Weight Loss: 63 lbs*

Those hiking trails that scared her a year ago now make her smile as she keeps up with her family on adventurous hikes.
- OPTIFAST® New You Winner

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.

**The success stories of OPTIFAST® New You Contest winners are representative of those individuals only and do not represent all OPTIFAST® patients.
