A 46 year old Brisbane woman spent a body and soul-affirming three months experience of dietary denial on Mrs Snook’s gut-cleanse diet in 2014. Teresa lost 13 kilos and nearly halved her cholesterol levels.
Mrs Snook’s Diet: Teresa (Case Study, 2014)
The June and July period in 2014 was an extremely stressful time for me at work. I felt the weight of the world bearing down on me.
I was eating on the run without much thought about what I was eating, not to mention long hours spent at my desk. During this time, I quickly gained six kilos which I could ill afford to do because I was already overweight. Needless to say, I became very down about it.
After following Dorothea Snook’s diet and health treatments, I feel fantastic and years younger. My new energy levels remind me of the energy I had as a child and young person.
I feel great and lost just over thirteen kilos and my cholesterol levels dropped from 7.2 to 5.4, which I was thrilled about. My cholesterol levels have always ranged between 6 and 7.2, except for the time I did a famous diet six years ago and it shot up to twelve!
In a medical check-up I underwent towards the completion of Mrs Snook’s diet, one result that surprised me was my iron levels. I thought it would be low because I haven’t eaten any red meat, but the levels were high. It just goes to show Dorothea Snook’s food charts do provide for all aspects of good health – it must have been all that spinach tea I’ve been drinking! I love my yoga and spinach tea!
My doctor also said my Vitamin D level was high and asked if I had been taking supplements, which I had not. I do get a solid fifteen minutes of sunshine every morning when walking to the bus stop and waiting for the bus. I also eat my lunch in the park when possible to soak up some sun and spend time I the sun gardening on a regular basis. My blood pressure measured 94/62.
Other health benefits I notice include:
- I no longer have dull aches in my joints
- My face is not bloated
- My skin is self-moisturising
- I have noticeably lost weight and slimmed down
- I have heaps of energy
- I sleep peacefully at night and wake up completely refreshed every morning and am raring to go
- My posture has improved
- People keep telling me I look years younger and am glowing!
