"My friend once asked me what my motivation was for starting my business. I'm here to change people’s lives for the better through food and love. I know it’s hard to believe I was 247 pounds, but I was so swollen with toxic waste in my body. And even when I got rid of some of the toxicity, I still had residual weight I was still on medications. And when I finally got rid of the medicine and started clearing out some of the foods that were weighing me down, it was not until then that my body completely cleaned out toxic waste. I'm Diana Stobo and this is my story.
As a child, I loved food. My family was centered around the kitchen. It became so apparent to me that food was my emotional crutch; when things seemed to be sad or missing, I wanted to eat. And I even found that sometimes, when I was depressed I wouldn’t eat at all. So I was in constant flux around food. And by the time I was in my early teens, I had become quite a chubby child and it really affected my self-esteem, I mean I always had that dream of being the tall thin girl but I was struggling for a while to stay in a normal size range that seemed acceptable. It was a challenge.
So after I was married, I tried to get pregnant several times and I had to do in vitro fertilization in order to give birth to my babies. Through all that toxic synthetic hormones, my body just expanded to enormous toxicity. And actually, when I gave birth to my twins, they called it toxaemia – a very appropriate name for a toxic overload.
Since my upbringing was so spectacularly surrounded around food, food was an integral part of our life as well. The children and I celebrated around food; we always had parties, made sure that there are barbeques on the weekend and it became our existence. I got so used to being bigger that I just started telling everybody I was big boned, that this is just the way I am. I'm a very tall person and this is the way I'm going to be. I was getting settled and comforted at the ripe old age of 35. I had thyroid issues; I had what they call chronic fatigue syndrome. So I was completely unaware that the medication I was taking was also influencing the toxic environment of my body. It seemed like there was a name for everything that ailed me, but nobody had the cure.
Until one day, I had a bleeding ulcer that led me directly to the emergency room. I left that hospital with another bottle of pills. This is the pivotal moment of my life. I knew something had to change. I immediately went to the library, picked out books, learned about nutrition, immersed myself in how I can cure my own disease. So I threw the medicine away and I began to look at food as my medicine. I focused on the nutritional value of the foods I was eating and came up with a list of toxic foods that I immediately had to take out of my body. I posted this list prominently on the front of my refrigerator and every time I went to go reach for food, I looked at that list to make sure that none of the foods I was eating had anything to do with this list. Within 10 days, I dropped 10 pounds.
People were noticing a difference immediately. “Wow, what’s changed about you? You look lighter, you look happier, you seemed calmer.”
I started writing recipes down, I started blogging, I videotaped a lot of what I was doing. I started to write my story. I really loved helping people. I took such great pride in their transformation and it was the next big aha, it came to me. I can actually help people transform their lives one meal at a time and this is exactly how "Get Naked Fast" started. It was me and my story and being able to put it in a guide, just stripping away the foods that weigh you down, a pamphlet that people can go through and say, I can do this, too.
To all you out there who don’t think that you can make that change towards better health, towards feeling better about yourself every single day, I'm here to tell you that you can do it one meal at a time."
