Besides, she is a beautiful wife to the Los Angeles Chef Gerard Belliveau and a wonderful mom to her kids Jasper and Zoey. Like others, even she was struggling with her weight loss goals. But, later, after long years of research, Jody came across an effective diet remedy named – HCG. Further, here’s an excerpt of her interesting journey with pharmaceutical grade HCG…
When and how Jody decided to go for this HCG program?
According to Jody, she was a healthy girl from her young age itself and used to try everything needed to attain the weight loss goals. But, nothing could offer her the needed positive results. Sometimes, she used to get upset thinking – now the only option left is to go for the surgery. Luckily, one day while browsing through the monthly mailer she came across the HCG diet. This made her excited – thinking she would be able to lose one pound every day.
The next day, she made an appointment with the doctor – where she was asked not to have any alcoholic contents while being on the HCG diet. Equally, they also showed her how to carry the self-injections. Seriously Jody used to hate the needles. But, she had a firm determination in her mind that somehow I have to get rid of my body fat. Otherwise, I would be the sufferer. Later, she ordered for the real, pharmaceutical grade 100% HCG and started with the schedule on Dec 5th, 2009 and used to have 5 calories every day. In addition to HCG, she used to have some injectables like B12 to boost her energy levels. Overall, she lost about 80 pounds of weight (simply within 6 months of its usage).
