This program has helped me to know HOW TO GET RID OF INFLAMMATION!! I was more desirous of getting rid of inflammation than loosing the weight so that is what I kept in mind. I found out that the weight goes as you follow this plan for eliminating inflammation out of your body. I was almost 140 lbs and now I am at 122 lbs, at 72 yrs. of age, and the inflammation seems to have mostly disappeared from my whole body in 6 full weeks. Now I am elated to keep following this plan to keep inflammation at bay. It's all about what goes in my mouth!!! I am learning what foods to totally stay away from and hoping I get the DNA testing back soon which will help me more on what specific foods I need to stay away from as I advance into the maintenance stage.
