  • Dramatic improvement in focus
  • I am stronger than my anxiety and depression!
  • Even though I don’t know how to cook I’m able to do it!

Here’s how she did it (in her own words):

“My story starts when I was very young. I mostly ate TV dinners, except when my very Italian grandmother loved me with food. By age 8 I felt “fat” and was sent to Jenny Craig (at age 8!) My mom was very concerned about my appearance. I would buy mass amounts of garbage food and hide by myself, binging on it. The pain and shame were unbearable.

I tried every diet, pill, and quick fix I researched— only to fail again and again. I bought into the low-fat diet crap, which led me to being 225 pounds at five feet tall.

It all changed in May 2014 when a co-worker recommended your program and mentioned Tana’s name after visiting Amen Clinics. I thought to myself that it was just another program I would fail but got the program anyway. When I started reading I felt hope, real hope! I read it from cover to cover within a few days. Imagine: my anxiety and depression could be a result of my poor diet? I had tried gluten-free programs before, but never controlled my cravings.

This program was so different! You promised a change in two weeks.  Boy were you right!  I lost 11 pounds in the first two weeks. I’ve lost 103 pounds total. I weigh 122 pounds! I went from a size 18/20 to a size 3/4. I live and love to eat healthy and exercise! I never miss junk food and I can find something healthy to eat anywhere I go, or I pack a bag of food. I’ve learned so much!

My confidence is so high, and people notice. I receive so many compliments on my appearance. I no longer avoid social activities or feel like people are ridiculing me.  Your program inspired me to take control of my own health and now I have the tools to do it! I took what I learned and applied it to daily life and now I am inspiring others to lose weight too. If I can do this program, anyone can!”

I want to hear your story. Please share your story to help other Brain Warriors here.
