“I thoroughly enjoy this way of life”

Drinking tea helps Janelle with her fasting

Drinking tea helps Janelle with her fasting

A friend of Janelle recommended the Diet Doctor site to her as a way to lose weight, so she decided to try it. And apparently, she’s been pretty successful:

I am 64 years old. I have depression issues. I am clearly addicted to bad foods and sugar.

A dear friend told me about your site, as she had tremendous success with it, she encouraged me to try it. I enjoy your recipes, enjoy fasting and making this way of eating my own.

I started off at 211 lbs (96 kg). My biggest challenge is emotional eating. Another challenge is figuring out how to eat when I work nights, but I’ve done that, with much experimenting. I have to think of progress made whenever I’m tempted to comfort or emotional eat.

I wish I’d known this while raising my children, as they are adults now. I’m now in the 180s (82 kg). I thoroughly enjoy this way of life.


We asked Janelle about what she eats and how she fasts in a regular day, and this is what she answered:

Fasting is done weekly, starting the day off at 05.00 am with a couple of hot cups of tea. Between noon and 2 pm, I’ll eat something from your delicious recipes and drink more water or tea.


Way to go Janelle – and the best of luck with your continued journey.
