total soy became my total way
on March 3, 2012
My wife mentioned wanting to start a powdered drink diet. Being the good husband I decided to look at what they had at sams and experiment while she keeps failing at each diet attempt she tries. I picked up total soy (vanilla) and decide to try it. Now I didn't need to lose weight but it wouldn't hurt if I lost a few lbs. The very first day I used it for breakfast, it didn't taste bad but it didn't fight my hunger either. I also took it for lunch. I was hungry all day and very thirsty. I am finding you need to drink a lot of water, it seems to dry out my mouth.
Unlike my wife's diets, she doesn't eat much all day, not so with total soy. Although for me I was very hungry, I pushed through my day knowing that I can eat a normal dinner, and it tasted so good. I lost 2 pounds that first day and 2 pounds every day for 3 days. My hunger pains weren't as bad as a couple days went by, and when i did eat, i wasn't eating as much. I am now only using total soy for breakfast, I have a light lunch and a normal dinner. For some people it might fight their hunger, for me it doesn't but I can go with out eating anything knowing that dinner will be good.
I started at 230lbs 6 foot tall, I am now 220lbs, still the same height, I lost 10 lbs in exactly one week. But that isn't all, I used to never stop working, or playing. i am 43yrs old and worn out, well until. With total soy I have lots of energy, which i need with a brand new baby, and I feel like I did 15 years ago. I am getting more work done, I am not wore out after work and I am not as crabby as I have been, I can focus better. It has improved my life, I suggest taking it just to feel young again.
