Everett didn't struggle with her
weight as a child. But she became
a mom, and she started to gain
weight. Two more babies added more pounds. As the years passed,
two failed marriages, low self-esteem and depression triggered
unhealthy eating habits that brought her up to a size 16.
She relocated from Minnesota to Texas four years ago, and the
move motivated her to take care of her health. She took Zumba
classes two to three days a week,
but after six months she wasn't

As she improved her eating, she
followed a weight-loss program that
promotes five to six smaller, healthy meals a day. A container system
helps her measure serving sizes and balance healthy fats, proteins
and carbohydrates.
Her experience with Zumba taught her that she
eventually gets bored with workouts, so now she
chooses a different exercise four or five times a week.
She might run, take a Zumba class or do a strength
or cardio workout in the gym.
Everett has dropped to a size 10 and is committed to her plan, both for her own health and
as an example to her sons, ages 17, 20 and 22.
"Your whole mentality changes when you lose
weight. You become more healthy spiritually,
physically and emotionally," she says.
THE EXPERT'S TAKE: "Clean eating
I define as highly nutritious, less processed, more from
the earth and less from the pantry," says physician nutrition
specialist Adrienne Youdim, MD, a fellow of the American College of
Physicians. "It's a great strategy. No matter what other method I
prescribe, that's part of the equation."
