A Look Inside The Drop 10 Diet
Ashley Sherry, 32, of Charlotte, North Carolina, lost 13 pounds with the Drop 10 Diet. "The Drop 10 fitness cards were like my own personal trainer," she says.
MOTIVATION: When Sherry moved to a new town in 2009, she tried a lot of the local restaurants during the next year--and put on 15 pounds in the process. Planning a trip to Hawaii in 2011 spurred her to get beach-ready.
PAYOFF: Sherry did Drop 10 toners and upped her cardio to match our plan. The combo delivered sexy curves in time for her to rock a bikini on vacation—and her guy proposed before the trip! She can't wait to wow him in a figure-hugging wedding gown next month.
Hannah Levbarg, 38, of Cerrillos, New Mexico, lost 18 pounds and four inches off her waist on the Drop 10 Diet. "The Drop 10 recipes helped me lose while eating foods I love," she says.
MOTIVATION: After being treated for an ovarian tumor two years ago, Levbarg decided to make wellness a priority, but she struggled to balance a healthful diet with her passion for gourmet cooking (and eating).
PAYOFF: The Drop 10 dishes satisfied this foodie and kept her portions in check. Levbarg learned that some of her favorite foods, such as nuts and grains, have slimming superpowers. She plans to peel off 20 pounds more. "It's a way of life for me now," she says.
