Janet*'s Success Story

2020 Contest Winner

Janet and her daughter were visiting colleges together when Janet had to take a sudden break in the middle of the tour to sit down because of excruciating lower back pain. “My daughter never complained,” said Janet, “but I could tell how much it bothered her. At that point I knew I had to do something.”

After trying to lose weight on her own and dealing with the dreaded yo-yo effect, she talked to a friend who had achieved success on the OPTIFAST® Program and decided to give it a try herself.

So how did it go? Gushed Janet, who is celebrating her 70-lb. weight loss*, “I feel like a completely different person. I get up on the weekends and head out the door to run errands and get my workout in. After work I head straight to the gym. It is amazing. I used to come home from work and lay down for a nap to make it through the evening.”

As for her advice for others looking to shed some pounds, Janet revealed, “OPTIFAST® was the best decision I have ever made [but] it is not a miracle. It is a lot of hard work and you have to be ready to make the commitment.”
