Jim's Story - 45 Pounds Lost, Blood Pressure Normal Again

*Because everyone is unique, individual results vary.

My doctor said I was a candidate for pre-diabetes, and I knew I had to do something because I didn’t want to get diabetes like both of my parents. I was prescribed the drug Metformin to help with my condition. My wife insisted that I go to Nutritional Weight & Wellness for nutrition counseling to see if I could turn things around.

I Felt Motivated

I’ll be honest, I dreaded going to my first appointment with Darlene because I thought that all my favorite foods would be taken away and it would be miserable to do. The reality was much different. It was a two-way conversation with Darlene. She showed me how to modify how I cook my favorite foods and make other small changes so I could ease into it. I walked out of Darlene’s office feeling motivated. Her advice made sense and I believed I could make the changes she suggested.

Lower Blood Pressure, Cholesterol and Weight

After eating this way for six months, my energy level was amazing and I could tell my brain was much sharper. My blood pressure and cholesterol numbers went into normal ranges, and I was sleeping better. In fact, I found I no longer needed my CPAP machine to sleep at night (I had been diagnosed with sleep apnea four years prior). My blood work also showed that I no longer needed to take Metformin. This was such a relief because I knew the medication wasn’t good for me to keep taking. Along with everything else, my belly was shrinking. When I first saw Darlene, I weighed 220 pounds, but 10 months into my new eating plan, I weighed in at 175 and have been holding steady at this new healthy weight. I know I will never be overweight again as long as I eat this way.

Prior to my nutrition counseling, I didn’t realize just how unhealthy I truly was. Now, I’m happier and enjoying life more, and that’s priceless. This is the best thing that’s happened to me in years.
