Kristi Dear - After
Enlarge Image

Kristi Dear, now fit and
slender at 125 pounds.

Kristi's Weight-Loss Plan

The Diet: Breakfast is whole-grain cereal with soy milk. At lunch, Kristi has turkey and low-fat cheese on whole wheat with carrot sticks. Dinner is salmon, whole-grain rice, and broccoli. She snacks on apples, bananas, green beans, and half an avocado.

The Workout: Sixty to 90 minutes of strength or interval training three times a week; 45 minutes of cardio (swimming, kickboxing, basketball) twice a week.

Biggest Temptation: Pepperoni pizza. "I fill up with salad first; then I'm satisfied with just two slices."

What She Couldn't Wait to Wear: Tank tops. "I always wore long sleeves in the summer to cover up my flab. Now I love to show off my shoulders and upper arms."

Great. I like her common sense approach. She did not deprve herself of good food, and took her time. A true lifestyle change, not just a diet. Excellent work :)
