I have struggled with my weight since I have been in my teens. I gradually put on weight, and tried to become more physically active by joining some sports teams. I wrestled for my high school and played soccer. When I went to college I played more soccer, and joined the lacrosse team. That helped quite a bit.
It was after college that I had more trouble with my weight. Within three years of graduation, I had put on more than 50 additional pounds. Now, as the father of two young boys in my early thirties, I wanted more than ever to get in shape, lose weight, and be healthy.
My doctor told me about this revolutionary diet called Medifast. He told me that it was more than an eating plan; it creates the proper conditions in the body to drop the weight fast, and that many people lose between eight and twenty pounds a month.
I knew that I needed to lose almost 70 pounds to be at my goal weight, and the idea of losing so much a month really appealed to me. He also told me that they offer counseling to help you adjust and come up with a plan to keep the weight off once you lose it. They offer shakes, soups, and meal plans that will keep almost anyone satisfied, and they are a diet food delivery service.
When I got home that day, I was armed with all the information my doctor gave me. I looked up the website, and I was happy to see that they offer a program specially made for men. I have seen other similar programs, and usually they don’t offer something different for each gender.
I looked at some of the reviews that people had written about Medifast, and saw that there are many men who have a similar experience to mine. Gaining weight in the teens, and putting on more after college when the activity level drops. For the first time, I knew I wasn’t alone in my desire to lose weight, and that men have weight issues too.
I place my order, I got the four week enhanced package, and within days, I was able to begin. Now, it has been six months, and I have lost all the weight that I wanted to lose. I am in the process of getting into the maintenance phase, and I have no intention of ever weighing that much again.
