Give Yourself the Gift of Good Health

Filed Under: General Health

The best give of all is the gift of great health and, as it turns out, it’s one you can give yourself. I’d like to share a few success stories from the Whitaker Wellness Institute. As these men and women show, successful, lasting weight loss can be a reality.

R.J.F, an incredibly young-looking 65-year-old, lost 80 pounds and has kept it off for three years by eating a “commonsense” diet and walking two miles a day. These lifestyle changes also helped return his heart function to normal.

Judy lost 70 pounds over two years by following a sensible diet, walking four miles a day, and getting her thyroid problems under control by supplementing with natural thyroid. She reports improvements in joint pain, hair loss, mood, and digestion.

Ryan, 22, lost 60 pounds in 2½ years by cutting out fast food and desserts. Friends from high school hardly recognize him.

Arthur lost 30 pounds over the course of 18 months by cutting his portion sizes down and walking regularly.

None of these patients turned to fad diets, powerful appetite suppressants, or diet drugs. They simply followed a healthy diet and exercise regimen, such as the one I advocate in the Diabesity Challenge and gave themselves the gift of good health.

If they did it, so can you!
