Leo's Story - 47 Pounds Lost* & Counting

*Because everyone is unique, individual results vary.


At a visit with my physician, he said to me “If you want to be able to walk in 20 years, you need to lose weight.” This was my wake-up call that it was time to get serious about dropping weight. Since I had been listening to the Dishing Up Nutrition podcast and liked what I was hearing on the show, I decided to give Nutritional Weight & Wellness a call.

I Never Realized How Inflamed My Body Was

I made a nutrition counseling appointment with Jennifer and signed up for the Nutrition 4 Weight Loss program. After the first four weeks, the best description I can come up with is that I felt less “swollen.” I had to buy new pants, and I could tell there was less pressure in my hands when I made a fist. It was a strange feeling because I never realized just how inflamed my body was in the first place, but day-by-day I felt less swollen in my body. I remember how I used to have to rock back and forth a few times to get myself off the couch, but now I can simply stand up because the extra weight is gone!

I Achieved My Goal

My number one goal in doing the Nutrition 4 Weight Loss program was to lose weight, and that’s exactly what I achieved. So far I’ve lost 47 pounds* and 19.5 inches, and I will continue to follow the program to lose more weight. What’s so great about this program is that it’s simple! And sustainable—unlike other things I’ve tried in the past that didn’t stick. I know this is an eating plan I can follow easily for the rest of my life. I’ve been pleased with the amount of meat I’ve been able to eat, and I never feel hungry.

It has been great to have Jennifer supporting me along the way. She put together an eating plan for me that works and has been answering my questions as they come up. Jennifer boiled it down and made everything so easy for me to understand. I’m looking forward to losing more weight now that I understand this simple pattern of eating in balance.
