Avid traveler Justin was diagnosed with prediabetes, high blood pressure and sleep apnea, and the things he once loved to do with his family – including air travel and visiting amusement parks -- were becoming “unbearable,” if not impossible.
Recognizing the warning signs, Justin knew he would have to make a change or risk his health issues becoming “more severe.” That’s when he began searching for a weight-loss program that could work for him.
After completing the OPTIFAST® Program, a 150-lbs lighter* Justin revealed, “I'm able to travel [on planes] with no extenders or extra seats and participate in all of our family’s activities when on vacation. I even participated in some new activities I could not have before [because of] my weight, such as ziplining!”
Justin also discovered a newfound love for running as part of his commitment to a healthier lifestyle, explaining, “It keeps me accountable and gives me something to look forward doing [for] my fitness.
This past year alone, I have participated in five 5K races, and [this year] I will be participating in my first half marathon ever!”
“The program is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ … it can be tailored to your lifestyle and specific goals,” said Justin about why the OPTIFAST® Program worked for him. “It literally [can] change your life. … You will learn how to re-think and change your relationship with food and fitness. You won’t go through this
journey alone; you will have an amazing team of professionals guiding you through the entire process.
Your weight loss team and OPTIFAST® [Program] give you the tools and resources to be as successful as you want to be.”
