This is the loud, crisp sound I heard behind my back as I was crossing the street. One second later, people behind me were bursting into laughter. And it didn’t take me long to realize that they were all laughing at me…
I had a massive hole at the back of my pants, the flesh of my right leg was exposed, and every stranger in the street could see my thigh fat…
I had gained so much weight over the past 6 years that the fabric of my pants ripped under the pressure of my legs.
I walked as fast as I could to the car with my husband, who seemed almost as embarrassed as me. Every single step with my thigh fat exposed to everyone felt like public humiliation. I’d never felt so embarrassed in my life. I still remember the smirking faces of the people passing nearby…
I knew I had to do something about my weight. In fact, I’d been desperately trying to lose the excess 37 pounds that I gained after the birth of my son Thomas. But I never managed to get rid of that stubborn belly, waist, and leg fat, despite trying literally EVERYTHING.
Hi, my name is Laura Bennet, and in today’s article, I’m going to share with you how this humiliating public incident led me to discover a solution to finally dissolve all the excess fat on my belly, thighs, and waist after 6 years of never-ending diet roller coaster.
It helped me regain a lean, tight body, very close to the one I had “at my peak” before the birth of my son Thomas over half a decade ago. It enabled me to regain confidence and finally feel comfortable in my skin again, without ever feeling self-conscious in public.
Today, I want to share with you this unexpected discovery that allowed me to shed 36 pounds without creating irresistible cravings or working out like crazy. I’m not a woman who can naturally lose weight easily. My mother and her mother were both overweight their whole lives.
So if this simple solution worked for me, maybe it can help other women get their ideal body as well.
But first, let me ask you this:
Have you ever wondered why some lucky women can eat whatever they want and get away with it?
I think about this all the time… and it never ceases to frustrate me. It just feels SO unfair to me that some women can eat Krispy Kreme doughnuts, BBQ chicken wings, or large crusty pizzas without gaining a single gram!
In fact, last year, I was invited to a lunch party at the country house of my husband’s colleague and long-time friend Dan. He has a nice ranch where everybody can just relax, have some fun, and enjoy good food, fresh beer, and music.
And this time, Dan really outdid himself by organizing a MASSIVE buffet: mountains of slow-braised pork ribs, sausage rolls, butterfly cakes, Texas-style barbecued chicken, handmade hamburgers, bagels and doughnuts, pizzas and fries for children (and adults like me…), and dozens of fresh, finger-licking pastries. The lifetime food lover inside me was screaming for help. I already knew I would never be able to resist…
And then, there is Karen, Dan’s wife, a very attractive 47-year-old woman. Not “model-like” attractive. But she had that kind of killer, hourglass-shaped body with tight skin that drives all men crazy. At 47, she basically had the body of a 22-year-old cheerleader, with only a few fine lines on her face. In fact, I tried to avoid taking pictures with her because she made me look like the “ugly fat friend” everyone feels sorry for…
But it’s not even the craziest part… You might think that with a body like that, she must have a super strict diet coupled with 4–5 intense weekly cardio sessions. Well, think twice!
I don’t even know how this is possible… but Karen just happens to be “one of these women” who literally eats like two people, devouring greasy BBQ wings, large crusty pizzas, and Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough ice creams every week – without taking a single gram of fat. As if calories simply had no effect on her!
For me, on the other hand, it was a completely different story… Over the past 6 years, I literally tried everything under the sun to get rid of my belly, waist, and thigh fat, making me incredibly self-conscious about my body. I’ve tried keto, Weight Watchers, Atkins, low-carb, Dukan, vegan, paleo – you name it… I even bought a $1.5k Peloton bike in an attempt to burn my stubborn fat faster…
But every time I tried a new diet, it was always the same story.
I would read about a new popular way of losing weight online…
Try it for a few months while making sure to follow all the instructions to the letter…
Lose a few pounds in the first weeks… and then REGAIN all the weight I lost in a heartbeat by succumbing to uncontrollable food cravings.
So when I saw Karen devouring crusty Margaritas as if she was immune to calories, I just wished I could switch bodies with her. I was tired of seeing and touching my own pockets of fat every day in the mirror, but NOTHING was working to get rid of this excess fat.
While everybody was laughing, drinking, and enjoying their meal at the party, I felt really bad in my own skin and self-conscious about my weight.
Little did I know what was coming for me the next day…
How my inability to lose weight led me to live one of the most embarrassing moments in my life
The next day, I went shopping with my husband. We wanted to take advantage of the Holiday season to find some good quality clothes at attractive discounts. It was a very bright, sunny day, so the mall was crawling with people.
I love shopping, and I rarely do it with my husband because he quickly gets bored. So this day was an occasion for me to feel better and happier after the brief episode of weight-related depression I had last night at the ranch.
Unfortunately for me, this day, which was supposed to be relaxing, didn’t go exactly as planned…
As I was crossing the street to look at the display window of a shoe store that caught my eye, I heard a loud, crisp sound right behind my back:
One second later, people were laughing behind me. My pants were ripped all the way down to my ankles, my entire right leg was naked, and my thigh fat was floating in the air, visible to every stranger on the street…
It was one of the main commercial streets of the city, so at least hundreds of people saw my ripped pants, which literally exploded under the pressure of my leg. And the more people noticed, the louder the laughs, which brought even more attention to me, and even more laughs. I’d never felt so embarrassed in my life.
“Let’s get to the car to change clothes,” said my husband, in a quiet voice to try to calm me down. The car was about ten minutes away by foot, and every single step with my thigh fat exposed to everyone felt like public humiliation.
After ten minutes of absolute hell, I didn’t want to go shopping anymore. I slumped into the car, feeling completely defeated and humiliated, and told my husband that I just wanted to go home. We got back home, and I spent the whole evening crying and feeling miserable about my body.
My confidence was at an all-time low, and my self-esteem was gone. I didn’t want to put one single foot outside the house after this public incident.
I felt like the whole world was acting against me. And that’s when…
I decided to go on a quest to find a definitive solution to burn all my excess fat once and for all…
This incident hit me really hard. I could still hear the laughs of strangers in the street resonating in my head like a nightmare on replay. I couldn’t even go to the grocery store without feeling extremely paranoid and self-conscious about my body.
At my age, I still had decades of life in front of me, and I wanted to enjoy life to the fullest, without this permanent frustration that was holding me back. So I swore to myself I would do everything in my power to finally drop the pounds for good.
I spent weeks looking online for new weight loss solutions that would work, even for desperate cases like me. I read hundreds of articles, watched dozens of weight loss videos on YouTube, even sent long emails to doctors and professional nutritionists to ask for advice…
But no matter where I looked, I couldn’t find any diet or weight loss strategy that I hadn’t already tried over the past 6 years.
So I thought:
“Maybe that’s just the way I am.”
“Maybe it’s my destiny to remain fat.”
“Maybe I just can’t lose weight because of my genes.”
After all, both my mother and her mother were overweight nearly all their lives. So perhaps I’d just been unlucky in the genetic lottery, I thought.
But then, I made a desperate move that would turn out to be one of the best weight loss decisions I’ve ever made…
I swallowed my pride and gave a ring to Karen, the wife of my husband’s good friend, who literally looks like a student cheerleader at the age of 47.
It wasn’t easy for me to call her because, to be frank, I was secretly jealous of her. She was eating everything I was dreaming of eating, except she didn’t gain a single inch of fat.
I explained to her that I was looking for a solution to burn my excess fat as quickly as possible, and I complimented her on her flawless figure and asked her how she was able to maintain such an impressive body. And her answer surprised me…
“Well, actually, I wasn’t always like that. Believe it or not, but before I met Dan a few years back, I was nearly 28 pounds overweight. I tried almost every diet you could think of, but these diet plans seemed to work for everyone except me… But then, I tried intermittent fasting recommended by my doctor, and since then, I’m living my best life.”
Now, I was feeling even worse. I had tried intermittent fasting in the past as well, but it didn’t work so well. I let her continue anyway…
“My doctor explained to me that when you fast for more than 12 hours, your body is out of glucose and is forced to tap into your fat reserves to find energy. When this fasting state is “on,” your body is burning so much fat per minute that it’s almost impossible not to lose weight over time if you do it every day. That’s how I torched up over 30 pounds, without doing any crazy exercises,” she explained.
“What I like about intermittent fasting is that it doesn’t really feel like a diet. You can eat pretty much whatever type of food you want, as long as you’re eating at the right time during the day. It’s all about when you eat rather than what you eat. That’s why I can eat pizza and mac & cheese every week and still fit in size 4 Levis’ jeans at 47… And with proper instructions, it’s much easier than people think.”
I said to her: “I tried fasting in the past, but my food cravings quickly came back to haunt me… What kind of fasting method are you using to maintain a slim body, and do you feel any cravings at all?”
“I’m using a customized intermittent fasting plan called DoFasting, which was recommended by my doctor. He told me that most fasting plans tend to fail because they follow a one-size-fits-all approach that is not suited to the needs of our unique body,” she told me.
“According to him, the DoFasting plan works for virtually everyone because it is tailor-made to your ‘metabolic needs.’ Basically, professional nutritionists personalize everything for you based on your daily schedule, unique eating preferences, age, weight, and so on. The plan gives you new food suggestions every day and tells you exactly when to eat to maximize fat burning during the day.”
“And the best part for me is that I almost never get food cravings by following this DoFasting plan because it gives me the flexibility to eat pretty much whatever I want in a certain time window. That’s why you saw me jumping on these margaritas the other day!”
I must say that even though Karen was very convincing, I was still EXTREMELY skeptical about this fasting plan. She made it look so easy…
But at the same time, she did say that she had tried a lot of different diets in the past, and these popular diets didn’t work for her either. So if this DoFasting plan worked for her, maybe it could work for me as well, who knows.
I decided to give it a shot and completed a 60-second quiz on the DoFasting website so that they could prepare a personalized fasting schedule for me.
I received my customized plan within an hour and started following it.
To be honest, I didn’t notice any major difference in my body during the first few days. And given how impatient I was, I already started to imagine the worst: that I would die prematurely from a cardiac arrest, leaving my son without a mother…
But when I got on the scale, I couldn’t believe my eyes…
I had lost 2.9 pounds! Granted, it was not life-changing or anything. But among everything I had tried in the past, nothing enabled me to drop weight so fast. And I could already feel my stomach being tighter than usual.
One week after starting the plan, I was still dropping weight quicker than I ever had with other diets. And most importantly, I didn’t feel any major food cravings. In fact, I felt pretty full during the diet, and I could still eat some of my favorite meals and desserts as part of the plan.
All I had to do was eat when the app told me to eat, and my body appeared to take care of the rest. It was much easier to follow this plan than I thought, and my mood was getting better and better every day.
Soon, I could see a very visible difference in the mirror. A good chunk of my belly fat was gone, my thighs were firmer, my waist was thinner, and my energy levels were through the roof. I was completely ecstatic.
My husband started to notice the results and was genuinely amazed. He started to shower me with compliments, which gave me a massive confidence boost…
In just a couple of months of continuing with this DoFasting plan, I lost a total of 36 pounds, which literally brought me back to the lean, tight body I had 10 years ago when I first met my husband. I felt like a newer, younger, much prettier self. It felt like a dream come true.
I can’t even tell you how confident I felt when I finally replaced all my clothes in the closet… it felt like I was finally the “real me,” and it’s one of the best feelings in the world.
After 6 years of struggle and pain, I finally had the slim, sexy body I had always wanted. And given that the DoFasting diet had now become “second nature” to me, I knew with 100% certainty that I would have no difficulty maintaining the same ideal body in the future.
All I did was get a personalized fasting plan and follow the instructions of DoFasting nutritionists.
At first, I was very skeptical. But given the life-changing impact it had on my body, I’m glad I gave DoFasting a shot.
Anyway, I hope this article will motivate other women like me who have been struggling with weight loss issues for years and that it will help as many people as possible get the lean, healthy body they’ve always wanted.
