Cindy

Scottsdale, AZ

Total weight loss: 63 lbs.

In the summer of 2017, Cindy had enough. Enough sleepless nights, enough heart issues, enough inflammation and pain in her legs and joints* that kept her from enjoying fun outdoor hikes with her family. She felt lost, discouraged, and overwhelmed. She wondered if this was all she had to look forward to after turning 60.

A friend of Cindy’s who had achieved success with the OPTIFAST® program suggested she try it. She was ready! Cindy weighed 187 lbs. when she started the OPTIFAST® program and now weighs 124 lbs.**

A year later her life has changed in ways she never thought possible! She’s shed the unhealthy extra 60 lbs. she carried for years, and as a result regained her good health and long-lost energy.

Those hiking trails that scared her a year ago now make her smile as she keeps up with her family on adventurous hikes.

* Maintaining a healthy weight is associated with reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease. These benefits are not limited or attributed to weight loss with the OPTIFAST® Program specifically. No case is typical.

**OPTIFAST® patients who actively participate in a 26-week program typically lose approximately 50 lbs. OPTIFAST® patients typically maintain a 31- lb. weight loss after 1 year, 20 lbs. after 2 years, and 16 lbs. after 3 years from starting the program.

Eugene

Schaumburg, IL

Total weight loss: 194 lbs.

Eugene is so excited about his 194-lb. weight loss* that he wants to stand in the middle of a busy downtown Chicago street holding a sign that says, “I just lost 194 lbs.—Ask Me How!” Eugene had his opportunity—we filmed him in Times Square during the NEW YOU contest prize weekend!

Obese his whole adult life, Eugene tried everything under the sun and was never able to “stick it out”. He is so grateful for his amazing transformation, he just wants to share it with everyone.

Eugene has a unique perspective regarding the cost of the OPTIFAST®. He calculated how much money he was spending on fast food and junk food on an average per week and was embarrassed at the outrageous amount! In the end, he says that the OPTIFAST® program helped him lose weight and save money at the same time! He even says that with seeing his results and how much OPTIFAST® has helped him, he even would have paid more for the program!

Eugene’s results speak for themselves—just look at his before and after pictures!

*OPTIFAST® patients who actively participate in a 26-week program typically lose approximately 50 lbs. OPTIFAST® patients typically maintain a 31-lb. weight loss after 1 year, 20 lbs. after 2 years, and 16 lbs. after 3 years from starting the program.

Kristin

Columbus, OH

Total weight loss: 65 lbs.

For Kristin, the three words, "I love summer" were never words she understood as an adult. She would hear people say this, roll her eyes, and convince herself that they were lying.

Kristin had been overweight most of her adult life and she didn't realize until this year that summer is HER favorite season too! She no longer finds herself wanting to hide indoors.

Kristin’s starting weight was 240 lbs. and her current weight is 175 lbs.* —a 65-lb. weight loss! Because of the weight loss, Kristin feels so much different physically and still gets surprised at everything she can do.

She used to find herself giving an automatic "no" response to any type of activity, including just even just sitting outside in 80-degree weather. Now Kristin now looks for things to do outside and doesn’t even think twice about it. Among other things, due to the weight loss, Kristin could completely stop her medications for diabetes and high blood pressure** that she had been on for years. The OPTIFAST® program gave Kristin back the life that she hadn’t realized she lost!
