[mks_dropcap style=”square” size=”52″ bg_color=”#F4B700″ txt_color=”#ffffff”]W[/mks_dropcap]ell, here we go. I’m Zoe and was diagnosed as Type 1 diabetic back on Sept 2013. For the last 3 years I have tried just about every diet you can think off. All with little or no success, and all quickly leading to the weight creeping slowly back on. When I found out I was diabetic, I decided I really had to grab this “get healthy” malarky by the horns and lose weight, and get fit for the sake of my children (corny but true!)
When I read about the Almased trial I was intrigued and excited; a meal replacement that has been scientifically proven to stimulate your metabolism, and encourage your body to burn more fat. I must admit I was a little sceptical about the fact it claims to keep you feeling full for 4 hours.
I excitedly tracked “Andy” the delivery driver who brought my package, via the confirmation email and hurriedly removed the packaging like a child on christmas morning. Then the reality began to dawn that this was it, this was my chance to take a step forward and shout to my inner Zoe “I’m coming to get you!”
Today Monday 31/03 was my first day, and Almased recommends 3 drinks only for the first 3 days (accompanied by a homemade vegetable broth, for which the recipe is provided) this prepares your body for when your metabolism readjusts itself. I must admit I was a little nervous, as the Queen of snackers I was apprehensive that my resolve would hold.
