I am Bill S. and I am a Florida state who trooper. In my job, I patrol the Florida Turnpike and end up sitting in my car and cruiser for more than 12 hours a day! When I first Dr. Lipman a year ago I weighed more than 250 lbs and was gaining 30 lbs a year. Some of the weight gain was due to my change in assignment and the need to commute over 60 miles one way to get to my new station.
I had to stop working out because I simply did not have the time. Mandatory overtime did not help. Dr. Lipman asked me first to describe my eating habits. I told him I had only a cup of coffee for breakfast because I was not hungry and in a hurry in the early morning. I then had several cans of Pepsi during the morning and afternoon which I kept in a cooler I carried in the car. Often I could not eat lunch Until 2 or 3 pm when I pulled into burger restaurant at the rest stop and ordered a double hamburger with cheese, large French Fries and a large regular soda. I buy a snack or two for the driving. My wife makes me a healthy dinner of protein, carbs and salads.
The most important reasons for my weight gain were the sodas, skipping breakfast and the fast food lunches. I lost 20 lbs over the first 3 or 4 weeks on Dr. Lipman’s plan. I hope to continue my weight loss with all of the new foods I found in Dr. Lipman’s plan.
