Your 'Aha' weight-loss moments
Needed to make a change
The program sounded very do-able and nutritional, therefore, I made the decision to get started and invest in my health. I ate a nutrient dense food plan consisting of organic foods and never felt hungry, ever! I didn’t have to count calories, weigh food, or purchase pre-packaged food. I could even still eat the steak & egg special at my favorite restaurant which was a staple for me. I was making my own meals and saving a ton of money from not eating out as often as I did. The food was delicious and I never felt deprived of anything.
Initially, I saw dramatic weight loss, but didn’t get too excited as I figured it was just water weight. Every day, however, I was down a pound or more. By day 30 I was 37 lbs. lighter! I have a friend who had weighed 484 lbs. and opted for gastric bypass surgery. When I talked to him two months into the program, I was down 62 lbs. He informed me that he hadn’t even lost that much with his surgery that cost $17,000.
Optimal365 is about Real People, Real Food, and Real Results. The staff is incredibly kind, caring, and professional. They supported me throughout the whole process and I couldn’t be happier with my weight loss and my decision to do this ‘miracle’ program. I never felt hungry, didn’t have cravings, and will power was not necessary to follow the plan as I was eating 5 times a day. I feel much better and have a lot more energy.
