Dr. Mike Moreno is still with us and we're discussing his new book, "The 17 Day Kickstart Diet" Dr. Mike partnered with Jay McGraw, The Doctors executive producer on this book. Well, our next guest is a prime example of what it really takes to make the diet count. Check it out. (gentle music) Around six years ago, I noticed how I began gaining weight. I steadily put on over a hundred pounds. Earlier this year, I went to my doctor for my annual blood work. He said that I had diabetes and I needed to work on diet and exercise in order to get my diabetes under control.

It was pretty hard to take. It just all kind of hit me, I guess, at once. I was very disappointed in myself, very. After the initial feeling of defeat, major determination set in. And I knew that I had to make a change. And my sister had talked about the 17 day diet, and I never looked back. Within the first three to five days, I felt more energy. I could breathe better. I could move better. After three months, I was able to walk three miles, which felt very empowering, but there was still anxiety within me that I had not done enough. I was worried that when I went in to my doctor, he was going to tell me that I was still diabetic and that I had not gotten where I needed to be. Hi there, Brandy. Welcome to the show. Hi. I am so happy for you. Now, tell us, Brandy, after your second visit to the doctor, what kind of results did you see? I've lost over 100 pounds.

I started at 234 pounds and I am, as of today, I'm at 133 pounds. My diabetes are gone. My triglycerides went from 400 plus to 112. My BMI is in the normal range and I am currently weaning off of my blood pressure medication because my blood pressure is normal. Brandy, simply amazing! Congratulations to you.
Thank you so much. I'm so happy for you. Tell us how it's affected your life overall. It's indescribable, really. Just, I feel amazing. My confidence is so much better. My energy and my stamina. And it's just, it's amazing to feel like myself again. Brandy, I mean, what a change, but tell us, is this the end of your weight loss journey? I'm not done yet.
