Candi and Lyndsey, both teachers, say their friendship began when they met at a table of decadent treats at their school — and then they continued to pack on the pounds together. Watch their story here. When they were finally ready to stop sabotaging each other's weight loss efforts and start making permanent change, Dr. Phil agreed to help them using the tools in his bestselling book, The 20/20 Diet: Turn Your Weight Loss Vision Into Reality.
They've now lost a collective 75 pounds and have become as dedicated to eating healthy and exercising as they once were to eating chips and drinking margaritas! Watch the video above as the two women get candid in a video diary, including their hilarious motivator when they need it most.
A typical user of the Dr. Phil 20/20 Diet Plan can expect to lose about one to two pounds per week.
