Weight Loss: 194 lbs*

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.
- OPTIFAST® New You Winner

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® Program. 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 the OPTIFAST® Program 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!
