BEFORE & AFTER
Lost 40 lbs
I came to Diet Doctors Medical for the first time over 10 years ago. I lost the weight and kept it off for a long time. But then I got lazy, didn't exercise like I should and "treated" myself to all the goodies that load the weight back on. And I did!!! I've returned for their help many times because it's the only thing that works. My husband will attest to that.
Dr. Phillips asked that I be perfectly honest with my statement here. I did try NutriSystem, but it was overpriced, offered no help or advice, and the food was horrible. Another problem was that every time (and there have been a few) my weight got out of my control, I felt so embarrassed to go back again. I kept putting it off, which was to my detriment. Every time this happened, my husband would tell me to go back and see Dr. Phillips because it always works!!!
My experience with Diet Doctors and their staff:
Dr. Phillips and her staff provide a good example because they work at it too. They remind folks that not everyone has the kind of metabolism that burns your calories and carbs. The only thing they want for anyone joining the program is for you to be healthy and feel good.
So this time, when I started the program once again, it finally sunk in that no matter what, this is a way of life. One might slip back, but there's nothing (but yourself) to keep you from getting back on track and take care of yourself. This program is so easy to follow - one sheet of paper, that's it!!!
What motivated me to lose weight?
Keeping the extra weight off is the first step to being healthy. There is diabetes in my family and I don't want to develop Type II, which my doctor informed me could happen with our family history. Besides, who doesn't enjoy looking good?
What were/are my biggest challenges?
My biggest challenge is BREAD. At Diet Doctors they show me how to manage my food with the key being protein intake. Proteins keep these carb cravings under control and in accordance with my food list.
Special tip(s) I would like to share:
After all the time these wonderful and kind people at Diet Doctors have spent with me, and the years I've come back again and again, I have finally realized that they want you to make this a way of life and not just a diet. They want you to enjoy your life and be healthy.
The best thing I can say is that I for one am glad that this program is there to help me, and because of my age it's more important than ever to keep in good shape and be healthy.
