Rosa lost 12 kg even with hypothyroidism and after menopause
Weight loss is always a journey complicated, and when you have any metabolic problems like hypothyroidism or when you are feeling the effects of postmenopause, it seems like an impossible task. So much that many people decide or try! Luckily, this was not the case with Rosa Almeida, a successful case and ambassador for the Diet and Health, also known as Nina. She faced health problems, but still managed to reach her goal and lose 12 pounds.
A race with obstacles
Rosa has always suffered from various health problems. From a very young age, she had to use medicines to treat her allergies, and later hypothyroidism was diagnosed, along with hypoglycemia, which forced her to eat every 3 hours. Even so, she felt good about her 76 kilos. Until one day, she suffered a severe collapse in the spine, which even prevented her from traveling with her family, and the doctor's recommendation was one: to lose weight. "But the record that I needed to lose weight only fell when I did an ultrasound and realized that I had difficulty turning on the stretcher when the nurse asked," he says. Taking morphine and with very strong pains, Rosa started to use the computer and discovered the program Diet and Health.
One step at a time
After she paid the first ticket, Rosa decided to take it easy. And so she followed, losing a little every week. "The most that I eliminated per week was 800 grams or a kilo," he recalls. Thus, in about six months, Rosa managed to reach the 64 kilos, its goal. Her main teaching was to reduce portions of what she ate, but continued feeding every three hours because of hypoglycaemia. Despite all these limitations, she never considered hypothyroidism or postmenopausal as limitations. "The doctor always told me that I would only gain weight if I ate too much, and I always repeated it to my 'goddaughters' in the Diet and Health who thought that these problems would bring them weight gain even without eating anything," teaches Rosa. > Consolidated change
Rosa also managed to overcome her metabolic problems and maintain her weight, mainly by continuing to apply the teachings of dietary reeducation and using her Diary of Points in the center of Diet and Health. "You do a reeducation to learn how to make exchanges healthy and it is gradually that your mind is conditioning, it takes a while, "he teaches. So much so that she does not usually follow menus, but instead seeks to have healthy foods in her home to serve as the basis for her meal dishes and also to avoid her low blood glucose levels. "Before, when I had a hypoglycemic crisis, I would eat any item that would help me recover glucose. Today I have a healthy emergency snack, which helps me in those situations, too." And even when she goes to family parties or on weekends with her family, she does not look ugly because of her diet, consuming smaller amounts of candy, to continue her diet, without depriving herself of the fun. "The food reeducation did not change my normal diet! I just reduced the amounts and eliminated the bad, fat and fried foods," he says. So, her health thanks, and the weight too!
