Five pounds away from recommended weight!Doris Daugherity

I have lost 27 pounds since the first of the year. I told Michael Lennox, a personal trainer at Apex Centre, that I have tried to lose weight all my life and have not been successful. I wanted his help and guidance. Michael said I needed to change my diet in order to see results. He recommended I drink a protein powder shake and eat two eggs for breakfast and eat meat & vegetables for both lunch and dinner. No snacks allowed.

I researched fasting and Keto and have added both to my plan. I started drinking apple cider vinegar and lemon juice as another way to lose weight. I am now five pounds away from my recommended weight. My doctor will take me off my medications if I maintain my weight loss.

I now spend 3-5 days each week at the Apex Centre. I use the bicycle or elliptical for 20 minutes and work out on the weight machines for 10 minutes. The bone spur on my foot no longer hurts since I lost the weight.

We at the Apex Centre hope Doris continues to reach her health and fitness goals!
