I'm Angela Hanley DC, and since starting the Activate Metabolics back in October, I've lost 36.8 lb, and I've shrunk by 34.9 inches. My Body Fat percentage is within a healthy range for my age - for the first time probably since my second pregnancy, 16 years ago.
At 48 years old, peri-menopause was kicking my tail. Even with a reasonable (I thought) diet, and with regular activity (gym, hiking, yoga), I was not only overweight, but gaining weight steadily, and I had no explanation for it.
I was frustrated, stressed, suffered from a very sensitive stomach... and I hated pictures. Conveniently I am tall, so it's easy to shuffle myself into the back and hide behind others. I wore long sleeves and long pants - always - to cover my body.
Now I feel so much more comfortable in my clothes, and I am having fun finding "new" finds in the back of the closet! Shopping, being 3 sizes smaller, is also WAY more fun!!
The stomach issues STOPPED AS SOON AS I STARTED EATING THIS WAY!!!! Born with a heart murmur, it is especially significant to me that I have decreased my risk of heart disease, as well as my risk for cancer, stroke and diabetes. The DNA testing shed light as to what I should be eating in order to lose weight and keep it off (spoiler alert: lots of grassfed butter in my future!).
