WASHINGTON, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Just half a year ago, Mona Aaron's personal "time bomb" was ticking. This Waldorf, Md.-based mother in the prime of her life weighed 212 pounds and wore a size 18. She also took five different medications to manage three life-threatening conditions -- diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. Treating the symptoms of her medical conditions on a daily basis was a regular brutal reminder that Mona's life was at risk and that only a serious change in diet and lifestyle would change the course of her life.

Mona listened as JJ described how the three-phase DEM System™ could shed stubborn body fat, reverse health problems, and restore the body to optimal health. She immediately bought JJ's bestselling book, Lose Weight Without Dieting or Working Out! (See sample chapters at http://jjsmithonline.com/products/lose-weight.html.) " Six months later, I weigh 155 pounds, wear a size 8, and no longer need medication for my diabetes and cholesterol," said Mona ( http://jjsmithonline.com/feature-story/mona-aaron.html). "My blood pressure medication has been reduced to 10 mg, and I am hoping to be off of that medication on my next doctor's visit next month." While some may view Mona's case as exceptional, it's anything but a stroke of luck, according to JJ, who designed the weight loss system with only one goal in mind: fast results. A natural, stress-free strategy, the DEM System features solutions to detoxify the body, balance hormones, and boost metabolism to burn fat effortlessly. Uniquely, JJ's methodology melts fat without an exercise regime or rigorous workout, and it does not force people to consume diet food, count calories, or starve themselves. It's simply a proactive approach to nutrition -- tailored to the distinct demands and sensitivities of women's bodies. A growing number of women like Mona are using this approach to defeat obesity and associated medical problems.
