Bruce lost 60.2 lbs in 19 weeks.
How has being a patient of Dr. Tague’s Nutrition Solutions program affected your life?
I’ve struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember and have endured the stigma that comes with obesity, but now I feel like I’m making a fresh start and the old self-talk is being replaced with a positive self image.
Tell us about any sense of renewed energy or vitality?
Lugging around all the extra weight for so many years was affecting my activity in ways I didn’t realize. Now that l’ve reached my goal, stairs and other physical tasks I avoided are now no problem.
In what ways has your health improved?
I was diagnosed with diabetes recently but after achieving my goal weight, my lab values have all returned to normal.
What changes have others in your life noticed?
The main thing people notice is my change in appearance – saying things like “you really look good” and “I’m proud of you.” I’ve also received multiple inquiries about how I was able to accomplish my weight loss.
Which Meal Replacement was your favorite? Why?
The ones that come to mind are the Vanilla Crunch Delight Bar, Cinnamon Bar, Vanilla Creme Wafers and Chocolate Pudding/Shake. I couldn’t believe how good these products taste and still be good for me. No dietetic flavors detected.
What did you appreciate about the Center for Nutrition?
I would tell them to take a chance on themselves and step out on faith. If you follow the program, you will lose weight. You also need to begin with the mindset that this will be a life-long commitment, not a quick fix and done.
Do you have any additional comments that you’d like to share?
All of the staff were very encouraging throughout the process. It was nice to have so many people cheering me on toward success.
