How does Jackie feel 63 pounds lighter?

Interviewer: And so Jackie, how did you manage through the program? Please give us a sense of what a day was like and when you got hungry and didn't. 

Jackie: This was the easiest thing I ever did. Honestly, I've done every diet out there. It is three proteins a day, five fruits, and vegetables. It's that simple. It really is. There's no weighing. There's no measuring. You know what you're allowed to have and what you're not, and the supplements really did help. They were no cravings. I wasn't hungry, and I was a big girl. I ate a lot. I can honestly say I wasn't hungry. And I had a great support system. The people in the office are lovely. You're there every week to be weighed and measured, and they're there when you need them. My family was wonderful. It was the easiest thing I ever did. 

Interviewer: But how did you cope when you know you're a big girl, and you're used to eating a large volume of food, and then suddenly you're down to a much smaller portion? So how do you manage that kind of psychologically? 

Jackie: It's scary at; first, it really is. But the best part of this psychologically is you go in there and three pounds, three pounds every week. The scale never went down less than three pounds and that was just an amazing thing. How much more motivation do you need then? This is working. I can do anything for 60 days. I couldn't do anything for 90 days.

Grandpa lost over a 100 pounds! What was it like? How do you feel?

Jim's advice would be to follow the plan exactly as it is laid out in the book. This includes eating vegetables and protein, taking supplements, not eating between meals, and weighing your food. Jim found the plan simple to follow, and although it was a constant battle to stop snacking between meals, he did not feel overly hungry because the meals were filling. He also recommends finding a support system, such as a spouse or friend, who can help with meal planning and preparation.


Finally, Jim emphasizes the importance of determination and commitment to achieving weight loss goals.

Pat: So how difficult was it for you? 

Jim: Well, it wasn't bad at all, really. My wife adopted all the cooking for me and it's really simple to do. The diet is… All you have to do is follow the plan. The book has all the information need on it. All you have to do is follow it and then just stick to it, you know, stick to the diet. And I was…you know, I was determined to make the…lose the weight because the way I looked before. When I was that big, when I was 331 pounds, I wouldn't go near water because I didn't want to get a harpoon thrown in my behind. 

Pat: Oh, my goodness. And so when you say that it's fairly easy to do. I mean, is it essentially vegetables and protein? 

Jim: That's correct. And the supplements that you take. You know, it's this, you know, simple diet plan. It's just not eat between meals, which most people who are heavy do, which I had to stop doing, but it's a constant battle to do that, to... 

Pat: Right. And but yet you didn't feel so hungry… 


Jim: No, I didn't!
